Your team has not had a 50 wins season since before the 80's. Maybe get a roster good enough first before this not going anywhere thinking? Tanking for lottery picks isn't foolproof. Just look at the Magic and the Suns. While not tanking isn't always the worse thing. Just look at the Pacers or the Rockets before Harden. Bucks tanked for a top 2 pick but their MVP was drafted in the mid teens.We're not going anywhere. We haven't been going anwyhere for a while now. Beal's defense is nothing special and the team's defense as a whole is worst in the league. Wall will come back and no one has any idea what he's gonna look like after the injury but he's making $40+ million a year so he's our guy for the long haul. Him and Beal have been our duo for 7+ years now. They're not just gonna become a beast in the east out of nowhere. I don't enjoy watching a team that gives up 121 points a game. I'm ready for a fresh start and a rebuild.
Beal just need to be competent in defense to build a decent team around him. Beal's shooting makes him a better lead ball handler than Wall in the modern NBA so why not truely build around Beal as the number 1 guy instead? I understand Wall is impossible to move but why not see how the new dynamic work with a new front office in charge?.There is value in punting the tank of the next 2 drafts to see how your new front office build around Beal + Wall before trading Beal away to commit to a tank. Of course, they still need need a bigger wing to defend and create to become a true contender, but let's get past the 2nd round of the playoffs first before a win or bust mentality.
