Call me crazy, but I think I have found out why Isiah Thomas hired Brewer, Bateer and Sundov to all one year contracts.
He is going to trade for Webber!
Reports out of Sacramento states that management just want a team to take Webber's $18mil contract.
An article in Hoopsworld mentioned Penny as a trade pawn, and it also states that when IT was in Indy, he tried desperately to sign Webber as a FA.
When we look at the contracts, it all adds up
Webber = $18mil
Penny = $15.5mil
Brewer = $.75mil
Sundov = $.75mil
Bateer = $.7mil
Total = $17.7mil
All of the knicks pawns have contracts that expire in 2006 and that is very appealing to the Kings. I think this is what Isiah is going to do.
Webber had 19pts, 9rebs last season after the surgery on his knees. His enormous contract is a huge blow for NY, but as Dolan told the NYPost a few days ago, he would rather have IT spend his money than his ex-wife!
