Default #27 and #36 picks

Who should we take with these picks? Or should we trade them?

I want to know. Am I the only one on this forum who know who Lester Hudson is? He went to the same college I attend right now. University of Tennessee at Martin, and I will tell you from a personal prospective that the man may be 24, but he can play.

We might have to send one out if we trade the 2nd pick, but we should definitly keep one of them. We could pick up a decent player. Who we should draft with either one though, is completely beyond me. Once you get down that far, you just don't know who's going to be available and who's not, especially in this draft.

I know This is mainly a hypothetical question. Who should we take if we kept our pick.

I honestly don't know. I think guys like Ellington, Christmas and Marcus Thornton are all good options. I think we could pick up a nice shooting SG with one of the later picks.

I agree with this. I would take ellington or omri casspi if one of them is available at this pick.

Its cool that you have loyalty to hudson. But he couldnt be a top ten pg. If he could he would be in the running to get into the lottery.

I personally would like the Griz take Young, Ellington, or Calathes. At #36, I would like to look at a defensive SF, Christmas, or Summers. Those are just some ideas. Let me know what you think. I may be over my head.

#27-Wayne Ellington, bench spot shooter who can come in off the bench and play SG with Mayo moving over to PG.

#36-Whoever slips to the 2nd round, possibly Austin Daye.

I don't think Daye will go down THAT low, but you never know. Same thing happened to Darrell last year. I'm not bashing on him, he's doing the best he can for an undersized PF.

Possibly, but this dude needs to seriously needs to bulk up. I mean, I always though that Anthony Randolph was skinny, but man, he is definitely needs to stick to the 3 till he gets more conditioned.

Trust me there will be someone who slips dramatically into the 2nd Round like Chalmers, CDR & Jordan did in 08', its tough to pinpoint who that may be but it might be Daye, Teague, Clark, or Lawson.

At #36 we're sitting in a good spot, hopefully if we follow Portland's drafting from a few years ago we begin to use our salary space to buy some late 1st round picks.

We really need to focus on depth behind each position unfortunately.

We also need specialist role players, or players with the potential to develop into a specialist.

Though I doubt he will drop this far, but am I the only one here who likes Sam Young's game?
