For those against the Accelerated Build Model - TigerinATL
Do you at least agree that Demps has pulled in more talent than anticipated based on the assets on hand since they shifted to the "surround AD with young vets" model? Year 1 Ryno + Lopez Year 2 Holiday + Evans Year 3 Asik It doesn't seem crazy that Demps would be able to pull in a quality SF...

Shaky Gordon Rumor - TigerinATL
A poster on PR claims he heard the Wolves offered KMart for Gordon. I actually think it could make sense. On the one hand you have to do something if you hope to keep Love, and on the other hand if you lose Love, Gordon comes off the books earlier than Martin if you have to rebuild. 2 years earli...

Why moving Gordon isn't as high of a priority anymore - TigerinATL
The most likely path to fix the roster imbalance has always been sign a SF with the MLE this offseason (it's a fairly deep FA class at 3&D SF compared to 2015) and clear enough cap space by moving Gordon to go after a center in 2015, pipe dream being Gasol, realistic top target being Asik. The prim...

Will Asik Finish Games? - TigerinATL
He's a defensive force, but he's not very good on offense and is a low 60% FT shooter. With rumors and common sense pointing to Ryno being traded, do we need to target another stretch 4 if we trade Anderson? Channing Frye just opted out.

Could replacing Anthony Morrow necessitate trading for a draft pick? - TigerinATL
