+ Signing Pek (although, to be fair, he was drafted by McHale)
+ Drafting Flynn (6th overall) seconds after drafting Rubio

+ 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.
