For a young and struggling franchise like that, for a new player to come in excited about his new team and looking to lead the team to success, it beams hope to the fans, and to turn around and immediately trade him will probably be a turn off for the fanbase. Though it would be an extremely smart move to strike while the iron is hot with Johnson...
Absolutely. Trading Johnson should be the last thing on anyone's mind. With the Jackets luck, they'd acquire two guys who wouldnt want to be there, who would cry foul for two years until they were subsequently traded.
