I didn't like the return from the blundered Bucks trade, but at least we would of got DDV, walking away with nothing is going to suck. But hey remember we tried to nab Porter and Lavine, both of their teams matched.
Didn’t those teams have incumbent GMs? I’m not getting that vibe from Monte. I’m really not sure what he thinks he can do without Bogi though. Is he going to rehab Buddy? What does he think of Barnes? Those two contracts are worse than what Bogi will get (granted, I think Barnes has a fine deal going into year 2). I’m just struggling to see what Monte thinks he can do while squandering an asset and good player like Bogi.
Well, cap space and relief cannot be underestimated. But that would be for trade purposes as nobody normally wants to come here. And how much of an asset will we be able to get? Craps shoot.
I don't know what the right call is. I will say the Hawks seem pretty certain we won't match. If they did a 4 for 80 I doubt we would match. So they are trying to have their cake and eat it too.
Interesting things though over at the Kings web site, I predicted 17.5 a year, was pretty close about what Atlanta would offer. This was before the announced 72 million.
