Everyone else is trade bait if we can land let's say, a JSmoove at the deadline, or perhaps a Rudy Gay if the Grizz aren't where they thought they would be, or even a Tyreke Evans.
He's talked about it so long and so much that he really has this season to make it happen, and it had better be really good. I really grow tired of having my expectations raised like that, especially when he should be continuing to build a team foundation. And hopefully that is where his head is truly at, but the way he words things is all about selling hype at a bit of a premium, and the words themselves don't stand up much anymore, and threaten to undermine his actions when he finally does make a deal.
