I disagree.I think robinson can potentially be that special.There are no true superstars in their prime who we are gonna be offered for this pick and every other possible "star" that we could get a crack @ for a deal is probably already old,will be too old by the time we can legitimately contend,or is probably about to expire and wouldn't re-sign here with the current team we have.The grass isn't always greener on the other side.If i was cho, i might be looking to trade player's,the 31 pick, or the portland pick,to get other selections or move back in the first round.But there's not a snowball's chance in hell that i wouldn't take robinson @ 2.And we should feel lucky to have the chance to do so!

That is too many rookies, even for a rebuilding team. A coach would never want that many rookies on a team and it would not work well. I know the aim is not to win games, but getting a bunch of rookies is silly. Maybe take fournier with the 22nd and stash him for a year

Let the CHOsen one get to work!
Without completely gutting our team and rebuilding from the ground up (through the draft mainly) we will continue to stay irrelevant.
It is not like we would be starting all rookies.
Id effing kill to get these players. I can see each one with the exception of Ross becoming All Stars. Im not greedy though so id be ecstatic with 3.
But dang I want Tony Wroten too! lol
Get to work Cho!
Another thing you will have to remb is these guys will not be rookies 2 - 4 years down the road when HOPEFULLY we will make a title run!

Still, it is worth considering that you'd have a third of your roster as brand new players. That is a LOT of rookies. You'd want to know what you were getting into before you subjected your other young players to that.
SOMEONE will pay for THIS!
I'm really excited to see Cho flex his magic this offseason. I know last year was his first year with us, and he did snag us two top-10 picks in the draft and they're looking promising. I think he is more comfortable, his blueprint is more evident and his vision is clear. I think we can walk away from this draft with Robinson at 2, move to #10 and get Harkless/Lillard/Ross and then trade again into the late 1st to get Wroten/Q.Miller/J.Taylor. I think three draftees out of the top 31 in this draft will be okay for where our team is. I would heart a line-up going into this season of....
Kemba/Wroten ................ or ................ Kemba/Lillard
Henderson/Reggie ........... or ................. Henderson/Reggie
Ariza/Harkless .............. or ................. Ariza/Q.Miller
Robinson/Tyrus ............... or ................ Robinson/Tyrus
Biyombo/Mullens .............. or ................ Biyombo/Mullens

Espn ran this idea, Im not too keen of it though
3. Minnesota Timberwolves trade F Derrick Williams and the No. 18 pick to the Charlotte Bobcats for the No. 2 pick.
