This time last year, Danny Ainge was becoming the number one villain among New York Knicks fans. The Knicks’ trade rumors for Donovan Mitchell lingered for months before the Cavaliers swooped in and fulfilled Ainge’s request for the star guard.
New York fans don’t worry About doing business with Ainge This offseason, that’s good news. Instead, fans can now sit back and watch the exec successfully hoodwink other teams, especially the Hawks.
Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reported Monday afternoon that Atlanta trade john collins Go to Utah for Rudy Gay and a second-round pick. After years of speculation about the Hawks trading Collins, they finally did, but the return was disappointing.
Knicks fans can enjoy Danny Ainge blackmailing Eagles in long-awaited John Collins trade
Rumors of a John Collins trade have been floating around for about a decade, but it’s actually been three years. The 25-year-old was drafted by the Hawks in 2017 and his name has been popping up in trade talks. Finally, he embarked on the road to the Jazz.
Atlanta got a $25.3 million trade exception by waiving Collins’ contract, but the return was meager.Once upon a time, the Eagles were demanding first round pick In return for Collins, it’s part of the reason he’s stayed in Atlanta for so long. The Eagles watched his trade value drop so much that no one other than Danny Ainge could take advantage of Atlanta’s incompetence.
Wojnarowski reported that the Hawks and Jazz have been in talks for a year about a deal for Collins. It’s taken this long to come to fruition, and it’s no surprise that Ainge and Utah won this deal. See what Ainge got in return for Rudy Gobert last summer. The deal doesn’t pale in comparison to Atlanta’s trade for Collins.
The Eagles just acquired Danny Ainge. For Knicks fans, this couldn’t have happened to a better team.
