I really hope of they trade some of these picks it is a for vet player.

Please no trading number ones for future picks or for drafting a stash guy we will never see.

I hope they just draft players and see if they can strike gold.

Yes, surely don't want to trade picks for vets. What's the point in that?

It could mean they try to trade into a future draft.  It’s hard to get enough minutes for three rookies on what you hope to be a competitive team to even see if you can strike gold on one.  I think two firsts is the optimal number, and I’d prefer to turn one of these into a future pick to get two in that season as well.

I'm all about trading at least one pick for one in a future draft - like several years in the future if possible. The Clippers pick we have this year is a product of trading two 2nd round picks during the Yabusele draft.

If we use another pick to trade for a useful player (in conjunction with another contract), that would work, too...although we don't have too many extra contracts.

If we only get one pick in this draft, I will be okay with it (not including the 2nd rounder); two is fine; three would not be fine.

If they only pick one guy that tells me guys like Yabu and Semi are still going to be around.

Not sure either are really rotation players (I know Yabu is not. He really is pointless).

What I hope is they are shipped out as filler in a trade for a vet.

My preferences are for Yabu to be elsewhere. I have no problem packaging him and a pick for someone on the late part of their rookie deal that still can grow but can contribute some now. Yabu is useless.

In that scenario, I have no problem bringing in 2 rookies for roster slots 14 and 15. But if Yabu remains, I only want one rookie on the team. Those last three slots should be for players you don't expect to contribute so best use it on players to develop that you can have regularly in Maine.

I think Williams is one of those players so the other two can be two rookies or Yabu and one rookie. I in no way want to see Yabu, Williams and 3 rookies, plus a couple of two way players on this team next year.

If Woj says it, it's probably accurate. Doubt they want him back anyways.

If you're planning on being a competitive team, your reserves can't be young guys who might give you a decent effort one night and nothing the next two.  You need veteran role players with skills you can rely on who accept their role and perform it consistently.   Too many guys on that bench right now are just taking up space - Yabu being one of them.  Wasted pick.

Laughable...Not your post but this guy has never panned out and I doubt they get it.

I think that's to a certain extent true, but not entirely. I definitely agree with you that Yabu is a complete waste of a roster spot, and the faster we can offload him the better.

But teams like the Clippers are a good example of a healthy balance between youth and experience, which is the route I'd like to see us go
