for a very short time and were either traded away or didn't want to come back. Belinelli for George. Loved that deal when it happened. loved it. then a little while later he ships out Beli for straight up garbage.
and plus most of those moves didn't really mean much for actual team success. Did any of those really translate into team success?
He won every single one of those trades and yes I would say T.J Ford contributed to some success, same with Delfino and Humphries for Hoffa was an absolute steal....hoffa was out of the league within a year. Belinelli for Deavan George was the same thing, George never played again. I would also say that getting Rasho here was a solid move and contributed to our success in our two playoff years.
