In an interview with the Columbian Newspaper on Tuesday May 20th following the lottery, Kevin Pritchard gave a hint at what player qualities they were looking for in the offseason. In response to a question about what two areas he would like to address in the offseason and whether it could be addressed in the draft, KP responded:
It could be obtained in the draft, but I’m not so sure that’s the best road to go to get to fill some of those holes. I think we’ve got to get more athletic in the backcourt. WE have to continually look at shooting and make that a priority because of what Oden, LaMarcus and Brandon are gonna bring. I think they’re all three players that have the chance to demand double teams. So shooting’s going to be a priority as well as speed and quickness.
So, KP mentions we need more ATHLETICISM in the backcourt, as well as SHOOTING. And he seems to indicate that this type of player may not be acquired in the draft. So, in light of his comments, what player or players do you see fit that bill, whether through the draft, trade or free agency?
