Malick Badiane or Boris Diaw would be nice picks at 24 (If they Slip)
you never know drafts Kareem Rush was supposed to go 14th last year we thought we got a steal with the trade :man6:

Agree with your take swol about Kareem.
I was so happy that we got him, at the spot that we got him since he was projected to go much higher (14) to Indy. When he fell, I thought we got a steal. In college he can play offense, but no D. That should have been the telling sign. We should draft players with the athletic ability to play D first and can improve his offense through the years. With Rush, if he can't make his shots, he is basically useless out there because he can't play D, can't pass, and can't rebound. I hate one-dimensional players. I guess a safe way we can go at it is pick a player that can serve multiple roles even if the offense at this point is suspect.

Boozer who have been nice!!

I like your pick of Diaw. I read a lot of reports and he's long enough to play great D. A fellow member of this site, DA, compares him to a Scottie Pippen like player!!!

again, Hansen, Bell and West are my main priorities, and there are many others I would like as well that are all in the 20-35 pick range...we chould wind up with two quality rookies if we simply do our homework...and draft for fundamentals, athleticism and defense...
