Im hoping there is a market for these vets. Buddy/Barnes helped to win the nuggets game
Totally disagree with this sentiment and have all along.
Last year was an injury plagued, bad chemistry COVID fluke and a throwaway.
This is how we should have looked last year - healthy. It’s where everything left off two years ago. In an upward trajectory with a growing young core.
Winning is ultimately the priority. Having an attitude of being in a perennial rebuild is automatically self defeating. We need to start winning and building towards being a contender and you cannot do that by losing. Right now we are looking like there is a team wide chemistry and effort building to work together and win. We cannot just arbitrarily break that with a premature move. And we absolutely do not want to do ANYTHING that is not a now and later clear improvement.
Honestly things worked out perfectly IMO. Buddy/Bogdan were always a bit too old to expect huge improvements from. Fox is the man, but probably best as a 2nd guy. Bagley has major potential but has failed to stay healthy. Last years failure led us to Haliburton and Monte.
Idk that Barnes/Buddy are in the long term plans, but i'm certainly not rushing to dump either for some scraps and late 1st round picks. If we can get other nice young players then i'm in. But I want a young dude with potential and an expiring contract.
Obviously the money doesn't work but id take someone like DDV/Expiring for Hield. Not interested in some trash like Taurean Prince + late 1st for Barnes. If we are taking on other long term money then the value better be amazing.
