If you're honest with yourself, ask, is this a team that has parts to win a championship? I don't see it. Our goals was to make the playoffs. That's where we are.

I'd be thrilled if this year we land Zeller and next year, somehow land Wiggins to add to a core of JV and Ross and you're in a real good position with legit upside on cheap contracts. Add a few shrewd pieces and away you go.
if the worst team was guaranteed the first pick, then sure. but with most chances of .250 of winning it, and a chance to drop to fourth even with the worst record, is it really a smart thing to do? also, zeller, and wiggin, can both end up being busts. we know demar can straight up ball, and lowry. better keeping the known quantities for a slight chance at a possibly better quantity in rooks.
