Sactown draft confusion!!!!

The Sacramento Kings who are in a rebuilding phase are puzzled to what they should do with their future draft pick. If they get the very first pick (25% chance), Blake Griffin, they wonder about what they should do with Jason Thompson who is probably the most suprising stars among the rookies with 11.2ppg and 7.3rpg. I was wondering if they could have a lineup as follows for a future core if they get the 1st pick in the lottery.

PG(?) SG(Martin)

PF(Griffin) C(Hawes) PF(Thompson)

The reason I thought this was possible was because even though they lack of a SF in their starting lineup who usually would knock down 3's(Fransisco Garcia is a sharpshooting SF who would be their 6th man), they have Hawes(34% 3pt. shooter). Spencer Hawes is listed as a 7-1 Center and I believe he has the sweetest shot out of anyone in Sactown.

Hawes has nicer stroke

There is no way K-mart has a better stroke than Hawes. Have you ever seen K-Mart play. He shoots the ball out of his left pocket causing him to get blocked more and be more off balance.

If they got the first pick,

If they got the first pick, they could trade it to the Thunder, for there 3 first round picks, then draft Rubio with the second pick(assuming the thunder get the 2nd pick).

Would the thunder give up 3

Would the thunder give up 3 picks for one?

The Thunder would be foolish

The Thunder would be foolish to give up 3 picks for 1, especially in a draft with very few apparent "superstars" but full of solid role players/decent starters, which would help improve the Thunder's depth.

Thunder have only 2 1st rounders

They got rid of the third at the trade deadline for Thabo Sefolosha. So now it belongs to the bulls. I think it was good for Thabo because he'll show his talent,but not that good for the bulls because they lose a great perimeter defender.

Don't worry the Kings will

Don't worry the Kings will not get the first pick anyway.

idk about

idk about spencer hawes having a better shot than kmarti mean that kid is a scoring machine and converts a high percentage of his points so i cant agree with you on that. I saw the lineup u had and its not bad but wat happens when they have to play smaller teams with quick players and watnot how will they defend with their bigs? the whole trade thing could work but who exactly would they be drafting. sactown has 2 many problems

Sac Breakdown

The Kings have eight players signed for next year:
PG B. Udrih
SG K. Martin, F. Garcia
SF A. Nocioni, D. Greene
PF J. Thompson, K. Thomas
C S. Hawes

If you look at the depth chart, Sac has room for another big man. Sure, it would mean that their last three first-rounders would be big men, but I think that there is enough minutes for all of them. Kenny Thomas is absolutely worthless and Jason Thompson is not exactly a beast in the paint, so Sac could use some strength inside. As previously mentioned, Hawes and Thompson can play on the perimeter and both have the ability to shoot extremely well, this would open up the inside for Griffin. If your a team with 60 loses, you have to pick the best player available, and Griffin is exactly that. They are desparate for a point guard, but this draft is loaded with them, so maybe they can pick one up later in the draft.
