I'm hoping we're getting to the point where we can start making trades. Phasing the vets out, playing the kids more, getting more on court development with some more losses added in. Right now the Kings have the worst +/- in the league. So they should be in last place right now but they've won some close games that has them tied for the 5th worst record. I'd like to be in the bottom 3 by the end of the year to give us better odds at landing one of those top 4 guys.
I'm ready to sign-off on moving two of our vets (basically for future assets). That still leaves us with three vets - enough to play the mentor roles but hopefully not enough to win many games that we shouldn't be winning in a true rebuilding year.
It's still hard for me to endorse overt tanking; in fact, it won't happen. And yet I want us to benefit from a true rebuilding season that means giving the youngsters quality minutes and capping off the season with a top draft pick. Is this too much to ask?
