They are lacking in depth, and don't have any space to try to acquire some. In three years, Porter/Beal/Wall will combine to make around $92M, next year, those three are around $70M.
They don't have much youth that hasn't already reached, or very close to, their ceiling.
If they aren't busy this summer, buying second rounders and trying to rid themselves of guys like Mahinmi/Gorat while trying to sell high on whatever value Oubre has remaining, I'm not expecting much more.
I mean, Wall was absolutely gassed. Had he had a competent backup, and a coach that can stagger, they probably would have won this series.
I'd try to get SRPs for guys like Aaron Holiday, De'Anthony Melton, Chimezu Metu, Shake Milton, Malik Newman. If Chandler Hutchinson drops, you have to do everything possible to get his rights as well.
