Early NBA trade deadline buyers & sellers with Amin Elhassan | Good Word with Goodwill
Before the NBA trade season begins, Amin Elhassan talks with Vincent Goodwill on the Good Word with Goodwill podcast about some unsuspecting buyers and sellers.
On the Good Word with Goodwill podcast, former Phoenix Suns front office member Amin Elhassan talks with Vincent Goodwill about early NBA trade season buyers and sellers, starting with Bradley Beal's (again) injury and what it's like mentally.
The defending Eastern Conference champion Miami Heat are shooting well but may be willing to trade Kyle Lowry's expiring contract for offensive help.
The Sacramento Kings, who have been linked to Zach LaVine in trade rumours, are next, but Amin doesn't think they should try to sign a star this season.
While discussing the New Orleans Pelicans as buyers, Vinnie and Amin discuss Zion Williamson's diet and weight. Shaquille O'Neal and Charles Barkley mocked him on TNT for being out of shape, therefore they should talk to Zion about it.
Zion was drafted in the same class as Ja Morant, who has had different challenges remaining on the court. Amin explains why Zion and Ja needed to be NBA superstars and why they seem to be wasting the chance.
Atlanta Hawks are no better than a year ago, prompting talk that they may take it down and rebuild. Trae Young doesn't play defence and isn't loved by NBA players, so the main dilemma is whether to rebuild around him again or go on.
Cleveland may trade Donovan Mitchell before he wants a contract deal after a poor start. As Vinnie describes why he feels Evan Mobley should take over, Amin explains why that's difficult following a playoff run.
Finally, the Golden State Warriors dynasty appears to be over. Vinnie says LeBron James' success has changed how we view dynasties, and Amin has advise for the front office.
