Many people were surprised by our franchise's decision not to make any selections in the 2014 NBA draft, especially with all the talent and depth available in this year. I believe that this decision was a smart move by the front office. We had already given our first and second round picks away in negotiations from earlier, so we would have had to make trades to even be able to draft someone since we weren't given a lottery pick this year. It is a new era for Rip City, we are a very good basketball team, and I'm confident in our front office. I'm excited for what the future holds for our team, and I think we're heading into a season where we are going to shock some people.
