We couldn't have had Beal... Not sure where that is coming from. Who knows what we would have to lose to get him.
We'll see what kind of talent Waiters is. I honestly don't know enough about him to declare this an awful choice. The two guys I really wanted in this draft after Davis were Beal and MKG. Obviously, the opportunity to get one of them just wasn't there.
Barnes has never impressed me.
As for the Zeller trade, I thought it was a good one. Everyone knew full well we weren't bringing 3-4 rookies into camp. Trading 33 and 34 to move up several slots from 24? I can certainly live with that.
Zeller was the ACC Player of the Year and has a nice all-around game.
Don't have a problem at all with this trade. Waiters? We'll see. He better pan out, because Grant's future with the franchise is going to depend on him developing into a No. 2 piece on a good team.
wrong comment to quote....
this was my initial recation when i got home from work.
