Weltman mentioned Mozgov was a quality guy, I know GMs will often say that when they get someone that may not be playing a lot, but if that's true I see that as a nice positive, small, but still a good thing none the less. I've mentioned many times about how we need to get the culture and locker room in the right place and bringing in quality people is an important thing.
I remember watching other teams benches during the year after big plays and them going nuts and seemed to genuinely enjoy each other but then see ours after a similar play and you could just tell there was nothing there.
I'm liking all these small things the FO is doing to slowly get us back on track. If you look at them all individually you might say they are nothing moves but I think it's not giving them enough credit. Not picking up Mario's option was a mistake, we all know that but since then I've liked seeing what they are doing. The AG front loaded contract was great, his last season will be the same amount as what Biz is earning. Deal looks even better after seeing what Lavine got.
I feel good about where we are going. I'm a realistic and patient person and I know we won't be a contender overnight and that's ok with me. There was no quick way out of this. We couldn't address ALL our holes (and there were A LOT) in one draft or offseason. Trae Young or IT wouldn't have magically made us relevant overnight. Grant doesn't either but at least he is in the mould of a PG we want running this team (like 4tw mentioned) and that's a good thing. I honestly felt like fixing our starting C was more important than our PG, and I feel like we could of only realistically focused on one of them and I'm delighted we've walked away with Bamba.
