Yep. And that will likely mean trading a player that is not one of those one-dimensional guys.

I don't think there should be too much of a rush. They should get a good idea of who can work well within a team offense and team defense that includes a Lowry and a Valanciunas in it. Those two guys are not getting traded. So which assets garner some interest while not complimenting the biggest assets here? That will take a bit of time, and they might not be able to do any better than getting draft picks. So there might have to be a lateral trade just to clear out some of the replication in the meantime. My biggest worry is that team cohesion starts to break down along with the rotation.

BC's has some work to do, and at the same time he can't be too hasty. Not a great situation, but he put himself in that box, and he better not put too much on the coach.
