in yours opinion which player is with the most likelihood to slide into the sixth pick?(i think it's the biggest question of this draft)... aka, who will be available and will be select by Portland between: Thomas Robinson, MKG, Harrison Barnes, Beal or Andre Drummond???
I'd guess Barnes since most teams are servicable at the 3, but badly need help at the 2.
but Barnes is a swingman, thanks to his shooting he could play the 2 or the 3 and he will be very valuable to teams like Cavs or Wizards and of course the Kings!
I don't think Barnes is an NBA 2. I can see him there in spot minutes, but in the modern NBA teams go small far more often than they go big, particularly in the backcourt.
I have TRob falling and Portland taking him as BPA. I think he is a hustle big man anyway at least at first. He can come off the bench and play some 4 with LA at the 5. I don't think it is out of the realm of possibility that TRob falls to 7 with GS is Pottland loves Waiters or Lillard.
Beal. But Portland will take Lillard over him. Their hole at pg is massive and by all words Lillard really impressed them.
Not only will drummond slide, I have him being involved in a trade at 7. I completely disagree with this and if I was a gm I'd take him earlier. But based on all the articles so far no one truly believes in him as top 5 pick. Top 5 talent yes top 5 pick no.
TRob is a poor fit in Portland and he or MKG falling would be worst case.
I would think one of Portland or Cleveland would have to take the risk on Drummond if he's still on the board.
i think Drummond is a lock at #5 to Sacramento, they love to take gambles!
I think Drummond will slide, Portland has another lotto pick and can afford to gamble a little. I have never fully bought into Lillard at #6 and I think he is who the Raptors have their eye on at #8.
Drummond falls to #6
But portland has stated how much they love lillard so who knows who they pick... I would think they would grab drummond if he slipped and take lillard if mkg was available.
