Maybe he will go and try to trade for another franchise like player. Somehow I doubt he will be able to pull it off. He is running out of assets to trade without completely destroying the team for another 7 years.
Actually I think he signed Komi to be the back end star first. I believe he expected them to be the backbone of Team USA with Wilson as coach.
