If that is a consensus, then great. That's how I see it, given EJ's play over the last 18 months. Could it change? I suppose, yes. Do I hope it changes? Definitely.

But if that is a consensus, then looking at current return, Sherman overpaid big in that trade.

I disagree. It's probably the 2nd biggest trade the organization has ever made (arguable), and most certainly is the biggest trade they've made in their 'rebuild era'. And there is genuine question as to whether it helped or hurt the rebuild, and genuine question whether the Avs' GM overpaid in the trade.

It makes perfect sense that it would be a focus of discussion.
