That would actually be a good team, not just next year but going forward.

Also doesn't Gordon have a player option so we don't actually choose if he is back or not right?

My top draft choice depends on what we do with our current players and in free agency. If we re-sign Hendo then that gives us a decent SG going forwards, so I think taking McLemore would go out of the window and leave us in a prime position to take Noel. And if we don't re-sign Hendo, then I think taking McLemore would be the best option because there are FAs available that could fill the PF and/or C position.

If we end up with a team like that for the start of next season then I would be very happy with that. Kemba's a future star if all goes well. McLemore has the ability to contribute. MKG has a lot of potential. Millsap is an excellent player and can score, and Pekovic has done very well this year with the T-Wolves and would round off an excellent starting line up with five guys that can defend well and score.

He's gone (I don't think he wants to help a team rebuild anymore), especially if Dunlap is the coach.

I have a huge red flag up when it comes to McLemore. He didn't just under contribute in the tourney...he disappeared against Michigan where he should've stepped up and guarded Trey Burke. He wasn't the best player on a mid-major Cinderella, he was the best player on a number 1 seeded team. I understand he has a high ceiling, but one of the things I like about Bazz is he wants to be the last shot. He wants to be the one to take over a game late and I think he has the ability to.

If you want a sure thing in this draft, you take Oladipo. If you are picking a player based in potential, at least make it a position of huge need. Noel might have too much potential to pass up.

Noel is a player I really like, just don't know how comfortable I am adding another big that has no offensive game. I would rather go with a veteran to add some scoring punch.

McLemore is a player that can shoot the ball, he is a solid all around player and has the athleticism to create his own shot. His lack of Killer instinct I am attributing to fitting into a the Kansas System. I know it is a scary risk but I believe he was held back playing team ball rather than being allowed to take over games.

I also like Oladipo and think he is a sure thing in being a very good player, problem is that he doesnt fit at all with the current roster. He cannot shoot from outside and with MKG and Biz already clogging the middle it just wont work....

Anthony Bennett is the other Player I would really consider, he looks like he could be the best player out of everyone. My issue is that he is only 6'8" but he can score inside and out. If he was 2 inches taller without losing athleticism I would be all over him

Regardless whether he wants to rebuild or not his option pays him over 10million(unless i am completely miss remembering his contract) next season. He will not come close to that on the open market. I have a hard time seeing him walk away from that much cash no matter how bad he hates it here. He can always exercise his option and then force the team to buy him out by being a dick.

Sadly, I could see Gordon doing that if Dunalp is still the coach lol.

While I hope he opts out, I wouldn't blame him if he decided to take his option. Like you say he won't get anywhere near 10 million on the free market, so I don't see him turning down that type of money even if it meant wasting a year doing nothing, or once he opts in trying to force the team to buy him out or trade him.

It might be a dick move, but I guess I couldn't blame him if he wanted to take the money he is 'owed' from the contract he signed. Fingers crossed he opts out, or we manage to find a team to take him.
