IF THE NEW JERSEY NETS LAND THE FIRST PICK IN THE DRAFT AND THEY DRAFT WALL. SHOULD THEY TRADE HARRIS
i know we seen every mock draft with the nets getting the first pick and drafting wall with it. and that would be great for them. but what about harris. no way can i see harris and wall getting along in the same backcourt (see curry and ellis in GS) plus they have lee already. so what happens next after they draft wall. do they try to keep both.and make it work or do they go ahead and trade all-star guard .
They should make the move that will improve their team the most. If someone offers a ton for Wall, then do it and if someone offers a ton for Devin then they should take that. But let's not forget that even with the worst record in the league they only have a 25% the win the lottery, so maybe we should cool it with all these nets/wall threads.
If the Nets want John Wall, they better start winning some games. History has proven that having the best chance of getting the #1 overall pick almost never equates to actually getting the #1 pick.
Statistics > History.
If they want wall, tank the season.
as a blazer fan maybe with Rudy and Bayless or some other deal we can get him. he could be a pretty good upgrade.
Yeah, Harris is a great PG but hes not gonna bring them to that next level
I can't say that Wall will, but he definitely has more potential to do so
it would be a very dumb move to trade harris before seeing wall play in the nba. and no one knows if they will work in the back court. and they are 2 different players then ellis and curry. harris doesnt mind passing and getting a bunch of assist and wall doesnt mind doing it either. the smart move is if you draft them see how they work together and see if you can get wins or draft him and see what you can get for him..actually that is a better decision because you might can get some players who will help you win more games. also lebron seems to really like the kid so see if you can lure lebron to youre team by drafting wall. he already is friends with hova
Harris was dropping 24 a night last year, I don't think trading him to bring in John Wall would be a great move, they could draft Wall and bring him off the bench at first, Harris is a good enough shooter he could play a little 2 guard in a quick lineup,and they could evaluate which direction they wanted to go at the end of the season. It probably wouldn't hurt to draft a PF if you were New Jersey, Yi has made strides, but is never healthy, I think Favors would be a good fit there, and although he hasn't made the impact Wall has this season he has just as much potential if not more.
Thhey need a legit PF more than a pg.
if a good trade came along yeah but i would at least wait to see if they can play together, also devin harris's value is probably down right know for complaining about the team and his overall bad play so they should sit on him until his value goes back up.
Gettin top pick is all luck they probly land top 3 at least.
How are they so bad with Lopez, Harris and CDR.
harris overall bad play?...what harris we talking about because considering devin is coming back from injury he's playng pretty well. and theres no way i draft favors firsti see a couple of other players with better potential and that i think will be better players then him. he doesnt seem to have awhole lot of skills as a pf right now meaning if you take away his athletisim his game drops off dramaticlly . and they are so bad with those three because of that injury harris had that had him miss those games. if youre best player gets hurt and youre playing this season where youre best player from last year got traded then this is the result
assuming the Nets get the #1 overall pick...
If the Nets do not draft John Wall with the overall pick they are morons. And the Nets management are not dumb enough to draft a player based on positional need when their team is playing so poorly.
-It should be a common sense that ANY team that vies for the #1 pick should ALWAYS draft the best PROVEN player available--a team with the #1 pick should never draft on need (unless they get the pick because their superstar player was out all season due to injury and they could be a championship contender with that one missing piece) because they are clearly far from a high caliber team.
-And the #1 pick should NEVER be a player who is not proven.
Not only is John Wall one of the most proven basketball players in the nation but he is also probably one of a few with the most "potential". So either way, he is the clear cut #1 pick no matter what team drafts him--and that team should never trade that proven talent because in John Walls case he has more ceiling to grow--for instance, what if he turns into an elite player like Kobe or Bron.
How do you say oops.
-They 100% should not draft someone else based on potential. We have all witnessed the mistakes GMs have made over the years drafting on "potential" with the overall (or top 5 pick).
Here's a short list of draft duds that came to mind that were drafted on "potential":
-Kwame Brown (tore it up in HS, but HS is not a good barometer for success in the NBA)
-Darko Milicic (no impressive stats in europe, drafted soley based on potential)
-Tyrus Thomas (had a few good games at LSU and has always shown flashes but still was a major reach since all he offered was "potential")
-Darius Miles (eh.. during his Clippers days he mighta been the best player on this list.. that doesn't say much)
-Marvin Williams (for the number 2 pick after doing nearly nothing at UNC his freshman year--the guys a bust sorry. Chris Paul fit the hawks needs and was the best player in the country and they picked this guy... sheesh.. )
-Nikoloz Skitishvilli (dont even know how to spell the dudes name.. he should change his last name to "Bust")
-Hasheem Thabeet (too early to tell but the bust potential is equal if not greater than his success potential)
-Greg Oden (sorry Oden fans, he cant stay on the floor and when he is he is still a major project. for a player his size and with his athleticism he SHOULD be a defensive stopper....)
Trading Harris would be dumb too unless they get a proven big man back in return or a couple of first round picks. Depending on what happens draft night the Pacers might be in a position to offer a top 4 pick and McRoberts or Hibbert for Harris... That might be interesting to entertain but who knows until June..
either way the Nets should NOT trade Wall unless you get Chris Paul, Dwyane Wade, Kobe Bryant, Lebron James, Dirk Nowitski, or Dwight Howard cause you never know how good this guy could be.
ok, im done..
