With the 24th and the 32nd picks in the draft, we don't need 2 good/OK players. We can trade both and get 1 possible future all-star in the top 10 picks. Remember, that we don't need more players since Karl Malone, Pippen, Payton, and even more free agents want to play for the Lakers next year. So, getting depth via draft is not a need. Getting a very good one player in the draft is a must. So Mitch don't mess this up.
Also, getting a player that is meant to play with Kobe is important. Since, Shaq is getting old, all players drafted now and in the future should be fitted for Kobe. This will be Kobe's team later on, and getting a Scottie Pippen type player is not bad. I know that Devean George could be Pippen, but lets try to get one in the draft.
