Chris Wilcox for Malik Rose = FAIL


What are we doing? Just yesterday I was boasting on Sam Presti for pulling off another amazing deal by getting rid of two expiring contracts for an impact center. Then, last night the Thunder rescinded the trade, citing a failed physical of Tyson Chandler. Today, the trade deadline passed, and we were involved in only one deal. Sam Presti sent Chris Wilcox to the New York Knicks for Malik Rose and cash considerations. So I ask again, what the hell are we doing? Can somebody please do a psychiatric evaluation on Sam Presti, becuase he's lost his damn mind!  This trade makes me want to send the straitjackets after him!

Are we in the business of doing other teams favors now? I mean seriously, Malik Rose? Rose has played an in eye popping 18 games and scored a downright astounding total of 1.7 points, and 1.7 rebounds per game. Awesome, we trade a dead weight expiring contract for a higher paid, even deader (if that's even a word) weight expiring contract. RIDICULOUS. Can someone please tell me how much these "Cash Considerations" are?

The only thing I can think of is that the organization is facing an economic downturn and needed some cash. I mean seriously, packing 18,000 plus a game must be breaking the bank when the Thunder try to cut checks to pay our players each week. In case you couldn't tell, that was sarcasm.

I just don't understand this move, and I really don't understand why this was the ONLY move that was made before the deadline. Can we go back to yesterday and rescind the rescind? If so, lets do that because even if the guy has turf toe, I'd rather take my chances on losing money on Chandlers contract than whatever the hell we're supposed to get out of this deal.

Is anyone else as baffled as I am?
