Well, I guess there are 2 ways this can go....
1. Lowry proves his worth, stays healthy and helps make everyone on the floor better, Demar has a long range shot and improved defense, Gay gets serious about leading a team in every way, Amir and Hansbrough prove more than capable at 4, JV is ready to make a big contribution and they sit in 7th/8th playoff spot.
2. Early injuries, they are not playing well as a team, clear their best efforts are leading nowhere. The evaluation is over. Ship off assets early enough to join the tankers.
High lottery pick and whatever picks they can pick up from moving assets, stink it up in 2015 for yet another high lottery pick. Plenty of cash to spend properly.
