We lost talent in Gay despite what his perfromance here was; but we picked up depth a PG and depth in the forecourt which argueably makes us deeper and better.
I reserve my judegment. This may NOT be a tank move at all.
I would tend to agree with this post, im not convinced the quote unquote tank is a done deal.
Our main weakness was our bench scoring, and now we have a deep bench. We lost our best isolation scorer, but Demar isnt a big drop off from Rudy in that dept.
In the weak Atlantic, we could still be a playoff team....4th seed actually, not a good thing.
If not for the Denver Meltdown, we would have just completed a .500 West Coast Rd trip.
Judging by all the East teams just as bad as us, A tanking season isnt a guarantee that we get Wiggins. It might give us 15% chance at landing him. He is the only player worth tanking for....
My worst fear is we achieve more of the same last 5 years. Bad enough to miss the playoffs, good enough to not get a good lottery pick.
