We'll see what happens, as I said I'm fine with it and was just happy to get something done. I don't really consider any of that "smack talk," just found it a bit odd to be criticized for a relatively inconsequential January deal. I've made worse deals in my 3+ years in the league but I've finished 2nd and 8th in two of those 3 years so I'm happy to let everyone else value things the way they want.

Given the weird stuff that goes on in the draft it probably will be inconsequential.

That said if's I'm evaluating that deal I'd say Zeke won.

But as long as your happy with the deal from your side for keepers and time management I have no issue with it.

Malk wins the deal!

That's why I said "weird shit happens in the draft"

I'll let you steal 16.20 from me this season, yt, for the low low price of your 2nd Rd pick.
