    wow guys. calm down - trade the pick? what many of you have talked about tanking for? the only way you could justify trading this pick is by getting multiple first round picks in the future. anything else and you are shooting yourself in the foot.

    I would not trade for Jennings or Eric Gordon using a pick in the 4-9 range. Gordon in his 4 season on NBA has played 78, 62, 56, and 2 games, that is 3 seasons in a row missing significant time, not good fat all. Jennings still has some upside, but how does he fit with a defensive coach and a team with bigs that need touches?
    You forget that Scott skiles is a defencive minded coach and for bigs not getting enough touches im sure Bogut got some but you cant blame him for being a ball hog just look at his team. And for eric gordon Im sure Alex Mckechnie could have a look at him since he is one off the best At what he does

    Trading the pick is a ridiculous idea, this is a loaded draft and I think there are 7-8 players who can be real forces in the years to come. If the raps get 3-5 take MKG, 6-8 BRADLEY BEAL.
    I am starting to get really impatient with Derozan, so having Beal (a shooting guard with size who is a straight shooter and awesome rebounder) could solidify our hole at the 2 spot. That would allow derozan and jj (along with maybe a wing free agent) to share minutes with Beal.

    The only way I trade the pick is if the incoming package includes another lottery pick in this year's draft.

    For example: If we fall in the 5-9 range and the players we covet (Davis, MKG, Beal, Barnes) are off the board, maybe we either trade up to get them with our early 2nd rounder or Ed Davis included, or trade down a few spots to the range of a few other interesting pieces in the later lottery range (Lillard, Marshall, Rivers) and pick-up another asset in the process.
    The only way to bag a classy lady is to give her two tickets to the gun show... and see if she likes the goods.

    Yes - not only is Eric Gordon restricted, he is also the centrepiece of the deal that set Chris Paul out of
