But I thought at least I will be able to draft Batum. Samo snatched him right before me. As a Portland fan, I can tell you the kid has real talent and is a big part of Portland's future. I'm sure he will have a good year and outperform here.
I took Robin because of his upside here. He could have 6-7th round value. A few other very deserving players that might have been better choices. Also, somewhat likely he could have been available at 10.04 for me. Any thoughts on Lopez this year?
I was agonizing over him and Okafor with my pick. I'm really high on Lopez, just didn't think he was a good fit for my team, that back injury is concerning and I already had Blatche, having 2 bigs returning from injury with question marks is too much, had to play it safe. Your bigs are pretty established/safe, he's worth the gamble for you. Frye played better at center than PF whenever I saw him.
I think he'll have a good season if his back holds up though, they have zero inside presence without Amare, need someone for the pick and roll. The Suns are deep everywhere but traditional centers.
