    Only way I see us getting that star small forward is via the draft tbh.

    But considering that we're beating OKC right now... we might not be in range for Wiggins, Parker, etc.

    Actually this has been pretty clear to me for a while now. We actually have great two way players at every other position and an excellent secondary scorer in DeRozan.

    Damn things would be looking so awesome going forwards if we just got our hands on Wiggins or Parker

    Wait until this game is actually OVER before you make these threads. We could easily lose by twenty.

    Another reason to go for Durant.

    Doesn't have anything to do with this game or I would've posted it in the game thread.

    Notice I posted a prediction in another thread that we will lose 3 of the next 4 games (2 to OKC and SAS, one of the NY back to back)

    Which is why you don't put all your cards into the draft. That is only one component of building a winning team. Do we have Knicks 2015 first round pick?

    The worse of Denver's or Knicks. So we need both those teams to suck next year to get a high pick. I think a lottery pick is realistic from it, but probably not top 5.

    Just drop Parker/Wiggins on this team and we're good to go.

    Lets just send Lowry and Amir on a 5 month vacation... that should help.

    It's the 2016 pick not 2015.

    Funny how a team that was in the middle of being stripped to tank has gelled and is now beating some formidable opponents. What does Masai do now?

    A difficult but good problem.

    I have been saying it all along, we will be deficient at the 3 spot, for the res of the season. That whole is being filled on draft night. We have a team capable of competing for the playoffs a, which I believe was the goal from the get go. Now we have one or 2 pieces left to move to get a pick. Just one in the lottery no matter where, coupled with a good run at the playoffs this year should yield enough assets to trade for Andrew.

    what's going to be funny is watching people jump on the band wagon when the team starts rolling. There gaining confidence right now, watch out, and I bet they have enough fuel with all the tanking for #1

    Didn't we just trade away a star SF? I highly doubt any SF drafted this year will elevate this team to elite. Is there an instant star SF available in the draft? Someone who can come in right away and take this team over. Someone that will demand the respect of the rest of the guys, someone they will defer to. If so, it looks like we may not be able to get that player with our own draft pick.

    I dare say that no team drafting Wiggins would trade him for anything less than JV, Amir and the Raps pick...and I would be surprised to see any team agree to that trade. So then you have Wiggins and you have gutted your team. that is an open invitation to a Cleveland/Lebron scenario.
