Gordon's too small for my taste at number one, so I'll take a pass on him. I do think he'll be a great scorer in the NBA, however.

I'd take either Michael Bealsey, Derrick Rose, or O.J. Mayo. Of those three, I think Rose has the best chance of being a consistent contributor on a team and not getting in a coaches doghouse at the same time.

Not taking team need into account, I'd take Rose. But I'd really consider Gordon, I think he's a sure-fire perennial All-Star.

I agree, trading down in this draft appears to be a good option. If I have the first pick and someone offers a good deal to trade up and get Beasley, I would probably accept (granted I'm still in a position to get a quality player).

This is a really deep draft at the top. Last year you wanted to be in the top 2. That leaves little flexability if you want a top tier guy. This year, you want to be in the top 5. I think if you get the #1 pick, and you really didn't love Beasley or Rose, and you really want a center and love Jordan, and you can move down to #4 and get him, you can do that.

I would not automatically trade out of the #1 pick, however, because this is a talented draft and you can choose whoever you want out of a talented group of guys. You could pick up a PG, one of two SG, a combo-forward, or a center. Whatever you need, you can find it.

I would take Beasley or Rose, no question. It has to be one of those two guys IMO.

Default Re: if you had the number 1 pick who would you take

im afraid to pick first, its not easy you know. id rather trade down to be sure.
it depends on the draft class though, if there is only 1 player that is more talented than the others, so id take it. if the draft is too stacked, id rather trade down and get a young player plus a pick.

e.g. wolves trade the 1st for mike conley and their first.

that brings the wolves:

conley/telfair
foye/mccants
brewer/gomes
jefferson or beasly/smith
jefferson,jordan or hibbert/richard

That is the hard part of trading up though. How much do you give up? Would the Grizzlies give up the #3 pick from last year to get the #1 pick this year? I doubt it. Maybe the Grizzlies would give up Navarro or Warrick.

The thing you have to remember is that if you think the smart thing to do is trade away the #1 pick to get a lower pick, why would someone trade valuble assets to get that pick?

All depends on team need. Any of 4-5 guys could potentially go number 1, but Beasley or Rose more likely at number 1.

I like both, Rose more, but Beasley would be the better choice I think.

Man im hoping the grizzlies get gordon.He is gonna be a wade type player.And would fit well with the grizzlies style of play.

Conley
Gordon
miller
Gay
Gasol.

That would be a hell of a lineup.Then lowry,millic,and navarro off the bench.With reserves like warrik and swift.They would actually have a future.
