As far as Griffin, any rookie-esque contract can be used, insert the player. And because I don't like Ike lol. He's solid, but he isn't what we need, he doesn't provide any defense. This Jim O'Brien offense is centered on the perimeter and while Ike has a fairly solid post-game, this offense doesn't put but 1 player on the block. This provides a good kick out shot, except Ike looks like a deer in headlights when he gets double-teamed and does NOT pass out of the post, nullifying the open jumpshot. I'd like to try and get a late 1st to try and get a guy like DJ White, Jason Thompson, Richard Hendrix. Or if we go big with our first pick (Kevin Love, which I'd really like), target a guy like Mario Chalmers, Ty Lawson, or maybe a Brandon Rush or Courtney Lee.
