    The last option on the poll isnt guaranteed, even if we do make trades and have a solid team we still might not make the east finals and then what else is left for us?

    What about losing in the first round? Everyone's acting like the 2nd round of the playoffs is a given and it's far from that.

    I don't care about this season really to be honest. I just want the team to keep moving forward.

    Not enough info to be able to make a decisive opinion, but I lean towards 2.

    1. How much do we give up to tank? If we're talking about trading Lowry and DeRozan for a pair of mid to late-firsts plus bad contracts, while our own pick improves to top 5, that's great. Giving up our established guys for little or nothing, and then packaging, say Ross, JV, and our first-rounder to move up into the top 5 on draft night? No thanks. (This example is an exaggeration, but my point is that you can't know if this is a good outcome without knowing the cost.)

    2. Probably the option that I'm most okay with, assuming this is essentially a 'stay the course' direction.

    3. Depends what we give up to get there. Trading pieces that are not part of our core or future (including draft picks) to get to the final four, absolutely. But giving up draft picks and prospects for veterans, while failing to improve our chance at retaining Lowry, doesn't set us up well for the future. A one year window isn't going to accomplish anything, regardless of what trades we make.

    Or finishing outside of the playoffs altogether if we get nailed by injuries or the team comes back down to earth?

    seeing Demar, Terrence and Lowry finish the season as raptors would make me more than happy

    None of the options are guaranteed ... The questions are based on: If A happens then would you be happy.

    We can tank and still not get top 5 picks, we can not make any trade and finish 9 and not make the play off but end with the late first round and ...

    Good point ... I assumed with the all injuries and the fact that half the teams are tanking, we can make the 2nd round but you are right, that could be one option.

    LOL, I did not think we have a real chance against Indiana and most likely Miami if we don't make any more moves. But you are right, that could be one option as well.

    I think people hit the nail on the head. If we get to the 2nd round, of course Id be happy. Question is, will we actually get there if we set out with that as our goal.
    Same question for a top 5 pick. Id also be happy if we got that.
    So, perhaps the question is, which of the two goals is most likely to end up in us finshing 9th-10th in the east, not making the playoffs and having a shitty draft pick. Thats certainly the option that i do not want.

    Keeping our starting 5 together and seeing if we can add to the team by trading some of our players who are stuck on the bench. See if we can get something for Novak, Fields, Hayes or Stone. I know it is almost impossible but you never know with Masai he seems to be a miracle worker! Remember he traded Barg's and Gay!!! WoW never really thought that would get done and come back with workable pieces. I would like to extend Lowry's CONTRACT THAT IS IF IT IS GOING TO BE RFEASONABLE. Right now we have a very good starting lineup. Lets keep it that way!!
