The only way I see us doing anything is if we somehow convince Chicago or Indiana to let go of Butler/PG. We'd have to send off MKG, Frank, Lamb/Marco and Sessions plus 2 firsts for Butler/PG and likely a bad contract. We would probably still suck this season because we'd have no bench and chemistry would be an issue but making the playoffs and getting some more experience would be a definite possibility. Then for next year we'd have to hope our core of Kemba, Batum, Cody and whichever player we traded for would be enough to get vets looking to make a run to take less than market value to fill our bench out. I don't figure we could pull it off but that is the only scenario I can see that makes us legitimately competitive in the next year or so.

Potential trade for PG would also have to send our unprotected first this year, the right to swap firsts next year and in 19(I'm bad at draft pick valuing so this maybe to much/little) http://www.espn.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=hglwqhm

Butler trade, same picks as for PG http://www.espn.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=j7rztul

Edit: added trade machine scenarios

It's sad that Batum and Cody are even considered core players..

Cody is OK. So is Batum. Unfortunately in Batum's case we're asking him to be something he's not, he's at best the glue guy on a contender (think Green) or a 3rd option. We're basically playing him as a 2nd option and Kemba as 1 (which Kemba is a fringe 2nd option on his best day). Our record is actually horrible since Cody's been out and it isnt a coincidence.

I was gonna say that your post was pretty spot-on until you had to say that and remind us all how ignorant you are

He's just outside the top 20 in scoring and is ahead of Paul George

Kemba's not a #1 bro it's wishful thinking at this point. He's still a beast though.

PG is pretty overrated too. Another Tier 2 guy like Kemba.
