I think the draft went well. I didn't think much would happen. This draft didn't really have any elite talent I don't think. Some very good players, but not best at their respective positions talent. Trading Lowry or Derozan for any of the players in this draft would be lateral at best. Might as well keep the playoff streak going. Continue to cultivate a winning culture.

Re: 2015 Draft | Raps pick Delon Wright & Norman Powell

anyone have an idea why we passed on bobby portis, a well sized pf at 6"11 240 some compared to monroe, would of given us the rebound and low post threat we need to replace amir and we could of made us a balanced team that would cut down the run n gun to a more half court where there would be some balance.
Vasq at times was just to streaky and a 9 mill to much, i rather pay 7-8 to lou over 3 years who knows maybe we will make a run at love or monroe

Who knows .... With ears to the ground, Ujiri might have another PF in mind. Same play at several positions, release the current player (Vasquez, Amir, Ross) then sign/trade a better fitting piece. He's got time and cap space to work with so let's see ....

Portis isn't a great defender, he also doesn't rebound on the defensive end at the rate he should. Those are huge holes for a big man, especially one that we need to play next to Valanciunas.

I like Wright. I really like Powell.

We're going to be able to play defense and have guys on the court that aren't afraid to attack the rim. Our team was full of weakness last year, we seem to be addressing that.

Sooo Ujiri and the Raps have decided to hold talks and target Aldrige. Now I don't expect we'll get him, nor do I like that we'll have to get rid of LouWills in a salary dump to get him (I'm ok with losing Amir.. He's been a fantastic ambassador for the city but we all need to move on) but what raises my eyebrows is the fact that we're swinging for the fences here!! Full tilt home run NOW!! You gotta like that and what Ujiri might also be planning when this doesn't work out ;-)

Aldridge would be good in the sense that he is a scorer in the post that we lacked. However it might stunt Jonas' development and continue to not feed him.. But I like trying to win.

If we can get Aldridge, unlikely as it might be, Jonas' development takes a total backseat. If Jonas can be a big body to plug the paint on defense he's doing his job. This team still can't shoot though, which will continue to be a big time detriment.
