    Casey has been around for 2 seasons now so undoubtedly he will be overvaluing guys like Rudy, Amir and DeMar Ujiri just got here so he has no gauge to base this value on easier to move players out of ignorance and zero attachment. Any good GM will watch tape and talk to everyone before making moves. Hence why Ujiri may have wanted to rip down this roster to the bones of JV Ross and begin on top of that but hes taking a wait and see approach, if this was next years draft I think Ujiri would be making a complete rebuild move or at the very least if he had picks this year he would be, BC left him in the trap of his fail safe for the most part BCs team will be playing next year because of the limited resources left to Ujiri to change anything.

    While a commendable trait and talent to possess in a coach, the reality is both Red and Popovich have/had great say (if not final say) in the players they draft or trade for...so the acquired talent pool available start at second base sotospeak in terms of incorporation into their system. They follow a tempplate. For the vast majority of teams and the well run orgs. it is the constant communication between coach and the GM that also permits similar results if input in personnel choices are discussed internally so all are on the same page.... which MU has said shall be a pillar of his GMship.
    Agreed. Red drafted and/or traded for pretty much every player he coached during his career as a coach. Not really a good analogy. Also, times were very different. Back then, players actually deferred to coaches and management, vs. now when players have a great deal more control over their careers.

    Nowadays, I would argue that a smart GM, if he thinks he has a great coach, needs to provide that coach with players who fit the system being implemented, not build a system to fit the players. It's a lot easier to find players to fit a system role than it is to keep re-designing a system to fit a constantly changing roster.
