Go back to the 2011 draft: Leonard and Faried instead of Vesely and Singleton.
Instead of Anderson, add Fields or Rush (long-term), Brand (for 1-2 years) and Ilyasova (long-term).
But, this has the problem that we'd have been better last year and not gotten Beal. So can't really include him in the rotation. Still, we'd have been somewhere in the lottery and gotten lets say Drummond (or whoever you prefer to put there.
And we'd have had 2 picks in Round two, and from this draft there will be very good players come from there. And, instead of Price how about an earlier move for a young backup point guard with a better resume (i.e. instead of the trade for Okaforiza). Then sign Machado as well.

We'll likely have to start over to get there.
People say I'm mellowing with age. Nah.
It is still not possible to formulate a counter-argument -- even if I say... Is so!
