    Default True Rebuild or Win Now

    Lately I've been debating the merits of doing a true rebuild vs. trading some of our young talent to make us a good team next year. I was curious what others at the Republic might think so i decided to frame the question this way: If we could take all but one of our young players (DD, Amir, Ed, Bargs, Bayless, etc...) and picks and trade them to bring back two borderline all-star type guys would you do it? Think of a combination like Josh Smith and Monta Ellis or Al Jefferson and Danny granger, guys who are not franchise players but who are still very very good.

    Why would you want two borderline all-stars when there's gonna be teams with at least 2-3 true all-stars/superstars that won't even win a championship? The only two on our team I truly care to keep are DeMar and Ed. I still say stick with the all-out rebuild if that's the plan right now. The draft pick this year could turn into something special and I'd feel alright going forward with that player along with the two aforementioned.

    True rebuild hands down. We can't even pull off a "win now" anyways, no stars want to come here.

    We would be trading for guys, not signing them so it doesn't matter that no one wants to be here. Not that I believe that that is true anyway.

    The argument would be that we have no idea if the guys we have now will lead us to the promised land and that getting some guys that are already good could speed things up and maybe convince a big named free agent to come here. Additionally it would make us start winning, would is always nice.
    I tend to agree that we should stick with a rebuild, but then I think Demar is a future all-star, Ed is going to be KG good, and secretly still hope that Bargs can get his act together.

    Unhappy stars won't play to their potential and would complete throw the team chemistry out the window. That would be retarded if we traded for guys who don't want to be here.

    Trading for a borderline All-Star or two would doom the team to mediocrity and depress the crap out of me (okay, I wouldn't actually get depressed, but you get my point).

    Finding the pieces that fit is the major issue here, I mean look at GS they have 2 borderline all stars in Monta and Curry as well as the Clippers in B.Griffin and E Gordon and they have trouble winning.
