On this episode of Coast 2 Coast, Austin and Dante make use of ESPN’s NBA Trade Machine to improve teams around the league in the short and long term. Taking into account draft picks and salaries, the two discuss three different types of trades: must-do, hopeful, and reach deals.
As the league continues to move players at a quicker pace than Golden State’s offense, Austin and Dante provide an in-depth look at multiple teams on the brink of greatness and rebuilds. Following the trade talk, the duo reflect on last night’s Warriors-Thunder game and the last week of New York Knicks mishaps.
