    From a colangelo perspective, he would have traded away our first by now for a 6th man to help cement the treadmill

    Fair enough. Though I'm not clear why folks acting like we are "tanking" when the job is half done.
    Maybe we are and maybe we are not but for now this is still not clear.

    If the raps are going to tank then no more half arse rebuilds and trades. Gut the team, maximize the draft pick so we can draft lott and then rebuild. This half tank, to move up a spot or two on...

    The Gay and Bragnani trade is more evidence that Masai is following his Denver Nuggets "rebuild on the fly" strategy when he traded Carmelo. The team is not that much worse off without Gay but they...

    The inverse of this thread is what position is the 'weakest' across the league which requires an upgrade.

    I see very few teams that must upgrade the SG position, at least where DD is the guard...

    The lottery was supposed to minimize this but there is always incentive to game the system. This would eliminate it but it rewards mediocre bubble teams, followed by tanking teams followed by...

    To me this says when DD + Anderson, that the defenders hone in on DD and let Anderson go Chuck.
    DD + Gay spreads out the defenders and both players excel.

    I haven't seen WOWY used with ORT-DRT so that is likely a first and novel. Wowy has been used with often with +- points to show how one set of players point differential compares to a second set. ...

    I agree with what you wrote in that the team is too good to tank and it doesn't make sense to throw away talent for nothing.
    That is, a mid 2014 pick + 1st picks in later years from waiting for...

    I think a timeline is fine goal to have but think of this like getting married. I may want to marry a supermodel, like I want to find a partner to trade all my talent and give me a great draft pick...
  15. The option that Masai has available to him is to...

    The option that Masai has available to him is to trade away talent for next to nothing NOW. Or to wait patiently and try to extract better value in a trade. What you see as indecision in terms of...

    If the team can get picks for DD/RG/KL etc in 2014 then what you say makes sense. However, from what I gathered this team is not "set up to tank" and good value trades are not available. What makes...

    It depends on your goal. Is the teams goal is maximize long term success of the franchise. Or is the team's goal to maximize the 2014 draft pick spot or something else?

    That is, a top 5 lotto...
  18. If we are able to trade them all today then sure...

    If we are able to trade them all today then sure but dumping all 5 starters will saturate the market and yield a poor return. But if we are able to trade out RG and KL this year and DD and AJ next...

    It depends on the timeframe and your goal. For example, these are some of many options
    1. Give players away now and tank to perhaps until 2016
    2. "Spin the wheels" by trading away talent...
  20. I agree and I think teams that tank do it half...

    I agree and I think teams that tank do it half way right. The GM convinces the owner to tank to acquire elite talent. The owner buys in but after a couple of years, the owner loses patience as the...

    The worse case scenario is a 11/14 or 10/15 record to start as it delays a decision on tear down. A 8 and 17 record to start gives a clear tear down signal and a 14 and 11 winning record gives a...

    I probabably didn't write that well. My theory is Masai big moves start happening 2016. He will likely still trade (either small tweak upgrades or major teardown along the way) but the UFA...

    The big picture is that there are very few well managed teams to begin with. Orlando lost Dwight and Cleveland lost James and Toronto lost Bosh (and Carter even before then). What will prevent...

    I mean to say, that the going plan is to start committing to long term contract at that time. Until then, we are in a sort of hiatus where we might win or we might tank.
