Tony Mitchell. You heard it here first.

In this league if you want to be near the top, you need a SF who can straight ball with the likes of Lebron and Durant. Mitchell is a bad ass and he has the power, frame, athleticism, handle and aggressiveness to match them. I hear the cries for Wiggins in 2014, but that's a really big pipe dream.

Tony Mitchell! Tony Mitchell! Tony Mitchell!

Harkless can give us good depth. Mitchell will be a Super Star.

That's not true at all.

It will come down to BPA...and if two guys are close, then management will take a look at needs.

We have a lot of good young talent right now...it is very raw, but it is still there. The NBA season is very long...we will have a completely different opinion of the players on the roster come March. A lot of them will probably be different as well.

As many have said though...we have no stars. At the end of the day, it will be BPA.

We should go Nerlens Noel. Be pretty bad again next year and get another high draft pick just like the thunder did. And next year if we could somehow get Andrew Wiggins, with him and Noel running this team and some of the right pieces we would be back to competing in no time.

This draft stuff is such a process and crap shoot and there is SO MUCH riding on it. You say BPA and i can understand that but picks like Derrick Williams make me scared of BPA. EVERYONE said that he was the consensus number 2 pick behind Kyrie Irving and was the BPA after Irving. So Minny picked him at 2 even though in my opinion he didn't fit with the team but hey he's the BPA so it doesn't matter.

Now look at him, he still doesn't fit with Minnesota and on top of that he's not playing up to his pick and he was the SECOND OVERALL PICK! I totally understand taking the BPA but it makes me nervous man when i think about picks like Hasheem Thabeet, Derrick Williams and to lesser extent Micheal Beasley. IDK maybe i just like a player with talent that's a better fit instead of just the most Talented player regardless of position IDK maybe i'm wrong.

trade the pick for a lotto pick next year. 2 top 10 picks in a deep draft.

Hmmmmmm, haven't seen anyone suggest this. Actually a very good idea IMO.


I wish we could somehow manage to get Bledsoe from the clips... IMO he is better then any of the top PG prospects for 2013-14. He is super athletic and is ballin this year.

I rather have a wing or a center, so either Muhammad or Noel would be my choice. McAdoo and Mitchell looks pretty impressive, but when has a PF ever lead a team to anything? Don't say Tim Duncan, he's a center. Those four would be my top choices though. I'm not sold on Cody Zeller, because he got t-rex arms, but he would be my 5th choice.

I have heard one of the Harrison twins could be better than Wiggins

I think if you put McGee back then, he would get those blocks just as easily as Russell did. Russell's athleticism was well ahead of the players of his time, and that's about it.

Problem with that is it's hard to project which team will be picking high enough in the draft next year to make it worth us giving up our pick this year. ...and remember, by giving up our high draft pick to them in this draft, it will make them a lot better next season if they have 2 high lottery draft picks in this draft. Cause obviously we wouldn't be making a trade like this with a playoff team.
