Surprised this mega-deal isnt being talked about more... this is the moment for this team. They have said "we are all in, we are tossing our future assets in the trash and gathering what we can to win now" after more than a decade of floundering, then tanking, then growing. The time is now, next year and the year after.
They must resign Butler and Harris this offseason.
Really, they almost "must" make it to the Eastern Conference Championship this year. They need to have that experience to take the next step.
The team is saying "we are next up after GS collapses". That is a bold, bold statement, but we now have a starting lineup that could be going to the NBA All Star game (minus Reddick) and have to fit these 4 pieces together. We have a PG, C, PF and swing player, the pieces, now can Brent Brown make a team out of that with backup pieces.
Brown now has a clock running. He has 2 seasons to win, and win big or he will go down as a coach with one of the worst winning percentage in NBA History. The clock is ticking, ticking loud and ticking very fast.
