Lombardi has a lot on his plate with upcoming RFAs (the UFAs are probably a smaller concern), but my suspicion is that replacing Mitchell is what keeps him awake nights.
Not saying I disagree with you but this is a totally different type of deadline then when we got Carter. If we press to the deadline then we get at most 12 games before the playoffs from our new player. So dealing a blue chip asset for a rental
this season either makes no sense or has to be for the perfect fit that will assure us a great shot at repeating.

A hail mary isn't going to cut it this deadline.
