    The obvious pick for Orlando @ 6 is Trae Young. But I'm 98% sure they'll draft Kevin Knox or some ****.

    The BK pick turned out to be exactly where projections mid-season and on put it.

    You leveraged your future and said F Bron for the #8 pick. :emoji_middle_finger: Gilbert. He'll definitely be looking to sell when Bron bolts again. Probably go back and focus on destroying whatever's left of Detroit middle class. :lol:

    Knox didn't stand out hard at UK but dude has a very polished offensive game that will translate to the pros well IMO. Trae Young obviously had a historic year and does a lot of things very well but don't knock the kid Knox yet

    I don’t see how they could’ve gotten much more for a disgruntled star demanding a trade (and only to certain teams).

    Perhaps they should have done their due diligence on the IT injury, but getting All-NBA talent and the unprotected pick of the reigning worst team isn’t a bad haul given their situation. Add in a rotation player in Crowder, I can’t see what else was realistic.

    I’d you look now and see Irving and #25 for Hill, Nance, Hood, Clarkson, Zizic, and #8.... it looks wretched. But at the time, it could have worked. They COULD have gotten a premier scorer/ballhandler and a top pick in a deep draft.

    Obviously if LeBron stays that pick is getting traded, so they better pick wisely if they have to wait until the summer for his decision.

    I don't think there's any way the Kings pass on Doncic.

    If their smart they move Ross and Vucci...Ross sucks and Vucci Mane is a better fit getting buckets for some playoff team ...other than Gordon/Isaac/Fournier, the team has nothin...everybody else isnt good or arent long term options

    Hawks seem to be ditching Schroeder this summer.

    Have a feeling they are going to swing for the fences and take my guy Trae.

    Trae at 6 is the best case scenario for Orlando, they have to swing for the fences and hope he ends up an elite player and just give him the keys from the jump.
