Sure, but we have to think realistically and not a pipe dream.
I don't know, but I'll take my chances with KG, Paul, Avery, and Rondo as a potential 8th seed in the postseason. I remember during the 'Sheed season that most people didn't expect them to get past the first round anyway. And alas, we were at Game 7 of the Finals.
Of course, I'd prefer Danny to make sure he could get this team some additional help -- aka a good big -- via a trade. However, I agree with you lightskinsmurf. If Danny can't find the moves, more drastic options should be explored.
