Slow down.
Fields isn’t a bad player, but was just overpaid. I would have signed that contract too if I were in his position. BC admittedly said he signed him as a "preemptive strike" to secure Nash. Fields' is pretty much unmovable right now in a 1 for 1 trade. With that said, he was playing injured and if he can come close to his rookie production he can easily be moved. He does become valuable in his third year as an expiring as well. Additionally, I don't think he's the solution at the 3spot for us. There's still a black hole there. Pietrus was a good pick up, but he's pretty much a band-aid solution. RE mayo: I wanted to draft Drummond and pick up Mayo in the offseason (still would have), but BC decided to go with T Ross so it didn't make sense.
