The more I think about it, the more I realize that this season is likely done and we have to be put in a postion that allows us to succeed next season and for future seasons. Things that need to be done:
a. keep all draft picks to develop depth and assets
b. if we do decide to trade J.O. for Marion it gives us the ability to see two things:
-if this team plays better with a talented SF and shows improvement but doesn't have depth, we then know what the problem is and what needs to be addressed in the offseason
-can Jose, with an explosive wing, play an uptempo game. I have argued and a few others here have also, that Jose unwillingness to push the ball is due to not having the wingmen or wingmen he can trust. If Jose still plays the passive game with an explosive wing then maybe it should be examined that he too is expendable
This season imo, is done right now, but it can still be exciting times for experimentation and to really see how close or far this team really is.
