They are a few depth singings away from being a tough out in the playoffs, assuming Lillard continues to grow as a PG.
I wasn't sold on Batum in RFA with the amount of money he was looking for at the time. Blazers were going to match so it would have taken giving him something close to the max to get the Blazers to back off. But in hindsight, that would have been a good move for us.
