Wasn't saying Varejao isn't a good player man . Just saying TRADE VALUE WISE. Gordon has superstar potential. I'm curious to see how they work together. Monta Ellis/Steph Curry tried this experiment recently and failed.

LEGGO

Hope he can. Since Monty and Doc go way back I'm sure Doc told him he thinks he can become a PG.

+ it sounds like Rivers actually wanted to go to NO

They think they can make him into their next PG, he'll have a good teacher in Jack and if not is it bad @ 10 to have a good scorer off the bench? Thunder did that @ 3 with Harden

I know it's all good man..

I'm curious too, they have to see some possibilites with them and Jarret Jack is still there. I guess they feel if Rivers can't become a point guard he can be a very good 6th man scorer.

Gordon being a good pickn'roll ball player is a plus for them if they're going to play next to each other.

Hmm didn't think of it that way... but Rivers could be a very good 6th man since his mentality is to score buckets.

If he can do that i will tip my hat to him, because from all the duke games i've seen Rivers has about as much court vision as a horse wearing blinders

I'll be honest when I first heard his name mentioned after the Private workouts I said But if anything he's gonna sell tickets. Whether it be a gun off the bench or a convert PG

Don't get the pick at all. They drafted a back up for their best player at #10. He's way too small to play SF, and he sure as hell can't play the point. He should have stayed another year at Duke in the first place.

Don't get this at all. Has to be for just ticket sales.

Austin Rivers is going to make Russell Westbrook look like John Stockton if they play him at point.
