Their GM is an idiot. Hope this has not been posted elsewhere.

Pritchard had offers for all three of Portland's 1st round picks or Gary Harris along with Denver's lottery pick and passed on both to take Oladipo and Sabonis.

So if they took the Denver deal they could have had Gary Harris and Donovan Mitchell (who looked good in the summer league).

If they took the Portland deal they could have had Zach Collins, Harry Giles, and Caleb Swanigan.

Unless we were willing to offer Ball or Ingram, stupid ass Pritchard was going to pass on Randle / Clarkson and two picks.

It might not go down in history this way, but they got way less for Paul George than OKC got for Harden. Indiana is also burdened with Oladipo's contract. All these new rules to protect owners from themselves and teams still find ways to muck things up.

I just used the actual picks. Could have been Donovan Mitchell, Kyle Kuzma and Caleb Swanigan.
