They're literally repeating the same errors from previous management verbatim that prolonged this rebuild. Wait until the near deadline to choose a direction so no high draft pick but no playoffs. More than likely will lose a young player who will probably go to another team and blow up. Can't make deals...

 

The issue we have this season is that there are up to eight teams wanting to sell rather than buy. In the Eastern conference, you have the Knicks, Bulls, Nets, Magic, and Hawks. In the Western conference you have the Grizzlies, Suns, Kings, and Mavericks. All those teams outside the Nets will want to try and get the best first round draft pick possible, but all of them are likely to want to try to accumulate draft picks and assets to help their rebuilds. That's a lot of competition and in someways it might be the case that the offers our front office have received just don't line up with our valuations. For example we might want a first round pick, but if play off teams only want to trade second round picks that might be a deal breaker and why the team is currently sitting on the talent it has.

No the issue we have is we have an ownership who might need to simply bow out and sell it to an owner who's aggressive and innovative.

Different POBR/GM, same exact errors verbatim.

I don't think the issue is going to be we want a first but all we get are seconds. I think its more about contracts we have to take back

Could very well be. We are profitable and that seems to be, all that matters.

The problem with our team is that playing our bench nets us wins. If we need to tank, bring back Payton and Vuc this season, lose, and get rid of them next season. NOW is the time to tank. Management staying put is NOT a bad thing.

Hahahaha

Payton is garbage and has no value in the league. We spend too much time on the deficit with him running the show. He’d be a good backup perhaps with limited minutes.
