Larry Drew circles the drain

Citing Per Diem:

“After giving Drew a four-year deal this past summer, they might not see the upside of paying two head coaches when the season already is in the tank,” Haberstroh wrote. “Why try to get better results in the short term when it could hurt their odds at the No. 1 overall pick? Not working in Drew’s favor: O.J. Mayo, Larry Sanders and Ersan Ilyasova have taken a collective big step backward under Drew’s watch, and they’re due $76 million going forward. Drew’s contract is a drop in the bucket, by comparison.”
