True, but if we get our PG through a trade, we have cap space to throw a boatload at a Batum (for example) in free agency.

There are a shit load of possibilities here for BC imo. And I think he's looking at everything.

If Drummond drops down to 8, we should keep him. Why compete now, can we really compete with the Heat or OKC if we get Lowry or Igoudala or Deng. Draft the best player for the future, instead of the player who will make the most immediate impact. Jonas will push him everyday and Casey will point him in the right direction.

Bill Ingram: It now sounds like Houston's trade partner for the #16 and Dalembert could be Sacramento - details coming in today's NBA@2. 4 minutes ago

Hmmmm, Daly + #16 to Sacramento.

Lowry, #14 to US??

Wishful thinking?

I was kidding but...

Quote:
the rockets are attempting to make a trade offer for dwight howard, according to espn. Espn broke news late on sunday night that the team was having discussions about moving up in the draft with sacramento and toronto, and houston may be prepared to part with kyle lowry in order to get it done. One gm believes the "real aim" of gm daryl morey is to acquire two top-10 selections and then flip both as part of a "considerable trade offer" for howard. The team had interest in acquiring howard previously, and it will be interesting to see just how active morey is on draft day

Problem is you have no clue at all about what would happen. To me that type of move is a no brainer. There just isn't much difference in theory between the players that will available @ #8, and what will be available @ #14 or #16.
You're talking about guards, but the question is: what do we need more between a SF and a G? And, among them, who will be available at 14/16 really worthy for a team like our?

I can't see us going after Nash if we're getting Lowry. It would make little sense.

Or maybe package Jose, Davis #37, 2013 1st round pick for a SF.

You have a hard on for a team that will be a #7 seed? I see it takes little to excite you

I don't know, they need both picks. We need a PG, Sac doesn't and might accept another deal involving another player + the higher pick. We don't get Lowry, no deal.

And I see you have a crystal ball? Outside of Miami, CHI, Indiana we'd be in the 4-6 mix imo. Sorry, that team would be exciting to watch and under this coach we would likely be higher than #7.
