Yep.

Worst GM in the league this season. No contest. Buffalo even signed Hall to a 1-year deal, so at least they have that piece to sell for assets. Remarkably poor season for this organization from top to bottom.

Part of the reason there's been no trades has to be a lack of direction and vision too. Hard to make trades when you don't have a long term plan

It’s hard to blame Treliving for building this team that’s sinking like an anchor and has no cap space but also somehow looks to not have any assets anyone else is interested in acquiring. It could happen to anyone really, just bad luck and things outside of the control of the GM.

Yeah kind of like when you play darts "501" you can be a good shot get the odd 180, but if you can't count down properly your at a disadvantage. Treliving does a lot of good things, but not sure he knows what kind of team he is building. Hoping him and Darryl can work together and close that gap and build a contender. Interesting to see what kind of moves we make in the off season, hopefully we can formulate a plan that gets things moving forward.
