Nope just a mock draft - Drummond 6th.
I really would love to know
what Portland is doing.
It looks like they are cutting anyone who can play PG (Felton gone for sure , Flynn as well sounds like). They have to want to address that in the draft but perhaps are happy to wait for the PG with the second pick. They also obvously want a big to protect Aldridge as a "at the cuspe all star".
Aldridge and Crawford are the two untouchables.
What they do with 2 picks impacts the 8th.
Reports today say Crawford is NOT untouchable and perhaps not a part of Portlands plans... that makes some trade possibilities interesting...
I was focused on Iggy, Granger, Gay as the "targeted" vet Toronto wanted.
However Andreas, Jose are both prototype players as good fits for Portland assuming BC wants to take a chance on Crawford and his contract situation.
