Do you think that Jerry Krause really wanted to get rid of Brad Miller and take Jalen's max contract?

No, but he knew he had damaged goods in Artest and felt that was the best he could get.

The difference was, that team also had 365,657,298 other problems, so they just kept right on losing before and after the "discounted" trades.

Hopefully SJax, Harrington, and Saras all improve their absolutely rotten attitudes (on a permanent basis, not just for the honeymoon period) with Nellie. Otherwise, Donnie planted a ticking bomb inside that franchise.
