How were they going to get that one peice? A late 20's draft pick? They were right up against the tax so they couldn't sign anyone of value. Which SG was going to push them past OKC? The Heat?

They already ranked 21st in points per possesion I believe, so they moved an overpaid player for a cheaper (though worse) player in Prince. So they got a cheaper player that fit their needs while opening up the options to add to a still solid core without paying the tax, which I assume ownership won't allow them.
