Building anything worthwhile takes time, takes the right personalities, takes the right leadership.
Our franchise is a very good example of how ownership and management can do it so badly, with multiple front offices and a multitude of different players.
Given what I've seen thus far I'm willing to allow Weaver and his crew time before I even start to think about trading away a home rum free agent signing who just chose to come here!

Condescending talk like this doesn’t lead to productive conversation.
But I will answer your previous post, even though the answers should be pretty clear. I want to build a championship caliber roster, with at least a decent shot at a title. That’s gonna take a few years, minimum, barring a Luka or LeBron level draftee falling in our lap.
I think Grant could be a piece of that roster, yes, but given the timeframe, he’ll get more expensive by then and may or may not be willing to take a lesser role on the team than he has now. He’s pretty clearly not an efficient #1 scorer if you game plan against him, because his shot is good, not great, and his handle is just ok. He’s better on spot ups and cuts, which requires other players drawing attention and passing well. We’re short a lot of pieces right now, and he could definitely look better with better teammates.
Now there are certainly a lot of factors and information I don’t have. If Jerami is well-respected and can help draw other players to Detroit, that has value. If we’d take a huge reputation hit with other players by dealing him, that should also be considered. If the return is good enough, though, it might still be worthwhile, especially if he’s moved to a destination he’s interested in.
It should be considered, and I bet Weaver is doing just that.
Nicely done. Or at least it made a lot of sense to me.
