2022 Award Winner
Would feel great if the Jazz could trade into the teens with the 76ers pick.
the odds of which are so bad ,that the odds DA does in fact trade out of the 2nd pick which has good not great value as is, or more likely the less valuable late first to some team lacking any firsts or something this draft at minimum,for a win now player, is optimal and highly likely.If they hit on all three just imagine how deep this team could be since that’s three players on rookie deals.
I agree. We trade #1 (Wemby via Wolves), 76ers pick, Lakers, and 4 other pics (+Gay) for Luka.Sometimes I think it might be more likely they trade out, not up. Not completely out, but at least one pick out. With the West being so weak right now DA might see an opportunity to grab a vet upgrade.
The DFS smoke looms in my brain.
I don't think he will trade up into the top 3 because he won't make available what teams are willing to trade out of premium spots justify it for, aka the Finnisher.I don't think he'll trade up. And I'm confident DL, DA and JZ will come to a consensus on a few draft steals.
I know people really like the twins, but I’m not high on either of them. I have them both rated below Walker & Whitaker. I could probably be talked into Grady Dick and Taylor Henderson as well.I keep reading up and watching as much as I can on Amen. I think this is one of the strangest evaluations I can remember. You're basically drafting him straight out of HS, OTE is basically an AAU tournament, but he has the age of a college sophomore.
This is probably the best writeup I've read on him: https://theboxandone.substack.com/p/amen-thompson-2023-nba-draft-scouting
