With most of the 'best' Clipper players only in their upper 20's (Kaman, BDavis, and Randolph), our team could get away with trying to win now while starting to rebuild. With any luck, we'll draft some skilled character guys in the coming draft to round out our roster--and waiving/trading players like RICKY DAVIS (specifically) and (maybe) Acker to make room for the incoming rooks. We don't have Steve Novak or Fred Jones signed for next year, but I believe they are good pieces to have coming off the bench so I hope that DTS will give the okay to get them on a good contract. Finally, I hope the Clips review their strength/conditioning program and strength/conditioning coach while heavily recruiting Flip Saunders. I'm not too worried about BDavis getting his act together: I think improved play by the rooks, coupled with people being given a LEGITIMATE chance (by both the owner and the coach/GM) to challenge him for his starting job will motivate him well enough.
