Default Re: Deal Done - Dwightmare Finally Ends

I think it comes down to Hennigan's idea of what rebuilding means. For him, it means staying light on contracts and becoming as bad as possible the next couple of years in order to rack up the highest lottery picks possible in order to bounce back as quickly as possible. That has to be why he passed on Iggy and Bynum as well as the Nets trio. Taking such players means better teams, which means lower picks, hence he felt the delay.

I.E. Instead of opting for decent players, decent trade picks and mediocre home picks, he chose mediocre players, lousy trade picks and potentially elite home picks. It's basically like starting a franchise from scratch. A calculated gamble.
