Worse for Portland.


How?

Lillard
McLemore (hypothetical pick)
Batum
Boozer
Asik

Thats anywhere from a 6th to 8th seed in the West.
would depend on their bench, which was complete trash last year.

Aldridge wants to go either to the bulls or Mavs

Also wouldn't mind staying in Portland if they improve

Portland wants 2 first Rounders and at least 1 player

That starting lineup is a downgrade from last year. Switch out Aldridge, Matthews, and Hickson for Boozer, McLemore, and Asik? And that is their roster for the next two years since they would have no shot at cap room by taking on Boozer and Asik (they have used their amnesty).

Would again depend mostly on their bench. Their bench was god awful last season.

The Magic are in serious discussions with the Thunder, Trail Blazers and Timberwolves about the No. 2 pick, according to SheridanHoops.com.
Magic GM Rob Hennigan confirmed Wednesday he was seriously consider three to four offers to the No. 2 pick, but didn't specify the teams. According to the report, the Magic love Victor Oladipo but are talking to teams looking to move up to select Kansas guard Ben McLemore or Kentucky center Nerlens Noel. The report also has Alex Len going No. 1, OKC seriously interested in Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, and C.J. McCollum going No. 7 to Sacramento unless another team jumps in front of them.

Early-Mid 2nd round.

Good size and can go down low or go out like a stretch 4.

Will find a role in the NBA. Think of a lesser athletic version of Ryan Anderson.

I hope the Hawks trade up to about 8-9 to get KCP. I just sincerely hope we don't stay put at 17&18. We could trade up somehow, grab a better player and also save some cap space in the process.

Yea, I think you guys better have your own. Hoping for a Bennent meltdown.

I can get a shot for that. You have to live with Bennent.

I was joking, I think Bennent is the most talented player in the draft. But he doesn't fit in with New Orleans at all, and I'm extremely BPA. From what I've read, nobody wants Bennent over on PT.

Ah okay. I thought I was walking into a "Bennett sucks" discussion. I'm with you in regards to his talent

He's a tweener, and not fast enough to play SF and the Pelicans have no use for another PF. We have much bigger needs
