I'd agree, I think it matters simply in tier cutoff scenarios......if it is the difference between Morant or Barrett.......or the difference between Reddish or Culver, I'm burning the pick....in both cases for the Duke guy. That is more of what I was alluding to......if you get to a cliff and the pick is the difference between getting the last guy before that dip or the first guy after it, those are the scenarios where you invest the capital.That's true, but I'd almost rather just use the pick. From what I've read - because I do zero of my own "evaluation" for the draft - this draft is more deep than top-heavy. Nobody other than Zion seems a sure thing in this draft, and nobody is trading that pick to us for lower picks in this draft.
So if it's going to be a crapshoot, I'd rather just take another player. Our roster is weak enough that we're going to need more tuan top 3 players to fill it.
I'd perhaps be more inclined to trade it for a future pick that projects to be higher.
If you just end up in a tier with multiple players available, then sure, just make the pick.
