If the Wizards decide to hold onto the pick and opt against trading to dump salary or a potential blockbuster amare type deal, who should the Wiz take? I feel like if he's still on the board you have to take Harden, as a Wizards fan I will have an EXTREMELY tough time watching games if Deshawn Stevenson is our starting 2 guard. I think Harden would be great at the 2 spot with Nick Young hopefully growing into a JR Smith type role off the bench. But guys like Jordan Hill and Steph Curry could be good options also, what do you think?
Harden the best choice, but i wouldnt be against Jordan Hill
Agree...Harden is the pick if he is available. Curry would be the 2nd option. I just don't see Hill helping out the Wizards...at least not next year. Rubio would be a no-brainer if he happens to fall to #5 which he could.
They need help up front. No big men are worth #5 except Hill, who I'm not very big on and is a very slight reach at #5. They don't need Curry (another shoot first point guard), and Rubio will not fall. Someone will trade up to 2 or 3 to take him. My guess is Harden if he were there, but I see Oklahoma City taking him. That's the whole reason they're looking to trade, right? I'm guessing Hill if they keep the pick.
No one seems to have them real high on a PG, but Arenas is a combo guard, so why not a true PG or even better another combo guard? It seems there are a lot of players likely available, not just Harden who I agree would be the best fit, who could push Stevenson to the bench (or at least be the first guard off the bench) and be a good fit for the Wiz.
Either Harden, or Hill. harden, first choice and if their both gone take Curry.
