Thoughts on what I'm reading:
I don't want T.J. Ford, unless I can trade Tins + not much for him. Ford's played 251 games in 4 seasons for an average of ~63 games/year. Tinsley has played 398 games in 7 seasons for an average of ~57 games/year. In short, Ford is not any less of an injury risk than Tinsley.
I think we can trust Bird to draft the best available player within reason. I think he'll draft the best player that's not a 3. I think that's a very reasonable strategy. We need help at every position other than SF. The only other concern I have would be taking a PF with JO, Ike, Shawne, and Foster still on the roster. If we draft a PF, we better have a plan to move at least one of those guys. It won't do us any good to draft Arthur or Speights or Love to have them competing with Ike and Shawne to be the 4th wheel behind Foster, O'Neal, and Murphy. And don't kid yourself into thinking that we can find a way to move Murphy.
I like Dunleavy a lot, but I can certainly see plenty of reasons to trade him. If I got offered a PF/C or guard of equal or slightly lesser ability than Dun, I'd take them provided they could bring qualities to the table that this team is missing: rebound and shot-blocking from a PF/C and strong perimeter defense from a guard.
In looking at who we might draft this year, we should look at Bird's stated vision for the team and the qualities he's liked in players in the past. I think that Larry looks for effort first and foremost in a player. I have a very hard time seeing him take a player like Jordan who has a questionable heart/work ethic.
