Arrow Rivers has a draft promise!



Quote:
One NBA assistant coach said he was surprised Austin Rivers didnít work out at the NBA's predraft combine here Thursday. The East scout expects Rivers to be selected in the Nos. 10-20 range, but an NBA source told Yahoo! Sports that Rivers has a promise late in the draft lottery. The Portland Trail Blazers, Toronto Raptors, Houston Rockets, Cleveland Cavaliers, Phoenix Suns, Washington Wizards and New Orleans Hornets plan to work out Rivers.

Hmm...interesting.

Let's try and narrow down this list, shall we? Phoenix is likely out of the picture with the whole Dion Waiters thing going on. Washington and Cleveland are too high up in the lottery to be taking Rivers. New Orleans has Eric Gordon and are in need of a point guard, not another shooting guard.

Looks like the likely culprits are Portland, Houston, and Toronto.

Draft = 14 picks

14 / 2 = 7

We own the 8th pick

Therefore, the 8th pick could be considered in the "late lottery" since it comes after the midway point of the lottery.

Math.

BC isn't going to make any promises with the 8th and it would be very dumb for a player like rivers or waiter to take such a guarantee in a draft that will be seriously unpredictable. right now, we're in a position to draft either or without worry and we're right there ready to snatch-up a player like beal if and when he falls down the draft. there isn't any guarantees coming from us.

This!

I doubt BC makes a promise, too, when they don't even know if they'll use the pick. He wouldn't wand to handcuff any of the flexibility that he's created.

Really? I actually think it's part of the fun.

And, you DO know that the draft is 17 days away, right?
