Very well put except "whom" is spelled with one "o." People underestimate the human needs of a player. Boogie was wedded to Sacto and that was a given. That ship has sailed. Bogdan has a lot of reasons to stay in Europe. MANY reasons. I wonder how the situation would look to him if we had Boogie, didn't have Buddy or the other sg that came over with him, let McBen leave at the end of the season, and bought out Afflalo's contract. I am developing a liking for McBen but it is not an overwhelmingly passionate bromance. He can leave if we get Bogdan. That leaves us with far fewer sgs with Buddy, Bogdan, Temple (a must to keep), and Richardson. We can play Reke at pg or sg until a better idea comes along, perhaps a pg in the draft. I understand the Boogie trade. Maybe I will come to like it but it leaves us with no magnet whatsoever to attract people to the Kings. How would Bogdan like it if he was considered a semi-major piece of importance to us if we rid ourselves of 3 sgs? Given that in the flow of a game small ball is not the worst matchup in the world, these sgs can get their minutes. There is good protection in case of injuries. We need that. Any team needs that. There is the grand wonder of what we will be able to seduce with the large amount of cap money. We will have Boogie's money, probably Afflalo's, and probably Gays'. That's a tankful of green stuff. How would that look to Bogdan, Čarolija, or at least your best estimate? My guess is that the the Kings look better as a destination if it appears that he will get significant minutes. All players like to play. We can overpay. The Kings only attraction at this point is that they can overpay.
