They've been improperly rebuilding since they let Amare leave.
They let Amare leave, which ended up being a smart move, but then took all the cap space they got from that by signing Hakim Warrick to a large contract for what he brings, Josh Childress to a ridiculously huge contract considering he hadn't been in the NBA for years and then trading for Hedo Turkoglu, who was at that time, the worst contract in the NBA. Instead of being patient and using the cap space properly, they blew all of it on terrible investments.
Then they hold onto Nash for too long until they eventually lose him via FA. They got some picks back which was nice for them, but then what did they do with the cap space he opened up? Offered a max contract to a guy with chronic knee issues, signed a solid but inconsistent Goran Dragic and a complete malcontent cancer in Beasley.
Again, their management is so incompetent that the idea of trading for a overpaid Rudy Gay is just par for the course. They're going to give away decent draft picks that could help the properly rebuild for a low potential immediate boost.
No way Hedo's contract was worse than Arenas's at that time or even Rashard Lewis. We also managed to turn Turk into Gortat and a first rounder.
I agree we held onto Nash for too long, but we were able to get 4 picks for him, one of which could be a loto pick this year. Not too bad.
Also, there is no way Beasley is a cancer. He's a goofball playing pretty poor ball right now, but there is no way he's a locker room cancer like people seem to think he is.
