Even with the addition of Jefferson, you also have to factor in the loss of Mullens.  I don't see us winning 30 games next year, and I am fine with that.  I think it will improve Kemba and MKG, and have Zeller focus on what he's best at with the P&R

 

We will have a top 6 pick next year, and who knows what Cho will do come the trade deadline or draft day.  There is a lot of time before the 2014 draft.

 

So step away from the ledge, anybody who is clamoring about being out of the big names

I'm thinking (hoping) this makes Kemba and MKG much better next year.

It's going to. Look for Kemba to have his best season and up his APG to 8. MKG, Biz, and Al is like peanut butter and jelly. Their going to gel. We now have two good bigs who can play in the post in Al and Cody.

He didn't even wait on D12 to sign. Not sure why he did this.

I'm guessing that behind the scenes people probably know which way Howard is leaning, but I'm not sure.

 

Jefferson gets to play here and make good money for a couple years and if he wants to leave after that there probably won't be other big men in the market (Howard, etc) so he can be the most wanted and get more money on his last big contract.

Ability to opt out after year 2.

Guess the offer yesterday was a 4-5 year deal with opting out in his last year. This deal gives him 14 mil for the first two year and he can see if he wants out still being 30.
