that's a bit of a stretch. valanciunas could very well be a bust or a long-term deveopment project, batum is not on our team and we may not have the assets to acquire him (especially if we trade the pick for rondo), derozan hasn't proven anything consistently yet, we have no idea how effective rondo can be with a different supporting cast, and we have no idea how serious rondo's injury concerns are.

on top of that, we would have no defined bench, and what appears to be a pretty porous line on the low block defensively.

it could be a playoff team, and it could be a mish-mash of supporting cast guys.
