what do you guys think of this guy?

Gordon Hayward to say in the NBA Draft - WXIN


at first I didn't like the idea, but the more i thought about it, it would make perfect sense

he is a glue guy, rebounds well, under rated athletic guy, could be that big 3 were missing, and has the ability to win games, he reminds me of a better Jorge Garbajosa

I was thinking big but the guy I like the most will be gone in Udoh, guys that we might get really haven't done much, I don't like drafting guys like that, in Orton and Whiteside or Davis

we'll probably go the route of center in free agency, plus amir johnson needs to be back

we can't go xavier henry because last we already drafted our 2 guard in Demar, hopefully het gets better, plus we have another in sonny so i don't really see the point

the best case scenario is if we get another pick and select a big, in draft that has many

Every year you see these players be nobody's all college season but just kill it in the Tourney and have been a dissapointment in the NBA. I'd say be careful

why not PAUL GEORGE he has better vision, better ball IQ, smoother game, can post up, 2.2 steals so hes quicker and better defense, block shots too, great passer, tougher, younger, off the charts athlete, and 6'8 common now, and very good shooter too!

I wouldn't say he's a nobody, he put up nearly 16/9 all season. Played even better in the tournament. He's been getting the obligatory white comparison in Chase Budinger but he knows the game a lot better than Budinger does and I think he's more athletic besides the vertical.

Still, our draft day strategy with Chris Bosh and without Chris Bosh is drastically different. You get rid of Chris and you draft a big man. Chris stays and you're probably looking at a wing-man or a point guard. Tough to make draft-day predictions without knowing what Chris Bosh is saying this summer. I'd love to see Ekpe Udoh fall to us.

whiteside is suppose to be a raw product who won't even get on the court next year, where talking about a project player, considering we went through Bargnani as a project and finally seeing his ability and now demar I'm not sure if i can wait for third

but honestly I wouldn't be pissed if we drafted him, he isn't hoffa aruajo


guys i wouldn't be pissed about in order

1. Udoh
2. Hayward
3. henry
4. whiteside
5 bledsoe

Shot 30% from 3. Xavier Henry shot 41%. Xavier Henry IS 6'7 so he can be a SF when Derozan is on and a 2 when Derozan is off.

Xavier Henry - mark my words, quote me, trust meee - will be a 20ppg 4 assist 1 steal guy in 2 years. BETTER than James Harden. Trust me. He's really good.

What makes this kid NBA caliber? Does he have the footspeed to be able to stay on the court? Can he really do anything besides shoot in the NBA? I sawh im a few games in the tourny and nothing about him screams rotation player to me. He'll be lucky if he doesnt end up like Alexander, but even then I'm sure itd be a success for him getting into the nba and getting paid so good for him.
