Trade Analysis: GBP-PHX & Mac Cardona's release
Let us talk about two quick roster moves done recently.
Phoenix received Doug Kramer
Globalport received Mick Pennisi
Basically an exchanged of two veteran bigs with contrasting style and size.
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.
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.
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?
