Default Re: Who would you like to draft at number 6?

Trade Rondo and Green for Gay and #8. Pick up Embiid at 6, Lavine at 8, Shabazz at 17.

Bradley/Shabazz
LaVine
Gay/Wallace
Bass/Olynyk
Sullinger/Embiid (RIP)

That team would be on a collision course for the #1 pick next season. But after next season, we get Love for the max and then sign back Rondo. We get:

Rondo/Shabazz
Bradley/LaVine
Lottery pick/Wallace
Love/Olynyk
Sullinger/Embiid

That team has the potential to be dirty.

Trading Rondo and Green for Gay and LaVine
Starting Sully over Embiid
Signing back Rondo, a year after trading him
Assuming Love will be allowed to walk into FA after a team just traded for him

Wayyyy too much risk in resigning rondo, signing love, and all the players falling to us in the draft

I hear that it's possible that embiid might be up for grabs at 6. Do you think it's worth going for that risk? I mean it could pay off immensely if he heals, and if he doesn't, well we're still in the rebuilding phase.

I would be 100% for drafting embiid at 6, that would be a steal.

Of course it's worth it. Embiid is the best prospect in the Draft.

I wish we packaged Rondo to get to 8 when Vonleh was sliding. Best PF in draft, and Ainge would have ended the night with 3 lottery talents.

just asking, but don't you think we already have enough power forwards as it is? like bass, humphries and sulinger? unless you're saying we would probably trade them off.

Well Humphries expired this year so I don't think they will bring him back. Bass will expire after this season. I think Sullinger is much better suited to be your first big off the bench, if you want to be a championship team. You need an elite PF to win the championship. The last 8 championship teams have had 5 elite PFs: Chris Bosh, Tim Duncan, KG, Dirk, and Pau Gasol back when Lakers had Bynum.
