The pick they gave up was not important if you analyze it. It was top 5 protected. So they won't be losing a Wiggins, Parker, Randle, Smart, or Gordon if they're in position to land them.
A core of Holiday, Gordon, and Davis is pretty nice. And they'll have Vasquez, Anderson, and Rivers coming off the bench. I think they did a solid job of taking a couple of steps forward tonight.
