2011 NBA Mock Draft - 5.0 - Rotoworld.com These people get paid to come up with this?
If you trade Rip and let Stuckey walk, then maybe you need another shooting guard to pair up with Ben Gordon. If you're going with a guard, though, a point guard makes more sense.
Interesting...Stuckey was never mentioned.
Yeah, if JD did that, he should also tender his resignation at the same time.
Actually I am not too thrilled with any of our guards so I might do it. Thing is JD would absolutely have to move at least Rip before the season started this time, no more excuses there.
Bynum/ Stuckey/ Hamilton/ Gordon/ Summers/ Daye/ White + another?
Summers and Daye aren't guards and you know it.
Trade them all for Captain Jack.
Jack Sparrow? I'm down. I'd trade em' all for Captain Ron.
Does anyone seriously want any of those guards? I would keep Daye for his upside.
I'll trade the whole team for Snake Plisskin. Didn't he dominate a hoops game in Escape From LA?
Dallas isn't letting Dirk go.
They surely are not I was totally 1 upped with Plissken. Solid Snake FTW.
It would certainly bring back the No Free Chili approach.
No free chili = Rocket Launcher to the face.......I can digg it.
I think our biggest need is to get a front court player who can put the ball in the hoop or a lockdown defender. I agree with Bill though, if we're gonna draft a guard it better be a PG.
This is the way I see it. We have a Power Forward ( Monroe ) and essentially need everything else. But guys at other positions are still under contract so we have to deal with that. Big men are harder to come by so if one is avail at #8 then you go for it. If not and if there is a really good shooting guard there at #8 then I would do it.
i think the issue is who/which rostered players represent the most likely opportunities for positive trades. moving one or more of our guards probably offer dumars the most flexibility. thats why taking a guard may make sense. i expect a sign-n-trade with tay similiar to what dumars pulled off with grant hill (the polar opposite of lebrons diss-n-dash treatment of cleveland). usually you trade a big for a big.
By the book and very logical. However, we know how that goes. JD is a trade machine and Jordon has now decreased his weakness with the addition of Cho. How will they play to their strengths? I think that a big pick that might determine numerous selections is what the Pistons do with Stuckey. A qualifier for me is determining where his head is at. Does he want out to another team? If another team takes a run at him (and his agent Rose says time for a S/T), then it might seem that is gone next year and this leaves another hole at the 1-2 position. If the latter happens, now you must seriously look at K.Walker, Leonard and Burks to make up for the void. The 1-2 positions are easy and earlier adapters. But now you waste a youthful addition at the 8 position. There goes Biyombo and T. Thompson (or M.Morris, Chris Singleton). This will also play big with who is picked in the second round. In the end for me, if the team is marginally blown up (and it should be) then the 1-2 should be reasonably stable along with Monroe. It depends on JD's big plan (Lord help us) and how his trades work out. JD...just get Franks and be done with it! Hell, my pick is not on anyone's radar.
I think Jerebko is the real deal, too. We have two solid bigs as we move forward. Adding a third big would almost provide the team with an identity, especially if Ben Wallace hangs around for the season as the 4th big.
