Poll o' the day: Our Draft Pick

Discussion in 'Portland Trail Blazers' started by Rastapopoulos, May 21, 2020.

?

What would you do with the #14 (ish) pick?

  1. Stand pat and use the pick

    23.5%
  2. Bundle it with another asset (e.g. Simons) to move into the top 10

    5.9%
  3. Trade down for two lower picks (e.g. 26 and 30)

    5.9%
  4. Trade it for future pick(s)

    5.9%
  5. Trade it (possibly as part of a package) for a player

    58.8%

    What would you rather do? (Assume our pick is around #14.)

    I pick trade for two lower picks. I have the same feeling I had in CJ's draft that I like the players near the bottom of the first round more than the middle. (I wish I'd said I liked Giannis and Gobert, but in fact I wanted Dieng and Schröder.)

    Ha! I remember that. I also wanted Dieng over Gobert...and you responded it was the first time I ever said anything you agreed with! :cheers:

    On the question - I say Vassell or trade for a player who can offer some help to Dame now.

    Voted trade it for a player. I suppose as it gets closer, I'll research players and might like someone to draft, but as is, we have 4 intriguing prospects 22 and under in zach, trent, Simon's and little. Then you can throw in gabriel and Hoard if you're so inclined. I'd prefer moving it for a younger veteran if possible

    Didn't vote...depends for me.

    I'd make a small trade up for Vassell. Not sure I'd do it for Okoro. Would likely cost more and don't love the fit.

    If neither are there I'd look to trade down with either Boston or Dallas. Wing + Tillman would be my focus.

    Trade out for the right deal is definitely an option as well.
