Sacremento is not Miami and Divacs is not Riley — so I agree with the commenters. At some point, you just need players, and these are solid players with some reputation to sell tickets. And the Sixes themselves showed that this isn’t fantasy basketball, you still need veterans around. Never mind that this article never discussed the moves behind the moves — which agents and friends were pacified, which connections made, favors, etc.
