Like the celtics taking Jaylen Brown. Felt it was the guy that fit best with what they have. If he improves his shot, he can be a star. Should be able to contribute as a defender right away. Similar to Winslow, who they obviously loved…still, I wonder about passing on Dunn, when you have other picks later in the draft to look for a 3 and D guy, even with the fit on the current roster

Yeah Dunn would’ve been nice to flip him to Sixers as Sixers did to Magic a couple years ago.

Brown was over-drafted but there was such a significant talent drop off after picks 1

He was a slight reach and I agree that after Simmons/Ingram there wasn’t a clear cut player to go #3. Dunn/Murray probably make the most sense, but Boston doesn’t really need another guard (and are looking for pieces to help them win) so it makes sense to reach on a player who fits need rather than best available.

Amazing that Kris Dunn fell to Minnesota. Sort of fitting with one of the guys I compare him to lol. Tough choice for them at that point. Murray probably fit them best, but I would wish he’d be a better defender than he is. Dunn is elite in that area. That team should be amazing moving forward. Trade Rubio for a shooter lol…

Hield was obvious for new orleans. They desperately need shooting, especially on the wing

Ibaka traded to Magic for Oladipo, Ilyasova, and rights to Sabonis.

Can’t believe Milwaukee is taking another gamble like this. Thought Baldwin would be a perfect fit

Holy $#&@!!!!! Ibaka fits great in orlando, but can’t believe they traded Oladipo. I don’t know how to feel about this for okc though. They get Oladipo and Sabonis, but I don’t like the idea of trading Ibaka. Have to see what they do later

Prince to Atlanta makes sense. Likely didn’t want to let a 3 and D guy go to someone else who liked him. With Sabonis and Poeltl off the board, it’s a good fit
