    Default How would you rate the rebuild so far?

    I think it's gone fairly well;
    • No Turk
    • Majority of the team is under 25
    • Got JJ for a fairly weak later first rounder in a crappy draft
    • Amir, Ed and Demar have and still are progressing fairly well
    • High draft pick
    • Multiple expiring contracts
    • Lots of cap space


    I'm going to give it a B because this team still can't play D.

    So far - alright. I'm going with a B as well - if minus was there it would be a B-.

    Considering the last 2 years we have picked 9 and 13 we have 2 very decent players.

    This draft and off-season is going to be crucial. That B could very easily turn to an F. I hope Jose goes and Triano is gone as well.

    Looking at where the team was at the end of last season and where they are now I need to give the rebuild so far a solid B. There is much work to be done but getting rid of Turkoglu for Barbosa was big. The Amir Johnson signing now looks solid. The drafting of ED Davis and Solomon Alabi was excellent. Adding Wright, Ajinca and Bayless were solid moves. The JJ trade was excellent. Kleiza looked to be a solid signing followed up by extremely bad luck. Like him or not, I don't think you can give him a bad grade on the rebuild so far. He brought in a bunch of talented young players.

    I too am hoping Triano isn't coaching here next year. He's had his chance, and, while it's true you can only coach so far as the talent on the floor will allow, something has to be done about the defensive culture (or lack thereof) of this team. It's high time the Raps brought in a vet with defensive credentials.

    As far as the rebuild, I also give a B, which to me is basically a holding pattern. A lot hinges upon the draft and/or the lockout. If there's a lockout, the holding pattern will likely continue until next year, where there will be a new draft filled to the end of the lottery almost with excellent, starter-quality talent.

    If Bargnani had already been moved, the grade could be an A-, though that too is contingent upon what was received in return.

    I am going with a grade of C.

    I feel that we are positioned to improve, we still have a few moves to make in order to take the next step. Once I see how the draft unfolds and what we do with our expiring deals I can reevaluate. Right now we are just in the rough draft of the assignment, the layout is there but will the team go deep enough into detail to warrant a better grade, we won't know till the final edit.

    If you asked me to rate the team I'd say C, we've
