Interesting article by beat writer V Goodwill. It's kind of basic, but also clearly lays out the team's options how to rebuild. Since many of you love to play GM here, which scenario do you prefer? I really liked how Seattle/OKC rebuilt, for a number of reasons. First, Sam Presti may well be the best GM in the game, and he learned his lessons well from RC Buford who would be my alternate "best GM" choice. You do have to get the picks, and hit on them. There's no lock of doing so. But Presti scored, and also scored with Ibaka. Also, one thing Buford and SAS do better than any other team is nailing the 2d rounder. We used to be good at it, when the braintrust consisted of Perry, Hammond and Ronzone, Perry and now Ronzone are back again, so we may find a sleeper or two there next year. As for our squad, I think after this year's draft, we'll be in better position to figure out what our core going forward is going to be and add players from there. This will likely be our last trip to the lottery, so, where we go from here is probably to develop depth, either by 2d tier FAs or by the draft (specifically, 2d rounders). Finally, one thing I'm thinking of is, say we get the #6 pick. Do you trade up to try to get Davis, and if you do, what can you offer which doesn't destroy your team? Davis is obviously a special talent, and would compliment Moose well. On the other hand, it is a deep draft, you are going to get a player who will be a NBA starter for years to come. Also, you can draft a wing player if that's the best available, and hope that a Ezeli or Melo will still be on the board at #37 when the Pistons draft again.
