With just four days to go until the trading deadline, the pedestrian Supermarket, which has been open for more than two months, finally got its first customer, a knight.On February 7, the Cavaliers traded Rubio, a lottery protected first-round pick in 2022, a second-round pick in 2022 (from Houston) and a second-round pick in 2027 (from Utah) to the Pacers for Le Vell, a second-round pick in 2022 (from Miami).In what looked like a two-player deal, it was a four-for-two deal in which the Pacers gave up their point guard scorers for an injured Rubio and a bunch of future assets.The purpose of the two teams is also clear, the Cavaliers initiated a unique “three high” lineup produced a miracle effect, in the point guard Garland’s needle lead, in the league unique, with a dark horse posture once killed into the east top three, is currently the fourth east.That has made the Cavaliers a force to be reckoned with in the Eastern Conference, and their ambitions are not just to make the playoffs, but to make the post-Lebron leap, even to win the championship.The Pacers, with Turner, Sabonis, Duarte, Le Vell and Brogdon in the starting lineup, have been one of the most disappointing teams of the season.So they decided to rebuild, and even Turner and Samasa were put on the shelves, focusing on training young people, mostly Duarte.Let’s start with Le vell’s performance as a Pacer this season, averaging 18.7 points, 3.8 rebounds and 4.4 assists in 31 minutes and shooting 44.7 percent from the field.Despite his injuries in the Nets, he is still an excellent no. 2 player with the ball and the ability to attack.He scored 42 points in a recent game with young players as the core of the offense, but his one-man combo against The Bulls — demar derozan and Vucevic — showed his explosive scoring ability.Although he is also tall and long, his defensive ability still needs to be improved.See rubio, has come, and the “golden boy” of the end of his career this season injury before bursting out of the vast amounts of energy, perfect, though, the responsibilities of a backup point guard is averaging 28.5 minutes of playing time sometimes even higher than the starting point guard, get 13.1 points and 4.1 rebounds, 6.6 assists, 1.4 steals while 3-pointers ability has improved.Unfortunately, he lost almost all of his value after the injury, and his contract expires in 2022, when he is likely to hit the free market.The Cavs have A clear goal of improving their record and making A competitive run in the playoffs.The team’s iron starting point guard is Garland, rich inside resources, so the three high can be free collocation, the only short board is no. 2 Okoruo.Okoro is 20 years of no.5 rookie, although dare to fight can defend, but the offensive end talent is limited, more to the air cut layup scoring, not good at long-range shooting, three point shooting rate is only 30.5%.Le vell will move directly into the starting position, not only sharing garland’s ball handling pressure, but also initiating offensive shooting, adding to the Mix.The defensive end features three high, even if the breakthrough has also been made up after the line of defense, obviously more advantages than disadvantages.The only downside is that it’s giving away too many future assets. The pacers are almost certain to have the 2022 first-round pick, and the Rockets’ high second-round pick is a quality asset.Given the pacers’ determination to rebuild, le Velle is A ball-handler who can’t be developed as A core. Turner and Samar could be traded, let alone Le Velle.The acquisition of the injured Marco Rubio is not to strengthen the team, but to balance the payroll, rubio is not expected to play one game for the Pacers before he is out the door this summer.The Pacers are looking for future assets, especially the 2022 draft pick. The 2022-23 season will be their first year of rebuilding, and they have chosen the future.Sending the heat’s second-round pick in 2022 to the bottom of the draft is worthless and no loss.That’s today’s trade express, and we’ll be updating you on the trade.Guys, please like it and support it
