The deal apparently centred around Colburn with multiple pieces going either way. According to various news stories, both sides are still talking and a deal could still happen.
These are trades involving multimillion dollar assets. I don't want our GM rushing into them, as much as I want things to happen, like everyone else.
There is a lot to this logic.
We always hear GM's use the term "moving parts" and anytime your talking trades under a brand new CBA...its going to take a lot of time/calculating and carefulness.
I cant ballpark the chance of Coburn ending up here...but...the fact the deal is not 'dead' is a very good thing and Its a nice change to see this manager taking some serious time to deliberate/negotiate.
You don't have to act "fast" to be "bold".
