We can all see this coming from a mile away and we're powerless to stop it. Signing Stuckey to $7mil per is going to further hurt our chances of balancing this roster and rebuilding this team. Yes, trading Rip would be ideal but it will require Joe taking back yet another bad contract. Rip was a mistake (duh). In order to rebuild, Joe must maximize every opportunity to un-do his past mistakes. Waiting another 9 months to a year might yield the best situation for the future when it comes to Rip freaking Hamilton.
