If Locke didn't say it then it doesn't matter... when it comes to the draft anyway.
Getting the bargain version of Niko in Bjelica would have been so damn good for us... address other needs with the big money.
Assuming we miss on Tobias and Middleton.. I think we may be better off going with a premium/pricey option at guard/wing and getting a stretch big on the cheap.
Would be nice to use our pick to get a producing guy that addresses those needs on a rookie deal. Only option I could think of was Taureen Prince and he's been hurt most of the year.
I think Utah with Allen because of the athletic upside.
Yeah my bad. Saw that too. Stupid ringer.

hitting 8 3s in a NBA game is pretty special. Allen honestly reminds me of Trey Lyles. Doesn't really have a NBA position(too short for shooting guards and lacks lateral quickness/court vision to play the point) and does not do one thing at NBA level. Except this time I don't think DL can throw him into a package to trade up in the draft.
or just draft DeAndre Hunter, if he ends up in our range. If not, trade up.
Well we will

I think Grayson will have a role in the league as a shooter with a few intangibles. Think Marco Belinelli with a bit of defense. He plays hard, shoots fast and has decent IQ.
He measured at 6'7" wingspan and was expected to be near 7". Along with his sub par athleticism, probably was enough for DL to pass on him.
So Portland might be interested in sending out a first for Lin, Ross or Simmons. https://www.peachtreehoops.com/2019...azers-new-orleans-pelicans-philadelphia-76ers
I think we are poised for a really busy trade deadline. It all could start on January 15 when all players are available for trades...
If they are sending a first for Lin/Ross they are also sending a bad contract imo... so with Porty Leonard or Turner... NO would send Hill.
Just my guess.
Lin, likely. I don't think so for Ross. He's an expiring. Plus his numbers are nice this season.
I can't see a trade for J-Simmons as the numbers are a bit complicated to make the trade work.
All those dudes are expiring... Maybe Ross fetches a 1st by himself but I doubt it. Dude is playing really well.
I believe Simmons has a year left after this season.
Just checked. It's a partial guarantee next season ($1,000,000). Next year he's slated to make 5.7M
Taureen Prince is rumored to be available. I haven't watched him much. The ringer pod kinda compared him to Jimmy Butler early in his career. Combo forward with some defense, shooting, and a little creation ability.
I like the fit, he is cheap for two more years... so cap space aspirations could remain in tact. I don't think our first gets it done... If it did I'm pretty sure I'd pull that trigger fast.
I wonder if they'd have any interest in Dante... I don't think they are desperate to move Prince... so my guess is they could pick up a mid round first from 3-4 different teams and one of those teams may have the second asset to get it done. Anyway... just a name/idea that I had some interest in.
Prince got drafted with the pick we sent for George Hill right? Would be pretty crazy if we ended up sending another 1st and compensation for the same player.
I like him, but I don't think he solves a lot of our issues. He seems like a Jae Crowder clone.
Both Blazers and Sixers are willing to trade their 1st round picks for a shooter.
Bet we can get Lin for a second. No way someone is giving up a 1st for him.
And we should get him.
Time to offload Cavanaugh.
Correct. I doubt the Hill thing would factor into DL's current evaluation... but would be strange.
I think he is better than Jae... a little longer, more athletic, but I can see the comparison. As good as we are with Jae on the floor... if we had a rich man's Jae I wonder how much better we'd be. He will probably develop a bit more, but he was older coming into the draft so there might not be a lot more there.
I think they would want a little more than just a first for him. If we got him we could still do some things in FA because he's cheap.
