    The Knicks need all of the T-Wolves picks to do anything worth talking about.

    But IMO, we take Flynn if he's there... That kid can flat out play...
    I agree with Flynn!

    Flynn is more durable, maybe better shooter?

    And Cleveland again would lose to Orlando. Cleveland needs athletic wing players with some size.

    More durable maybe as Lawson has had injury issues but Lawson is a better shooter. Lawson shot 47% from 3 last year, Flynn 32%.

    If the 2 are healthy they really aren't that close.

    Some recent mocks have Minny taking Flynn 5 or 6.

    BAP at 8 - whether it be Evans or Curry.

    Please no trade up for Rubio the scrawny 17 year old who is allergic to defense.

    Rubio (an 18 yr old):
    • Led the Spanish ACB League in steals (2007, 2009)
    • Spanish ACB League Defensive Player of the Year (2009)


    -------------

    A big +1 to a post by "mafra" from knicksonline.com: (http://www.knicksonline.com/forums/s...ead.php?t=6490)

    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.

    Rubio (Duhon)
    Miller (Henderson)
    Chandler (Harrington)
    Danilo (Wilcox & Gibson)
    Darko (Gortat & Curry)

    Introduce Lebron James & Chris Bosh for 2010:

    Rubio (Duhon)
    Chandler (Henderson)
    James (Harrington)
    Danilo (Gibson)
    Bosh (Gortat & Darko)

    Solid post and I would be THRILLED if that was to happen. It's going to be an interesting night and next couple weeks. I have faith in Walsh.
