Re: Charlie Bell?
Milwaukee matches, I love it. Who cares what it makes them "look like", better to admit their previous mistake in not offering enough money than let Bell walk for nothing when they have the option to retain him so cheap. As I was saying before, once the season starts and the focus is on whats going on on the court, I don't think Charlie will really care about how the summer went. Worst case, in the future they can move such an affordable contract easily and get at least a 2nd rounder or two in return.
Milwaukee had an offseason that looked like it might turn to disaster, but the end result is about as good as possible. They added the top talent (on their board) available with their pick, and re-signed both key free agent guards
