Same thing with the Jalen deal. As a GM why would you make a deal in December when the deadline isn't until Feb? That's just bad business.

CV... Mike James.... Jose.... hindsight my friend.

I'm sure that I can compile a list of BC's failures that would make your skin crawl.
Mike James expiring contract rid the Raps of Rafer's much longer deal.

IIRC the Knicks deal was on the table, but they wanted the pick and Babcock didn't want to include it. As soon as he was gone Embry went ahead and threw it in.
