We don't read your posts unless they have a link from the ESPN trade machine.
I don't think it would seem to be a stretch to think that JJ was an upgrade over Herrman on the defensive end.
I respect you. Like you, I've been pimping this strategy (yesterday in a different thread, prior in others). Unless Joe and his draft team determine that there's a guy at #9 that is a total stud; I'm totally onboard with trading down a little bit and possibly getting an additional pick to go along with a player that we're considering at #9 anyway. I think this at least needs to be investigated further to determine if there is a team out there who wants our pick and has something that we want in return.
...unless we are playing Dallas. (I like your Avatar by the way. I recognize that black market T-Shirt anywhere.)
I do. Herrrrrman locked up Dirk in a 46 pt loss once and did an admirable job against LBJ as well. It may not be much, but it is mores than JJ has done.
He may be caught in SF/PF "tweener" land like Jerebko.
DraftExpress: John Henson Video Scouting Report Henson!
I don't think Jonas has ever stopped Dirk Nowitzki.
I see Ernie beat me to it a few posts back.
How tall is JJ? I was picturing him more of a Kenyon Martin who coud never quite get over the top instead of the KG, Duncan and Sheed's who all topped 6'11. At least this cat has actually played both positions before.
Jonas is listed at 6'10 and Walt Herrrmann was able to perform lockdown defense that one time at only 6'9.
Thanks Slippy. Been meaning to watch that. In other Moultrie news: Chat: Chat with Chad Ford - SportsNation - ESPN
This conspiracy theory might be a conspiracy. Moultrie is projected to go lower than #9. Houston LOVES this Moultrie kid. Houston has TWO 1st round selections. Pistons "threaten" to snag Moultrie Houston swaps #14 and #16 for #9 and a 2nd rounder. Detroit uses #14 and #16 to select what's left of all of the guys that have been discussed (Leonard, Zeller, P. Jones, Sullinger, T. Jones, Teague, Hensen, etc.) - getting TWO of these guys instead of Moultrie.

That's an excellent point - don't forget almost everybody's trying to psych other GM's out at this point.
I'd rather the Pistons try and lure Joe Kleine out of retirement than draft either of the white centers. Sorry if that comes off as racist.
Racist. You won't find any White Centers at the White Castle. Tiny hamburgers. Tiny cheeseburgers. It's outrageous kid.
I will wait until draft night to do that.. actually, I'll wait until it's our time to pick to trade or not. If Drummond is gone, then the big men available will be something like this: John Henson Arnett Moultrie Meyers Leonard Tyler Zeller Perry Jones Fab Melo Jared Sullinger Other players in the 9th to 16th range that are not PF or Centers are: Austin Rivers Jeremy Lamb/Damien Lillard/Dion Waiters (one of the 3) Kendall Marshall Terrence Ross I would trade the 9th and a 2nd round (our last pick) to houston's 14th and 16th picks. And maybe when it's our turn with the 14th pick again I will try to trade that and OUR other 2nd round pick (or maybe future 2nd round pick) for Bostons 21st and 22nd pick. Ending up with: Pick 16th Pick 21st Pick 22nd Unlikely... I know.. But what you guys think?
I think I like having 14, 16 and a 2nd rounder better.
DraftExpress: Zack Rosen I don't know too much about Zack but I like what he said about his Detroit and Lindsey Hunter experiences. Always neat to take a peek behind the curtain.
