Yea...I mean...unless you move Melo...kind of no point in taking a player here.
They don't have their draft pick in 2016 either.
They are stuck trying to figure out a way to put a team around Calderon/Melo/Tim Hardaway/Larkin (assuming he's back...can't remember if he's a free agent or not)
Now, that isn't actually terrible.
Calderon/Hardaway/Larkin are all players capable of playing in the rotation on a good team.
I wouldn't call Melo a superstar, but he's in that next class of player.
You fill out that roster with a trade on Thursday and then in free agency and you could get to 50 wins really fast in the East.
I think they could get really creative if they trade that number 4 pick and waive some guys.
I mean...it's the dream scenario for them, but what if they signed both Butler and Monroe in free agency? And had previously picked up something quality for that number 4 pick?
You have something serious there. Likely? No, but something like that is possible I think depending on what the actual cap is and what kind of trade they make.
