    Strongly disagree. For our team I'd rather have somebody with a bit more offense, but dude is a player. He'll be good.

    Hey Peeks, is Dakari the best center yet?

    It could, but he's just not a good shooter yet. He can still improve doe, and he will.

    Two days ago you were 100% sure we were trading the pick for Harrison Barnes.


    Think more, post less.

    No. I thought he would break out, but he hasn't obviously. He's the 3rd best big on UK's team.
    Happy?

    As for Winslow the jazz could do a lot worse. Honestly with okafor out Winslow is going to shine in their offense and will move up in the draft. Hopefully he will push hezonja down. I keep hoping oubre explodes and moves up the board but at times he reminds me of cj miles. Some times He just doesn't care and other times he looks like an all star.

    One thing I really like about Winslow is the ability to attack the rim with either hand. A lot of lefties are left hand dominate.

    You've gotta be flexible in this league and have 'multiple options' as Dennis Lindsey puts it. If GSW hangs up the phone you've gotta have plan B, C, D...


    Plus by the time the draft comes around, if Winslow is able to show us a couple more things (consistent 3pt shooting, offensive versatility), we might be better off just hanging on to the pick.

    Not to mention the jazz might be able to get Barnes with out giving up this pick. Gsw won't be able to keep him unless they are going to be willing to give up tax money. Jazz could get say Winslow and or hezonja and still trade for Barnes in the off season. Give them hood and a future pick. (Maybe theirs back)

    Exum, Burke, Andrew harrison
    Hayward, burks
    Barnes, winslow, ingles (or d. Booker)
    Favors, booker
    Gobert, tomic and or pleiss

    Jazz could easily re-sign Barnes next year.

    Winslow or booker might be better fits with that team

    Even though tonic would be a rookie he doesn't play like one and just might get rookie of the year

    Yup. The only weak link in that lineup then would be the PG position with Exum not yet developing the way we want him to...


    I wonder how long the FO will be patient with him? This draft is pretty even/deep all the way to #10 without a surefire super star at the top, I wonder if a future 1st (and may be Hood), can get us Mudiay or Russell????

    Winslow would offer a defensive specialist to shut down other teams scorers late in the game

    If I draft a wing disruptor, there's four qualities I want him to have.

    1) Energy
    2) Phenomenal footwork and/or terrific length(Because Kevin Durant is potentially in the conferenec for another 10 years and this Wiggins kid might become the wing problem in case Durant goes to the senat)
    3) High IQ/Awareness
    4) Not be a liability offensively, because we already got the one dimensional Gobert and the 1.5 dimensional Favors and the so far 0 dimensional but soon to be 3 dimensional Exum.

    How about our #9 and that OKC protected pick for Russell? Keep Hood. I'd do that deal.

    What if the team picking #3 already has a PG (Minnesota/Orlando), and both Okafor and Towns are off the board? They might not want either Russell or Mudiay, so they're left with the group of: Cauley-Stein, Johnson, Hezonja, Porzingis, Winslow.


    As an example, Minny already has Dieng, so they would probably pass on Cauley-Stein. If they think that there isn't much separating that Johnson/Hezonja/Winslow group talent-wise, and they like the look of Winslow, then I think Minny could look very closely at #3 pick for #9 plus that future OKC pick.


    Larry Sanders has done a similar deal with us before when they moved back to take Dieng and Shabazz - I think it's something they might consider.
