Hood would be the one shitting his pants on the wide open jumpers in the playoffs.The problem I have with White, Hunter, and Culver is i think they will evolve to pretty OK players.. probably.. if I were to stand any one of them next to Rodney Hood, I would be hard pressed to differentiate. I see a difference between them and Barret, but.. not between each other. In fact i would have Okeke as a better choice than all of those guys pre injury.. he is bigger, a better shooter, and a team defense guy..
What has worked with sexton at 8, was his upside and desire to achieve it. He clearly had skills being the best player on a bad team, but he was also willing to work hard to get better..
Thats why I am saying Goga maybe at 4, because if he succeeds he changes the equation.. or trade back and pick up maybe white AND Okeke, increasing the odds that one will achieve special..
I also think picking up a 6 8 wing really helps us the most, because I think, cedi gets better opposite another 6 8 wing. Cedi has the handles to play 2, and with Sexton at the point the back court is going to be loaded. Or when you are resting sexton, you can use cedi and wing 2, or nance to bring the ball up and initiate..
I don't believe in trading back in the NBA. That's for the NFL, where I don't really believe in doing it either.
Take BPA. I think Hunter can be really, really good. Tobias Harris-Leonard-peak Danny Granger on the high end, Jeff Green on the low end (I know, when you say the low end, everyone goes: why take Jeff Green at 6? Well because the high end is f-ing Kawai Leonard).
I'm not big on Cedi, he's OK, maybe an OK rotation guy on a good team eventually. I guess he has the handles to play the 2, but he has the decision making to play the towel boy.
I think Okeke and Goga, if that's who you like, can be had with the Rocket pick (or a small trade up w/JR's contract & the Rockets pick). Not sure that Goga is any different than Zizic, but ok.
