It's pretty simple. This team needs people who can successfully pass the basketball, and they just signed a 2-year insurance policy against Zeller and Vonleh's inexperience who can't pass well and has a considerable recent injury history.
Whenever you recognize those as facts, taking the baby-blue blinders off isn't nearly as difficult. Williams was a decent signing at $4m/yr. At $7m/yr, absolutely not.
Great analysis. You really did present a strong case there. Please send your resume in to replace Cho.
I repeat: ...it's still too much. Where is he so great at that the stretch 4 had to be him?
If the Hornets wanted Lance Stephenson and he wanted $15M and refused to budge, you know what the Hornets would do? They would cease negotiating with him.
If Marvin Williams required $7M a year, they should've moved on to the next "PF" on their list. Like someone said in the Williams thread, if they were going to pay him $7M, they might as well have just given that to McRoberts if they "really wanted him back" like they claimed.
Williams should've gotten $5.5 - 6M at the most.
No one wanted to even give McRoberts that much, and Williams is a better scorer, but he doesn't bring as much heart, hustle and passing as McRoberts did.
If you can't see the hypocrisy in this deal, check your vision.
It reeks of desperation.
Come on man....McBob wanted more years. They paid more for MW so they could only have him for two years so the young PFs can continue to develop. How do you not see the difference here if you're going to be so critical of the front office?
