you donít see how being an insurance policy for kyrie is a good thing? How many healthy seasons has kyrie had? If we want a serious title run, we need serious insurance
plus whatís the point of trading for a middle of the pack draft pick ? I get having assets but we are beyond that point of asset collection, we have a good amount of draft picks remaining that we donít even know what to do with. Roll with rozier and see what happens
Rather keep Rozier through next year to go all in for a title next year. Injuries happen, as we all know, and having Rozier around to be insurance to play a bigger role due to injury to another player, in a year you are going for it all, is huge. We can deal with either resigning him or sign and trading him after next year's playoffs.
Exactly. I feel like a lot of the Smart/Rozier talk around here is all-nothing, either we sign them long-term or let them go. But we could do lots of other things. We could re-sign Smart and trade him next summer, and then re-sign Rozier, for example.
I get this sentiment, im just not sure keeping Rozier makes all thay much difference in a title run, hes not gonna be a starter, closer, sixth man, and he will likely be what the fifth option at best? If you can get a long term big man to replace Horford for Rozier than do it. Chicago at 7, New York at 9 strikes ne as teams that wont want to wait and could use a shooting point. Somebody like Bamba or Carter will slip there. Im all foraximizing winning, but I also want to see a long term dynasty and replacibg Horford is a big part of that.
Its gonna be very close next year between us and GS assuming health. The point I am making is losing Irving with or without Rozier means the title is out of reach, keeping him is nice insurance but it doesnt get you were u need to go. And if Irving is healthy Rozier doesnt have the same bug role.
Now of course I could be wrong, I need to see how we stack up against GS this year to have a better idea. I just dont know if keeping Rozier for 1 extra year to increase our win chance by some small percent and then losing him is better than picking up a long term piece. Think of how important Horford is to our team, he will be 32 next year. If we can find the next young big I think about it.
Of course so.mych depends on how Ainge evaluates Rozier, draft propects, Smart, our title chances, ect. Im just saying you think about it.
