Ant is very good... so if he pops just a bit more they could be a conference finals team... if you can get to the conference finals then you are a sprained ankle away from a potential title. McDaniels is also quite good and improving. If they got something for KAT and Rudy didn't fall off a cliff they are in pretty good shape in the immediate term.
He’d have to pop far more than a bit more. He’d have to be a top 5-7 player. That speculation could be said for a dozen or more teams.
Right now, they’re not even close to being in this discussion. They lost in the first round this year, Rudy is now 31 years old, and they basically have no leadership. If Ant pops some, maybe they’ll win a playoff round. Maybe not.
