But we could also start to become a team where potential is realized rather quickly and they go from there. I'm not sure anybody on this team makes that a greater likelihood. There are some that could be part of a sum that is greater than the whole of the parts. I don't think Jose is the guy you look to in that process past next season, so if he has value now, go for it, especially if you can get a decent pick.
I don't buy it (the ton if interest). Think about it, are there that many teams that would be drooling after Jose? There are a lot of great young PGs in the league right now, about half of them on rookie contracts too.

I think there's a lot of interest from a few teams who have little to offer us. Maybe we'll hear some concrete offers once we get close to the deadline, until that, I will take these rumours with a bag of salt.
