That makes some sense. Although you can basically always get a veteran SF, so you'd think we'd just take the best Tay deal if we wanted to trade him. Plus trading him doesn't fix our biggest issue, Rip & Ben. This does fit Joe's rebuilding while staying competitive plan. Also known around NBA circles as "The Blueprint to Mediocrity". I'd be more willing to blame this on the ownership situation if I didn't think Joe actually thought this was possible. Well I hope T-Mac resurrects his career here, even though I see absolutely no long term benefits from this move for the team.
