So the business plan is that obvious.
Contend for a playoff spot.
Retain some key calbre talent i.e. Klow and Rudy at whatever cost.
Get the All Star game.
Obviously you wont "get the All Star game" if your franchise is in "tank mode
Just as suspected.
The really only way forward is to ensure that Val, Derozan, or TR are significant talents in the blooming (2 of the 3 likely are) and then ensure you move bench pieces for more picks I guess.
MU clearly has a mandate to "succeed like Denver"
