I think Danny said he had a plan B, C, D, and E. What about F? Ronnie Brewer turned down a similar contract offer from the Celtics to sign with the Bulls today according to Yahoo! Matt Barnes via his twitter is saying a couple new teams have entered the equation and he is postponing his "Decision." Childress and Redick have already been signed and as you all know TA is taking his defense to Memphis. The only viable wing still in play is Josh Howard, who could only be acquired via a sign and trade with Rasheed Wallace's contract and additional incentives to the Wizards. How confident can one be in Danny Ainge right now?
Since adding House and Posey three years ago, we've seen solid players leave, but none really come in.
Patrick O'Bryant, Mikki Moore, and J.R. Giddens were disasters. Stephon Marbury was adequate I guess, but nothing to write home about. Rasheed stunk up the joint in the regular season, played better in the postseason, but his shot left him in the Finals (check the stats). Marquis Daniels got injured as expected and didn't care much as was his rep. Nate Robinson failed to win the back-up point guard position and became only a situational sub. I was hoping Danny could bring in Michael Beasley or Al Jefferson who were being shopped on clearance or acquire Marvin Williams or Josh Childress via a sign and trade, as well as trade a future pick for Rudy Fernandez. Right now things aren't looking so bright. With the Heat super team and an improved Bulls squad, coupled with the Big 3 a year older and Perk on the shelf (We lost the 3 playoff games Perk missed/left early due to injury/ejection) standing pat won't get us back to the Finals. It's been 3 years Danny. Time to "get on the ball" to quote Paul Pierce for truth.
