    We should trade a pick for a young big that is starting to come on (DMC is not an option) just so we can retain bird rights... the picks are too much of a crap shoot... why not snag someone that has been developed on someone elses nickel.

    but who? and if they were good, why would they give him up for another pick?

    I kinda like the kid but if he comes here its over. He'll be a failure...he doesn't have Darko's youth.

    This is where creative accounting comes in... first you need to deal with a tight fisted owner that will be in the tax if they re-sign their young big... give them an expiring (D.D.) and a pick
    Or you can deal with a team that has excessive bigs:
    Boston- Perkins
    Wizards- Haywood
    Dallas- Diop
    S.A.- Butler, Elson
    Seattle- Wilcox, Petro
    Warriors- Biedrins, O'Bryant
    Lakers- Kwame

    Elson in interesting. A type of guy that Dumars likes....big, agile big guy.

    Kwame...hell no...can we get Bynum instead?

    I liked Perkins but I'm losing it for him.

    I'm down with grooming Amir. He should be the answer.

    I've watched the last few Sonics games, and my impression so far is that Petro doesn't know how to play, and Wilcox is a beast. This guy looks like a bargain for the 25 or 30 mill the Sonics are paying him.

    I like Bynum's upside better also... but the Lakers are real high on him...
    As for Kwame I think it's a good idea to see where he is today vs. his past... he had a solid year... his problems was nervous energy.... he was starting to let the game come to him and it showed.... he should be a solid pro from this point.

    Kwame is someone you sign for the MLE not trade draft picks for...I agree that bynum ain't going anywhere unless we pay mad dollars but like we never do that.

    I guess I should have asked: "Does this guy really want to play for us?"

    Here's a little quote from his handlers:

    I think our window is closing so our run for the title reasoning will have to be scrutinized and a more developmental approach should be considered.

    He was saying guaranteed all-star b/c he would get a billion votes from China every year, not b/c of his stats...

    Have to toot my horn on this one. This was the cat I told everybody about long before he got drafted (thanx to my peeps in NJ).

    This may be a good year to nab a rook or two. By all accounts this is a deep draft. For grins, I'll throw out two names. Josh McRoberts and Hasheem Thabeet. Thats assuming we don't need a PG.

    I don't think we'll draft a PG unless its a no brainers type.

    The chance of getting a quality PG later in the draft are much better than getting solid big (of course there are exceptions)... If we get a chance to draft 6 -15 it should be for a center (yes Darko could end up better than what we end up with)... I'd like to see a 7'er that you can dump it down to and he knows what to do with it... he should also mobile on D.

    If we get a late first rounder (maybe mid to late) the guy I want us looking at is Acie Law. He's the point guard for Texas A&M. His shooting numbers were down last year, but he's a great leader, quick with the ball end to end, and an excellent penetrator.

    No way knowing what we'll do this early, of course, and if I had to bet I would say we won't have both picks come draft time (either ours or Orlando's will be traded).
