Various Coaches/Players reactions to 6th pick


LINK

Monty:
quote:

On how he felt about falling to the number six pick in the draft…
“I’m a little surprised, but I’m not disappointed by the sixth pick. It’s still a high pick. There are a lot of quality guys that will be available, a lot of rotation guys. We feel good about the pick. It’s only going to add to the young core that we have. I feel like we’ll be able to find a rotation guy that will be on our team for a long time.”

quote:

On what position the team may target in the draft…
“I don’t know that. Certainly, free agency will have a lot to do with that as we start to forecast what’s going to happen. We’ll have to look at the needs with our team, but I don’t want to do that right now. Sometimes when you start talking about what you need, it seems disrespectful to what you have. We’re looking forward to the process of looking at players and getting the sixth pick. That’s a big time pick. We had one and ten last year, so we kind of split the difference. We feel good about that.”

Dell:
quote:

On strategy going in to the draft… “You never know. There are trades, there’s other opportunities that may present themselves. We’re going to look at every angle to give ourselves the best possible chance to make our team better.”

quote:

What the team can do with the sixth pick…
“We think it’s a deep draft and we’ll be able to add a contributor. We think that it could be a different type of guy. It could be a guy that’s ready to play right away or it could be a developmental type guy. Monty (Williams) and I will sit down and evaluate every option that we have.”

On the possibility of a trade…
“We are going to look at every opportunity to make our team a better team. So that is a possibility.”

On the narrow miss of receiving the third selection…
“We needed a five or a four for the last lottery ball and we would have had the third pick in the draft. The last ball was a six, either a four or a five and we would’ve had it.”

In the draft class itself. But there are a lot of things that can happen to add one or two starters. I think the FO may be thinking further outside the box and willing to make bolder moves than the board.

I guess if we can't get Burke maybe Denver would be interested in some trade surrounding Chandler. I doubt Igoudala opts out of his huge salary.

Then I think we need to go after Pekovic and maybe still Webster.

What about this trade?

N.O. Gets:
Wilson Chandler and 27th pick

Denver Gets:
Greivis Vasquez and 6th pick

It may be dumb, but you could start Chandler. I don't think this pick will be that valuable, and I believe most players we may get will be projects. That would also leave the core of our team, and hopefully some cap space to still play with.

Yeah, dumb. You just create another hole on your team by trading away a starter on a great contract and give up a top 10 pick.

Yeah just throwing stuff out there. Thought it was probably dumb. I feel like most players will be end of the bench or take forever to develop that are at 6. We don't need the big guys. Plus I would rather go get Pek with our cap space.
