there has been more talk recently that people are questioning okafor's drive, and love for the game

jay williams (former duke guard) tweeted that he could fall as far as 6 because of concerns.

Orlando have traded Luke Ridnour to Memphis for the draft rights to Janis Timma (a second rounder from last year), the conspiracy theory is because he is latvian the deal was done so Porzinigis has a friend if we draft him at 5

I don't wear a tin foil hat though so the deal was more likely done because we were going to waive Ridnour anyway and gain a stashed euro player who we never need to bring over if he sucks in summer league.

I called it earlier in the week, he has just as many holes in his game as a lot of the other guys in the 2-5 range and I wouldn't be surprised if he drops. 6 is further than I expect though I thought it'd just be Porzingis and Russell who leap frog him.

Yeah that's my thinking too, and if he did drop to the fourth/fifth range a team would likely trade down to another team who wants him as it means the players on their board are likely gone higher than expected or will be available lower too.

You guys have been reported to drafting Porzingis or Winslow (of those likely available at #5) for like weeks I thought. Your FO looks for a certain personality profile and those guys fit.

The question is if you'll trade anything to land Porzingis if somebody drafts him explicitly to get player(s)/pick(s) out of you. I'm guessing no, but you never know haha

Kind of like how Philly finessed a pick out of them by taking Payton early. Wait, we're drafting before the Magic again this year too, aren't we? Hmm....
