I do really worry about so much talk now of possible moves, and how everyone is traceable, and yet so far only Gary Forbes has gone the other way (in a great deal of course, but leaving plenty of trade assets left over).
I think his patience may have been a good thing.... dealing Forbes in a deal where any value is actually attributed to him was a very commendable effort. Fans love to sell low but I think Colangelo and Stefanski had the patience to not do so.
