We have a decent core, and now we can make a splash in free agency.

A lot of people will say "but the goal is not to be a treadmill team, but to win it all", but to "win it all", you have to make strides first. I think BC will make a couple of big free agent acquisitions, and even if we only squeak into the playoffs for the next year or two, we get some of our younger core a good taste at what it takes to be successful, and how different playoff basketball really is.
Take a look at the Eastern Conference. Beyond Miami, Chicago, Indiana what do you have? No a lot. There is no reason why we can't be in the mix after those teams with Philadelphia, Orlando......with a couple solid additions this summer. Especially if Valanciunas can be just decent in his rookie year.
