As you can see SF is a HUGE hole for us as a team. We have ball stoppers and guys who don't like to play defense (John Salmons), I love his ability to shoot the ball but for every good shot he takes he takes 3 bad ones. And of course if Barns is there at pick 5 we'd be crazy to NOT pick him. But I have been thinking, what if we traded the pick to move down a slot or two? Who do we end-up drafting? Kendal Marshall. IT22 did a great job running the offense late last year, my only fear is that he is only 5 foot 9 (more like 5 foot 7), and he is really just pure energy.
I would love to see Kendall Marshall next to Reke, they both play defense, and Marshall LOVE to get assts. so he wouldn't be taking shots away from Reke or DMC but only helping them get in better scoring position. This way we have IT22 and MT23 off the bench (talk about 2 little guys just running around like chickens with their heads cut off) and just scoring like crazy! Though they will probably give UP as many points as they score Together MT23 and IT22 will def. get fans on their feet and have us losing our voices.....Jimmer, idk if he could become a PG then there is no need to get one but I haven't seen him do ANYTHING in the NBA
Jimmer 5th over all ------> Batum/6th over all or
Jimmer 5th over all-------> Richard Jefferson/ 7th over all
This way we get a starting SF and a PG. Now Jefferson is a little old, but his is also a vet which is something this team TOTALLY needs. Also in a few years his contract comes off the books and by that time some of OUR players would have hopefully grown up some, THOUGH I am afraid that I can see Portland taking Kendall Marshall to pair up with LA.....But this is just me tell me what you think!!!
