Oladipo is looking to move on from Indiana. With cap space and the Toronto Raptors being one piece away, does it make sense for Masai Ujiri to go after him?
We know Masai Ujiri likes to gamble and we just witnessed the Toronto Raptors being one-shot creator away from beating the Celtics. And with Victor Oladipo looking for a new home this offseason, he can be the player that helps them get them over the top.
Oladipo, a former All-Star, has been struggling through injuries the past two seasons and has failed to crack 40 games once. However, we can’t forget just how great he was in the 2017-2018 season. Oladipo developed into one of the league’s finest guards and came incredibly close to beating Lebron James in the 2018 playoffs.
If you’re trading for Oladipo that is the Oladipo you are expecting to get if healthy. An All-NBA and All-Defensive caliber player — two feats that he accomplished in 2018. It’s a risk trading for a player who played only 55 games combined in the last two seasons, but if anyone is going to take a risk in the NBA, it has to be Masai Ujiri.
