Sanity prevails!!! When you have the number one pick, don’t think too hard, don’t worry about fit, just take the best player
Smith was the best by far. So much for sanity.
He says the same thing on every draft thread he’s a troll
This draft is so trash. The lack of talent even at the top is noticeable
It’s deep, just not stacked at the top. Very unimpressive at the top, actually.
Smith was the only stud in this draft. Houston has a bright future.
Smith is far from a stud. Chet is the stud.
I like Ivey more than Chet, Jabari Smith and Murray
Lakers tank for Pelicans 8th pick
Westbrook help Pelicans to get 8
I hope there’s more to that Hornets trade than the Hornets only receiving a future 1st rounder from Detroit!
They got 4 second rd picks also
It’s a little bit early but you know what.., I would love the Warriors to pick Arkansas’ Jaylin Williams. I think he would be so perfect for them and what they do.
Great size, mobile, and smart. The guy is a great basketball player. Can shoot a little, can block shots a little, I think he would be awesome for them.
Dalen Terry will be the best player in this draft
At least 54 and 55 will still have Teams picking,
How did Cockburn not get drafted. He worked out for like every team lol also notables not drafted Ron Harper Jr, Scotty Pippen Jr, Shareef O’Neal. Talented fathers don’t alway lead to nba level offspring unfortunately
It appears Shareef will be with the lakers for summer league.
Pippen is also their two way player, but still. Likely won’t translate to an nba role, but hey maybe they end up being Gary Payton II who knows
Wow, we talked about him a few weeks ago here when he was mentioned in an article. I think several posters agreed Kofi Cockburn was not a guy who is going to be a successful nba player.
I think Kofi has a chance at the nba level. He reminds me of a Naz Reid type player
Hope to see him in summer league see how he does. Hard worker so hopefully does well.
Reid can step out and shoot, and more mobile on perimeter. Kofi ain’t it
True. Cockburn has no outside game at all. And against tougher big men he folded last season. He’s not ready for prime time and should’ve stayed at Illinois another season.
Naz Reid famously played on the perimeter at LSU, to a fault. You’re judging players like you go by photos of them.
He doesn’t play much on the perimeter in the pros though. They have similar size and defensive abilities. Neither needs to be a huge scorer. It’s not their roles. I’m not saying he’s gonna be a star. But I think I’m a few years and with some g league seasoning he could carve out a nice role as a bench guy
Per 36′, Reid takes 5 threes, makes 35%, and scores 19. Look it up.
Your knowledge is superficial to appearance, wow, and lacks evidence. Nobody drafted him. Get it? Experienced staffs with jobs on the line, not scaredy-cats.
One why so angry lol two taking 5 threes and making 30 percent isn’t exactly lighting the world on fire. Naz belongs down low. Just like cockburn.
Pretty sizable difference between 30 and 35% that you just ignored. Naz is a streaky shooter, but certainly more capable than most role-playing forwards. He most certainly doesn’t belong down low – too small for the 5, too slow to be in the game as a 4.
Harper jr got a two day deal
I would have taken Agbaji. Strongly believe he’s going to be an all star.
Seems Knicks are loading up to go after vets not picks. Which smells like Thibs. I just hope Randle is a goner. Or Thibs will be walking with him.
I hope you’re right about Okoro, now. I had a feeling Altman would like him, like with Okoro and partly, Sexton, perhaps more the favorite of Gilbert & James. Mobley and Garlend were consensus picks at the time. Agnaji is pretty basic but smart at least.
kenneth lofton jr to new orleons. zions backup.
Trevor Keels huh ?????
Been watching his tapes. Tough kid plays both ways. I can see why they took him. Got an NBA body already.
I like Keels in the 2nd. I could see him being a player. Has a bit of Brunson in him IMO
At this point nba needs to make a rule that every team gets a pair of brothers. You got the balls, the plumlees, the jones, the mobleys, the morris, the porters, the gasols if unretired, the martins, and I’m sure there’s many more I’m forgetting. It would make a nice storyline lol. I also would like to see MJ play for the hornets on a 10 day contract if they are out of playoff contention, but alas it will always just be a dream
The Lopez bros, Holliday bros, Steph and Seth, Wiggins has a brother in the league named Aaron, Keegan Murray even has a twin named Kris haha. Just to add a couple off the top haha.
If you are going to include Murry than you should include Davis from UW as well. Then there is that MVP and his brothers.
Wiggins has a brother in The League? News to me.
Wiggins does not have a brother in the league
‘Stealth move by the magic’ per Woj lol they had the #1 overall pick. If they were smart they would have just traded down and taken him at 3.
The overall difference between the top 3 is so small that the haul received from trading down one or two spots is worth it.
This year, I think it is arrogant to be so sure one is so much better than the other, that a GM could turn down that potential haul.
But, every year, if there are such ties, GMs are that arrogant.
