At times, we can all be wrong – whether we like to admit it or not. NBA teams can be wrong, too.
Sometimes, they invest in the wrong guy. The key is admitting it before you compound your problem.
After all, this isn’t an exact science. For example, take the Atlanta Hawks. When they acquired Dejounte Murray, they had a plan.
His elite point-of-attack defense was supposed to compensate for Trae Young’s struggles on that end of the floor.
Unfortunately, they looked like a bad offensive fit this year. With Murray’s limitations as a shooter, he wasn’t able to compliment Young on the offensive end.
Could the Hawks send him to the Miami Heat this summer?
