In response to rameakap's comment:
Not very bright are you?
How could I contradict myself saying I would prefer Saric over Randle for this team when I simply state Saric would be a steal at #17?
Are you incapable of following simple logic?
I would take Gordon, Smart and Vonleh over Saric (in that order) but I am not high on Randle at all. An undersized PF with Antoine's body, no left hand and not as big an upside as people think. He is so redundant with Sully there is no way I want him over a future Turkoglu in Saric.
Of course you would draft Doug McBuckets over Vonleh, Saric, Randle and Gordon so we'll forgive you for not having a clue about the abilities, value and talent of the players in this draft.
You're the one who's not very bright.
No team will pick Saric ahead of Julius Randle.
Wanna bet on it?
I bet you that there is a greater chance the Celtics add Saric to this team than draft Randle.
It does not matter if he is drafted before him, it matter if he is the better fir for this team.
Danny can pass on Randle, trade down, another team takes Randle, the C's still get Saric later on, and I would be right, get it?
It is all about value and fit.
Saric fits on this club
Randle does not.
But since more teams would draft Randle in the 6-9 range over Saric there is more value in trading that pick and moving down. I would draft Saric ahead of Randle, but not if the Hornets want to draft Randle at #6 and trade us #9 and #24 for the right to do that and we can still get Saric 9th.
I'll bet you Saric has a greater chance of being a Celtic than Randle. If the C's have Saric on this team, regardless of draft position, you leave this board for the rest of 2013. If they have Randle on this team I will leave for the rest of 2013.
