2010: Forget this battle, let's win the war.

So Darius Miles is likely to go back on our books. So the blazers lose flexibility about their options for this summer. So what? We have our RLEC this year, next year we get an untradeable DMEC, worth nine mill. If we look at only the contracted players in the 10 summer, we have GO, Batum, Rudy, Bayless, and Martell. That's five players that cost less than 20 mil together. We would still have enough money to extend Roy and Aldridge and have money left over to sign one of the superstars possibly coming out in '10. The real beauty of the salary structure is that Pritchard will have the freedom (if he wants to) to pull a Danny Ainge and radically restructure the core of the franchise if he feels that the current team doesn't have what it takes to get to the promised land. I say we hold our assets, whether Miles comes off the books or not, and cash in our chips for the high stakes poker game, rather than sell the farm this summer.
