bottom line is, while he serves a purpose his purpose needs an upgrade. send him to a team that desperately needs a center but either doesnt need a #1 or doesnt have the assets to get one.. get some trade pieces back, then parlay those pieces along with some we already have to another team for that #1 we need.
not easy, but that should be the agenda imo.
then offload one of grier niedermayer or rivet to replace some lost assets in the other trade and use some of our reserves (kaleta, ellis, etc.)
this shouldnt be a stand pat deadline, we are in a position to offload some deadweight AND upgrade our team.. we have the pieces to do it, no excuses, show some effort and try to get it done
This deadline is not for rebuilding but it should be to aquire 1 (ONE) player that will help this team for at least a few years. ONE player. Offload 1, 2 or 3 of the players not on the short list, get ONE player for the future and let the kids play...see what they can do.....and Weber, Ennis and Gerbe get better with every game...let em play!
