Teams from 1-30 always talking about trading up, down or moving their pick for a player. You do realize in the FO everyday GMs, assistants and scouts are throwing names to other teams gauging what their players are worth, what other GMS think their players are worth.
This is no big deal and if you really thought the Warriors were going to take 4 drafted rookies into camp, you are dilussional
please tell when was the last time a team drafted and kept 3 rookies one year and added 4 more the next season? Please tell me. oh and your so called good teams, they also draft players who sit in Europe for about 3 seasons and some dont even come.. Way to use a smart draft pick there..
come on, have a clue about what really goes on in a front office
Thats 11 right there, so even if you did resign the guys we want, plus 4 picks, we would have no use for our MLE and adding any kind of veteran help. Seriously.. I wouldnt be surprised if we walk away with two picks, maybe one gets moved to next year and one is some euro guy and have room to use our MLE for a roster spot
That's !! WITH McGuire...who is a UFA...no Bird Rights so...if he's here,almost half the MLE is gone.
Depends on who we draft. If we go for a lot of frontcourt...we're less apt to re-up McGuire.
We CAN draft a player at 52, not sign him,but retain rights a little while.
Then again...trades are a possibility.
I have no problem with a lot of picks if we pick WELL and we then follow through. 30 + 35 +52 probably cost us more than $15 MILLION...so to then start saying...Oh....changed my mind...want an old 3rd string G.
Anyone think there is ANY way GSW goes from winning under 40% to ..like a 4 seed..boom...right away?
Seriously...not happening. No, you BUILD UP a BASE.
A GREAT way to build up a base is to DRAFT WELL and DEVELOP WELL. Right now, we got enough improvement on EACH of Thompson,Jenkins, Tyler to consider it as turning a profit on each.
Now...if you get FOUR guys,turn a profit on each...then you got WHAT? A good team with some shelf life and all nice on the budget. Then...a year later....you have ASSETS.
Now...just because it's Golden St...don't think just having ASSETS means you gotta go nuts trying to get rid of them. Assets can be good to keep and sometimes you can swap them and come out AHEAD.
The Spurs keep assets and the longer they keep them, the better it seems to work. The Pistons keep Players, but it is because they are NOT assets and short of a hit man,they ain't leaving.
Don't get players who ain't assets ,who you can't get rid of. Don't think that if you ain't payin a guy $15 mill...he's a scrub. Dumbest thing is to pay a guy $15 mill then figure out you could have done better for $5 million. That's like goin to a bar with a dozen buddies, ordering a round of beers for everyone and not only does it taste like the Ohio River...but they charged $25 per glass.
The Draft is the best tool to build a franchise,much as the classic skilsaw is the best tool to build a house. Damn...how is this not easy to see...it's like you get a shovel and a donkey, hike awhile and start diggin up gold nuggets. Only takes a few little nuggets and you made a profit.
Overpaying for over-rated stars? That's like buyin Faux Gold chains on shopping network and not knowin what Faux means. It means you got SCREWED....and not in a good way. In a Cell Block way.
Anyhow....I HOPE the Front office guys are not confused or fickle....or trying to copy the Isaiah knicks.
CENSORED... No comment.
