I understand you dont want to trade Couturier. I dont want to trade him either, but for a guy like Pieterangelo? I pull the trigger.
It's not just Couturier, though. We're losing a lot of roster players, some of whom are also only just approaching their prime, draft picks, etc. Trading for Pietrangelo is something that will blow the team up again. I just don't think there's a reason to do it unless we're doing another full rebuild.


Also, on a side note, I think it's really amusing that everyone claims there will be revenge for offersheets. That has never, ever happened.
