list of potential coaches
New players: We need to draft first I see Kaman, Meeks, Brooks, possibly Nick Young, Gasol Hill all gone!
New Direction: We need to buy Defense
if you want defense you'll need the personnel. You're not Jesus with defensive assistant Tom Thibs isn't going to get better defense out of this team if personnel remains the same at the 4/5 combination.
First thing to do imo.
Start working on your personnel at the draft.
Meeks, Gasol, Kaman, Farmar are not going to be here next year.
Try to trade as much of them as you can at the Draft in S&T deals to see if you can get a late first round or middle 2nd round pick for some.
Draft a defensive presence that fixes the rest of them that is also gonna save you money in the free agent market.
Assume you have defense at the 2/3 covered, draft a 1 that can play defense, score and pass.
Draft a big that can play defense with your late first round, mid 2nd round pick.
After signing the two rookies look at who you haven't sign and traded at the draft and let them go or re-sign them as trade deadline fodder.
Search free agency to fill any holes that are still weak on the team front. Don't overpay.
Front office should spend more money on facility improvements and staffing on the medical front so that Vitti and Seto aren't doing all the work.
Enter next season preparing at worst to miss the playoffs again, at best being a 6-8th seed.
Endure fan complaints about your team having no direction as you enter the 2015 free agency.
Hire Carls, Thibs, or Scott, or a unknown coach that has a philosophy you want to go with or that fits with your plan.
Make a move in 2015 that makes them up everyone complaining now and makes people flood back to the forums like they always believed and talking trash once more while you sit back and shake your head while quoting every nasty thing they said about your organization and doubting your ability to do your job while being arm-char GMs and have an admin sticky it waiting for signatures of apology from the fans that doubted you.
