Who knows, maybe Danny has a vision of keeping Smart, Irving AND Rozier during our contending years. Many of us thought Smart would only come back on the QO, and we were wrong.I think Danny will shop Rozier hard this season once we've seen Kyrie play and be healthy.
He probably won't move him in the end, but he'll shop him hard. (similar to Marcus this season) Then we'll let him walk if Kyrie leaves in FA and he signs a big offer sheet or match his offer sheet (or extend our own) if Kyrie leaves.
I donít expect much shopping of Rozier, not without a huge asking price.
Oh I expect Danny's ask to be huge, and for nothing to get done. But he'll be kicking the tires and Rozier and Picks are really the only things that seem movable at this point. Tatum/Brown seem untouchable, Kryie is expiring and they want to contend, same with Al.
I guess Hayward/Smart could also be talked about mid season....
