Ferry was not as good as people make him out to be. I remember about 4 years ago when Ferry had about 50 million or more to spend on FAs and got Larry Hughes, Donyell Marshall, Damon Jones and resigned Z to a huge contract. That was when he had to chance to set up the team for years and messed. Ray Allen was a FA that year and he said the Cavs never called.
On another note, Ferry said he would never work with Calipari, that what you want from that.
