     So on 2K yesterday, I went ahead and decided to do a little draft rebuild.

    You may not like it, but hear it out.

    I traded LMA +Babbit for #2 pick, Tristan Thompson and Anderson Varejao. Drafted Nerlens Noel.

    Traded Batum+ 2014 1st round pick for #4 pick, drafted Otto Porter.

    Drafted Ben Mclemore with the 10th pick.

    Signed random filler bench players, and this team simulated to a 48 win season with them as rookies, next year 52 wins and a second round playoff loss, third year conference finals, fourth year won a championship. 

    I realize this is a stretch, especially considering mclemore was snagged at the 10th pick, but I don't think we should be so scared of actually rebuilding at this point, with the tools in this draft, + the talent next year it's a good time to embrace this youth movement, especially considering the dominance looming with these Miami, OKC, Clippers type teams.

    Jason, ain't no one giving up a 2014 first round pick. I assume you meant number one pick, and that's a touch and go deal. I personally don't like it, because it means my favourite, and our best player who I think we should be building around would be leaving. We get solid rebounders, but don't really fix our defence.

    I am a fan of Raymond Felton. Haha, seriously though I'm a fan of Batum's Lobs and JJ's Slams.

    Yeah I know, I think I gained a first round pick somewhere but since it was a game it doesn't take into account the quality of the next draft, just saying we shouldn't so afraid of retooling. I have aldridge and batum jerseys so I don't wanna see em go either but sometimes it's necessary ya know?

    with the potential of talent in next years draft if we wanted to go into rebuild mode this would be the time next years draft is supposed to be one of the deepest drafts ever

    Hawes will be a hot commodity by the trade deadline, I would think the sixers could find a better offer.

    However, I do believe Mo Williams could have somewhat of  a high trade value. Olshey needs to make a deal to get a big man while we...

    Yeah and now Blazers have zero interest in Bynum. I really thought he was worth the small risk. If anything he would be at the end of our bench and we use him as a sub. Hopefully we do make some type of trade for a quality back up center. Right no...
