With the new speculation that the Kings/Jazz trade could possibly go down I am exstatic! Tyreke Evans is going to be a superstar. He’s a rookie of the year, great scorer, great passer, plays defence. Well when you look at it… who do we get rid of?
We would get rid of CJ, Raja, and the 3rd pick and land Tyreke and the 7th pick. We’d keep the 12th pick.
Who would we draft at 7? Well giving up CJ and Raja we’re giving up wings leaving us with G-Time, Andrei, and Tyreke depending on what Andrei’s situation is. So the need is a wing. My first thought would be the projected 10th pick Alec Burks.
Alec is 6′6″ has a wingspan of 6′10″. Amazing shooter and even better athletic ability. He is same size as CJ so we wouldnt be losing size. And I think he could be the next Danny Granger.
We still have the 12th pick. Some may say we need a big… okay… let’s check our options. All the Euro-Leaguers will be gone by this time leaving us with… Tristan Thompson, Bismack Biyombo, and Kenneth Faried. Throw in Trey Thompkins.
But I still think we’d need a shooter. With the possibilty of that trade, trading probably the 2 most deadly three point shooters on the team and gaining Tyreke who isnt that great of an outside shooter, I think We need one more. I personally do think Jimmer. And don’t cry that I’m just another fan. This makes sence! Imagine Jimmer, Alec, G-Time, Paul, and Memo. Paul will probably one of the best 3 point shooting big man next season. And assuming Memo is healthy… IMAGINE THIS LINE UP! Paul can gaurd Boozer, Memo can gaurd Noah, G-Time could take care of Deng, Jimmer on Ronnie B, and Devin on D-Rose.
Drafting Jimmer does make alot of sence.
In another opinion. I think we should make a different trade. Trade the 3rd pick, money, and CJ/Raja to Indiana, get their pick (15), and Danny Granger (they want to rebuild want him gone) with that fifteenth pick draft Shelvin Mack.
Shelvin Mack is a great penatrater, has great passing ability, and is an amazing shooter. He lead Butler to the championship and in my opinion he’s the most underated player going into this draft. Imagine him playing along with G-Time. It would bring more leadership and winning attitude to this team.
Or we could do nothing and keep our picks (the most likely scenario) and here are a couple things I’ve seen.
3rd Enes Kanter and 12th Jimmer Fredette
3rd Brandon Knight and 12th Jimmer Fredette
3rd Brandon Knight and 12th Jan Vesely
Enes and Jimmer are what I see the most of. And it does make sence. Putting a log jam upfront which isnt bad and Jimmer filling the scoring void.
These are only my opinions, thoughts?
