The biggest question that has come up in every single thread is:
Should we stay the course and hope for a top 5 pick next year?
Or Should we be aggressive and sign quality FA now?
Basically in my opinion it comes down to whether the FO believes we are going to get a top 5 pick. They obviously don't believe that. They believe with another year under the belt of Kemba, Biz, MKG and the addition of Zeller and the new coaching staff we are a team that is going to be around the 7 - 10 pick in the draft.
We would be looking at maybe a Cauly-Stein type player but not the Wiggins, Parker, Randall player.
So in their analyzing should they take the gamble that we somehow actually win in the lottery process or go after players that could impact the franchise more than a Cauly-Stein/Glen Robinson JR.
If we were guaranteed a top 5 or top 3 I don't think we would sign any FA. But I would choose Al/(Mayo, Hendo, JR) over any player outside the top 5 and I think that is what the Cats are thinking as well.
I have been wanting to wait and willing to wait for the 2014 draft, but think about it this way. Cho is a numbers guy. He is analytical, finding out the odds and the probability of getting pieces on the team.
Right now, the probability is better with the known. The unknown is just a lottery.
