Default Sonics trading the 4th pick


Their time is not now especially with the ownership issue and stuff, get another young promising player and build for the future...


The Seattle Times:

The Sonics dropped down to the fourth pick on Tuesday night, despite having a legitimate shot at landing one of the top two picks, and could be looking to deal the selection, according to The Seattle Times.

"Everybody goes into the lottery with hopes of getting the No. 1 pick, but we're excited to have the fourth pick because we feel like we can get a quality player there," general manager Sam Presti said. "We'll get someone that can help and continue to build on the foundation that we have in place."

Presti admitted that the team is willing to discuss trades for the pick, although they still feel as though they can grab a top-tier player.

If they are smart, they will draft Bayless and try to trade Ridnour and/or Watson. Bayless/Durant could be an unstoppable duo as well.

They will just draft Mayo or Bayless. Whoever is still there at #4.

Why would they trade it? Or for who?

We'll give them Cedric Simmons and Ben Gordon for #4. Then we can take Lopez and Rose.

Why do you say that? I'm sure Mayo respects Durant's talent and would have no problem passing him the ball. It's not like Durant is a hard player to get along with.

If I'm Seattle, I'd rather have Mayo than Bayless. Mayo has the makings of a better defensive player.

bayless is a better passer than mayo... well what you think of mayo is true that he can feed the ball to durant.. seattle shouldnt miss on him... but from what ive seen from mayo he can be a ballhog sometimes...

The 1-2 duo of Bayless and Durant would be a great young core. It would be fun to watch.

Knicks. Could be in the right position to snag Mayo if he's available.

#6 and Lee for the #4


If Mayo is taken 3rd, don't do this.

Seattle would do that in a second if offered, and if its allowed by salary cap rules ?

Are you retarded? I'm not part of the "David Lee > life" crowd, but that's still a stupid trade.
