Al Jefferson is also signed through 2013.
SO, the plan (I guess) would be to make a run at it all the 2012 & 2013 seasons? Knowing you're going to be lousy the next 2 years, and hoping it starts to come together at the start of 2011.
I'm following you. For sure.
SO, Flynn-Ellington-Love-Jefferson will get all this playing time together.... They'll sprinkle in some talent the next 2 drafts.... And then get to bring over Rubio in 2011, or just trad ehim somewhere for other pieces.
HEY, Kahn was Walsh's understudy.... Walsh is employing that very same plan here in NY. Kahn also has more assets: He has a BIG MAN STUD in Jefferson, and a bunch of top draft picks, along with Rubio. Walsh is pretty much betting the farm he gets to sign Lebron, or two free agent studs.
SO, in a sense, Kahn's logic is more sound. It's safer. Why not?
The only problem is.... The Mayans said the world will end by the time the 2012 seaons begins. Too bad for MInny.
