The same guy whose team was borderline to miss the playoffs in February so he had to fire his coach?

The guy who had so little confidence in his team that when he made the deal to get Carter, he traded JJ and included a 1st Round Pick in the deal - but insisted that it be Lottery Protected in case they missed the playoffs?
LA was out of the playoffs in the west when they traded for Carter.
