What may be the worst part of the loss of oden and possibly roy, is our loss of tradable assets. Before Oden went down it was believed that we had a valuable trade asset in Joels expiring contract, and that by paring that with Millers expiring contract we could get a legit star to carry us forward. Now those two players become incredibly important to the survival of our team. Miller is now our best player and Joel becomes a much needed backup at center. We no longer have any contracts to trade. almost everyone else is on a rookie contract besides Mathews who we cant trade. What chips do we have left to bargain with? I don't know a lot about salary rules or trade exceptions, but it would seem that we are stuck with what we have at this point. Does anyone know if we could extend one of our young guys to make salaries match up for a bigger trade?
