Swapping Picks With Memphis
I don't think I've seen this discussed yet. Memphis needs a big man and non are projected too high for them besides Love but I'd imagine they need a center like DeAndre Jordan who is projected around Portland's pick.
We should package our #13 with one or two 2nd rounders to move WAY up in the draft to grab Bayless. Plus if he's off the board then we will still undoubtedly have a shot at Westbrook, Gallinari, Randolph, and even Gordon.
We could even package the 13 with a player to make room for the rookie
13 + Jack & 2nd Rnd
13 + Jones
13 + Wafer & 2nd Rnd
I'm sure the Grizz would agree to this. They still pick up a very good big man at a cheaper price. Have two first round picks and pick up as many as two more 2nd round picks in a very deep draft. Currently they have zero second round picks.
This is what I would see happen...
Minnesota takes Love, Seattle takes Mayo which leaves Bayless in Portland @ 5 & Bill Walker @ 36
Memphis selects DeAndre Jordan @ 13, JJ Hickson @ 28, Joey Dorsey @ 33 & JR Giddens @ 55
