Reading some posts im convincing myself it could be a good thing to trade Lowry.

I was thinking about the possibility to blow up anything (like a fire sale) to stockpile picks.

Trade Lowry for a high pick
Trade DD for a high pick
Trade Calderon for a bad contract and a high pick (like the cavs did with baron)
Amnesty Bargs and Load another bad contract for a high pick
Trade Davis for a pick

Keep Ross, Lucas III, JV and the other players that are not worth a buck and tank hard next year.

With some luck if its not our pick, its one of the traded picks (if they are protected like ours with OKC we will receive multiple picks --> we end dead last and lower the chances other teams can keep their picks).

Last but not least, avoid to be bottom 3 this year, with some luck we can be around 7-8th in the standings (at this point buy back the pick, i dont think it will be this expensive in a weak draft ... in case we get unlucky and get a top3 ).

This is my way for a rebuilding and hard tanking for the stacked '14 class.
