View Full Version : Calipari: Tyreke, Wall Could be Good for Kings

But could Wall and Evans coexist on the floor? Calipari says yes.

"They're not the prototypical point guards, but they're both point guards with their ability to make plays," Calipari said. "Defensively, (the Kings are) much better; offensively, (they're) much better. You can get easy goals."

The Kings have a chance slim as it is to land the No. 1 pick at the NBA draft lottery May 18 because they had the third-worst record this season. Yet, after taking Evans fourth overall last year, selecting another guard with similar skills might seem redundant.

Personally, I would find it redundant to draft a player with similar set of skills as your best player.

If you were the kings and you got the 1st overall pick, would you do it?

I would select Wall. His trade value is enormous.

Oh my god. No kidding. Being one of the best players to come out of college for this years draft. John Wall could be "good" for a lot of teams.

All you have to do is move Tyreke in the SG position and there you go!
It's gonna be like Ellis with Curry

whatever team has the #1 pick should draft john wall. i don't care if your team has chris paul or williams. wall is a freak athlete. and he will be an all star soon.

if the kings got wall, evans would make the transition to sg rather easily. he has the prototypical size and strength of an nba sg. the kings should not pass on wall if they get that chance.

Draft Wall. If it doesn't work out as planned then it will be easy to trade him. Teams will be lining up for this guy.

Oh really Calipari Wall COULD be good for the Kings? A Wall / Evans backcourt would be deadly.

**** a position, Tyreke will be one of two guards in the Kings backcourt.

I honestly feel that if anyone would take Evan Turner over John Wall its Geoff Petrie..

Don't be so sure. Look at Beasley. It's hard to know if the player is a bust or simply in a wrong system. If Kings get #1 pick, I'd look to ship it. Especially in this free agency where there are ample opportunities. Maybe Lebron decides to leave and it would be a great consolation prize for Cavs. Or for Bosh, who knows.
However, if they are unable to ship it, you still have to go Wall.

If they did get the 1st over all pick, they'd have to decided who they wanted running the point more, and then make a trade accordingly.

Like the year after the Magic landed Shaq, they got the number one pick and could have landed Webber (which i still think they should have because that would have given them perhaps the best center/power-forward combo since Chamberlain/Baylor). But they though: lets trade our number one pick to the Warriors for their number two pick and a host of other picks.

that traded laned them penny hardaway, who was the best big PG since Magic and would have been amazing had he stayed healthy and Shaq stayed in the Magic kingdom.

But I'm not sure its such a great idea unless one of them will be playing shooting guard. Look at how the Warriors are doing with two great point guards (though it may be better to describe them as two shooting guards in point guard's bodies).

Trade one of the other and package them up with one of their promising young front court players for a big that has established himself and is young along with some draft picks of their own.
