Sure, would it have been much more beneficial in the short term if we got a big, physical player back? For sure. Does this trade do anything to hurt us? No, if anything Thomas might have more value down the line. He will be cheap for longer.

So the trade doesn't help or hurt us. We have the same amount of assets right now as we did an hour ago. How is that poorly thought out? Same cap space, same amount of contracts on the books, same amount of draft picks available if we want to make a move for the short term benefit.
I just don't get why we used an asset this way... if you're going to trade him, then address a need. Why get more of what we already have too much of?
