The Bargnani pick was not a bad pick considering what was there. As for his FA signings, other than Kapono/Fileds I don't see much of a problem with anyone else. Say what you want about Turkoglu, we weren't the only team wanting to give him that type of money and at the time Turkoglu was the best or one of the top 3 FA that summer. Blame Tukoglu for his play.

Draft- he's done pretty well imo
Trades- he's done well imo
Signings- Mixed bag at best, but as a GM in this city good luck attracting Tier one or tier 2 players or anyone with several options

I'd be curious to see how much better another GM would be trying to attract good FA's here. Grunwald had problems getting stars to come here and we had Air Canada at the time and we all know what a disaster Babcock was.
