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
With Cho in the mix now a bundling package doesn't seem like his style. Regardless I see us nabbing all of our picks in the pre set places and building a great crew of depth and making some plunges in to FA next year.
thanks for the link though - very interesting. I would for one put all my eggs in the CP3 basket!!

In all fairness though, most people didn't see much of a difference between Ray and the other two in that draft so I can understand their thinking. Can't help some guys exceeding their expectations and other not meeting them.
Thing with me is I try and learn from my mistakes. Very seldom does a quantity win out when you're making that kind of decision.

Every name listed in there other than Milsap has been linked to us before in trades over the last year... Who wants to bet we make a deal on draft night? I'm leaning towards yes...vlad (pdx)
Do you see any draft night trades happening??
I think there will be a bunch. Teams are telling me that trade talk really started picking up on Tuesday. Cavs are looking at potential deals using the No. 4 pick and either Baron Davis or Ramon Sessions. Jazz looking for deals. Would be open to discussing Paul Milsap or Devin Harris. Wizards looking to add talent around John Wall. Pistons are being active. Rockets have been very aggressive (as they often are). Bucks have made draft day trades past 2 years and are being aggressive again.
Oh, and I'm also wondering after reading this if the Cavs were the team offering us the "top 5 pick" that we turned down?
I bet we were offered the #4 and Baron Davis for #9/19 and Diaw.
I would have to think really hard about dealing 9 for Millsap or Harris tho. Especially Millsap if we could dump Diaw.
Yeah, when I saw Harris and Milsap being mentioned it definitely intrigued me to the possibilities there... I love Milsap's game, but then I thought of TT, DJ White, Diaw, etc. and unless we move one of our bigs who already gets a good chunk of minutes, I don't see it happening. But, those two could defnitely help us out either way.
I don't think anyone thought Felton was as good as CP, certainly not anyone who had regularly watched them play in college. But, for a young franchise, taking two really good young players as Felton and May were, probably did make more sense than consolidating them into one guy. May was the best PF in college that year and Felton projected to be, and is a solid starting pg. Can't fault the logic at the time, but it obviously hurts now that we know how it played out. I don't think there's much of a lesson to be learned here though. There's no CP caliber player at #4 this year. I don't think there's any scenario where Irving, Williams and Kanter don't go in the top 3. If one of them slides unexpectedly on draft night, maybe we get on the phone and try to deal, but otherwise it doesn't seem worth it to trade up.
