If they choose Pau over Dwight, then Dwight will need to immediately be traded for young competitive players. But a decision needs to be made soon.

Whoa whoa whoa, hold your horses.

Lets wait till off-season before we start discussing who must go. Pau is out injured pretty badly so nobody is going to trade for him right now anyways. Trading Dwight would not be in best interests of this team's future. IMO, it would be stupid to trade Dwight unless if he tells Mitch he is leaving this team in off-season.

Also, they need to make a decision on D'Antoni and his system. If I had a choice, I would go separate ways from D'Antoni and find a coach willing to use AND start both together. Handcuff and muzzle Jimmy Buss too for a month while at it so he doesn't do something stupid again. Only uncuff/unmuzzle him for toilet and food time.
