Maybe. The point remains that they were able to be a very solid defensive team without him, which suggests to me that, arguably, it was reasonable to decline paying him $14.5 million a year. Especially when nobody knew Odom would shit the bed so hard.
I think Mitch did
As for not re-signing Chandler, if it means getting Deron and another mega star (maybe Dwight) then it is justified. I think getting Odom hurt their salary situation a little bit if they want to get two super stars. It's still possible but it's difficult. Mitch strikes again.
