For each of the following picks, explain what type of players we should try to get that are reasonable FA signings, trades, or lower draft picks. I'm looking for short term complimentary players, not the stars we will likely need to draft to make a run at at title.
Picks: Robinson, Beal, MKG, Barnes, Drummond
Robinson: We'll need one more rugged big with some height, the type of guy who can get some rebounds and effectively use his six fouls. Doesn't need to be an offensive force, but has to be able to run a bit. (As in, no Diop.) Also, need another wing scorer with an outside shot. Swingman is fine. Just needs to be good enough to keep defenses from collapsing in the center. Lastly, need another point guard who is more of a distributor that could occasionally play with Kemba, preferably someone who could provide a little veteran leadership while being comfortable as a bench player.
Obviously, some of these types will be the same no matter who we draft.
SOMEONE will pay for THIS!
Whether we draft Barnes or Robinson, I want a pure pass-first point guard. I love Kemba, but offenses are ran and plays are made when you've got guys like Jason Kidd, Steve Nash, or Rajon Rondo (contrasting styles but i'd consider them all pass-first) running point. This is why I wanted Scott Machado. This kid would be a steal if you are looking for this type of guy. It makes it easier to play when you've got guys finding the open man at the right time and making the easy play all the time. We need this type of guy. As much as I HATE looking into future drafts, I say we really invest in drafting a pure point instead of trying to get an current one. That is my opinion though.
Regardless of the pick, we need a tall, passing point guard, a backup defensive big, and a wing with some range.

It would be so awesome to bring Jamison in for cheap.

If we're interested in going for a veteran that could play some minutes and be a great mentor I'd go Grant Hill. It's possible we could land him. He's also still contributing better than one would expect given his age.
