On a decent team, Bargnani will be a terror for other teams.
I don't disagree. I'm saying that depending on how things wash out this season, that Bargnani could be traded for talent that fits better. If Bargnani is a good fit and they can acquire talent through a different trade, then yeah, Ed comes off the bench. I'm just trying to look down the road a little bit, because there will be some settling out this season, there will almost certainly still be a need for an injection of talent, and there are some big decisions to be made with a bunch of different players. The main thing is to see something of a completed puzzle by the end of this season, with a pretty clear path forward and a well-defined core settled upon.
