For the same price I'd so much rather have grabbed Dalembert than Kwame Brown. He's a better player in almost every single way, and Houston has a relatively cheap buyout for next year if they find something better or it doesn't work out. Why can't our front office be creative like this?
Man...just another case of our GM(s) being outfoxed by Daryl Morey yet again....
