Whiz and Grimm were also here when the guy never stepped up to the plate to replace an aging Jeff Harting. Whiz and Grimm were also paying attention when this team needed a center and instead of 'expecting' Okobi, this organization went out and signed Mahan. Then, Okobi went to Arizona I believe he was the 3rd
option at center (behind Johnson and Hodel). The guy was not even considered a second string center in Arizona.
This decision was inevitable if you ask me, so no I'm not surprised.
