Expectations to make the playoffs and go deeper in the post season next year will be high. But in order to do that, changes have to be made.
I really like this team. They have some nice parts. But they need more. Starting with a good, young point guard. And they need shooters, guys who can knock down the open shot and make 3-pointers. Isn't Jimmer wasting away in Sacramento?
And they need to figure out what to do with their big guys. Al Jefferson was the team's leading scorer, but Derrick Favors needs more playing time. So does Enes Kanter. So who sits or gets traded-Paul Millsap? Jefferson?
I'm glad I don't have to make those decisions. But I hope they don't blow up the team. It just needs some tweaking. Raja Bell won't be back. Maybe CJ MIles will leave. Maybe Josh Howard will be one and done. I hope they keep DeMarre Carroll. I like his hustle. But maybe they need to make a trade to find a couple of key parts, and if so, something will have to be sacraficed. Or someone.
It should be a fun summer.
