Chandler could be a piece that helps define the core. We're coming off a couple seasons of terribly defined roles that amounted to a mish mash that doesn't gel. Chandler could easily be a glue guy.
I think Jonas should be one piece. Maybe Bargs, although he's only really had a handful of games where he looks like a verifiable starter himself, and it's not out of the realm of possibility that the right core might not include him. As for what pieces - again - let's see what happens next.
