    The guy that really intrigues me in this draft is Dario Saric. Read a lot of great things about him.

    Yeah, he has ridiculous upside. I don't think he's quick enough to guard NBA SFs, but I think you develop him as a PF in the NBA. With his mix of size, skill, and versatility, he reminds me a lot of forwards like Kukoc and Garnett.

    Well if he's that good, Why not snatch him with the 13th pick? we need another PF anyway

    Not huge on Dario, seems kind of unathletic. He's talented sure, but i'm wary of slow footed stretch 4s for some reason.

    Who do you give up then? as much as i like Saric i'm not trading Gay or DeRozan for him. Not trading Ross either(ok maybe). I will be shocked if Amir gets moved for the 13th overall pick. Lowry? Mavs need a PG. But who's going to play PG for the Raptors?

    If you really want the pick and you're that high on him, you part with Ross or Amir. THose are the only pieces Dallas is going to want...or maybe Lowry. I somehow doubt they want to absorb DD's contract as they are trying to rebuild on the fly. My guess is they only want to add one major contract this offseason (Howard ideally), and then retain strong value deals and cheap deals. Ross and Amir are both great value.

    I'm not suggesting they should do this, but that's probably what it takes. *I know I wouldn't do this.

    Saric is going to need a team where he is a good fit and/or a coach who knows how to use him and develop him. Otherwise he's going to bust. He's been a big talent for so long, but especially his shooting still isn't good enough to be of value right now because it would mean he needs the ball in his hands to be effective, which kinda sounds like that "ball"-guy without the shooting. Still, lots of upside, but he needs the right surroundings to get groomed.

    Not asking too much means what? Acy + cash?

    If that is true then Ujiri should really think and trade for that pick. Saric, Adetokoubo, Schroeder, Noguiera and heck Muhammad could be available at 13. Lots of good players with high upside.

    No way Dallas not asking for much... They have to find someone who can take Marion's contract... Cuban is genius, he wants to make Mavs tittle contender again.

    Default Blazers Looking To Deal #10?

    Portland isn't currently enamored by any one player and if they were drafting today they'd deal the pick. And to that, I'd encourage the Blazers to take a look in the mirror and acknowledge they're among the thinnest teams in the NBA. If they don't recognize that there's someone in this draft -- yes, even available 10th -- who can help coach Terry Stotts win, then this franchise must be disillusioned.

    Here's hoping the Blazers are bluffing.

    So now that's the Blazers at #10 and the Mavs at #13.

    The big question is what would it take to pry this pick from the Blazers?

    I think the first question is would it make sense for the Raptors to try and get the pick? (ie: is there anybody there that they would want?)

    Yeah, there are couple of players that could interest Ujiri and the Raptors. Mostly PG's like MCW, Larkin, Schroeder. Muhammad could be available at 10. Adetokounbo and Saric are two interesting prospects.

    Saying that, we don't have the asset to trade for Portland's 10th overall pick. And no i'm not trading DeRozan or Ross or Amir for Portland's 10th.

    I think Amir for Portland's 10th pick is probably what they want. Portland love their bigs. But the problem is that Portland would probably call Phoenix for Gortat in exchange for the 10th pick and that is a better trade for Portland.

    Ujirir is a smart guy, he stated he values the draft picks BC assembled. Really looks like we'll be establishing a team of starters all from draft picks imo

    Drafted guard
    Ross
    DeRozan
    vet Big
    JV

    Bench

    Vet Guard
    Drafted SG
    Vet
    Amir
    Vet

    I can see him moving Rudy Gay,Lowry etc to build his own young team.

    Dario Saric changed his mind and will not participate in this years draft, which is probably not the greatest choice, because he probably can't expect to be picked any higher next year.

    That is good news for those hoping Dallas trades their #13.
