    Would like if we risk a pick on Wroten, he seems like a potential star at PG with his size and skill package. Can do this if we have at least two picks.

    wow, i know others will disagree with me, but if we ended up with those 3, i would be pretty happy. Still would take Terrance Jones over all of them except Lamb, but that would be a nice haul for the Rockets. Problem is we don't need 3 more rookies, so that senario is not likely to play out. Then again, i've always been for getting rid of Martin and Scola, and truly starting the rebuilding process, in which case, those are 3 talented young prospects (Lamb and Miller def. have star potential).

    Why not? Guy blocks 3 shots a game. THAT is a skill that translates to the NBA.

    If we end up on the outside looking in as far as the playoffs go and get three first rounders, I gotta believe we'd be looking to trade.

    I'd take Terrence Jones over Henson, just based on pure ability/skills.

    I agree with Yung-T on the Wroten sentiment, but I'd love for us to move back a little maybe get a second or first rounder for next year's draft and taking a chance on a big like Young (Florida) or Moultrie (Mississippi State).

    I think Young could be a solid 10-10 PF while playing elite defense. Too bad he's 6'9" because he would be a dominant defensive center if he was a couple inches taller.

    What no love for a 210 lb 4?

    Anthony Davis is only 10 lb heavier, FTW.

    One of the previous questions was about Aaron Craft, Ford said that most teams would pick him late 1st or 2nd, while he knows that one team would select him in the mid 1st round.

    I don’t watch much college hoops, but would you package our picks to get someone you really like in top 8, or would it really not make much difference? I personally hope we can trade all those picks for a potential star or ideally an established star. Getting three Morris/Patterson level talents doesn’t do much for this team.

    I honestly feel like outside of the top5 there's nothing worth packing up multiple deals for. Only guys I'd pack up for are Davis, Gilchrist, Robinson, Beal, Drummond, Zeller, Jones.

    I'd agree, but to me, after Drummund at #5, all of the players are pretty equal through #16 or so. And how much of a difference is there between a guy like Kidd-Gilchrest and a guy like Terrence Jones? Or a guy like Beal and a guy like Lamb? I really don't think it's that wide a gap (and i have Beal as the 2nd best player in the draft btw)

    Seeing all the promising guys in 13-30 range I'd use all picks though, rather have three with two turning out solid than one guy being hit or miss.
