#6 - [b]Len[/b]/Noel/Cauley-Stein/Austin

Kemba, Sessions
[b]McLemore[/b], Gordon
MKG, Taylor
Mullens, Warrack, Adrien
[b]Len[/b], Haywood

Certainly possible but the key is keeping that Portland pick and not giving it up next month at the trade deadline for a short term rental on a veteran like Pau, Kris Humphries, Rudy Gay, etc. who will probably bolt when they are a free agent and also ruin our cap space for at least another season or two.

However the chances of us getting that pick this year are diminishing. It is top 12 protected and Portland is struggling. To make things worse for them starting in mid March, 13 of their final 15 games are against playoff teams (if the playoffs started today) and one of those other two games is against the improving Dallas Mavs. Unless they turn things around I am betting their pick falls into the top 10 so we will have to wait another year.

his absence has been the main reason we have fell so far from where we were at the beginning of the season.. at least with Mullens out there, teams had to guard the post. now they just collapse on our guards because they know we have no post game what-so-ever

I like McLemore, but I'd still rather have Bazz ;)
