McRoberts was the better overall fit, which makes Williams' overpay all the worse because you probably could've kept McRoberts for a million less...unless he just wanted to leave.
No, we couldnt have kept Mcroberts for $1 million less because he didnt want a 2 year deal. Mcroberts signed for about $9 million more than Williams if you're keeping score
This deal was clearly structured to leave the team flexible, so (ideally) 2 years from now we will have Vonleh and Zeller taking all the minutes at PF. If neither of those guys develop, then clearly Mcroberts would have been the better deal. If they improve like expected though, its gonna be nice not having an aging Mcroberts getting in the way of their development still on the hook for 2 years/ $12 mil
It was a slight overpay, but the other PFs on the market cant shoot 3s. Which is important for spacing when you've got Big Al in the post and MKG on the wing
