  • Maaan i really don't know what i want the Kings to do in this draft. There really isn't anyone that stands out to me that fills a need. Brandon Knight could be nice, we could have the luxury of bringing him along slowly and eventually pushing Beno out the door. This would give us a great looking 3 headed monster in the backcourt for years to come but i'm not sure if it's our most pressing issue. I also kind of like the idea of bringing in Kanter because if (big if) he and Demarcus pan out that would just be a ridiculous looking frontcourt. If we get either of these two guys, and manage to somehow get Tayshaun Prince i really like the look of that roster moving forward.

    But good god i would do things to see Kyrie Irving in a Kings uni.

    • I think bringing in Kanter would be trouble for Cousins. Kanter just works so much harder I can see Cousins creating self alienation. Also in the long term neither is great away from the basket so they would kind of be clogging the lane which is fine for a team like the Lakers with Kobe, but for the Kings and Tyreke in particular you don't want to clog the lane. IMO you are right on Knight as you need a PG who can shoot and play off ball alongside Reke and Thornton, also SF could be looked at as Donte Greene will never develop. Marcus Morris is interesting because he can play the 3 or 4, same goes for Terrence Jones. Kawhi Leonard would be a nice pick up in a trade down.

      • My Dream Scernio for the Cavs is

        Harrison Barnes or Derrick Williams with the 1st pick
        Kemba Walker or Brandon Knight with 2nd Top 10 Pick

        • So UGA lost both Leslie and Thompkins to the Draft. I'm thinking we might be losing Mark Fox next year. Improving the program here and putting players in the NBA looks awfully good on his resume. Other colleges are going to be really interested if UGA plays well next year.

            Yeah i see what you're saying with Kanter, to be honest i haven't thought about him much till the last few days so i don't know huge amounts about him. Yeah SF is an obvious need, its just i don't really feel any of the guys available to us in that 4-9 range really provide us value with what we're trying to do. I think we're pretty much locked into our core of Cousins, Evans, Thornton (we better re-sign him) and i think that gives us enough scorers and creators if everything works out. What i want from the SF spot is a lockdown defender who will run the break and hit the 3 with some consistency. So i'd say with my limited knowledge that would knock out Jones and Morris, and with a quick look at Leonard probably him too. So really what i'm saying is if we can't get Knight, any ideas for that 3 spot?

            • Don't forget with the lottery you could potentially be picking in the 4-7 range, but say you were to have the #3 pick you would be guaranteed a stud regardless. Derrick Williams, Kyrie, and Brandon Knight right there are 3 players the Kings would take. If youo are in that 4-7 range and miss out on Knight, Kemba would probably be the next pick.

                I really don't want a 5'10 shooting guard but.

                  Kemba's PG skills are better than Knight's right now.

                  • Mostly because he has PG skills at all. Knight is so overrated.

                    • eh, i guess the size thing scares me, with Tyreke showing he can be a very good defender in this league and Thornton showing some effort on that end of the floor as well i feel if we slot Kemba Walker in it will kind of take away from one of our potential strengths. And anyway, with our 3 guard rotation pretty set for at least next year it's not like Knight has to come in straight away and get major minutes, couple this with the fact he's only 18 (Kemba being what? 20?) i think there is definitely a chance to bring him in and let him improve slowly.

                        Knight definitely has some PG skills he's just not good at penetrating and dishing, he'll be great with pick and roll's though. I look at him like a young Chauncey Billups, he already has that clutch gene.

                        • I'm not really sure what PHX will look to do in the draft we have so many wings who can become FA that may be the option, but a PF who can post people up is at the top of Gentry's wishlist

                          Nash - Brooks - Dowdell
                          Dudley - Childress - Carter
                          Hill - Pietrus
                          Frye - Warrick
                          Gortat - Fropez

                          potential FA in Bold

                            If he is 21-22 is he still a 1st rounder?
                            He should definitely get into the lottery based on his defense alone. Defense is something that almost always translates into the NBA, and in a weak draft like this, teams would rather have him than a boom or bust player. Good size, plays hard, and blocks shots on command. Now would you rather have him or Jimmer?

                            I don't know why you have such a disdain for Vesely. You said it was because he reminds you of every other soft international player out there, but he is not soft at all.

                            Kemba and Knight aren't going to be there by the time the Cavs second 1st rounder comes up. No one is locked in yet for the 2nd Cavs pick yet. The 1st will be either Williams or Irving.

                            • Teams are just amazed by Vesely's length and athleticism, if he were an American player he wouldnt' have this hype. The fact is that he has an underdeveloped post game, isn't overly skilled on the perimeter for a Euro, and needs to gain weight. I don't see how he's any different from a Hakeem Warrick. I'll take Donatas over him any day. Donatas not only is taller but he has a sleak perimter game/handle, and already has more develop post moves. I honestly can't see how Vesely is a better prospect than Yi. Yi was taller, stronger, and more skilled and we have seen how mediocre he has been in the NBA.

                                Gotta take the defense here. I'll take a 10-15-3, 3 being blocks, every night from my young power forward over the jump shooter that couldn't guard Courtney Vandersloot.

                                I think Jimmer may stick, but he has to find the right situation. He needs to be JJ Redick.

                                I can see the obviously comparision between Biyombo and Ibaka. I want the next Ibaka, not the next Redick.
