The man on Joakim Noah’s starting five all time Corey Brewer going to the Lakers for Lou Williams
Am I the only one here who thought Corey brewer was like a thousand years old. He’s actually only 30. Another thing I did not know is that he was still in the League. Does anyone outside of Houston even know this? He was on arguably the best college team of all time now just averaging 4 pts a game. The trade will bring Lou Williams into Houston and ship a first round pick to the Lakers. Both players have 2 years left on their contract.
Williams actually has a pretty good contract in NBA terms averaging 17 pts a game is owed $7 Mil a year for this year and next. With the Lakers not even close to going anywhere there isn’t much reason to keep this guy if you get a first round pick for him. The only player I’m keeping is Randle so hopefully Laker fans understand what needs to be done here. Build through the draft and just stink for a few years, Hit on a superstar free agent down the road and bam your good again. It’s going to take a few years but being so young it can happen sooner than later.
I think It’s interesting that if this all works out with the pick Magic will get the credit for this one where I’m sure this one was already set up. This is the first of many moves I’d hope they would get ready to do for draft picks. The Rockets really needed one more piece like a Lou to hopefully cement maybe a playoff run. This could put them over the top to at least competing with Golden state and the spurs.
