When the 76ers traded Michael Carter-Williams to the Bucks in the middle of last season, the decision to do so raised more than a few eyebrows.
Carter-Williams was the reigning rookie of the year, after all, and appeared to be Philadelphia's starting point guard for the future.
But due to concerns about his poor shooting (especially from three-point distance), along with what GM Sam Hinkie called the "rare availability" of a high future draft pick, the team dealt him nonetheless. And a report from Brian Geltzeiler of The Cauldron says the move didn't sit well with head coach Brett Brown or the team's president.
