Back in the game after a short stint to get the ankle re-taped.

It's been one month and Noah is still un-signed.

Does anyone still think we should have held on to him for a trade?

Stretching him helps our cap figure a lot this summer.

If we don't use our cap space then stretching him was a mistake.

Yes, I do. I would have sent him home with pay but away from the team*, and I would have waived Baker and Kornet to make room for Trier.

No chemistry issues, no long-term cap hit.

Then I would have either traded him with picks or stretched him next summer if I needed the cap space. And if I didn't need the cap space, I would have just bought him out next summer.

* Unless he agreed to a generous buyout, like Luol Deng did.

Which apparently he did not. 

And there has clearly been a stampede to add him to a veteran contending roster, has there not? 

Waived Kornet? 

You over estimate cap space. 

One man's opinion, anyway. 

And Kornet might yet evolve into a decent rotation player, particularly, if as everyone seems to project, Kanter is out the door come next June. 

CRYING

OVER

SPILLED

MILK

What's done is done.  Get over it. 

Wake me up when Noah gets a contract offer.

You don't get it Chip - It's not about anyone wanting Noah, nobody does. You wouldn't trade him to a team that thought he could play, but rather to a team with cap space next summer along with a pick if you've got someone lined up to sign. Or, not, but you hold off on stretching him unless you know you need the cap space.

And if I overestimate cap space, what about management that stretched him for cap space before they knew if they could us it?

I would not want to offload picks to offload Noah.  Even if it meant a Superstar.  Now we can get the Superstar without picks.
