gay was rated top three for most of the season. pretty sure it was the poor showing from the NCAA tourny that knocked him down.

No one had Sheldon Williams ranked that high outside of the Hawks. Everyone was thinking wtf when it came out that the Hawks promised to take Williams at 5.

Then they draft either Leonard or Biyombo. Ending the night with Hamilton + Biyombo. Still would rather keep the number 5 and take Knight or Walker though.

But, if Knight isn't there @ #5, and they don't want Walker i'd move down if a decent trade is there for us.
so we get the worse pick AND get to take on Rip's bad contract - thought about this deal much?

I think our top target is knight, if he's not available we take leonard OR we move down a few spots and take byiombo if the right deal comes along. I don't think we pick bismarck with the 5th pick, but I have a feeling Colangelo (who likes to gamble) would rather get him instead of leonard, but he's afraid 5th is too much of a reach. Last thing he needs is another Bargnani pick.

I hope we're trading down and getting Thompson

Davis and #5 for S Jax or Diaw and #9

only if we get biyombo in this trade, i would actually love this trade considering hayward is a stud and a great glue guy, i love his abilities,

if both players worked out they would be perfect to put around derozan and bargnani, big that can rebound and shot block, and a 3 that finds the ball and can shoot 3's and defend,

obviously its unlikely a deal like this could happen but it is just interesting thinking about it

why not keeping the 5#, and just do a trade to grab another high pick

charlotte for the 9# :
davis + Calderon + tpe
for
diaw + livingston + 9#

Bucks for the 10#
bargnani
for
maguette + 10#

piston for 8#:
rip + 8#
for
bargnani + bayless + tpe

wash for the 6#
blatche + booker + 6#
for
bargnani + davis + tpe

so we can draft TT or bismack if he is here.

i guess nothing like this will happen, so i think BC will choose between bismack, leonard and maybe knight if he his here.

Wow that first and last trade are massive stinkers. Trade Davis for that pile o shit? Especially that first one. No thanks but I would do the Milwaukee and Detroit trades.

so when a guy that scouts players for a living and thinks a kid's got potential, i wouldn't question it...like it or not, thats the person that can best predict what a player can or cannot do...

and iam gonna stop doubting colangelo because his draft record isnt that shabby...drafting derozan & ed davis, looking back they should have been drafted in the top 5....and drafting bargs, which actually wasnt too bad of a pick given who was projected to go in the top 5....it would be stupid to draft aldridge 1st overall to play backup to a freshly resigned bosh...and i dont really need to say anything about roy....
great points mate. De rozan and davis were both excellent picks, and barg may have pissed off a lot of us (me included!) but he has shown he has the ability of a top 5 pick. I'm really hopeful that one more good pick could really improve us.

if a trade that really improves us happens i'm happy to take a punt with the draft at a slightly lower pick. I'm really keen on knight but he looks like he'll be gone.
