we obviously need post players, rebounders especially.

But if we think Shabazz is the bpa, do we take him?

It's been said you should always take bpa in the nba.

What say you?


btw, we are projected to get Portland's first rounder this year....this mock has us taking Gobert,
a seven footer out of France.

I believe that Cho has been quoted as saying something to the effect of "you draft talent, trade for need". So with that in mind I would fully expect to draft Shabazz in that scenario. Which I would definitely approve of.

WE ABSOLUTELY TAKE Shabazz or Mclemore if they are there. Zeller is way overrated and won't make much of a difference for us. We desperately need more scorers. I would love to see one of those two running with Kemba and MKG. They need a scorer like that on the court with them. We will find our post players some other time.

and OMG if we got Shabazz and Gobert that would be the greatest draft ever. Gobert is INSANELY good. Go learn about him if you guys don't know

Just like the Panthers will find a WR to replace Smith some other time..?

just saying..

I know we need scoring in the worst way, but we need someone down-low even worse

I dont see Zeller going before Noel and I dont see Mclemore going before Shabazz. If this was the scenario though I would draft Shabazz but I wouldnt have a problem if the team traded back to 4/5 range for one of Bennett/ Noel/ Zeller

Bennett, Shabazz, or McLemore if we get a top 3 pick.
