Zach Levine's article gives Ed Wade's response to Roy's request to "have a little time" to think any trade over:
"We'll use all the time allotted to us. If there's the right decision to be made sooner rather than later, we'll make it, otherwise, we'll use all the time available to try to make the right decisions."
In other words, "Screw you, Roy. We'll do things our way. They may be no way at all, but we'll do them our way."
