No Activity-We draft at #9, #19 & #39
We Move Up in the Draft picking sooner than #9
We trade away our top pick for a veteran
We trade away a veteran for additional 2011 picks
We trade away a veteran for additional future picks
We acquire 2 or more Starters on Draft Day
It is weird, since this was "suppose to be a weak draft", that I agree about having another pick...I know some of the teens and 20s teams are looking to sell and I'd love it if we bought another...several players out of this draft I'd like on our team...
This is based off a few current rumors and a few old
Bobcats trade- DJ, Jackson, Tyrus, 19th pick
Bobcats get- Nelson, Anderson, Thompson, Beasley
Bobcats need a shake up...the one thing the Bobcats were lacking last year was a Center...there was plenty of rumors swirling at the deadline last year and one was DJ for Thompson...another rumor last offseason was that they were very interested in Beasley...he could fill in for Jackson...would prefer to keep DJ, but since he is gone, Nelson is a good fit...plus they still would have the 9th pick left over to select somebody like Alec Burks or Klay Thompson
Magic trade- Nelson, JJ, & Anderson
Magic get- Stephen Jackson, Tyrus
Dwight has already said he feels Van Gundy didnt use Arenas right...I think he meant didnt play him enough...could be wrong, but who knows...JJ never commanded double teams, Jackson can...Tyrus and Dwight together would be extremely athletic plus Tyrus can play both PF and C...Otis Smith does one final trade to hope to satisfy Dwight
Kings trade- Thompson
Kings get- DJ
PF-7th pick (Leonard)
Beno just inst cutting it at PG...they need somebody who can run the point and mesh well with Tyreke...DJ can be that guy
Wolves trade- Beasley
Wolves get- JJ & 19th pick
I know a lot of people have been speculating the Wolves will move the 2nd pick for a Vet. Well I think they end up staying pat because they realize how good Williams can be...they do however get a Vet in JJ Redick...I know he's not a star by any means, but he is a player who can knock down shots...plus allows Wes to come off the bench as he develops a little more...After drafting Williams at 2, they now have the 19 & 20th pick in the draft...they can package them to move up or get another vet....or they can trade one for a 2012 first since they currently don't have one...gives them many options
Where Trading Happens As Much As It Does On
I don't see the 'Cats or Magic doing this deal with one-another...
With an eye on drafting Arizona’s Derrick Williams, the Indiana Pacers have discussed a package including center Roy Hibbert(notes) and the 15th pick for
the Minnesota Timberwolves’ second overall pick, league sources said. Nevertheless, the overture hasn’t gained traction in Minnesota. …The Los Angeles Lakers and Sacramento Kings are two teams with interest in prying Raymond Felton(notes) from the Denver Nuggets, league sources said.
The Nuggets believe strongly in Ty Lawson(notes) as their point guard, and
Felton, with a $7.5 million expiring contract, is expendable. …Houston continues to offer the 14th and 23rd picks in the draft to move into the top 10, and could have a willing partner with the Detroit Pistons at No. 8. The Pistons have told teams they won’t trade down until they see who drops to them on draft night, sources said. In what could be an interesting window into the Pistons’ preferences, San Diego State forward Kawhi Leonard worked out for Detroit on Monday, and shortly thereafter cancelled his Wednesday workout with the Milwaukee Bucks, who have the 10th pick. Several executives believe Leonard may have left Auburn Hills with a guarantee. …Perhaps no player is rising faster than Georgia Tech’s Iman Shumpert, who is suddenly on the Phoenix Suns’ short list at No. 13. The Nets have had a strong interest in him, and he could be the player they’re trying to move up from No. 27 to get. …The Suns have been willing to take back a so-so contract for Vince Carter(notes), if it included a first-round pick in the 2012 draft, league sources
said. This hasn’t happened, and as the Arizona Republic’s Paul Coro reported, the Suns will buy out the final $18 million season on Carter’s contract for $4 million. …The Utah Jazz are under immense public pressure to draft Jimmer Fredette at No. 12, but league sources said the front office remains focused on Florida State’s Chris Singleton, perhaps the best pure defender in the draft. Several teams believe Singleton could go at No. 9 to the Charlotte Bobcats. As for the Bobcats, one Eastern Conference executive said: “The whole team is available.” …Providence guard Marshon Brooks is getting a close examination by the New York Knicks at No. 17. His scoring ability continues to impress executives.
So it looks like Leonard may have a promise at 8 and we want Singleton at 9
