With the draft less than a month away seems like everyone here at Sactown Royalty has an opinion on who to take. Some decide to take this exciting one month strech to bash our GM while others give meaningful input on potential moves we can make to grab Rubio and such.
Dont get me wrong, best case scenario is we walk out with Rubio with this 4th pick. Realistically however, he will not be sitting there for us at pick 4.
That leaves the likes of Brandon Jennings, Jrue Holliday, etc. The popular pick would be some sort of point guard, and while that is absolutley the smart thing to do seeing as we dont have a legitimate point guard, i have another theory.
DeMar DeRozan is possibly the biggest boom/bust prospect in this draft with an amazing amount of potential that could possibly make him the best player in this draft. We all know superstars run this league and DeRozan could be that next great 2 guard.
I know we have Kmart and we all love him but I personally believe best case for Martin is where he is at now. His body frame doesnt seem to be improving which is leading to one ankle injury after another. DeRozan is built like a tank and has all the physical tools to be the next flashy, superstar like player. Even with DeRozan and Martin on the same team we could probably use them both in the line up at the same time.
Need wise PG is the obvious pick but with so many pgs in this draft im sure we could pick up a serviceable pg with the 23rd pick.
What do you guys think? I wouldnt oppose Brandon Jennings here either. I just think with the 4th pick we need to take a chance that could turn into a great thing. Jennings and DeRozan are high risk high reward guys.
For those unfamiliar with Derozan you can read more about him here.
