Personally think TT is the most likely one traded though.
As far as Zizic I think he has proven himself at least worthy of retaining at his current pay scale and would not be moved for less than replacement value( not just as a throw in).
I think Zizic is a third C or 5th big, however you want to classify it, and I also think the team will be willing to move TT and Henson at the DL regardless of where they are in the standings. Neither are in the long term plans at this point.
Priority one is figuring out if Sexton and Garland can play together, two is to keep their pick next year. After that finding a C that can play today's NBA game, and figuring out what to do with KLove in order are next on the agenda.
I think keeping the upcoming 1st is less of a concern than people think. I think they would rather the team play well and realize they didn't make a mistake so they just miss the playoffs than trying to purposely lose and not get to find out what htey really have because they never played meaningful basketball all year since they were tanking to keep their pick.
Well, they've stacked the deck pretty well towards keeping that pick especially once they start trading expiring vets for future picks and/or find someone who is willing to give up something good for Kevin.
So, yeah, if they actually play well because player's are exceeding expectations, I don't think they'll be concerned with losing the 10th + pick in the draft; and will instead focus on making the most of what we bring in via trade.
Still, this expected purge will seem like tanking to many.
