    I don’t have much faith in olshey at all. We have needed another wing for a while now and he probably won’t look to get it. Last couple years Neil just sits on his hands or maybe it’s our lack of assets which is why cj really needs to go but once again it won’t happen because of Neil and his ridiculous idea to keep this back court together. Would of been possible if summer of 2016 signings never happened but at this point cj needs to be traded. Not at the deadline but in general

    I rejected that suggestion for cause, and already explained why. Begone peasant!
