This was true 1-2 year ago. Now we need to look at the cap. There's two ways to get a star, trade or FA.
We have max space this year and maybe next year. This year outside of Brandon Ingram or AD there's not really anyone else that would fit our team. Neither is going to come to Atlanta.
How are we going to get another top 20 player next to Trae? With this year's number 6 pick? I doubt we'll be in the lottery again. We need to make a trade or we'll end up like the pacers.
Unless AD wants to come, I think TS is going to sign a couple minimum vets to one year deals and maybe another to slightly better player to a one or two year deal. I think he's is going to try to improve the team enough to make a PO run, but continue to invest in developing his young picks.
I wish Hawks fans would show a little more faith in our young high picks. What is Hunter's and Cam's ceiling? Maybe high enough to develop another star internally.
TS can roll back his cap space for another year or two and still have max space if he signs cheap, short deals.
He has already indicated that he wants his guys to develop into the teams future stars, like what happened in GS.
I like his plan
