I don't think Waiters will be available at 8 anyway.
That is what I was going to bring up, but the Harden trade to give OKC the number two pick is very, very intriguing to me. We all know Harden is going to want Thunder Big 2 money and I, personally, don't think he deserves even half of their yearly salary. I do not think that Harden can go on playing at the level he has been without the assets OKC has. Essentially I believe the system in place and the rest of the team make him- he is a true sixth man.
I can't wait to see what happens with Kendall Marshall. Oh, and Anthony Davis' Agent and Parents decided to trademark his uni-brow? That is ridiculous and ingenious.
I heard New Orleans is thinking about drafting him with their 10th pick. If they do, hopefully they get rid of Jarrett Jack. They could probably trade Jack for another pick. Keep Vasquez, he's beast.
I agree that he will be the best PG of the draft. Marshall did work out for the Hornets on Saturday, so I could definitely see that happening as he isn't going top 5 and Portland, Golden State and Detroit all settled at that position and Toronto is wanting to take Austin Rivers.
Most Mock Drafts show NOLA taking Jeremy Lamb at 10, but I would take Kendall in a second.
Marshall is the best pure PG in this draft. Marshall can become a poor man's Chris Paul.
I'd much rather have a poor man's Chris Paul over a poor man's Rose/Westbrook.
Translation: I'd much rather have a pure PG who can run a team than a me-first chucker.
Ditto, but now there is some speculation that NOLA wants to convert Austin Rivers to play the point. If Toronto plays it smart and doesn't take him NOLA may just do it due to the notoriety of his father.
Austin is probably going to go at least 7 spots higher than he should due to his father.
