Ergo, Kapono would be a great fit. Last season they couldn't rebound, so he reacts by trading for J.O. That doesn't work out so he moves him for Marion. Yadda yadda.
Moves to plug holes instead of being part of a bigger picture.

It's hard to blame the guy. I drank the kool-aid like most and thought they'd be a much better team. I'm by no means calling for Colangelo's head. I just want to see a concrete plan put into action instead of piddly-ass moves just to sneak into the playoffs.
