Earlier this year
Wright Provides Update on Coaching Future and Sobey’s Status
When I read this I was both happy and anxious.
Happy that it seems from the article that Wright is staying on and is eager to build a team that plays exciting basketball that can fill the new home.
However Sobey's situation is still up in the air and it seems Wright is quite blasé about whether or not he re-signs.
This could be his (Wright's) poker face but we don't know if its because Sobey is cool to coming back.
SEM with Sobey and Creek would be box office as a product, but Sobey knows and thrives under Wright's system. Sixers can also pay so why not stay?
Other things that make me nervous are statements like....
""I'm not worried at all, I’ve never been a slave to talent," Wright said."
I guess he is at least true to his word, that's how we got Ebi Ere and Adris Deleon.
Equally concerning is...
“To me it’s always been more important to be about the group than the individual.
Wright has allowed players last year to play selfishly largely unchecked.
2 seasons before last we lost to the Hawks in the SF due to Randle hero ball.
While last season was more team oriented, this season just passed was back to more selfish basketball.
