Not really. O'Bryant's gonna back-up Biedrins sooner than later and we're resigning Matt Barnes. As TMC pointed out, its kind of already like that.
Plus, I expect Mully to take a player or two in the free agent market this year. Barnes will (hopefully) be resigned, but we've also got Azu, Zarko, Josh Powell, and Pietrus coming off the books... AND Cabbage is opting out. Right now, we've got SIX players that might not return. Mully will pick up SOMEBODY out there.
Nothing is for sure by a long shot. Barnes may resign somewhere else for fairly big money and if Mullin was to match, in one year he would have to resign Biedrins for big money (if he could) and the year after he would have to do the same with Bosh (if he could). That is where the shiit would hit the roof. Also, guys like Azu, Zarko etc, are not sure things so they may not be good enough getting increased minutes. Getting productive freeagents is always possible but you may never get ones good enough either. Barnes is a sure thing on the team right now and must be kept
