I'd say Redick as well, though Ryan has more time to improve his game. As of today, I don't know who's more valuable. A young big who can spread the floor and rebound, or a pure shooter who can play alittle bit of D. Redick can continue to contribute as a Ray Allen-esque type guy off the bench I suppose.
I think letting Ryan go was the right move, as he'd be just a guy putting up numbers on an awful team here, and alot of money tied up to the PF position with Baby. He may have even forced us to play Baby at...gulp...the 5 and not let Vucevic grow.
Resigning Redick, as you all know since I've stated it before, would be a bad idea, hence why I push to move him now regardless of the haul. Even a draft pick would be great, since you risk losing him for nothing. You don't want to pay the future pick, teams are always looking for more as well, so it's an asset you can keep for awhile (depending on year).
I also fear is we do resign Redick, regardless of dollar amount, we have two vets who will hinder time for any potential swingman we pick up in the draft, free agency, etc. We need youth at that position in the worse, WORSE way. With Afflalo sliding to the 3 often it hinders any project playing time as well.
I LOVE Redick. I do. I pop everytime he does something. I'd love to have him here. But it's just not in the cards with other changes being made, which I don't think will be. It's a shame we don't have a ton of space next year were we can frontload Redick ala Collison in OKC to get him his $$. Still the playing time point I made also leaves me not wanting to do that.
We shall see.
This team needs to find a PF to replace Tony Battie. Sign Chris Webber.
