They're rumbles here on BE about the blazers trading up in the draft to essentially grab a PG prospect. Irving is now out of reach with Cleveland Cavaliers, so everybody has switched their right minds to grabbing Brandon Knight. Here are some basic stats for Brandon:
Brandon is a good scoring prospect, just 18 years old and is committed to the NBA draft. He is a winner, leading his team deep into the NCAA tournament, losing to only the National champs themselves, UConn.
This all being said, we would have to give up players. Utah is high on Knight, so we would likely have to move in front them, the only option then being Minnesota. Here are some trade ideas that i have tried in the trade machine and successfully completed:
1.Wolves get: Rudy, Batum, our 1st
Blazers get: A. Randolph, 2nd pick
2. Wolves get: Rudy, Batum, Miller, Our 1st
Blazers get: Pekovic, Ridnour, 2nd pick
3. (3 way trade)
Blazers get: 2nd pick. Ridnour, Thabeet.
Wolves get: Rudy, Batum, Jordan hill
(Rockets have been rumored to want to move up, they could then use their own pick and ours to move up)
what does everybody think? make the move? or stay put and see if miller can push us through another year...
