It was an interesting article. As I'm sure most of us suspected, the W's had the D'Angelo contingency plan in place months ago. I'm sure they knew there was a strong chance they lose KD, and so they worked out scenarios to mitigate the impact. They were probably pretty happy, relatively speaking, to start hearing that KD was eyeing the Nets because the Nets would have to jettison a 23 year old scoring all-star, which set up nicely for a sign-and-trade. They got a lot done in a very short period of time, and I believe they are to be congratulated for the job they did. The draft choices are a wait-and-see evaluation, but their summer moves were as good as it gets, seems to me.
The roster is clearly a work in progress, but I'm confident the front office will continue to seek to upgrade at every opportunity. We've got several more years of prime or close-to-prime Steph, Klay, and (hopefully) Dray, and it will be fun to see how it all unfolds. I don't think this team is done competing for titles.
