This might be a stupid thread but i'm very bored. Anyone here think that BC is overrated on his drafting ability? He seems to pick good players at the positions he has been given but often fails to make any draft day trades. Moving up a spot or two in the last couple of drafts could have made a tremendous difference. (ex: Last draft, he said that teams wanted too much to move up. I'm sure it depends on who he was dealing with. I imagine that we could have traded with Kings for their 5th pick by not giving them much in return, since they obviously weren't that interested in Robinson. We could have got Lillard in return. (granted- i'm sure four other teams ahead of Portland would have picked him if they knew how good he would be. But still, shouldn't a exceptional talent evaluator GM know this?
I don't know. I realize that BC is actually decent at drafting players at the spots he gets. But he never trades up in the draft, and this seems rather strange since trading up is such a common thing. Especially when you have GM's who aren't sold on any one individual player, or are willing to trade a couple of spots up since they know their number one option would still be available.
