based on what we know, the tean forced that on gordon when they didnt have to.

W/ Gordon and Davis, the team was 16-22. With a high lotto pick, the infusion of vets and speed, and natural progression from Davis, the team is very easily battling for (maybe not wining) a playoff spot. I would be happy with a 40 win team next year. Again, it depends on what you think competitive means.

If you are expecting at least a 7/8 seed (45 wins) next year, I think you will be disappointed unless they happen to land CP3.

This team is on the Anthony Davis timeline

Poor shooter and a poor defender. Not laterally quick. Not a high flyer or above the rim type player.

So we would be drafting another GV to play the 3 at #5, and he might not even come right away? No thanks.

Disagree with this.

If we draft Burke, I think he is ready to be the man on day 1. He is on that level.

Trade Gravy while we can get something for him ASAP IMO.

Why? He's a really solid PG on a good contract. You don't have to trade every asset away to get better. You also need 2 competent PGs to get through an NBA season. Keeping Vasquez allows you to bring Burke along at a natural pace.
