Well it is now being reported that Durant was not in fact ready to play. Durant said he wasn't physically close enough to have helped the team. So I guess if you want to read between the lines his season for all intensive purposes was done after he was injured. Now if that is the case then realistically they should have been shopping earlier for a fill in. Waiting and seeing if Tino or Doege were good enough was a huge gamble and we all know its one the Riders lost.
I can understand not wanting to give opposing teams any information but realistically he was done for the year. It will be interesting to see what or who the Riders get as a back up as it is reported that they will not go through next year in the same situation that if Durant gets hurt they don't have a solid backup.
So that brings into question what are the Lions going to do about Glenn? No he didn't have a good year and yes he wants to be a starter but realistically his shot in BC this year may have been his last to do so.
Do the Lions keep him or cut him? if he gets cut of course they get nothing so look if they do anything to try and do a trade with some team. Do we sit tight and see if anyone else bites on him if in fact they decide he is done in BC and hope to get him as a backup for cheap cheap or do we make a trade? Picard for Glenn? Is that a good deal for the Riders?
