    Oh, don't worry, he is going to slip.

    What would be the difference between Burke and Will Bynum. I did not watch too much Michigan except for in the last few games so maybe its a dumb question but Burke to me just seemed to remind me a lot of Bynum.

    I think that the jump shot puts him in a different league. If Bynum had that, he'd be a starter.

    The only similarity I see is in their height.

    Maybe we can nab Siva with our 37th pick? Seems like that would be a good way to go if we take a SG or SF with our first pick.

    Use him as the, Off The Bench Combo Guard, that he is.

    I think between Singler and Middleton we can make the SF spot work out....since Push probably will come to Shove.

    Assuming Orlando is willing, if Burke slips, would you draft him and then be willing to trade him AND STUCKEY for Afflalo? But they would HAVE to take Stuckey in the deal because you could then go after Andre Igoudala in free agency.
    PG: Knight / Bynum
    SG: Afflalo / Singler / English
    SF: Iggy / Middleton
    PF: Monroe / Jonas / CV
    C: Drummond / TRG
    You would also have enough money to go after Milsap or Reddick in free agency too.

    Yup! If Bynum had a consistent jumper and 3-Ball he'd essentially be unstoppable. Let's also not forget Burke is a better floor general too. On the flip-side, if Burke had Will's Blow-By ability......he'd be the #2 pick in the draft and truly would be CP3-2.0.

    I'd be happy if we did. He's got Teenwolf DNA in his blood. That kid's a competitor. He's 6" short of being a lottery pick.

    You wish. Do not underestimate Bynum. Tough player and needs the right coach in the right way of talking to him. JD needs to keep him.

    Despite his poor shooting, I just noticed that Trey Burke was 3 assists shy of a triple double last game (19 points, 10 rebounds, 7 assists, and 2 steals). Only 9 guys have done it this year, and he could have become the 3rd rook.

    Just noticed something about triple doubles btw. There have been 9 guys to do it this year and here are their ages: 20, 21, 22, 23, 23, 24, 25, 25, and 25. It's a game for young guys I guess. Average age = 23.1.

    Probably a good idea not to have many guys over 30 on the roster.
