Draft well...but lets look at those under the radar guys too




I was reading on the Suns site how they are looking to duplicate the steals they made last summer. I, along with many others, loved Bledsoe (though there were many who didnt)...and he has proven that he was worth the trade 10 times over. They stole Plumlee and Green... and look what happened.

As mentioned in the same site, one of the under the radar guys is Harrison Barnes. He has the potential, and can play small forward or PF if you want to go small-ball at times. He could be had for fairly reasonable cost IMO...but we would need to get rid of Wallace somehow.

Another guy is Alec Burks of Utah. This guy is a stud...can attack and score, and is 6'6 which allows him to play either guard spot. Corbin didnt play him as much as he should, and Utah may want to keep Hayward. Would love to make a play for him and Gobert, but not sure what we could give.

After years of feeling this, (and one year of Krook), I still think Anthony Randolph could be a flexible and cheap option behind a less athletic KO/Sully/Fav trio. The guy has been in the league like 6 years and is only 24. When he has played, he can be out of control at times, but the dude can run, handle the ball, score, and mixes it up in the paint. He has been stuck behind coaches favorites in both NY and Denver, but for less than 2 million per year, you would be hard pressed to find better potential with experience. I really feel he could do just what Gerald Green did if given a regular role.

Actually, if we were to have to make trades that might limit us on the wing, I would not mind having Jordan Crawford back as a bench scorer, because he could also play the point. If we were to trade Rondo we could make a play for Reggie Jackson (not so under the radar, but would be cheaper) in free agency. Jackson is not the overall player that Rondo is, but he gets to the rim and has a decent three point game enough to space the floor. The same could be said for Patty Mills.

If you had not noticed, all of these guys can play multiple positions...which I think should be way you look at rosters overall... especially at the wing. We saw first hand this year how mismatched and undersized can sometimes hinder game decisions and strategy. If nothing else, we stock our roster with useful, but cheaper, pieces that have had success...and you can capitalize on their potential in future trades. Just some thoughts.

Of course all of these thoughts are dependent upon draft and trades, which is so much speculation at this point.
