1 June Trade Drawer: Trade Deadline Nostalgia


A question to all you BE out there: 

Now that we're back to having conversations about trades, what do you think about the lack of trades made at the deadline last February?  I'm specifically thinking about RLEC (if you're in to the whole brevity thing). KP said something like "Let's go to war together" to the team after the deadline passed, indicating that he liked the direction the team was heading and didn't want to ruffle anyone's feathers.  Fair enough, but where does that put us now?

I don't remember exact deals that were on the table, but I do remember Kirk Hinrich and Richard Jefferson (and a ton of other people I'm forgetting) were talked about quite a bit.  All that talk went away during the final stretch of the season, but now that we're back in Acquisitions Mode these names are creeping back in to discussions on BE.  The difference being that now we don't have that ace in the sleeve (RLEC) to play that would get a deal done.

Looking back, should we have made a move?  Did we do the right thing?  It might be to early to say either way, but when isn't?  I think we had a better bargaining position last February and think we could have gotten more for less at that point than we can get now.

What am I basing this on, you ask?  Pure speculation.
