    I agree. I'm going on record saying that I think Randle will be a baller.* He's a beast down low and could develop a nice post game.

    Sign Deng or Ariza to play SF or Jodie Meeks to play SG if you draft Parker, and that'd be an entertaining starting 5, win or lose (likely lose).


    *Said the same thing about Thomas Robinson... but this time I'm probably right!

    KJ McDaniels has been my pick for the Rockets for some time. He isn't a good shooter, but he can defend and get to the rim with ease.

    Wouldn't we have to trade away this pick or take an international player (for Melo)?

    That's my expectation as well. I doubt we take the cap burden this year.

    Why is Sam Hankie showing his cards with going so hard after Wiggins, especially considering the chances of him going 1 or 2 is very doubtful.

    Unsigned 2nd rounders don't count toward the cap either so I find a trade back to the 2nd to be very likely as well. The Bucks (#31 and #36) and the 76ers (#32, #39 and several others) would make great trade partners.

    Cleveland should just trade that number one overall for Love and go hard for LBJ.

    It won't happen. Cleveland has a history of suckage. That will turn off LeBron, and will turn off Kevin Love, too. Given no chance of teaming with LeBron, Love wouldn't re-sign there, so Cleveland will have wasted the #1 pick.

    If Hinkie wants Wiggins so badly, I think Cleveland should finally do something smart and draft Wiggins and squeeze Philly for the #3 and Thad Young OR a bevy of those 2nd-round picks. Embiid would likely slide to #3 in that scenario. Get the guy you wanted and more, besides.

    Don't be so sure about that.

    The cap hold for the #25 pick ($991,000) is only about $483k more than an incomplete roster charge.

    If Morey and the front office think that there's a talent available at #25 who could really help the team (either now or down the line), I think they'd be willing to sacrifice that extra $483k in cap room to get that talent.

    Also, if the talent is a good enough one, the Rockets could always find a taker to "dump" that contract (if not gain at least a future second rounder for him) if push came to shove and dumping his contract was absolutely necessary to add a third star. Hell, that player's draft rights might be a difference maker in getting a star's former team to cooperate on a sign-and-trade deal.

    Nik Stauskas would be a steal at 13. Same for Adreian Payne at 16.

    Elfrid Payton now the third best PG in this draft. I wouldn't be surprised if he moved up more.
