we are not in cap hell for one, and second, MLSE appears to be willing to spend, while memphis was not. Plus, if this team would be as good as memphis, the areana would be packed for every game and they would still make money, especially if we go deep in the playoffs, which is easier to do in the east.

our bigger issue is that we don't have quite the same level of talent as they did, so we may be stuck with a middling team and no room to improve. What we do with Bargnani is huge, and the development of ross and JV.

Best case scenario, where we convert Bargnani into a solid rotation player and ross and JV turn into solid starters, and adding a good backup PG with our MLE and we'd be in a great situation.

Lowry/Demar/Gay/Amir/JV with good PG/Ross and some veteran big to backup our bigs + our 2014 draft pick could be a very good team, the best we ever had. Not a true contender, but a 50+ win team and that could be qualified as a success considering our past.
