DreamDraftScenarios




I was attempting to carry out the draft - acting as GM. What I decided was best for the team in order to procure the best draft scenario was to obtain the #5 pick (which I heard was tenable) without compromising the #6. I feel that this corners the market on the last of five "no risk players" and heads off the remainder of the first round. This move allow me to get a player at the top of my board (I'll explain later) and a risk/reward pick which might pay big dividends down the road.

So I crafted a deal with the Kings to trade my #11, 41, Nolan Smith, and the rights to Victor Claver for their #5.

My draft board top six went: Davis, Robinson, Beal, Kidd-Gilchrist, Barnes and Lillard. I really want, Robinson or MKG, however if Beal or Barnes fall to I grab him. I then look to the two greatest needs on my team (C and PG)

Now as I want the top point guard or pure center (I do not feel Davis plays the 5 in the NBA) on my draft board to go with either TRob, Beal, Barnes or MKG on the wing, I know I can get Lillard at 6. Or if I get the last minute urge to take the athletic yet unproven center Andre Drummond I can take him instead.

With pick #40 My board has developmental center Henry Sims, small school point Scott Machado and long range artist Darius Miller to choose from. I am planning on bringing Joel Freeland over from England after the Olympics to back up Pryzbilla and Aldridge, if I don't grab Drummond).

I now have a roster which has a good mix of veterans and youth, two developmental big men and competition at the 2, and 3 spots for minutes behind Batum and Matthews.

Finally, realizing my need for a quality point to run this team as Lillard develop,and having cap space available I make a strong bid in FA for DWill, Nash, Lowery, Sessions and or re-sign Felton in that order.

What do you think Blazer fans - dillusional? Workable? Why or why not?
