#6 + BOYD


I'm not sure if this is possible with our cap situation or with the lockout looming but there's a lot of talk about packaging #6 with guys like Blatche to move up in the draft.  I think most of us would like to get in the top 3 like we were hoping for tonight.  Is a more reasonable way to achieve this with the BOYD strategy?

Looking at the rosters of the 3 teams holding the top 4 picks, I've come up with the following targets.

Utah - Mehmet Okur 1 year remaining at 9.9 million

Cleveland - Daniel Gibson 2 years remaining at 4 million, Ramon Sessions 2 years remaining at 4 million.  Sessions is clearly the better player but I think Cleveland would be willing to move either if they decide to draft Kyrie Irving.  Baron Davis isn't going anywhere any time soon.

Minnesota - Martell Webster 2 years remaining at 4.8 million.  The team I think is the most likely trade partner has the least to offer from a BOYD stand point.  The reason I think Minny is likely to deal because neither Williams or Kanter will fit in seamlessly with Love at the 4.  I think they'd prefer to get Irving or move down for some value.

My personal choice would definitely be Okur for a number of reasons.  He's the only expiring deal, he could be a big capable of spreading the floor for Wall, and he could provide a Turkish teammate for a possible Turkish rookie taken with the new pick.

Any thoughts?
