    "...based on other alternatives" is the key phrase.

    You can't ignore the possibility that we might need to throw two draft picks and FA efforts into this mess.

    Teague is kind of the only option in free agency as far as I'm concerned. Kind of disconcerting that the Jazz had two chances at Dragic (draft [they drafted Tomic one slot before Dragic {which is who I wanted}] and free agency last year) and apparently weren't too interested either time. And they'll have to overpay to have a chance (especially since the Hawks will actually have more cap space than the Jazz).

    Also, even though McW is a sophomore, he is he only a month younger than Senior CJ McCollom.
    Now that's something to keep in mind. RIP Wesley Johnson.

    Although he couldn't hurt things here are the PG position any worse then they already are.
    For too much money he could. I don't see it.

    Bledsoe is not an RFA. Only way to get him is through trade.

    Teague is an RFA. And Atlanta has enormous cap space.

    Haha .. what a stupid pick.

    We're going to have to overpay, just make due, or snag a PG in '14 or '15, I'm afraid. We're discussing who the best PG's in this draft are .. but they're not better than last year's, imo.

    Next year there will be a few ..as well as the next. I know I keep bringing up Rondo, and I realize it's a total pipe dream, but I'm also thinking a very heady floor coach. With Ty at the helm, and a conservative FO, we need a guy to be the absolute leader and floor coach.

    Which is why I wanted Steve Nash so ****ing bad. I can't help but wonder if the Lakers season is ultimately a failure what it would take to take the corpse of Steve Nash off their hands (and yes, I know they're doing better for the moment).

    Agree totally.
    Rondo
    Nash
    Paul

    There aren't many guys like I'm describing, unfortunately. It seems weird there isn't..

    Although this will get buried and forgotten in a hurry, I'll post some future PG's that deserve to be aware of .. at least in the next year or so. I know I get the rap as the guy that follows pubescent teens and not many may want to share in that title .. I understand. Others will obviously emerge, but here are the early leaders as the next great PG's;

    2014
    Andrew Harrison - Going to UK. Best PG prospect since Wall. Big, strong, NBA body right now. True floor general with excellent size at 6'6. No gimmicks, no combo, pure point. Look for him to be the best PG in the nation as a freshman.
    Kasey Hill - Going to Florida. Very dynamic playmaker. Better, by far, than anyone in this year's crop. A bit small, but a little bigger than Trey Burke.

    2015
    Emmanuel Mudiay - Not signed. Incredible PG with good size at a legit 6'4. Look for him to be the best PG in the nation as a freshman.
    Tyus Jones - Not signed. Badass 6'1 PG .. mean as hell.. will be VERY good. (Mudiay is ranked #2 overall in the class and Jones #3)
    Jaquan Lyle - Not signed. True point with good size at 6'4. Fun to watch. I'm catching a few of his games this year and will know better after that..

    That's about it. I mean, there are obviously others .. but just remember, I warned quite heavily about Kabongo when he was being projected top 10 and now look where he's at .. Tony Wroten? I was hating on that guy .. with good reason. Like Gyp said recently, most of these are not my scouting opinions, but the opinions of professionals.

    Look back over the last several years and the next few and you get a great idea why I was pushing the panic button so early and often .. the only PG I pimped big was Kyrie. Now there will be a few more really good ones (franchise) .. but we'll have to be very lucky to draft one.
