Wouldn't doubt it. I also heard that the Suns GM won't pass on McLemore at 5. It's all over the place. Lol. All I'm hoping for is Burke to go 2nd and shake things up.
Personally I would prefer Burke over Oladipo.

So if Oladipo Falls to us at 6 and we draft him....what do we do? With Gordon specifically. Trade him for a 3?


It would be hard to trade him for anything. I would be on board with just signing Iggy and working from there I'm not sure we can expect any big moves. And if I were to ship Gordon, I would wait until the deadline. His value is low enough. Maybe it can increase and if we aren't doing well, then we can ship for a piece or two. But, honestly, I think trading Gordon right away isn't plausible. In plus, we need scoring if we draft Oladipo or even McLemore.

Agree to disagree. There are about 7-8 guys if take over Burke. But that is personal opinion.

I think Oladipo can play both the 2 and 3 in small ball lineups. He should be able to get 25-30 minutes per game even if we keep Gordon and added Iguodala or another SF. I really think he's going to develop a solid offensive game and end up being the best player in this draft, so I'd love to get him and let him develop as a role player for a few years behind two legit starters.

re: Pelicans meeting with McLemore and Oladipo
I havent read this whole thread. If Orlando passes on McLemore, what are our chances he falls to us? Do yall see any other teams ahead of us taking him?

McLemore is my favorite player in this draft. The only reason I keep saying I want McCollum is because I thought we had little to no shot at getting McLemore or Oladipo.

I think he has a 90% chance of falling to us if the Magic pass on him.Charlotte will take Noel or Bennett. Phoenix will take Oladipo.

Is that really true? Fletcher trolls Pelicans fans on the Internet for a living. I'm not saying Miles has any better sources than Fletcher, but he doesn't seem like a troll.

He is basically one of Fletcher's sidekicks. He would have no more sources than Fletcher has.

Mclemore's stock apparently is taking a hit as Orlando has locked into Trey Burke according to a league source

Damn that would be amazing if we could get him. I'm guessing Rivers would move to back up PG in that instance.

Trading Gordon and relying on McLemore as a starter will set this organization back another 2 years.

I wouldn't mind having him but you don't trade Gordon as a result. It's hard a frick for a first year SG to succeed right away, especially with the concerns McLemore has. A guy like Beal struggled despite having a "good year" by rookie standards.


That's what I was thinking as well. He may eventually be good enough to replace him but it's a big risk to just expect him to be anything like a 20 PPG scorer.
