“Is there a chance that we could have a different look? Absolutely there’s a ‘chance,'” Williams said. “I would say that chance is very, very slim.

Williams also admitted that most of the calls he’s getting from GMs at this point are of the prank variety.
“I’ve got a lot of friends in the game, so some of them are calling just to check in, make sure we are kind of where we are,” Williams smiled. “There’s a lot of rumors out there about us going either way, either being buyers or sellers, so there’s people checking in. Then there’s some of the more smart aleck friends of mine in the general manager ranks that are calling with humorous anecdotes as to what’s going on. It’s just that time of year. I think it’s the most fun time to be a general manager that there is during the calendar year.”
