Hello again, and welcome to Baseline Buzz Hot Taeks!
The reason I never followed up with a trade deadline recap after the Hernangomez trade is… There was nothing to follow up with!
Which less me into:
THE TIMELINE THAT LED TO THE FIRING OF TRADER (TRAITOR?) CHO
1) Cho leaked to the media that Kemba Walker was available for trading, thus damaging the team’s relationship with their All-Star point guard.
2) A trade is made for Hernangomez. This is obviously a precursor to another trade.
3) Jordan leaks that he is looking at Kupchak as a possible replacement for Cho when Cho’s contract expires because he is pissed off about the Kemba fallout.
4) Cho says “eff it, if I’m getting fired anyway, I’m not making another trade.” The team is stuck with a bunch of PF/Cs.
5) Cho is fired.
Sound about right?
