Sure some places list him as a SF but he's a PF and he's only 6'7". Bennett will be a bust IMO.
Zeller makes no sense at all. We just used a lottery pick on Drummond, who is a better player. I like Zeller actually. The only reason I would pick him would be to trade him to a team that really wanted him though. Drummond is the future C here and we still have Kratsov as a backup who has shown quite a bit of promise. I think next year we'll have a solid 4 man rotation of Monroe, Drummond, CV, and Jerebko with some more Kratsov sprinkled in there. Yes I did say CV. I don't think they'll amnesty him and pay him to play for another team. He's actually been pretty decent when he got a chance this year. Having a big that can stretch the floor is pretty important.
I could still see us drafting Shabazz possibly. Then we could go out and try to get someone like Ariza in free agency.
I guess we see porter at a different level. I see him a level or more behind the top group and that it would be a bad move to draft position of need over talent.
I like smart over Mclemore as well but would draft smart as a pg.
I also don't think it would be the worst move to draft a big if that's the best player in the spot no matter how highly you think of the 2 you g ones you have. There is enough time for 3 guys to play 30 mins
