Wyc Grousbeck Rumors

You mentioned Isaiah. What have you thought of the boost he has brought this team? Epstein: He’s played remarkable. I think if you listen, the fans are just waiting for him to get in the game and start popping shots. And he delivers. I particularly like him, because it’s the first time we’ve had a player that’s eyeball-to-eyeball with me. I’ve had that discussion with him actually. Grousbeck: I’ve heard he actually says he wants to be the best 5-9 player in NBA history. He points out that Allen Iverson was 6 feet. I love him. I love his spirit. We’ve got him for three more years at least, but we’ve got building blocks in place here, young players for multiple years, and we’re gonna try to keep this group together and add to it over the summer and keep moving forward.
What is the approach heading into the summer? It’s obviously fluid, but what’s the mind-set? Grousbeck: Well, we’ve got a lot of draft picks. Those could be traded. We’ve got a lot of room. Over the next few years, we’ll have a lot of room under the salary cap. Our intention is always to be aggressive and opportunistic in the summer. We don’t want to let a summer go by. The summer of 2007 transformed this franchise, and you never know when the next one will happen.
Moving forward, how do you continue this momentum and make sure it doesn’t flatten? Grousbeck: We’re going to have Brad here. We’re going to have our young core here, they’re all under multiyear contracts. And Danny will be here, and we will be here and the fans will be here, and we’re going to keep this rolling as long as we can. Hey, so breaking news then, you’re not selling the team? Grousbeck (laughs): Absolutely not.
