what type of players are we hoping for in the draft tomorrow? big wings big wings who can shoot would be my preference.... Maybe a sneaky slider like Brandon Clarke?

If Bol Bol slipped he would be a great long term big man prospect.

It just had to be a European with our 1st pick... If the Pacers hadn't done it 1 pick before, we would have drafted Goga Bitadze instead.

yeah, here's hoping our new Euro turns out to be Dirk!!

The Pop era of Euro's we've drafted;

2015 - Nikola Milutinov - Yet to play NBA, Spurs still hold his rights
2013 - Livio Jean-Charles - Never Played NBA
2011 - Adam Hanga - Never Played NBA
2011 - Davis Bertans(Drafted by Pacers) - 200+ NBA Games and still active
2010 - Ryan Richards - Never Played NBA
2009 - Nando de Colo - Played 120 NBA games
2008 - Goran Dragic - Traded on draft night for Malik Hairston and future 2nd round pick, played 750+ NBA games and still active
2007 - Tiago Splitter - NBA champion with Spurs
2007 - Giorgos Printezis - Never Played NBA
2006 - Damir Markota - Traded for future 2nd round pick, played 30 NBA games
2005 - Ian Mahinmi - Played 600+ NBA games and still active
2004 - Beno Udrih - Played 800+ NBA games
2004 - Sergei Karaulov - Never Played NBA
2003 - Leandro Barbosa - Traded for future 1st
2002 - Luis Scola - Traded for Vassillis Spanoulis and a 2009 2nd rounder
2001 - Tony Parker - NBA Champion with Spurs and All NBA
2001 - Robertas Javtokas - Never Played NBA
1999 - Manu Ginobili - NBA Champion with Spurs and All NBA

It's quite good considering all picks are late 1st round or 2nd round.

Still would have loved Brandon Clarke or Nassir Little but here's hoping our new Euro can bring his game to the NBA

Not a bad day for us with Gay coming back on a 2yr contract and Carroll is a decent addition at the price.

Big's (Centre/PF): Aldridge, Poeltl, Metu
Big wings (SF/PF): Gay, Bertans, Carroll, Samanic
Wings (SG/SF): DeRozan, Belinelli, Forbes, Walker, Johnson
Ball carriers (PG/SG): Murray, White, Mills

that takes us to 15 active players and around $121M in cap by my count which pretty much rounds out spots, might be a couple of two-way contracts up for grabs but that will be it.

If Murray comes back healthy and with the year of development for White this year we should see DeRozan back in his off the ball scoring role he played at the Raptors.

Think Lonnie Walker is ready for a big year too.

While we don't have a real elite level guard just yet, we bat incredibly deep.

Derozan (G/F)
Murray
Mills
Forbes
White
Walker

Teams are going to have hard time when they have to rest their starters against us.
