Poll: 2005 NBA Draft Take Two (Pick No. 6)

Drafting players is far from an exact science, and many a GM has been second-guessed for his draft night decisions. While life, and the NBA, doesn’t often allow for second chances, we at Hoops Rumors believe it’s fun to give our readers a second take at picking players, complete with the benefit of hindsight.

We’ve previously tackled the 2003 and 2013 NBA Drafts and the next one we’re tackling is 2005’s, the year that the Bucks nabbed big man Andrew Bogut with the No. 1 overall pick. That year’s draft class is generally viewed as one of the weaker ones in recent memory, though, there were quite a few second-rounders that year (Ersan Ilyasova, Monta Ellis, Lou Williams, Amir Johnson and Marcin Gortat) who have gone on to have very solid NBA careers.

In the weeks ahead, we’ll be posting a series of reader polls that ask you to vote on the player whom you believe should have been selected with each pick. We’ll continue onward with the Trail Blazers, who held the No. 6 pick that season. Readers, you are now on the clock! Cast your vote for Portland’s pick and check back Monday night for the results, as well as for your chance to vote for whom the Raptors should have taken at No. 7. But don’t limit yourself to a simple button click. Take to the comments section below and share your thoughts on the pick and why you voted the way that you did. Also, if I fail to list a player who you think should be selected, feel free to post that in the comments section and I’ll be certain to tally those votes as well.

Selections

  1. Bucks — Chris Paul [Actual Pick — Andrew Bogut]
  2. Hawks — Deron Williams [Actual Pick — Marvin Williams]
  3. Jazz — Monta Ellis [Actual Pick — Deron Williams]
  4. Hornets/Pelicans — Andrew Bogut [Actual Pick — Chris Paul]
  5. Bobcats/Hornets — Danny Granger [Actual Pick — Raymond Felton]
  6. Trail Blazers  — ? [Actual Pick  — Martell Webster]
