Richards is a great player, top 10 center in the league, but that's too much drain on the organization when you look at the bigger picture.
Another great claim from another self-appointed righteous pseudo-pragmatist.
The assets that would be traded are Gomez-Kristo-Weber-1st, nothing else. Gomez would've played almost two full season + playoffs with us, that's what you paid McDonaugh and Valentenko for. Not for Richards.
If you want to live in a fantasy world where keen asset management trumps the reality of NEEDS, then you're welcome to do just that, but you also have to realize how ridiculous it makes you look.
