It could have been worse – that’s what she said.
When expecting to get the No. 5 pick, I guess this an upgrade. But I am disappointed that we could not crack the top three. This now puts right in the middle of the DeMarcus Cousins debate and he is complicated, we will get into that more later. Side-Note: I am happy that New Jersey didn’t get the No. 1 pick, maybe this will calm the LeBron talks in Brooklyn.
ESPN’s Chad Ford has Cousins as the No. 4 prospect and then Syracuse’s SF Wesley Johnson at No. 5, while the Big Board at NBAdraft.net has Georgia Tech’s PF Derrick Favors at No. 4 and Georgetown’s C Greg Monroe.
We will look at teams and their needs, speculate at the trade options, and ultimately which prospect will be the best fit and which player the team will actually choose.
For now, I am going to watch LOST.
