White is a stud, reminds me of an Odom/Diaw combination. His averages were 13.4pts,9.3rbs,5.0asts on 53.4% FGs at Iowa State. He's got an NBA ready build and mindset. Plus he's almost a good of a passer as Gasol and won't need a lot of shots to contribute (averaged less than 10 fga at Iowa State).
Future 1st round pick, Blake, Eyenga to Minnesota for Beasley (S&T). Pick up Hill's 3.4 mill team option, sign Sessions to 4 mill per for 2 seasons, and Barnes for veteran's minimum.
What do you guys think?
I like that Houston trade although it would make us a bit guard heavy. I am really big on Darius Johnson Odom and think he is going to be an excellent defensive player in the league from day 1, so he needs to be in the rotation. Maybe trade Morris and Blake to get a quality big. I think Sacre is gonna make the team too. so, I'm saying Lowry/Sessions/Odom
