This was a shocker. This was a shocker for every single team involved. So let us break it down by team: 1) The Cavs: Only a few months ago were salivating at the thought of pairing their young guns, Waiters and Irving, with King James. The thought of those talented scorers with such a talented creator would get anyone excited, but now Waiters is gone. That was a fast turn around for a player that the Cavs refused to give up in the Love trade (would they have been able to let him go instead of Wiggins?) 2) The Thunder: They have Reggie Jackson. They have Anthony Morrow. Oh and yeah, they have some guy named Russell Westbrook. Do they really need another high scoring guard? Yes, they are 19th in PPG, but another high scoring guard? They were only 19th because Durant and Westbrook have missed so many games. 3) The Knicks: Oh, my beloved Knicks. They, only a few months ago, were talking about making the playoffs. This was a playoff worthy team claimed the Zen Master. And now? They are officially the worst team in the NBA. Seriously, they just shipped out 2 of their top 5 players and received nothing back. They also now have the worst record in the NBA. So does this trade make sense for anyone? Yes, and no. It makes sense for the Cavs because they need some spark. It makes sense for the Thunder because they need "insurance" for Jackson (he is a RFA after this season). It makese sense for the Knicks because they clear away Smith's contract (almost 7 million against the cap next year). Did anyone see this coming? I doubt it. Is anyone a winner? I doubt it. Seems more like a desperation move by all teams involved.
