    Myck Kabongo with the 13, we need a guard if Lowry doesnt pan out or have Lowry off the bench.



    I'd post Trey Burke but the kid is too sick. hes going top 5 probably 1 or 2 depending on what Cleavland decides to do.

    Tying in Weltman with the #13 pick:

    Rumors began to circulate at last month’s pre-draft camp in Chicago that an NBA team “promised” it would select Schröder if he entered the draft. The team most frequently associated with the “promise” was Boston. The Celtics have the 16th overall pick.

    Yet, even if the Celtics made a guarantee to draft the talented and athletic Schröder, there aren’t any guarantees he’ll even be on the board for them. That’s because several teams drafting in front of Boston have more than a passing interest in the 19-year-old German, including the Milwaukee Bucks, who pick one spot ahead of the Celtics.

    The Bucks have been closely monitoring Schröder’s development for almost a year. Schröder said Bucks general manager John Hammond and Bucks player personnel director Dave Babcock both had seen him play last season in Germany.

    Furthermore, Hammond and Jeff Weltman, the Bucks’ assistant GM, got an up-close-and-personal look at Schröder several weeks ago at the Nike Hoop Summit in Portland, Ore. That’s where Schröder wowed virtually every NBA official in attendance with his myriad talents and athleticism.

    That show-stopping performance prompted Schröder’s draft stock to soar. There is a consensus among NBA officials Schröder will be a fringe lottery selection. Based on his workout schedule, there isn’t any reason to believe otherwise.

    Schröder said he intends to audition for only three more teams before heading back to Germany. Those teams are Boston, Dallas, which has the 13th pick, and Utah, which has the 14th pick.

    Does that mean they're looking at potentially moving Rondo? The implications to Rondo interest me much more.

    Kabongo's stock has dropped to late first round- second round pick. 13 is a reach for him. He won't be a starter ever and there would be much better players(including pg's)available.

    I would not be upset if the Raptors moved into the 20's to take him or Tim Hardaway Jr.

    One thing I noticed is that his stance when going for a jumper is really wide. Don't know how you can get any elevation jumping like that...maybe that's why he doesn't shoot very well from 3.

    I disagree. I think mycks passing game, ball handling, and speed translate better to the pro game then college. his stock is artificially low bass on off court problems that would be ignored if he weren't in college.

    Depending if they pick up picks I hope the Raps look at

    PGs
    Burke
    Schroeder
    Kabongo
    MCW

    Wings
    Bullock
    Franklin

    Bigs
    Dieng
    Leslie

    I like the longer PGs if they keep Lowry, so MCW and Kabongo are high on my list. Bullock is a steady guy with outside shooting and Franklin has great defensive potential. Dieng is that traditional big people want, while CJ Leslie is more of a stretch 4 who can play some 3. A couple years ago he was rated much higher-- I guess that's what you get for becoming educated.

    I think Kabongo is significantly undervalued, but that will change during the draft. Also, for a draft so deep in long term players a lot of teams sound like they want to move their picks. I guess I should have added the Greek kid if the Raps want to stash their pick for a couple years.

    Kabongo is intriguing cause he's got the size and speed to definitely hang with the pros. I think if he learned behind lowry for a year or two he could definitely be a starting point guard. the whole "canadian" thing is a huge plus and really reinforces the "canada's team!" thing

    While spending some time on 103.3’s Fitzsimmons & Durrett show [KESN-FM], the Dallas Mavericks forward discussed the importance of landing one of those two players.

    “If we don’t get the two monsters then we got to find another way,” Nowitzki said, “through sign-and-trades or other free agents that are out there.”

    Nowitzki also made it clear that signing several players to one-year deals, like the Mavericks did last off-season, would not get it done. The 15-year veteran is looking to return to the postseason and adding a star point guard like Paul or a dominant post presence like Howard is probably the best way to get that done.

    OR what about good ol' fashioned trades?

    Would Gay be a welcome addition in Dallas?

    I'd rather see them just sign one of their many free agents. There a few in particular who are interesting...

    Likely first round pick Dario Saric is leaning toward withdrawing from the NBA Draft, according to ESPN.com.

    Sources say that Saric, who plays for the Croatian team Cibona, understands his lofty draft position but wants to stay in Europe one more year to hone his skills. He's enjoying his time in Croatia and feels he's not quite ready for the NBA.

    The Croatian forward is projected to go in the top 25 with CBSSports.com's Gary Parrish having him being taken 19th by the Cavaliers and Matt Moore has him going 22nd to the Nets.

    Saric has been linked to a number of teams with interest in him landing as high as the Pelicans (sixth), Mavericks (11th) and Thunder (12th). Pelicans general manager Dell Demps was reportedly in Croatia to scout Saric last week.

    If Saric does indeed withdraw, it will make an already perceived weak draft even weaker. He's likely a draft and develop player, but certainly a capable, potential lottery talent.

    Saric, 19, has until June 17 to make his final decision.

    He's definitely my favorite big. I think he's a top 3-5 pick tho and I doubt we'd get a pick that high.
