Updated the Chracker for the 2013 transactions:
*Traded two Portland first round picks to Charlotte for Gerald Wallace while in Portland, obviously for him to use as future Charlotte GM ( for Crash)
Traded Stephen Jackson, Shaun Livingston, and 19th pick for Corey Maggette and 7th pick
Drafted Bismack Biyombo
Drafted Kemba Walker
Signed Reggie Williams to a multi-year contract
Traded 2nd round pick for Byron Mullens
Waived Boris Diaw
Traded Corey Maggette for Ben Gordon and Piston's first round pick
Hired Mike Dunlap
Drafted Michael Kidd-Gilchrist
Drafted Jeffery Taylor
Let DJ Augustine walk
Signed Ramon Sessions to a multi-year contract
Made a successful amnesty waiver claim for the contract of Brendan Haywood
Traded Matt Carroll for Hakim Warrick
Traded Hakim Warrick for Josh McRoberts (so swapped overpaid Carroll for McBob)
Fired Mike Dunlap
Hired Steve Clifford, Patrick Ewing, Mark Price, Baby Silas
Signed Al Jefferson to reasonable, short contract
Drafted Cody Zeller while laughing at "draft experts"
Re-signed Jerome McKinley Henderson Jr. to a very favorable contract
*(Example of his prescient genius)
I've agreed with just about all of his moves, was indifferent to a couple of them, and the bad move may not have been his call. I'd say thats a pretty good hitting percentage there.

Don't forget to include his moves in OKC!
Not sure if signing reggae Williams was really that greater move. We missed out on the real prize of mike dunleavy that year...

Reggie was a more than acceptable risk for the price imo. Shame he never really recovered from his injury last year, and now he's buried behind better players.
Agree with others that Reggie wasn't a feather in the cap as I think he has been a disappointment but, atleast it wasn't a lot of money...
I would really love to know what trades he turned down for the #2 pick and I'm 100% sure that we were involved with the James Harden trade, I would love to know what our offer was or what they wanted for James.
The decision that I'm most worried about is how much he commits to Gerald Henderson, next to using the #2 pick on MKG, I think this is the most important decision that he will have to make that will set the course for the next few years of our franchise... We simply can't overpay for slightly above average talent!
We are light years ahead of where we would be without him and I'm glad he's with us.
One more important point that I would like to state. Cho is getting a lot of credit and we all think it is well deserved. Also, MJ & Higgins have always taken alot of criticism that is also well deserved. What I want to point out is it was Rod Higgins that went to MJ and MJ who ultimately paid the price to bring Cho on board. The role of being a good owner/manager is surrounding yourself with a smart people and letting them do their job and I think MJ and Rod deserve credit for putting their ego's aside and hiring Cho.
While I am still a fan and hopeful he gets better, you can't say drafting Biz was a good move at this point. Too early to call it a bad move either though.
I think we need to wait and see on the Biz pick. He is still very raw andthe 7th pick was probably too high for him.
Hopefully he can learn to soften his hands and be a force in the paint.
