I've said it before and I'll say it again. This guy is a drug. Even when one doesn't want to use anymore, we just can't help but make an excuse for one more hit... this time not because we want to get high and not because we need it. Its just gonna make us feel better...just for a little while. This will be the last time!!
There must be SOME WAY to extract something out of him? Right?
I think it should be accepted that Bargnani is dead weight. This team wasted alot of time and resources on him. If they can get something, anything, for him great. But I don't think expecting any returns is realistic, and trying to drive up his value is just wasting additional resources and opportunities. Try to move him until the amnesty window opens, and if nothing is available, use it. Its the lowest risk option at this point... at the very least it opens up a few extra $s pre-tax which could be used to make a bigger move without going into the tax.
