looks interesting and projected late first. just turned 19 a few months ago and already leading the russian league in scoring at 19ppg playing both wing positions ..god knows this team needs more russian flavour and need a lefty after manna, randy and supercool were here, though wolves lefty's isn't exactly a cool club. acquire mozgov and we'll be set. draft and stash and see what we have in a few years.

This draft isn't as bad as the "experts" make it sound. There are going to be several good PGs coming out. Some nice 7 footers as well.

Those PGs are mediocre and all have their flaws, like a poor man's version of the 2009 class. But I agree about the 7'-ers, bunch of interesting prospects.

I just want to get this straight: We have Memphis 1st (lotto-protected) this year in all likelihood. There is also an increasing likelihood that we will retain our own (top-13 protected to Phoenix) - However, the protection on our pick to Phoenix indicates that the Suns will receive the less favorable pick if we should have Memphis' pick as well as our own.

So there really is no point in holding on to the Memphis pick, in fact it behooves us to trade it, does it not?

If we trade the MEM pick and finish in the lotto, we will still owe Phoenix a pick next year. So no, it would not be smart to trade it. Late 20s pick in a weak draft is what Phoenix will get, rather than likely a mid to late teens pick in a stronger 2014 draft

they'll get the Memphis pick and Taylor/Kahn will be happy to oblige. Keeping one 1st rounder has been hard enough, having to keep two would make their head explode.

His creating moves were Ben Gordon esque without the anklebreaking explosiveness. Has same stepback jumper as well but can still get inside with crafty moves. I'd say overall watching more of him, a young Andre Miller or Jameer Nelson.

Let's just tank the season and draft Shabazz Muhammed or package our pick with D-Will for an up and coming SG.

Package D.Will and our draft pick for McLemore or Shabazz would be fine with me.

If we have to S&T Pek this off-season, I'd try to get a SG in the process (if we can't get McLemore or Shabazz M.).

With that being said, if we continue to lose this season and pick (8-10) I'd seriously consider bringing in Willie Cauley-Stein. 7 footer, long, athletic, can rebound, block, and he can finish inside.

I don't think we can play worse than the Kings, Wizards, Raps, Cavs, etc. :sigh: He's a beast though.

As long as Adelman's the coach here, I wouldn't expect Williams to be in front of Cunningham on the depth chart. And if Williams is behind Love and Cunningham, then I wouldn't expect him to be on the team at the start of next season.
