When Ujuri says the team will dictate where we go, that kind of means something, and it's not that he has chosen anything like a treadmill, for this year or any period of time.
I think you are reading the article very selectively, the author opinion is that we're clearly trying to tank, but the market is very soft for unloading assets. We may not be able to tank, despite wanting to. It also makes no optimistic predictions for our future, my clear impression is lowe feels that we should tank, but unfortunately we may not be able to and thus end up stuck in no man's land.

I still think there's plenty of time to make up ground because the other tanking teams are facing the same issues we do. Utah, Orlando and Boston are overachieving and rondo is around the corner ....
