I like those players, Speights is a pretty decent player and Henry might be pretty good in the right place.

It's a good deal for all the teams involved.

Memphis needed frontcourt help, and Speights provides depth. Henry, meanwhile, was buried on the bench and was playing very little.

Henry, though, should have an opportunity to get some minutes in New Orleans, who could use some perimeter scoring off the bench.

Philadelphia gets some cap relief and a couple of picks that could help them.

Nice deal for the three teams.

Good trade. I like Xavier, hopefully he isn't buried in NOH.

This could turn out to be a steal for the Hornets. Henry still has a lot of potential to grow.

Everyone but the Sixers win in this trade.

N.O gets a promising player that ,as you guys say, can deliver if he's in the right place.
Memphis adds a good replacement to Darrell Arthur.
The only thing that makes me understand why Phily gave Speights for nothing was him being a troublemaker.

ZeBo out for 2 months, Memphis needed another big that can play.
