I’m hopeful that Hughes will turn out to be a steal. Lots to like about him.I listened to the Boeheim pod cast on Hughes and he said he really is a good defender. He said the Cuse plays at least half their practices in man to man and Hughes was really good at it.
There's always the possibility that Rudy won't commit. You have to account for that, whether you think it's likely or not.I don’t think we are making Rudy contingency plans... it’s not really how we work. Plus if you are worried he wants more money you don’t give 30M to his backup that you could just use for him. I think the most reasonable explanation is just that we made a bad pick... trying to rationalize it or make it smart somehow in a weird endgame is the same **** people did when we drafted Tony.
Maybe they can play together?
Maybe they think Rudy won’t last?
Maybe they want a super cheap backup?
maybe they are just dumb
CP3 didn't get a supermax. He got a 10-year vet max, I think. That was when he left the Clippers and went to Houston.
Wait a week... I’m like 85% certain he signs...There's always the possibility that Rudy won't commit. You have to account for that, whether you think it's likely or not.
Jazz didn't get a firm commitment from DWill, so they traded him (though they may also wanted to trade him at the time).
Jazz didn't get a firm commitment from Hayward, and they got burned.
