Say we trade Bargs and Calderon for a good SF (say Iggy)

Lowry, LIII
DD, Ross
Iggy, AA, Pietrus, Fields, Kleiza
Davis, Kleiza, Amir
Gray, JV

Sorry, but bar an explosion from Ross and JV this team means treadmill with first round playoff exits for years to come, and if lowry keeps up with his injuries we are one injury away from the 12th-14th in the standings. At this point, if the '14 is stacked, why not tank hard?
I think Ross and JV are capable of being much better... and adding Iggy would be huge. One of the best two-way players in the game that makes others better and can be fit with many different types of players.
