Re: Would we trade our pick away for this?
Why don't we want Yao again? Last I checked he's the best C in the league when he's healthy. What are our biggest needs again? Low post scoring and a go-to scorer? Fancy that, I thought Yao would fix that.... If we can get him without giving up a GOOD player from our core, then we should. But I guess that's just me, since I don't how everyone builds up draft picks all the time...
I mean, granted these guys were special in college, but there's no guarantee in the pros, and I'd rather have a sure-fire superstar in Yao then a possible superstar, possible mediocre player in Rose or Beasley. Plus it's not like he's bad.. he's a SUPERSTAR and fills a need perfectly.
