Hello good citizens of PtR. I've conducted a review of the 2008 draft. Here's the Spurs' section:
Review: The Spurs had an outstanding draft. People rave about Hill as a player. He can create his own shot, he has three-point range, he’s a good finisher, and a good defender. He’s only an average passer for a point guard, but he was easily the best overall point guard available in the draft.
Since the Spurs never originally had Goran Dragic, in net, the Spurs couldn’t have lost him. Instead, he’s a conduit for a pair of other trades, trades that essentially landed DeJuan Blair and Malik Hairston for Giorgos Printezis. Getting the rebounding machine Blair, plus an NBA 12th man in Hairston, for a player who may never play in the league is an absolute steal.
