Just curious, if we miraculously get the 2nd, 3rd, or 4th pick, would you stand pat and use the talent that slips, or would you try to trade up? 

 

If trade up, what do you think might get it done?

I often say I don't know much about college hoop prospects and this year is no different but... with the sheer volume of energy around Zion, I don't see any possibility that one could trade up to #1 using a lower pick.  It would be tantamount to somoene having moved NOP off of AD.  I think the more realistic question is, if you land the 2-4, do you use that to trade back and offload one of the vaunted unloadable contracts we have to acquire someone of high value (along the lines of what GSW is getting at).

Not a college guy either, but Ja and RJ seem like fantastic hauls if you can't get Zion. Don't know beyond that.

 

Obviously, if you can get an all-star caliber player for one of those picks, then it's worth trading.

I agree man. I was stoked on Barret but now I’m not really sure. But definitely after 3, there is a huge drop off.
