Money wise, we are almost done in terms of creating a core for the future/contending. Using guys like Bargnani/Ross + picks to acquire these players, and using MLE to bring in those specialists/veterans is important. At some point, you're going to need to use the flexibility, there's a reason why you keep cap room, and that's to improve for the future. Contracts eventually come off the books, and eventually the team will be back on the side of trying to get as much cap space as possible. This is the time we start to use the flexibility (or any of it left), and start thinking about winning. Look at Houston, team that had A LOT of cap space, and took the opportunity to trade for Harden, and signed him to a max deal.
