We all know the maloofs are cheap bastards, and we know that Batum and his agent aren't exactly itching to stay in PDX, what does that all mean for the odds of Batum going to Sacramento? What type of dough would need to be doled out to lure him over here, 10-11 million per year?
DMC's one hungry man with the ball, will he make room for T-Rob at the table? Or will T-rob have to fight for his own? I wonder if this will lead to DMC staying further away from the paint area?
Additionally, how far would a lineup of 1. IT, 2. Reke, 3. Batum, 4. T-Rob, 5. DMC take the team? Borderline playoffs/playoffs, or is that just a sub .500 club?
