Ryan Anderson (23-yr old, ’13 WARP 6.6, ORAPM 3.1, DRAPM 0.6, 4-yr, $34-36mm)
Gustavo Ayon (26-yr old, ’13 WARP 3.3, ORAPM -0.2, DRAPM -0.1, 2-yr, $3.4mm)
I love this sign-and-trade for the Hornets, who will have the league’s most improved player at a reasonable cost. Ayon impressed in his first year in the league, but Anderson is a much better bet. The 23-yr old Anderson will join Anthony Davis to give the Hornets one of the best young nucleus in the league. They should let Eric Gordon join the Suns, because he does not deserve a max contract.
