Yeah, this season has looked excellent, but when we look at our current assets, compared to last season’s assets, it's quite debatable to rate this offseason an A. We have to consider what we lost -

Shawn Marion - Defence, Rebounding
Kapono - Shooting off the bench
Parker - Shooting and defence
Humphries - Rebounding off the bench
Jawaii - Prospect

Possibly Graham and/or Pops (even though he was only here at the end a lot of people still want him back.)

Here's what he gained -

Turk - Offence, leadership, clutch
Evans - Rebounding, Toughness
Rasho - Rebounding, Post defence
Wright - Defence
Jack - Spark off the bench, Offence, Defence
DeRozan - Well he can jump really high...
Bellinelli - instant offence, inconsistency though

So if we break down last season compared to this season, it's obvious we have upgraded. It becomes hard to settle on this season compared to last season because of all the changes we had during the season. Jose injured, Jow being Jow and getting traded, multiple signings etc. But all in all I could give this offseason a B because we had to give up a lot to obtain pieces.
