Assuming that the Wolves don't trade the 16th pick, where should we go with the pick?
Let's assume that some of the following players will be available(obviously some will get taken earlier, but some will slide) what's the order of preference?
Donatas Motiejunas, Xavier Henry, Avery Bradley, Hassan Whiteside, Ekpe Udoh, Patrick Patterson, James Anderson, Paul George, Daniel Orton, Luke Babbitt, Gordon Hayward, Damion James (These are the most frequent names in the 10-20 range on most mock drafts.)
Xavier Henry should be the target. What's not to like about a legit 6'6" SG with an NBA body, with legitimate NBA jump shooting ability? The complaint was he's not a creator with the ball, but he was forced to play this way with Collins monopolizing the ball. Plus, he's a freshman. At worst, he ends up as Anthony Parker, but clearly has more upside.
Last on the list to me...Damion James....What is the upside to a 6'7" Power Forward in a Small Forwards Body, with no outside shooting ability?
