    I think Schroeder is a several years project tbh. His shot doesn't look so well, slow and inconsistent. And he turns it over a lot. I'm going to trust tbird and hope that one of his favorite older college players drop.
    His shot looks like a trainwreck.

    The turnover issues I'm not too concerned about, because I imagine his usage is through the roof. I mean, we obviously don't want a turnover machine, but when a guy is responsible for a significant amount of your offense, those numbers may get skewed.

    The biggest concern I have is that his offensive game is anything but smooth. He's quick, but there isn't anything that makes him look comfortable at the rim, shooting, anything. My concern would be that he couldn't handle NBA level pressure, because he doesn't seem to have a good shooting process.

    I like that he's very young. I like his man defense.

    thing is, I don't see a lot of guy's I'm interested in left, according to the 7.0 mock.

    Who did Ford have the Pacers taking last year in his final mock draft?

    Aldridge wants out cause Portland is small and boring. Sheesh. Dudes jealous of LeBron. He does realize he can party in other cities in the offseason. I love smaller cities!

    That's pretty funny.

    Keep whining because the cities you desire won't take your contract. It's Portland's decision anyway.

    Shows how much the guy doesn't care. Portland is building up to become one of the best teams in the West in the near future. He's no longer the #1 focal piece of the team either as it belongs to Lillard.

    To be fair, the reports are 50/50 whether he wants out or not. I've seen some credible reporters report it is complete BS that he wants out, and he knows they are a quality center away from being in the playoffs.

    I'm not buying into it much.

    Aldridge never struck me as that type of player and it seems to be coming from an anonymous person and who knows if he actually made that statement.

    I doubt Portland is going to get rid of him anyway. They have a solid core to build with.

    A trade of top players to a team not only in your own conference but your own division? Yeah, Boston is starting from scratch.

    Probably Pierce and KG for Humphries ($12M expiring contract), Gerald Wallace, Marshon Brooks, and picks.

    Danny Ainge has lost his mind. Brooklyn has no assets. If they trade with them going to have to take a bad deal. Edit: two bad contracts. I love Toko wanted to draft him. But damn I don't know. The more I think about it the more I like not gonna use that cap space anyway.

    Starting from scratch? I'm wondering just how drunk Ainge is at this point.

    Jason Kidd is going to have a lot on his hands. The Nets could really fall apart during the season because of bad chemistry amongst these guys.

    Deron Williams/Joe Johnson/Paul Pierce/Kevin Garnett/Brook Lopez

    Those are some big egos to deal with and there's no LeBron on the team to keep it together. They'll probably lack quality depth.

    The Nets seem to really want the big names, but being bought not built doesn't usually mean title contention, other than for the Heat.

    Bosh, Wade, Lebron were all friends when they teamed up. I don't know about these guys.

    Wow, the Celtics would really trade those two and take on Gerald Wallace's salary? He's owed almost as much as KG/Pierce combined. The mid-20s picks (which would presumably be spread out over at least 5 years) aren't worth it... at what point do the Celtics just keep Garnett as opposed to accepting bad trades for him?

    Garnett to keep what together?

    He's not a playmaker on the floor like LeBron is to keep a team from looking like a mess to champions. Garnett and Lopez playing next to each other wouldn't be pretty.

    All of those guys are big names and at this point in their careers, they won't change.

    Plus there's major injury concerns and/or aging going on in that starting 5.

    Joe Johnson can be a diva, and Pierce will be looking to play a big role. It's tough having 2 alpha dogs, and possibly a 3rd and 4th (D-Will, KG, and maybe Joe and Pierce.)

    3 first rounders is ABSURD. For KG, who does not compliment Lopez (Both play outside, both are slow), and Pierce (Not really "washed up", but has slowed down a lot and doesn't seem to complement the Johnson/Williams backcourt.)

    Seems as though the Nets are all-in on contending now. Not looking to develop any talent, not looking to groom any young players...

    Wallace makes around 10 million. PP/KG together make around 27 million.
