    No way can you take that risk. If you put up a 10m offer for West (the same salary he has now) they may just give him to you. Then we have a 32yr PF who doesn't really fit in for the next few years eating up 15% of our budget.

    Indiana will be open to trades for Granger right now. He hasn't played for them and P George is filling his shoes quickly. We won't even have to send much their way, they will take nearly any offer for salary relief.

    At the combine, he measured 6-4.75" (no shoes).

    But did you read the calculation of height? NBA players are measured with shoes whereas the combine is barefoot, so they add an inch and round up or down. = 6-6

    I'm sure Pas knows how NBA players are measured. Its not like Pas is making a case for a player in shoe measurements vs another bare foot.

    It's tough to know where Joe is headed in the draft right now. Usually, its crystal clear a week before the draft as all kinds of information slips out the organization. MCW fits Joe's tendency to find guys too big or too small for their position. It's like taking a flyer on Daye. If he could have put it together, we'd have a really unique talent - a nearly unguardable shooter. unfortunately, the only unique thing about him was how bad he performed. I was rooting for him too. But if you look back at his college days, he had skill but not game. Kendall Marshall was a late lottery pure PG without scoring ability and he's stuggled in the NBA.

    If we had a real wing scoring threat, I'd feel great about MCW.

    I would consider it. They are rolling even without Granger, but they have one weakness. Their bench. Stuckey + lets say Muhammad could be two reliable scoring options from their bench. It would also save them some money. Even more money if they decide to cut Stuckey.

    Besides, who else is offering a top ~#7 draft pick for an expiring deal?

    I think trying to get their 1st rd pick back in the deal would be the dealbreaker. I'd offer our Pick, Stuckey and Jonas in exchange for Granger. That means we essentially acquire Granger without sacrificing cap space. We'd still have $24M to go after a SG and PG.

    A first rounder for Granger, the '14 pick going to the Bobcats, and the Pistons finally put the seal on a half-decade of mediocrity (at best).

    We both know that Stuckey is not a reliable scoring threat from the bench. He stall the offense most of the time and simply isn't a good enough defender. Indiana is defense first, they would never take Shabazz in the draft.

    Firstly, I want to keep the draft pick because it gives us (in all likelihood) a cheap, decent rotation player that we need. I don't think we need to give up the pick, and would at minimum require us to recieve one in return, maybe next years, but we need the picks.

    I would keep our pick, offer BK + Jonas and see where we stand then.

    I feel bad for Drummond (and for all other young players the teams keep sending to this thing). I guess after this experience they can relate to car show models.

    That sucked so bad. We actually fall a spot to the team we won a coin toss over. I hope whoever the Cavs pick is a bust.

    So the 8th place Wizards jumped us into the three spot and we end up 8th. No biggie.
