The first move was trading big man Al Horford, who the team signed to a 4-year, $109 million deal in the offseason.
A couple of anonymous NBA scouts sat with Mo Dakhil of Bleacher Report, and they praised the team’s moves.
The scouts told Dakhil of the Horford trade:
Anonymous scout No. 1 said of the Horford trade: “I thought it was a good first move, and not because they added Danny Green or Ferguson, but because they got rid of Al Horford.
Scout No. 2 echoed those sentiments, saying, “On the Philly side, you are trading the more talented player for a better fit.”
There is no doubt the moves make Philadelphia a better basketball team on paper.
