The more I look at this draft class the more I want to keep our picks. There may not be a lot of stars in this class, but there seem to be a lot of nba ready players that can contribute right away.
Everybody seems to be advocating a trade of our picks for a ,less than ideal, center and overpaying some free agents to bolster our roster. I don't see that as the best choice though. There are several serviceable centers out there that can fill the void while our team grows and would not break the bank. There are also a lot of prospects in the draft that would fit our sixth man role and would cost us a fraction of the Evans, Reddick, Mayo type signings.
Would the addition of Gortat/evans be significantly better than adding players like Dalembert/ McCullum/ O'neil and a player like trevor Ariza? The point being that keeping our picks allows us to acquire more assets at a cheaper price and being less dependent on those assets individually. We already have a core of guys who can handle the scoring load. We need depth and size. I am all for swinging for the fences, but when the options are between a popping out just shy of the wall and a base hit, I prefer the base hit.
What do you guys think? keep the picks or put our eggs in a broken basket?
