Default If Houston somehow gets #1 pick

Who do we take? Do we take Wall even tho we got Brooks? Or do we get a dominant post presence?

Default Re: If Houston somehow gets #1 pick

I have always been a firm believer in taking the best talent available and not necessarily go for the position needed. with that said I have been hearing nothing but hype about john wall and honestly as much as i see the talent, you can't disregard the fact that all this "hype" happens in fast break full court offense. In the half court offense, there isn't much to talk about. I think if Houston somehow gets number 1 pick, I would take Demarcus Cousins. (with the proper scouting of course, meaning professionals from the houston org believe this guy will be an nba talent).

Really the draft is a hit or miss. as good of a scout you are, you never really know how a player will translate into the nba. and coming from a non professional scout and from what i know, i would take cousins. he's got the height, size, length, and talent to be a solid center in the league.

I think we should go for Wall if we did get the 1st pick, and try to trade him. A lot of teams would be interested, so that might be the smartest move to make, unless our scouts have a good word on Cousins.
