Very true. Still go back to six-weeks ago when I floated the idea to simply discuss the possibility of renouncing Middleton, using the cash to sign Bojan. Nehm, Dean, etc. went on this twitter rant for the day, which was disappointing. And part of it was tossing into that discussion the "Bill Michael's listeners" who were ranting back that the Bucks needed to dump Middleton and sign Durant and Kemba simultaneously.
Uh no. There was a reasonable discussion to be had on that issue. You may disagree and want Khris back on a four or five-year max as your #1 priority, but there were reasonable options out there worthy of debate.
And as it turns out, we could have likely gotten Brogdon and Bojan on 4/$80 deals and diversified our contract risk greatly, as a reasonable alternative. I still would have gone that route, unless Giannis told LED he had to have Khris, no exceptions.
