Well first off, the Clips are over hte cap, and Ballmer will go balls deep into the tax to remain a contender. Next season CANNOT be a failure and risk Kawhi and PG13 fleeing this dumpster fire (bitchass Doc will soon follow with his "i dont coach a rebuild" when it was all his fault for falling apart). Next year could be apocalyptic if the team suffers another massive letdown under Doc,
Roster wise, everyone gets resigned. Marcus Morris, i believe we have his bird rights, so bring him back to something reasonable, and have a full off season to integrate him. Harrell definitely hurt his stock so he'll be getting a paycut from what he was expecting, but do your best to bring him back anyway. If JaMychal Green opts out, you bring him back, cuz its not like money is a limiting factor atm with Ballmer cutting checks. Then use the Tax Payer MLE on the best playmaking PG on the market. It could be RJax, might even be Rondo if he helps the Lakers win the chip, who knows who it could be. Then i'd bring in Lin to be a 3rd PG for the vet min, who has experience in the playoff wars, can playmake some, and most importantly is a great locker room guy. This team is full of knuckleheads, so bringing in some grounded grizzled vets to settle them down, would be good. Guys who will run through walls for the chance to help the team, i'd bring back Noah as well if his health checks out. I want some harder workers in the locker to help instill discipline and good habits into the young guys.
You bring everyone back... and then you let the Logo wheel and deal with a roster full of mismatched talent, until the Logo finds the right deals to bring back the right players. Just because everyone is back doesnt mean everyone will be sticking around. Package players 2 or 3 at at time to get upgrades that FIT in whatever team concept theyre going with next year.
Ideally i'd **** Doc, but i dont think Ballmer has the balls to do it, with the whole BLM Social Justice Movement in full swing, and Doc scummily insinuating himself into the "struggle". Instead Ballmer better be ready to cut checks to bring everyone back, eat a lux tax bill, and get out of the way and let the Logo do his work. Personally i'd like to bring in Dantoni, sure he's no defensive whiz, but offensive i think he can unlock PG13 to his max potential and at least help the team generate some easy baskets by instituting offensive principles. There's enough defensive talent on the team to make it respectable, and just have Dantoni find an assistant to hand that end of the floor.
