The "NO MOVES" depth chart vs others

I liked the draft, was a bit surprised that we didn't see any trades, but it actually leaves the team with a very balanced roster. In the absence of any major moves - I am a little concerned that Batum is overpaid locking up flexibility. But, consider if no moves are made beyond signing the guys the Blazers already have some claim to:

PG: Lillard/ N. Smith

SG: Matthews/ E. Williams/ Barton

SF: Batum/ Babbitt/ Claver

PF: Aldridge/ Hickson/ S. Williams

C: Leonard/ Freeland/ K. Thomas

That's a 14 man roster leaving the Blazers a slot to make an unbalanced trade should a camp invitee prove himself worthy, or left open for the opportunity of a mid-season unbalanced trade. Elliot Williams can play some "1" and all of the 3rd string guys can play more than one position, without a sense of entitlement to major minutes (good chemistry?)
