I agree that we need a PG and BIG man. With the amount of cap room we could try and fill at least one of these positions in freeagency. but there are 2 guys that i like.
Derrick Favors, or Cousins. Some people are worried about cousins but this guy has the tools and size to be THE next dominant big man. I like favors as well but he is really anothe PF not a center. and i think we have 4 or 5 different guys on the team right now that can play the PF spot(landry, Thompson, Greene, Hawes, May). We are in much more need of a true 5. Could cousins be a bust? maybe. But he could be a 290 lbs beast of a center.
for the PG spot we will probably just wait until our second round pick. I dont see any reason for them to try and move up to get a PG at this point. For this pick i like Eric Bledsoe. I think this kid took a position at 2 guard because john wall was abeast and i dont know if he could challenge him. I see pure point guard all over this guy. also making the transition to the nba for him and cousins easier since there both from the same college team.
If these 2 guys fall our way i would be very happy with our draft. but neither one will have the instant impact that a good veteran would.
Ya. they might draft monroe if Cousins is gone. They seemed to kinda like him at the workouts. but i hope Cousins is not gone. But all this really depends on tommorw when Cousins and favors have a private work out for the kings. I guarrante Geoff wont really decide till last minute but he will have a real good idea after he gets to evaluate favors a cousins one on one tomorrow.
I really hope they draft Monroe. C-webb comparisons since high school. sounds perfect to me. Maybe trade Jason Thompson for a true center. Who I'm not quite sure. Perhaps go down in the draft by trading him and grab a guy who might be a bust. like Orton or Whiteside. Turn your front court into a very good looking one for the future. then worry about a point guard. Maybe get Greivis Vazquez in the second round?
Vasques is my second pick for the second round if wille warner is gone. mainly like warner because his out side shot is legit and we need our other guard to have that. but mixing a couple young drafties with possible character issues together with an already young team could be bad. but right now im still just hoping on cousins being available.
Been watching a lot of college hoops lately and their are some PGs I've been watching that could be a good fit for the Kings. The Kings should look out for Kyrie Irving from Duke, Brandon Knight from Kentucky and Demetri McCamey from Illinois. Irving reminds me of Chris Paul and McCamey reminds me of Chauncey Billups and Mike Bibby.
