I remember Dragic coming through Portland when he was playing for Houston, the season before we drafted Lillard, and he fielded several questions about whether he was the Blazers' PGOTF. Of course, after drafting Lillard, that largely became moot. But, I've been thinking lately whether taking Drummond with the sixth pick and then targeting Dragic in free agency may have been the better path forward. This really came to mind after watching Dragic make our franchise PG look like a fool for 48 minutes the other night.
So, I thought I would put it up to a poll. Would you rather have Lillard or Drummond and Dragic? Remember, that would have freed us up to take someone like Lamb or Henson with the pick we used on Leonard. Or, we could have blown it on Kendall Marshall.
I love Lillard. He has had a tough start to the year, and he really struggles when he takes the ball inside, but I'm very happy he is on our team. Still, I can't help but wonder what we would look like now, with a legit and crafty PG like Dragic, and a true beast in the middle like Drummond. What about you?
