This was not tanking. Tanking means intentionally losing games. I do have a problem with calling it tanking because tanking means a lack of integrity and I feel Colangelo's integrity is intact.
A team cap dumping it's talent to try in win the lottery(Bobcats, ie: tanking) is as bad as a boxer taking a dive in a championship title bout in my opinion.
