Now if we want to upgrade our offense, we will have to trade a better player and have less depth. You are undermining your own arguement.
We don't know if another deal was in place or not. Fisher's injury was known at the time he was acquired last year, that was no secret. If Lombardi plays the entire season and puts up 30-50 points, then and only then can you say it was a bad deal. My bet is he gets no more then 40 games in. We couldn't take the chance, pure and simple. Franson is going to be sitting in the press box more often then on the bench. Do you really think he had value in the market?
