Utah got better today, the Lakers will be better, we were 9 games behind the Spurs for the 8 seed. Clippers more than possibly get Kawhi. How do we make the playoffs by resigning Barnes, replacing Cauley-Stein with a very similar level center Dedmon ( only real difference is 3 pt and ft shooting) and a old fading Trevor Ariza. I just have to be honest I don’t see the improvement from the moves. It all hinges on the younger guys Fox, Heild, Bagley getting way better.
And the players we brought in will make them better.
We aren't signing guys to make a championship push. The guys we've brought in will absolutely help us make a playoff push though and that's the goal. We believe in our young guys but they're still 3-5 years away from being a real contender, it's all about bringing in vets that fit well around them to maximize their strengths and help their development. The moves have been great so far.
