I predict plan-A for Walsh is: Get Rubio, draft another TWO first rounders. I would think a SG and a PF/C would be the other options.
I do sense a Rubio-Lee trade happening in 2 weeks. Lee would be perfect for OKC. They wanted Tyson Chandler, but he wasn't healthy enough. I doubt they revisit it.... DAVID LEE would be the answer. With Durant, Green & Westbrook, they could use Lee to do the dirty work.... rebound and play the pick-&-roll. Lee & Nenad Krstic would lay C for them.
I just wonder if we would have to draft someone later in the first round, say another G to send along with Lee? Who knows.
SO.... Knicks will shoot for Rubio; hope Hill, Curry or Evans slips to them at 8, if not they'll grab Gerald Henderson or Terrence Williams. Then, they'll look to fill the other need later in the draft- if they get hill, maybe they shoot for Mcclinton or Buddinger.... or if they get a SG at 8, they'll target Hetvelt, Daye or Gibson.
In Summary, here's PLAN-A:
Rubio for David Lee
draft Hill or Curry, Evans or Henderson, Williams
draft Mcclinton or buddinger (if HIll was selected) or Daye, Hetvelt, Gibson
Trade Q-Rich for Darko.... sign Gortat.... Deal Hughes & Jeffries for Mike Miller & James.
Danilo (Wilcox & Gibson)
Darko (Gortat & Curry)
