Trade Analysis: GBP-PHX & Mac Cardona's release

By Bigmatch

Let us talk about two quick roster moves done recently. 

GBP-PHX
Phoenix received Doug Kramer 
Globalport received Mick Pennisi

Basically an exchanged of two veteran bigs with contrasting style and size. 
Verdict: FAIR

TEAM ANALYSIS

GLOBALPORT
Received Mick Pennisi
Sent Doug Kramer


The addition of a JR Quinahan who is bigger than Kramer who can also make his presence felt inside, made Kramer very available. Exchanging him for a 35.4% 3FG career shooter who will be a good kick-out partner for Romeo and Pringle, is excellent.
Grade: A

PHOENIX

Received Doug Kramer
Sent Mick Pennisi


Pennisi is slow to keep up with the speed of their scheme so letting him go for a much faster and a better rebounder in Kramer is a good deal. Kramer is also eight years younger than Mick so in a long-term perspective, Phoenix wins this.
Grade: A 

WHO SHOULD TRY MAC CARDONA?
#1 Blackwater - Cardona will be a big boost to the bench of the Elite who lacks playmaking and scoring. 

#2 Meralco - Drafting Jonathan Grey and Ed Daquioag loaded up the 2 spot of the Bolts but how about a former player who can also play the 3? How about using him as a practice player to push the young guards?
