Let's say the Pacers match Portland's max offer to Hibbert and as a result Portland ends up matching our offer for Batum...what do we consider the best 'Plan B' for our Wolves at that point?
Doogie's article yesterday on 1500espn.com lists OJ Mayo, Lou Williams, and a potential trade for Iggy as the Wolves' 'Plan B' options, then this morning it was leaked that the Wolves were "one of four teams on a Monday conference call with free-agent shooting guard Ray Allen" (kind of a weird way to go about pursuing a FA, but hey, I'm not runnin the ship here). That list includes a somewhat diverse array of players in terms of style/age/contract-situations.
Basically, I'd like to get people's thoughts on what our plan of action should be if our run at Batum falls through. I think that Batum is the right type of player we should be going after, but I also agree with some of the recent rhetoric on CH saying that we would be paying him too much... So, lets say you are KAAAHHHNNN and come July 11th Portland matches your offer for Batum - what's your next move?
