2019 NBA Draft Thread

Post by Shabazz » Wed Oct 24, 2018 10:05 pm

So, um, yeah. It's time.

RJ Barrett? Zion Williamson? Cam Reddish? Nassir Little? Any PGs look interesting?

Milwaukee's pick probably won't convey this year - I would have no problem parting with it in a deal for a better-than-average starting point guard.

RJ Barrett please. Zion can play the 4, I guess? Can he shoot from the outside though?

Eh, we shouldn't hope to find a rookie with enough money to buy an NBA team anyway.

Zion is a freak athlete but I haven't seen enough of him yet to gauge his overall skillset. We definitely need to be targeting a SF either way. Don't have enough of those.

I wish we could achieve that by tanking...

Tankathon had us at 4th most of the summer, but we were 8th last night. I guess they like what they see?

At this moment, it's Zion for me. He can shoot, handle the ball, pretty good passer, unbelievable finisher, blocks shots out of nowhere, and is ultra fun to watch. Him with Booker, Bridges, and Ayton would be so fun with a decent pg who could pass, shoot and play a little defense.

Possibilities at 32:
Isaiah Roby, Darius Bazely, Ty Jerome, Mfiondu Kabengele, Daniel Gafford, Dylan Windler, Chuma Okeke, Carson Edwards, Arturs Zagars

Not overly excited about much of this draft class. PG is thin, the PF class is meh.
The past is a place of reference, not a place of residence.
