I would argue that about every single one of management's decisions since last summer have been part of a conscious effort to tank this season and next to get cap space and high draft picks. It has nothing to do with being weird or cheap, it has to do with having a different vision for the team than you do.Originally posted by <b>Ed O</b>!
At one point Portland was 10-7.
Now we're 16-21.
Rasheed Wallace would make us more competitive, but there's a LOT of problems with this team and it starts at the top (weird roster management, cheap FA decisions, a draft pick that is of no help at this point) and goes down through the coaching staff (poor schemes, bad substitution patterns, poor motivation ability) and obviously is reflected most obviously in the players.
Cutting Carroll and Dickens (leaving the roster at 10 men) and not picking up a second 10 day contract on Vranes (in spite of saying they really liked him and that he's a good prospect) isn't weird if they're trying to build for the future?Originally posted by <b>ArtestFan</b>!
