They are not going to get a meaningful return for Trey. If they trade him before the season starts, it will be mainly a salary dump. If he has a good first half and they trade him at the deadline, they won’t get much back for him because of his limitations, and because the receiving team only have him for a couple of months.
It is possible that Elias may be able to do some Effective horse trading and get an unusual return for Trey, but it remains to be seen whether Mike can do that kind of trading.
I'm glad to see him go. Sure he had some good to really good recruiting classes but his offensive scheme was terrible. It seemed they constantly went on scoring droughts regardless of talent level on team. And they always played down to competition or came out looking horrible in the first half and that's on coaching.
Not to mention the way they play offense is just incredibly boring to watch.
If you get the right coach, you can win, whether or not you have a "top 25" job or not. Look at what Nate Oats has done at Alabama, or what Mark Few has done at Gonzaga.
I wish Maryland had hired Porter Moser last spring, but that ship has sailed. I would give Sarunas Jasikevicius serious consideration. He's an alum from the Gary Williams days, he played in the NBA and became an international star, and he's currently the best coach in the European leagues.
Then why are multiple basketball analysts calling this job a top-25 job and saying they think that Maryland has a legitimate chance to snag someone like Oats or Enfield or Musselman or Bruce Pearl? This isn't my opinion - I actually don't think we can lure away Oats because we can't pay him what Alabama can. But others think that this job is enticing enough that we could.
Edit to add: you haven't actually given me any reasons why Maryland is worse as a HC destinstion than the 5 schools I listed. You literally just ad hominem in response.
