Default 2007 Draft Picks

From the 2007 NBA draft, Portland acquired the following players:
1st Pick: Greg Oden
24th pick: Rudy Fernandez
30th Pick: Petteri Koponen
37th PIck: Josh McRoberts
52 Pick: Taureen Green

They also acquired Channing Fry and Steve Francis for Dan Dickau, Zach Randolf, and Fred Jones. What do you think about these acquisitions?


My 2 cents:
Everyone knows Oden is going to be a great player. I think the second most important acquisition was Taurean Green. Though he was the last player taken, he gives this team important depth behind Jarett Jack. Petteri Koponen could also be a solid point guard. I think Green came into a great situation in Portland, where he will really get a chance to proove himself and compete for playing time.

This is a very young team with loads of talent. Josh McRoberts was a steal in the second round and with Lamarcus Aldridge and Brandon Roy along with Travis Outlaw and Martell Webster this team has a lot of tallent to work with.

Saying all that...I'm still a rockets fan..GO ROCKETS!

Green is not more important then Rudy Fernandez or Josh Mcroberts IMHO
Francis(might be waived) Jack and Rodriguez are the main PGs in portland Green might not even get a contract with the team plus they could go after Calderon now that they have alot of new young talented players

C-Oden/Joel/lafrentz
PF-Aldridge or Frye/McRoberts
SF-Outlaw/Udoka(FA)/Miles
SG-Roy/Webster/Frenadez
PG-Jack/Rodriguez/Green

magloire is free agents witch they will have to let go
30 year old Ime udoka they will prob keep there oldest player is Lafrentz 31 there avg age is 23.4 and thats no adding James Jones whitch they also aquired tonight
i think they need to get some veterans in here and teach the younger players what they know

James Jones is older than you might think...26-27 i think.

Taurean Green will get a contract...he was the steal of the draft IMO

Guys I dont think will get a contract is McRoberts

Fernandez will stay over seas like Joel Freeland is...I think the same goes for Koponen

Also, remember that Outlaw is also a RFA

Joel will be delt...and I'm sure LaFrentz will get waived or restructure his contract...he's making 11 million to not even crack the top 10 players on the team

Good draft for Blazers. They got Oden, Frye and Francis. And it just might be that Koponen could be a sleeper in this draft (if not this year, maybe in the future) And if they keep Francis and his wheels are ok, then the Blazers are team of the rise. Not to mention LaMarcus, he might have a great season, if the Blazers figure out how to play Oden, Frye and Aldridge in the front.

If Clipps make it, just take it.

I'd like to keep Miles, if he's healthy.
