6. David Griffin and Trajan Langdon put on a front-office clinic beginning with the trade of Anthony Davis, which brought back Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, Josh Hart and a slew of future draft picks. One of those picks, this year's No. 4 overall selection, New Orleans traded to the Hawks in exchange for the Nos. 8 and 17 picks, where they took Jaxson Hayes and Nickeil Alexander-Walker, who were both summer league head-turners and should be able to contribute right away. Oh, and by they way, they also got some guy named Zion Williamson with the No. 1 overall pick and added veterans Derrick Favors and JJ Redick. To lose a star like Davis, in a small market, and come out immediately with an arguably better team RIGHT NOW to go with a trove of assets that give you one of the brightest futures in the league ... that is incredible.

Sad to leave NOLA to AZ; going into ministry

not sure how they figure that if we got immediately better with the Davis trade, we are 3 spots behind the team we traded him to
Since the title of this article is "Top 10 offseasons," vs. "Top 10 teams," the Pels should have been listed at #3, IMO. In fact, the last part of their narrative (about the Pels) says it all:
