Most mocks have us taking yet another guard as bigs seem to be in short supply…I’m starting to think we should use our pick in a trade for somebody

I'm open to trading the pick. But my guess is that we'd rather use FA or Trade to address the starting center spot anyways. 

If we keep the pick, there could be some intriguing wing options there to replace Monk in the event we don't re-sign him. Kispert is a guy I really like among others.

If we make a play for Myles Turner then the 1st round pick is definitely part of that package. With nothing to back me up, I feel like he is the most likely target followed by Allen and then Drummond. 

That would be the right move. You can still load up on center in the second and thirds because there's a ton of centers to choose from throughout the 2nd,3rd,etc in this draft. 

There is a lot of potential and depth at C in this year.

We don’t need to pay monk anything big, that’s for sure

and we always need shooters

Garza, I think, has more of that killer instinct than Kaminski. Plus Garza is already heavier than Frank. Garza is a big heavy dude 265lbs. He'd automatically push Frank around.

When I look at the center position, you've got to be a heavyweight.

Will he be there at 11?

Will WE be there at 11?! (High trade possibility) Garza is a late first rounder, probably a second round guy this year. Being that most of the top echelon will be guards and forwards this year, bigs are going be a bargain. 

Not saying it's going to be easy to get Garza or Cockburn, somebody will target both, but as of now both are project to be AFTER the first round, plus there are other bigs "rated" higher than them.

Would I take Garza at 11? Me, yeah, but I'm that guy who was telling everyone Kyle Trask was worth a second before the draft and Tampa drafted him in the second.

I'm not a Kai fan yet so if I NEED a center I'd draft a couple like when Gettleman drafted Star and KK.

Both Garza AND Cockburn were big-time scoring 5's in the Big10, Garza 6'11"265lbs, Cockburn 7' 285lbs. Me? I've locked in and I'd try like heck to get both.

Mitch said "several" centers. Not me. Neither one of those guys is 7'285lbs. They need bigger bodies.

They've got Kofi at 4, Garza at 8. I really think Kofi will rise. 

Is Center more of a need than BPA? If so you've got to pick the best one there at 11.

Not an impressive list unless the Europeans are good

im intrigued by sharpe…he is big and clumsy but what a talent…Roy said he could be the best rebounder he ever had (of course after playing a few years)
