Okay, the Argentinean back-up center isn’t really a part of the frito-lay family. And in terms of direct value? This is about 30 cents on the dollar for RJ. I mean, Bruce Bowen, Kurt Thomas and Fabricio?
Outside of crippling the Spurs frontcourt depth? They win the deal. Great value for a cheap price. They can get a Chuck Hayes 4 in the draft and refill other picks that way.
But as for the Bucks? This is likely step one. They can make other moves. (Redd/Ridnour for T-Mac?) But if this move allows the Bucks to keep Ramon and Villy? Then it’s a win. It doesn’t matter if the Bucks go 21-61. They can’t keep trying to be a seven seed.
That doesn’t help anybody. You need a plan. You can’t exist as a seven seed.
