Okobo is owed more guaranteed money than Lecque. He basically swapped him for nothing if he wants to trade away Elie. It wasn't risky at all, but it was a good move and he certainly could have said "we have enough PGs now so no need to sign someone else."specialsauce wrote: ↑Mon Jul 15, 2019 11:58 pmHe gave an undrafted rookie who didn’t play in college a two year guaranteed (4 year) deal which likely brings an end to Elie Okobos time in Phoenix.INFORMER wrote: ↑Mon Jul 15, 2019 2:26 pmIt's not a gamble at all.

Yes, it is a gamble. Not high risk, but he is certainly betting on this kid.
