I'd much rather have Holiday, the 2nd round pick, and that salary slot open than Lopez. Yes we signed Noah, but those are two different moves. I just find it funny that when we signed Lopez people were up in arms. Now he's gone and he's such a massive asset we don't have anymore. He was so good this year he lead the Bulls to a .500 season.
People are upset at the domino effect.
You trade Rolo for a score first PG that doesn't fit and is playing for a contract.
To address this imagery hole now at center because you traded Lopez you sign Joakim to a 4 year, fuqed up deal for even more money that you were paying Lopez.
And KP with Lopez last year was awesome defensive frontcourt duo, they complimented each other very well, plus RoLo is not a injury prone player and you could easily trade him a lot later if Phil would need to do that, but Phil somehow ''realised' that RoLo will not be good for him and he go gets/gives one of the worst contracts in the NBA history, + that contract is almost impossible to trade and he is injury prone? Hallelujah, it's a JACKPOT Phil, good job... good effort. He earned those 12 M per year.
