I just did this in an e-mail to the other two yahoos on this site and it seemed like too much work to just lose in the ether.

Good:
+ Drafting and signing Rubio (eventually)
+ Hiring Adelman
+ Signing Ridnour
+ Signing Pek (although, to be fair, he was drafted by McHale)

Bad:
+ Drafting Flynn (6th overall) seconds after drafting Rubio
+ Trading Lawson for a first rounder that became something called Luke Babbitt that became Martell Webster
+ Drafting Wes Johnson (4th overall)
+ Signing Ramon Sessions
+ Trading for and then re-signing Darko
+ F’ing up the two first-rounders they got for trading Al Jefferson (Donatas Motiejunas and Terrence Jones)
+ Waiving Chandler Parsons
+ Trading a second-round pick to POR to draft a guy who was too old to be drafted
+ Not giving Kevin Love a max contract deal

Not bad but not great:
+ Waiving Alonzo Gee
+ Trading Kosta Koufos
+ almost way overpaying for Nic Batum

Everything else is basically neutral.
