The team should consider all options. Why shouldn't it be option 1 ? You get an ownership that is committed to wins and making a fortune on the franchise. Dump the guys you don't want to make cap space and then get the correct players on really good established players. Sure, trades work too... especially if you get back picks.
Toronto has never established an identity through the draft even when they did have solid picks in Carter and McGrady. They never stuck around to develop in the long-term. I don't see any reason why they would start now. And let's not even forget the flops we had in the the mid-00 drafts.
