Concerning above statements, basically, Ujiri needs this team to not overachieve.

There are a couple of ways to create buzz by 2016. Either pick up stud draft picks a la OKC and have people dreaming about what they will become some day or go ahead and become a contender through management moves.

If they play that tough stretch of games and come out above .500, he may be stuck. How does Ujiri spin the "I'm a karma guy and you have to always try to win", if you trade guys on a team that is winning?

Having said that, in his own quiet moments, I don't think he thinks this team can dominate, so he is waiting to see who's coming along to Disneyland when they make heir big splash and who is getting shipped to Minnesota.
