this is my opinion, on this years draft
We get the first pick (Stern hooks us up after last year)
We pick... Mclemore assuming things staying the same
If we don't have first pick and hes not there we take... Shabazz
With the 14th pick (from blazers) we.... trade down
to 17-18-19 not sure what exactly we get but maybe a second rounder from said team
with 18th pick we take.... Kelly Olynyk
Best I can tell, that gives us a nice scoring boost from both inside and out. I like Olynyk so far. But it doesn't address our rebounding concerns.
So you clearly like McLemore more than Shabazz?? I thought Shabazz was still considered the best.
Doesn't McLemore have some question marks about his size/length?? (6'4.5" in shoes, 6'7" wingspan. Not on the high end for a SG)

How about trade the 14 pick down for the 18-19 pick and a current rotation player?? (someone who can rebound??)
I just don't see a lot of value in a 2nd round pick.
About trading the picks: lets assume Stern screws the Cats again, and we get 3/4, and lets assume the Suns get 4/5, and lets assume they get their pick from the Lakers at 11/12 and we get POR at 13/14.... alot of assuming i know Would it makes sense to trade down the lottery pick (with the Suns) in order to trade up the mid 1st rounder?

I just want to make sure that when we draft, we actually look for a QUALITY big man. I would rather us use 1st pick on Noel or Len and then trade down and draft CJ Leslie.
I see where your coming from but in MY opinion i dont see a quality big in this draft with the exception of Len. this is top 10 of course. i dont see a big worth a top 7 pick and will either be 1-2-3 at worst
Watching this game against the Bulls, we have to find a way to get Noel and Bennett.
