If you had a new team with weaknesses at every position, who would you take with the #1 pick in this years draft?
So you mean if I had the Cavs?
Me personally I would go with Kanter or Perry Jones if Sullinger is out of your equation.
I'd have to pick Kanter
Yeah, pretty much if you had the Cavaliers and you have NO hope in J.J. Hickson
I'd go with Derrick Williams. Guy is a beast and a coach's dream.
Id go with Williams, but Barnes and Kanter would also be good options.
If I have the first pick, no matter who I am, I pick the same guy..
Not Irving.. I am disapointed in his body as an NBA player and dont really feel like he is ready for the league right now..
Not Barnes because I feel like he is going to take some time to be an effective player in the league.
Not a Euro player because, like Barnes, they take some time..
I pick Derrick Williams.. He can play the 4/3 and he is versatile enough to guard most positions.. And to me, he is the perfect player to place at the top of your team... Think of him as a more mobile Greg Monroe... If he measures in the 6'9 range and isnt like 6'7, he is the number 1 pick for sure...
Its btwn Barnes and Williams for me..... but this tournament Williams has played outta his mind, again this site is right, nbadraft.net had williams #1 b4 anyone else
And the only reason why I say that, isn't because I'm dick riding. Its because everyone should start out with a pure point guard. And Irving is it. Start out with a point guard, build around him. Thats just how I see it. Second choice would obviously be Derrick Williams, lol just too good to pass up if Irving is gone.
I think it depends on where the Cavs' next pick falls... I would pick up Derrick Williams and HOPE Kanter falls to 8th... This might be a golden age of PGs or whatever, but none of these PGs have won anything at the moment except for Rondo. A nba team can win championships with a mediocre PG.
