Listening to him talk about the draft he seems to reiterate drafting based on need, not BPA. Sadly I think that means no McCollum. He also brings up the potential of trades. He said that we can afford to go with a project player in the draft, possibly meaning they're ok with taking Saric (assuming he remains in the draft) if he wants to stay in Europe another year, and that we'll use FA as a way to get guys who can contribute immediately.

quote: We still don't know where we're gonna go yet because it's that kind of draft where they're talking about a guy could be number 1 or he could be 10, I've never seen a draft like that, where a guy could be the 1st pick or he could the 5th pick. It's either he's gonna be 1 or 2. In this draft guys are all over the place. And so you don't know what's going to happen. Draft night should be pretty interesting. I think teams may trade their picks because they just don't understand this draft the way that we did last year.
