A lot depends on how quickly Gores wants to move after the CBA contract. If he moves quickly than a wholesale move before the start of the season seems likely. Administrative-wise, there is no doubt that Q is gone. Gores might take three approaches toward JD: Give due diligence to his reputation and myth status in Detroit. This means keeping him for one more year as a buffer for traditionalism, especially if he goes the wholesale player move. Using the tacit talent JD has for player abilities. This will be off-set from Gores management team and it is exactly what JD needs to balance his lack of communication and petulance for isolated decision making. Gores will start out big. With new coach in hand and a GM that knows the league players, he will spend. Yep, from his end, it is all money. There is no reason that with additional players and keeping Stuckey and Monroe, you are at least approach .500 next year. The selective talent is within reach and out there.
