Dont we have too many prospects on this team already ?






During the draft, we acquired 3 good prospects that we thought at the time could fill up the bench and fill our needs for the team. But the problem is CJ McCollum projects as a 2-guard and will probably play most of his minutes at the 2, given his low assist-to-turnover ratio for someone of his height. Drafting Allen Crabbe as a SG while we still have Barton on the team is a bit of a redundant move, as we still have Wes on the team also. Unless you plan on playing Barton as a SF next year, he wont get any minutes. And while Withey appears to fill some needs defensively, we still have Leonard, we just acquired Thomas Robinson and we will probably acquire one more starting center. Assuming that both that starting center and Leonard get 28/20 minutes per game while Robinson gets 12-14 behind Aldridge, we end up with 2 of our drafted players not getting the minutes they need to either develop or serve the purpose they were drafted for.

So ultimately, we have managed to eat away from our cap space for this summer so far without filling any real needs... and while all the other teams chase the marquee free agents, we stand on the side watching idly and picking for scraps while our star player gets demotivated/disgusted at the lack of ambition displayed.

Who are we going to acquire now that could make a difference ? Asik would be cool, but is that enough to make a difference ? Should we not be thinking about upgrading our starting SG first ? By acquiring all these fillers, we are minimizing the chances of making a splash acquisition this summer. Robinson is a great prospect, but why are we still acquiring prospects ? there are about 6-7 prospects on this team now (Leonard, Robinson, Barton, Crabbe, Whithey, McCollum, Claver ) and that makes about half of the team that lacks experience and will probably not get the minutes they need quick enough to convince LMA to stay.

If im Aldridge, all the signs are pointing towards the fact that the organization is preparing for a rebuild... no wonder he's been voicing his desire to leave.
