If only Sacto had taken Murray over Skal, they needed a PG, could have left the spurs to pick up Skal and he might have had a chance to be developed properly and be a real NBA player, don't trust Sacto at all to develop him into what he could be. Let alone that they have 50 big guys and no guards.

Phoenix and Denver did well, both pretty strong base's to form a good rotation around.
There's plenty of things the Denver org doesn't do well, but I feel drafting has been superb the last few years. Nice feeling confident going into it and particularly being optimistic about the euros where we seem to have an eye.

Early days sounds like we might be using Murray as a combo so:

Mudiay/Murray
Harris/Beasley
Gallinari/Chandler
Faried/Arthur
Jokic/Nurkic

Certainly a deep team, hopefully can get us enough success to attract that big fish we desperately need (or naturally one of the young guys can take the next step).

Do you think we will we try and move on one of those guys?

Can someone tell me, on draft night when a pick gets traded, who gets to take the pick? The former team or the new team?
I believe every trade has to be approved by the NBA, so the team that's receiving the pick will tell the team trading the pick who they want to draft. Obviously all sorts of stuff is signed beforehand
