    Default 2009 Draft: How will the Knicks Blow it this time?

    All I'm saying is if we Draft Chase Budinger, I will stop watching The Knicks forever

    I'm expecting the Knicks to waste their pick. It's what they do best. I expect them to avoid drafting a center or shooting guard(the positions the Knicks are currently weakest in) for another small forward or point guard.

    Id rather have Ty Lawson over Stephen Curry. We will blow it if we dont trade up the draft! Although Rubio may turn out to be the next Fredric Weiss! Id like to see us get hold of James Harden, we desperately need a decent SG and i think he can be a good fit in mikes system.

    Anyone thought about hasheem Thabeet? we could do with a big shot blocker..

    Wouldn't say a PG is a waste, if we're going to get rid of one of our current ones that is, or play Nate at SG. That being said it would have to be a PG with some serious skill and potential as there's no point piling on yet another average PG to this team.

    Sure an SG would be ok, I still like Chandler playing SG if he can improve his shooting touch a bit, his size and speed are ideal for the position whereby he can overpower the majority of SGs.

    As for Center, who do you suggest? Is there really anyone worth using the 8 pick on who can play C?

    Get a SG in the draft somehow and trade for a C.

    Eddy Curry? maybe the fat **** can lose some weight this summer!!! Id like to see us make a move for camby.

    Trade the 8th pick + Eddy Curry for an expiring contract.

    More salary cap space >>>> anybody available at #8.

    Trading the 8th pick for an old banged up Camby is not smart. Sure I'd like to have him back on the Knicks but not for the 8th pick. As for Thabeet, he won't drop to 8th, no way.

    they need to have the jazz on the phone.if donnie doesn't have the shot at getting somebody he really wants, give the pick to utah; so just in case we suck next year, we'll have a better shot at a player in a much loaded draft.

    can't trade the pick unless we get a pick in next year's draft

    Plus your point about no game changer being at the 8 spot will likely be the reason no team takes Eddy Curry just to have the number 8 pick

    Those names you just mentioned is the reason why it would probably be impossible for the knicks to be able to make a trade for a potential lottery pick next year. Utah would never trade us back the 2010 pick.

    No worries. We will stink so badly the next season so we will have a 80% chance of getting the #1 pick.

    sorry leflume, its a good positive attitude, but not going to happen.

    Utah has the knicks pick next year and it is impossible to have an 80% chance at the 1st pick. Even if you go 0-82 the highest is a 25% chance at 1st pick.
