It's not, but that would involve being well under the cap and having room for a max free agent which we don't have, and getting lucky with a later pick which is not something you want to bet your franchise's success on.

And continuing with the metaphor, it's not going to ever learn to walk if the it has no legs...what we have here is no legs. It can crawl all it wants but it will never be able to walk, much less run, unless it gets lucky and somebody wants to give it some free prosthetics, which would in this case be somebody trading their franchise player in exchange for the assets we have which are not worth one bar maybe JV and our pick.
