If Not Rivers, Who . . .

. . . would you have drafted in the 10th spot. No doubt, Austin is having a miserable freshman season. But looking at the 2012 draft from pick 11 down, who would you have taken instead? Or would you have traded the pick?

Hindsight, of course, is 20/20. But I'm curious.

I really liked Terrence Ross.

Zeller


He seems to be doing well, but wouldn't that create a logjam for us? Or I suppose Lopez would be expendable?

Man Drummond would have been kick arse

ETA: but to answer OP, there really isn't a lot of good choices that went after him.

Terrence Ross looks like he could be really good down the line, but we weren't going to draft a pure SG when we had EG.

Did we get Lopez after the draft? He wasn't expected to be any good Anyway based on his last year in phoenix

He went 8 I think, and Drummond was gone too.

Zeller or Lamb is the only answer here and... why? Talk about a log jam.

Harkless would have been nice but too high at 10.

Harrison Barnes was at 7. It would've been awesome if the Wolves didn't finally not suck and we could've been low enough to grab him or Lillard. frick you, Kevin Love.

really not much behind rivers that is impressive, but just for kicks...

no rivers means jack will most likely still be on the team and lopez will not.

so trade down to get ezeli.

also wouldn't have minded a flyer on perry jones at that point in round 1 or buying an early round 2 pick for jeffrey taylor or doron lamb. but like i said, these guys haven't been doing much of anything either.

John Henson has looked pretty impressive the times I watched him. He and Davis on the floor would have been some crazy length, but not much beef.

Zeller, Ross, Lamb, Henson, pay Deetriot under the table to let Drummond slip down to us.

I still feel like Marshall is going to be a solid PG in the league, even if he isn't getting any minutes this year.

I've said from the day we drafted him, Rivers has bust written all over him.

I get shunned every time I say this on the board, but half a season in I have seen basically nothing to prove me wrong.

We signed Lopez after the draft. We probably would've never signed him if we drafted Zeller. Which means we'd probably still have Jack

haven't seen much of Henson, but his advanced #s are impressive.

sullinger is another guy who has looked like a player too.

like you said with henson though, not sure how well he works with davis
