We're past the halfway point of the 2013-2014 regular season, and the Wolves are in the proverbial "no man's land" of lots of long contracts for older plateauing players, yet the team still isn't good enough to make the playoffs, much less contend for a championship.
From this point, there are three primary paths they could take, each with its associated pros and cons:
2. Hold 'em Hope Pek returns soon, Ricky's shot starts falling, the bench gets better, and the defense improves so that the Wolves can go 23-12 or so and get the 8th spot in the playoffs. Then reevaluate Love, Adelman, and any other choices in the offseason.
3. Fold 'em Quit while you're behind. Offer Love around the league and see what you can get for picks and prospects. Rest Pek as much as possible, let Ricky be Ricky, and ensure that not only will you have your own lottery pick in the draft, but you may have another one or two in the next year or two to help in the inevitable rebuilding process.
