Guys are getting locked into extensions earlier and with bigger sums than ever. Have dedicated scouts and draft the best player available. Groom them to become superstars and with a little luck you can grow a core of youth into a team that can win within a few seasons. Mortgaging the farm to put us over the top only works when we've already been established as legitimate threats in the playoffs consistently. With that said, I think you keep it only if it remains a top 5 pick. Otherwise ship it with a pf for a proven and relatively young wing or combo guard. At the very least try to trade up one of our pfs besides Bargs
and JV into Paul Millsap.
