Essentially, they know they have a Center going forward and start addressing other areas via FA/trade leading into him actually playing here. BC made a good point last night when asked why make this kind of pick now (refering to his short contract), he said he wasn't gonna worry about instant gratification and that this is part of a plan and he needs to look at the big picture. Which is something we often lose sight of, BC already knows his next 2-3 moves and knows how he wants to shape this team in the next two + years and this pick is only one move of quite a few to come.
I agree, but I am not putting my hopes too high when it comes to FA. How many quality FA we were able to land here in the last 5-7 years...?
