With the addition of Favors on this team, all of the sudden, we’re young again. 3 rookies on one team is a lot. We have young guys that have potential to be good. Knowing all of this, should we trade some of the picks that we have now in the offseason? If we want to be a contender next year, we can’t have 3 guys who are in their second year, and one or two more rookies.If we even want to smell a championship next year (That is, if there is a next year) we’re going to need need some savvy vets. At least 1. And no, not the Raja Bell or Brevin Knight type of veterans.
The NBA Draft is risky business. It’s very tough to scope out who is going to be good in the league, and who is going to flop. Although I don’t watch college ball as much as I should, I have heard reports that this year’s draft class is not very good at all. I’m not sure how valid those reports are, but it doesn’t seem to me like there is anything spectacular in this years class. You guys can fill me in if I’m wrong. Also, I can’t say I trust the Jazz with draft picks as must as I used to now that Sloan and Johnson are gone.
I think I’d rather see our picks (and god-awful C.J. Miles) get traded for a proven player who is still in his prime or about to enter it. Of course this is easier said than done, but If the front office see’s a possible trade that can benefit the franchise, they should pull the trigger on it and trade those picks. Maybe it’s a little too early to be discussing this, but I don’t see this team going anywhere near past the first round of the playoffs. Time to think about the future!
