Be an intelligent team on both ends. Basically, like the Spurs.

Good question. I suspect that our youngsters minus Moore and Jones will be with us, and I honestly think they'll all be impact players. I'm not sure I see any of our current veterans still with the team, unless we resign Nelson and Afflalo uses his option (and we haven't traded him). I do expect that Hennigan will have landed us two all stars by this point and that we'll be perennial dark horses as our current crop of rookies start their second contracts. I would love it if we have found a franchise player by this point.

Well, it's not going to happen if we field a competitive team next year. We should have the cap space in 2015 to sign two max guys and Favors and Wall are the kind of guys that I would imagine would love to team up and lead an up and coming team. So really, I'm just saying:

PG: Max Free Agent
SG: this years lottery pick
SF: next years lottery pick
PF: Nicholson
C: Max Free Agent

Doesn't seem too unrealistic if Henny stops giving players like Jameer $9 mil per year deals. This should be the "plan" anyway. Plus, I did say "hope for".

The team as constructed right now has a terrific group nucleus mix of rookies and young players with potential. The few veterans who are scattered across the roster, are only being used to help keep the team somewhat significant. These veterans (some of which who truly are young veterans with Davis, Afflalo, Nelson, and Redick), have the possibilities of either staying with the team as bench roleplayers in the future, being traded soon to a contender, or staying with us until they opt out as a Free Agent.

The young players, in my opinion, will stick with us and develop through these next 3 years. I see plenty of potential in who we have right now, jugding by the season thus far. This is where I see our lineups 3 years down the line. All we need is to somehow find a dominant, near franchise-calibre shooting guard to take over when Afflalo leaves. Hopefully we find this player either through free agency or the draft. He must be young enough to be a few years before his prime.

Starting lineup:

Moore
<All-Star calibre young Shooting Guard>
Harkless
Nicholson
Vucevic

Bench lineup(of impact):

D. Jones
O'Quinn
Nelson
Redick
<Tall, Athletic Power Foward who can gaurd taller Power Fowards>


Any team with Moore as their starting PG isn't going anywhere.

Sorry man but that is so unlikely your expecting to get Wiggins next year so u are putting all your hope in gettin the number one pick wat this team is right now is building a strong winning culture with smart teaching and smart draft picks i really like this team they might not be bad enough to get a top pick but there is a great mix of youth and experienced Vets to teach them and to establish that culture it is more sustainable than prayin for a number one pick

^ Well, if that's Henny's real plan we're not going to win a championship unless he can convince top flight free agents to come to Orlando over places like LA, NY, Chicago, and the likes. Plus the top stars are already locked up for a while so we're going to be a team that makes the playoffs yet never has a chance to win a championship. Yay!!! I can't wait for 5-10 years of that!

Also, there are possibly 3-5 stars in next year's draft. We don't NEED the #1 pick. It sure would be nice though.

The wizards have bad scouts, drafted knuckleheads, signed knuckleheads and had knuckleheads coaching the team. Of course I don't want to be the wizards but I do trust the team that RDV hired to lead this franchise. I also trust that RDV will spend money to be competitive. Something that a lot of bottom feeders cannot say about their owners.

I disagree with the sentiment that there are 3-5 stars in next years draft. There may be 1-2.

I was talking about the 2014 draft. There is maybe one in this year's draft and he isn't the 2 you listed.

I like Ben McLemore. The season is still young though, so we'll see.

Just watched some of his highlights and he has a real nice J, but we'll see. Had never heard of him before you mentioned him, so goes to show how much can change by the time the draft comes around.

I've been seriously following him since his second or third game. He wasn't even a 1st round pick when the year started but seems like the real deal and has shot up the draft boards since the season began. Great athlete, A+ shooter, plays defense and plays within the offense. Very impressive for a freshman.

I do like to wait for March Madness to see how players perform under pressure though before claiming they're a star type of player. But as of now, he has shown the potential.

I rely on, JV, Henningan and his crew, so I see us being a playoff team.

I think every player on our roster today can be replaced, except for Nicholson maybe, so I wouldnt be surprised if none of these guys stick around too long. It would be awesome to keep Vuceviv, Nicholson, Harkless, Redick and Nelson, on good contracts, though.

I expect Hedo to be with the Magic, some peoples worst nightmare will come true. Hopefully, he will be a scout for Eastern Europe, not a "veteran presence in the locker room."

O'Quinn will have a longer and more successful NBA career than Nicholson. Any takers?
