If we're the worst, good chance pick will remain with us. Lowest we could fall to is fourth (35 percent chance). If we could add a top 3 pick that would be sweet. Noel or Shabazz.

Reporting for duty! Top three look strong in an otherwise weaker draft. Would be nice to somehow get our pick back. If only we were dealing with a front office as defunct as our own.

this season plan should be:
Tank..
Trade Bargs for 2014 pick
Let Rookies play
Trade or resign (to a reasonable deal) Jose
FA addition in the summer
Next season:
Compete for playoffs
give OKC their pick
Resign Lowry

Do all that and no way you're re-signing Lowry. He's as good as gone if we don't add talent in the next 9 months.

best we'd get for Bargs is a mid-late first rounder, straightup

Top 3 pick, Free agent in summer,in 2014 another pick that is talent right there. I dont think that Bargs or Jose is going to help to resign Lowry.. Hell we still have amnesty to free up the cap space

I would rather keep Andrea than trading him for a mid to late first round pick coupled with an expiring. I would only trade him for a lottery pick in the offseason, if we could use the space to acquire a guy like Iggy (if he opts out) or another good big via free agency.

I honestly don't understand the hype around Lowry. Yes he has good stats but up and coming PGs are a dime a dozen these days. Rather draft a guy with a late 1st/early 2nd round pick and have him come up slowly with JV/young SF. In 3-5 years when JV reaches his potential, this team might be something if it has some new pieces to grow with him.
