Trade Bargs/Lowry/Caldy, amnesty Kleiza...build around Ross/Davis/JV/Derozan and the prospects/picks we get from the trades. When did I say trade the best talent we have? It may be a "2 year rebuild" but the team's been mediocre at best for the most part in the last 7 years even with Bosh.

A quick fix won't work for this team where BC throws money at an aging FA. People need to look at the big picture instead of hoping for just playoff basketball. This team needs a Houston Rockets type rebuild after Yao and TMac left. They freed up salary, stocked up on picks who are starting to come into their own (Parsons, Patterson) and they picked up a top SG as well trading some of their assets.
