Well, here we go.
I'm sure people have some thoughts, yes?
Interesting part of Aldridge's piece:
"The cap is a non-factor for us," Hammond said. "We have put ourselves in a position now where we can kind of do what we need to do, what's good for our team. We have a lot of flexibility as we move forward. As far as the roster goes, you have all three of those guys are in different positions ... all of the situations are a little bit different. But we love all three of them and we'd love to have all of them back. And with Brandon, we play on bringing him back."
But Skiles, according to sources, has wondered about the team's overall plan going forward, and whether it would be willing to either completely rebuild the roster through high Draft picks like Jennings, or make a trade for a dynamic, superstar-caliber player that the existing core could complement.
I definitely buy that. Skiles is a logical guy, he's no fool. He sees the writing on the wall and likely has for some time. Reports were that he didn't even want to return this season. I think he realized that if Bogut wasn't going to be the star, this franchise was screwed.
