    I just don't know who the elite SF would be. I don't really see it.

    McAdoo comes off as a Shawn Marion type to me. I'll definitely catch a few UNC games this season with his new star role.

    Doubt it. Kyrie played 11 games, still went #1. Kanter didn't play a single game and still went 3rd. Once teams get Shabazz in for workouts.. they'll realize he's too good to pass up.

    agreed, kanter went 3 and i belive shabazz is a better regarded prospect and he will look good next to kyrie and dwait

    Well, after watching that game, one thing is very clear. This team needs someone who can score from the SF position. Gee, Miles, etc. will not cut it. That may just be the glaring weakness on the team moving forward.

    We have 2 young potential stars in the back-court. We have youth and athleticism at the 4 and 5 positions. Do we really want Alonzo Gee taking 8-10 shots a game? Ew.

    SF with a corner 3 is a must. Doesn't even need to be our first pick, could be someone like a John Jenkins from Vandy. Whenever Kyrie or Dion drove into the lane tonight, we left so many points on the floor because of poor spacing and an inability to hit that corner 3.

    Gee was excellent defensively. He really harassed the Wiz. He was playing outside himself on offense, and Ariza is a pretty good defender.

    Agreed. The glaring weakness is not at the SF spot.. its that we have no low post presence. The SF spot can be filled by some random free agent who can stand at the 3 pt line. Hopefully, we can dig out a post player in the draft next year .. This is probably the first time I've only got one foot in on the TT bandwagon. JV could have been that guy. Too late now. Maybe Steven Adams is a realistic pick for us.

    Just realize this team will not have an All Star at every position. I think a dynamic big who can defend and score (esp in the post..) is more important than an SF.

    I'd keep an eye on Isaiah Austin from Baylor this year. Legit 7 footer who shoot from around 18 feet. The knock on him is that he's a little bit soft but he's got great physical attributes.

    McAdoo and Zeller seem like guys Grant would have high on his board. Of course we have a long way to go.

    McAdoo all the way! But its way too early to be hoping for the draft!

    Does anyone have a good scouting report on Rudy Gobert? I know absolutely nothing about him, but his size and length would be mighty tempting on the Cavs...

    Super super super super super raw.
    Only reason he's considered a first round pick is size and length.

    It looks like a big if mock drafts are at all dependable this year. I was looking for future SF's noted by mock drafts in their top 10 the other day. Bupkis.

    I generally don't trust mock drafts, but an ofer?
