Side note: Reports are saying that the Magic are open to moving down in the draft if someone takes on one of their bad contracts. Apparently, they like 9 guys, so dropping down a few spots wouldn’t kill them. They owe Hedo Turkoglu 1 year and $12 million. Only $6 million is guaranteed, so Pelicans could make the trade, cut Hedo and have some dead money on the books for the 2nd year in a row. They also owe Al Harrington 2 years and 14.8 million. We have the cap space to absorb these contracts. Basically, the team will still have a little over 6 mil left in space if they were to take on these contracts. Could get creative and still drop down to 12 or 14 million to go after a Pekovic or Brandon Jennings if they wanted.
My question to you: Would you be willing to take on one of these contracts to move from #6 to #2?

This is how i see things: if we trade vasquez, they draft burke. if we dont trade vasquez we draft porter, bennent, or len
If only $6M of Turoglu's contact is guaranteed and then maybe, but what position do you draft for at 2?
- SF? Is Porter really that good?
- SG? What message do you send Gordon when you draft Oladipo?
- PG? What PG can you get at 2 that you can't get at 6?
- C? None are good enough.
- PF? Noel, if he is available is virtually a clone of AD. Why do we need both, and AD's offensive game is much better.
I'd take Turkey Glue's contract for the number 2 and draft Porter. I would do not play him a single game, and let our young players develop. Split all the SF minutes between Porter and Miller, ensuring they both get a ton of play time. And then have a good pick as well as money for next season.
I still think Al Harrington has enough in him to play. Plus he's a good Vet that could help out and teach everyone how to shoot threes lol
If Dell falls in love with a guy at #2 that has no chance of being there at #6, i'd be fine with taking Hedo's contract. We can either put in in a deal for a trade this year or let it expire and spend the money in next years FA. I just dont understand why Orlando would give away that expiring contract in a trade down.
