I won't judge Ernie based on what he did under Abe. Frankly I find it tough to judge him because I think he does a lot of what Ted asks him to do. he had what has turned out to a be a solid offseason. Beal was a good pick, Webster was a very solid addition at a very cheap price, and the Okariza trade is turning out to be ok. Ariza is still terrible, but Okafor is playing really well and he his trade value has increased immensely. We could get a lot for him at this deadline or ideally in the summer if we choose to. If we don't, we still have an expiring who is giving us good production in the meantime. Now is this all enough to offset the terrible '11 draft? Is it enough to offset hiring Wittman? Not sure and a lot depends on how the season ends. I want to see what he does by the deadline before I evaluate him for next season.
Just to be clear, this is an evaluation of now...not his past. I would have 100% let Ernie go last offseason. I'm basing this off of the fact that he's here now, and what are we going to do next.
