What's wrong with carrying four guards that can score?

If they move Evans to Chicago for Noah like people have been speculating, then they can definitely afford to draft a scoring point.

They'll have better options at their spot though.

Noah? Haven't heard that one

Doubt that

I've heard Deng. Curious if it comes to fruition

Evans + 5th overall selection for Noah + 29th overall selection has been talked about on ESPN Insider.

I don't like that for Sac

Hope they don't go through with that

Drummond on Chicago would be bad ass though. That's a team that he should go to. He'll develop a lot in a franchise like that

Think Miami end it tonight?

As a fan of the game, I want this series to go to 7.

But I do think they'll close it out tonight...

I kind of hope so...I always hate seeing the team win their title on their opposing court, and I don't see this thing going 7. Unless Durant goes into crazy take-over mode like I saw him doing at Texas a few times...

The way Lebron has been playing, i think he gets it done.

I don't either. They shouldn't trade Tyreke Evans, in my opinion.

SAC is stupid for playing him all of the place and not letting him settle into a specific position.

If he goes to Chicago AND they get Drummond, that will be such a nasty team with D-Rose gets back.

because they'd have 3 point guards and a shooting guard. minutes distribution would be horrible. they need either a SF (MKG or Barnes) or if they're both gone, they need a PF (Robinson or Henson).

also, Tyreke will definitely be moved, which I think he should be. he's an SG and they have Thornton for 3 more years (i think) and he's better. If they can get a true small forward for him, I'd be thrilled. not interested in Deng, though, or in them trading the 5th pick.

I don't consider Jimmy Fredette a point guard. He's a two guard in the NBA.

If they acquire Joakim Noah and swap picks, I don't see anything wrong with them bringing in another guard.

Jimmer is truly one of the worst defenders I've ever watched - if he's gonna be a 2 guard he better figure out how to guard them first

i'd rather them get Barnes or Robinson at 5 and keep that pick. no need to trade the pick with Tyreke. they can get a decent pick and/or player for Tyreke while keeping their 5th pick. no reason at all to trade it.

Sadly yes

LeBron is just too good of a defender on KD. KD is running to half court just to make the catch. He's gonna have to find a way to get more open looks

And with Harden struggling like he is Russ is gonna need to dominate again

Really good statistical analysis of the many wing prospects in this year's draft.

I think Robinson will be Charlotte's pick, so they'll likely choose between two Tar Heels - Barnes and Henson...unless they go with Drummond.

I'd rather have a piss poor defender on a 2 than on a point guard, especially in a division with Steph Curry and CP3.

I wouldn't trade Noah for Tyreke. Deng makes sense though.

Miami will finish it tonight.

he would get abused by any 2 guard in the league. and if CHA takes Robinson, I would love the Kings to take Barnes. I'd like MKG more than anyone, but he won't be there. I'd like Barnes over anyone else.
