    At #2, I'd feel comfortable taking Bagley in most situations. I think he'll learn to shoot, and his ability to get on the rim and finish with 2nd efforts will translate. He should be a great pick-and-roll guy.

    I just think the way the league is going, a big has to really run the floor. Failing to get back in transition is a big weakness. Ayton is a good athlete, but asking him to run hard all night may be too much. He's built like Patrick Ewing. I like JJJ as much as Ayton for the modern game.

    This summer we actually can offer cap relief for them... pretty good fit as trade partners... I wonder if they will take our calls.

    Probably. We need some extra talent. Something could work for fair value if you don't believe in history.

    Kings could trade the pick, they dont have a 1st in 2019 maybe if a team will give theirs up theyll trade down. That could be one of the silver linings of these results.

    Not if you have a new European coach who wants to run a European system.

    Outside shot, but Utah may sneak into the lottery. Not sure for who, but there may be another player who tickles DL's fancy. We have our picks and ungs and we can develop players. Just a thought.

    Ok. Cool. Who is guarding the Harden/Westbrook/CP3/Curry/Mitchell/Dame etc of the world for them if they take Doncic?

    Geez dude. They aren't a finished product just because they take Doncic. Look at all the wings Ainge has collected, so you wouldnt take Tatum because you have Brown?

    If PHX knew they could get Capela it'd increase their chances at taking Doncic #1. The hole on their depth chart at C seems ideal for Ayton to come in and grab boards from day 1 at.

    Maybe Cleveland woukd be willing to trade their pick. If they want a chance to keep Lebron they need to. Not sure what we would have to offer other than cap relief.

    You take Ayton with the first pick if you want Doncic you deal for him in exchange for future picks. I'd still take Ayton over anyone in this draft.

    The Knicks have more incentive to trade their pick. I think they are serious LeBron contenders. At least they think they are.

    Dumping Noah gives them a shot. #9 is no guarantee. If you are NY, a shot at LBJ is worth it. If they strike out, They they have cap space in 2019.

    I don't know why I agree that this could be a thing and the reasons behind it, but I do. In that scenario, do the Jazz put themselves in position, and is there anyone in that range worth the insane price-tag?
