    A) Technically, we are getting the better pick of Minn and their own pick. 1 knee injury in LA has us wearing Lakers jerseys for 4 games instead of Thunder jerseys.

    B) We can trade the worse of ours and the A) pick.

    C) I don't think Minnesota having been assigned the pick sort of would affect the economics of the trasaction negatively. Needing a pick is just that. In fact, it's the pick they can most positively affect to the tune of 82 games instead of at most 4 directly. Sounds like a plus to ol' 42 if he's selling.

    Seriously, even if they are better than you are expecting. At worst, I'm still expecting a top 10 pick. That in this draft is valuable enough for me.

    I'm lost. I didn't read the whole thread but are you talking about we get the better pick between the Wolves and Clippers? Because Boston owns LA's pick, maybe it's protected from Boston though?

    I'll also say Minny will still be bad, Dell is just trying to be nice.

    Me you and every body else. But that would give us two free agent stars on the market next year... ESPN would go crazy saying how bad they wanted out.

    the topic next year for ESPN is how CP's knee is shot and how the Clippers are in a panic after everyone thought they'd be Finals contenders.

    I gotcha. This pick that we are calling "the Minnesota pick" is actually the better pick of the Clippers and the Minnesota pick. Boston has the right to the worse pick of the two. Everyone assumes that will be the Minnesota pick, and rightly so, but there is a chance . . .

    (I put this in my news pieces . . . tsk, tsk . . . you should be reading those!)

    I'd take your chances with the Minnesota pick, worse case it's a late lottery. This draft is so deep at the top you can get very good young, cheap talent at #10

    Now is not the time to be trading for 'established players.' This team needs to build a base first.
    Exactly, unless we suddenly found ourselves on the fat end of a disgruntled star trade scenario, we need to keep this pick in our pockets.
    With purple and pinstripes from days gone by, I trumpet Hugo's name to the NOLA sky. When rebranders and posers abuse their might, beware my power, TEAL LANTERN'S LIGHT!

    Forever hating the nickname, the logos, and the colors. Still backing the team I've loved since 1994.

    Stolen name. Stolen colors. Stolen identity. Still the same old worthless Slobcats. Suck sludge, Charlotte.

    Yes you listen, but that doesn't mean you deal it.

    Exactly. You can listen to offers without committing.

    yea you have to listen but you dont have to accept
    If Wayne is E.T.-ish tell him phone home

    I'd definitely listen.

    I would also trade the pick for Brooke Lopez or Kevin Love. Such big men are hard to come by in this league. A Gordon / Lopez combo is a great core for us. Plus, we would have our own pick to add that third banana to the mix.

    Lopez doesn't rebound nearly as well as I would like from a center. I would take Kevin Love for the pick and not look back. Gordon/Love would be phenominal. We would need a defensive minded shot blocking center in the middle. Then we would have a beautiful core.

    Brook Lopez sucks. Love is tolerable.

    Emeka Okafor - Joe Smith - Carmelo Anthony - Manu Ginobili - Jason Williams

    Al Jefferson - James Posey - Aaron McKie - Shaun Livingston

    This is an asset, just like any other asset, and you should at least keep an open mind IMO.
    for Rubio AND love: do it now or i kill you, Dell. For Rubio and Derrick Williams do it!
    That pick it's overrated, Adelman is a GREAT coach, they have a lot of young talented players in this 4-game-a-week season

    I'd listen to any offers. The Wolves are going to be better than most think. Like, a pick in the teens. Hope I'm wrong.

  22. #47
    Hmm I wouldn't trade a chance at Anthony Davis or Andre Drummond for anybody in this league. They have more potential than anybody that is still on their rookie cobtract. And I don't want a player that's on a max deal unless he will make us instant contenders.

    Tolerable in the sense of giving up the draft pick. I would do it because he's established. Not a franchise player, but a very good player.

    Lopez isn't neither.
