The worst idea I can imagine is picking up Colangelo's option for another year, finishing 10th in the conference, drafting late in the lottery, resigning Lowry and Gay for something like 30 million per year combined, and being stuck with this roster as Colangelo has built it.
I would like someone new to take a wrecking ball to this team, start from scratch, and take a shot at getting an elite talent in the draft to build around. If its true they could have traded Derozan, JV, and a pick for Harden, they should have done it. Who knows how serious the negotiations were at the time.
It isnt trolling to speak up with an unpopular opinion.
