brett is running an 8-man rotation on most nights because the team is so thin, but somehow young improving role players are called "replacable" and then you look at how to replace them and you realise that we're paying the ghost of wilson chandler almost 13 mil. a year.
He's "replaceable" on the buyout market, or in next year's draft or free agency. Given that none of those things have happened yet, I'm not sure why you would expect him to replaced just yet given that basically every other player on the roster is currently injured and they made a depth for star move with the Butler trade. They obviously don't think he's replaceable today, but luckily he's under contract today.
I guess I just don't get what the point is of constantly complaining about a very small move that already happened. Too many people have no actual thoughts on how to improve the team going forward and instead just want to retrospectively discuss every decision or result that didn't work out perfectly. Part of the whole optionality and "process" stuff is understanding that not every move is going to work out perfectly and learning how to move on.
