Pacific Notes: Wiseman, Warriors, Sarver, Clippers

The Warriors have already met with some prominent draft prospects via Zoom, including center James Wiseman and guard LaMelo Ball, Anthony Slater of The Athletic tweets. Wiseman is currently rated at No. 3 by ESPN with Ball at No. 2, just behind Georgia guard Anthony Edwards. With the draft rescheduled to October 15th, the Warriors anticipate they’ll get to evaluate prospects in person at some point.

We have more from the Pacific Division:

  • With the Warriors left out of the 22-team restart of the season, Draymond Green stands to benefit the most among the franchise’s players, Slater opines in a separate story. Green had been nursing a variety of injuries prior to the suspension of play and now he’ll get plenty of time to heal up prior to next season. Young players such as Eric Paschall, Jordan Poole, Alen Smailagic and Mychal Mulder will be hurt the most by the long gap between seasons, Slater adds.
  • Suns owner Robert Sarver says there are many hurdles to clear before play can resume in Orlando on July 31, according to Matt Layman of ArizonaSports.com. Sarver made his comments in a radio interview with 98.7 FM. “The logistics with Disney — you know a number of these hotels have had layoffs, have been partially closed or fully closed, and so there’s a re-startup there,” he said. “And then there’s the whole health concern with COVID-19 and how that plays out and making sure that we go back to what our first priority was, which was the health and safety of the players and the staff.”
  • If the Clippers are able to re-sign free agents Marcus Morris and Montrezl Harrell, they’re likely to bring back virtually the same team next season, John Hollinger of The Athletic predicted in a conversation with fellow Athletic writer Jovan Buha. Hollinger believes in that scenario the only additions will be a second-round draft pick and a minimum-contract point guard to replace Reggie Jackson.

    JaMycal Green needs a long term contract

    If Lakers are able to dump the salary of Danny Green ,Lakers can offer him 4 years 40 million MLE

    • Simmons>Russ

      Worst suggestion yet. Green is a PF that can’t play SF or C really. The Lakers already have loads of bigs McGee Howard Morris AD Kuzma and big wing type players Dudley Bron and so on.
      The last thing they need is average PF on 10mil

    Kawhi and George want to build dynasty
    Trade idea
    Clippers get Chris Paul
    Thunder get Brown,JaMycal Green,
    Celtics get Harrell,McGruder

    • People don’t want to play with Chris Paul. He demands to control the ball and dribbles and dribbles and dribbles and dribbles. Then he dribbles some more.

      He’s fiery and he’s got one of the best winning attitudes I know of. He’s tremendous on defense effort wise and he’s just a dog out there. But no one wants to play with him. It’s his way or the highway.

      He did give a little with James Harden on the floor but that’s the last time and probably the first time you’ve seen Chris Paul run up the floor without the ball in his hands to start the play.

      • SuperSinker

        Man who has won nothing has one of the best winning attitudes you know of?

        • Absolutely. He requires 110% from all his teammates, because he gives 150%. He is one Fireball player who puts it on the line to win every single night. Except for his playing style of dribbling too much, every team would benefit from a fired-up, win-at-all-costs guy on your roster. That’s Chris Paul. You don’t see that the way I do?

          • i seen Chris Paul play and you must add he is one of the biggest cry babies in the NBA. Has he ever committed a foul in his mind? I doubt it. He can be a great player but to many times he lets emotions take over and acts like a child.

  3. KnickerbockerAl

    No one is trading for Paul. 2 yrs and 85 million left on contract. For a 35 yr old PG. you have to be legally insane to do it. Unless you have a player or two. That can match salary. That you don’t want or need. Why would any NBA team take Paul. Even if Thunder gave you a #1 pick. Which by all accounts are not willing to do.

  4. Sillivan

    Rumors show that your Knicks like Chris Paul.

    If Warriors or Hawks trade Ball to Suns or Pistons, Knicks take Chris Paul.

    Ricky Rubio can’t pass the ball any more.

    • El Don

      What on earth are you talking about Sillivan??? Rubio can’t pass the ball any more, so say his 9APG this seasons, boy try to get a single fact right for once dude, it is embarrassing!!!
