There is no expectation for next season. Can't determine that at all until we get to the summer and certain things play out (ie. Lowry). Success need not move on a linear trajectory, and making the 1st or 2nd round this year does not mean failing to improve on that next year is a failure. Maybe he doesn't like the price of Lowry, and doesn't like the other options...Then maybe he decides to tank. Maybe he can turn whatever capspace and/or assets we have into an upgrade at a position that would move us a notch higher.
My only expectations at this point are
-Avoid bad contracts that screw flexibility (the BC strategy)
-Don't trade draft picks (mostly just 1st rounders) without getting quality players (somewhere on the star spectrum) back
