Oh gee if we don't get Lebron James at least we can get Anthony Randolph? Lmao that would appease us all.
Is it appealing in the name recognition market? No. But it's a smart basketball move since you're not mortgaging the future of the entire franchise with costly contracts and bad decisions. Plus if Randolph works well with Gallo and STAT, fans would be calling for him to get some sort of extension...if he doesn't...let him walk. Easy.
