Now with that said, I believe alot of factors will take place as far as free agents go. Listening to Phil, I dont think he'll be a heavy spender in 2015, but rather make a major push in 2016 for Kevin Durant.

To be honest there arent any BIG free agents in 2015 to pursue and the few top free agents I really believe will stay with their teams they are currently on.

I'm totally on board with your last statement. And yet I'm not too concerned, because I do believe we have some pieces already. I'm not dreaming of a max player coming... if we can land Marc Gasol, I would be very happy. I think the willingness to do whatever the new regime requires is as important as the skill level of said player.

oh, how long since the last Dolan sighting?
