also in order to go into true rebuild, i think it would be in best interests of team to amnesty him or get rid of him by seasons end...
it pains me to say because he works his ass off, loves the city, and is probably straight up the nicest guy on the team (possibly the league), but hes reached his ceiling and wont be able to be that top tier pg we desperately need.
Plus right now hes playing really well and his value is arguably as high as its ever been.....considering how big his contract is, we might be able to get something worthwhile in return right now, especially if we trade him to one of those contending rich teams who don't care about the cap hit and willing to go over the cap year after year (lakers? mavs? etc....)
