This is some "I'm gonna show you" type of treatment.

Flex saying something about Sochan. Fuck out of here
Gut feeling: Suns are looking at trade with San Antonio for DA. They'll get Sochan, who isn't a James Jones kind of guy (not NBA ready), but is intended to be flipped for KD (which oddly seems to be falling into place).
This better not essentially become DA and bridges for KD. Too much imo. Hope was to get a player out of DA and also KD. 2 pieces
Suns aren't letting Bridges go. The goal is to get some nice draft assets out of DA to go along with whatever they pull in from SA or DET. But, Flex seems to be hinting that SUns intend to deal with San Antonio.

AJ Griffin is falling too far.

Ochai Agbaji; I wonder if he's going to buy Colin Sexton's house.

Mark Williams; loved him 6 months ago, now I think he's melanin enhanced Mason Plumlee. Perfect for Charlotte.

AJ Griffin; best value pick in the first round besides Jaden Ivey.

Cam Payne for Alec Burks would save the Knicks 4 million

I don’t know a lot about this draft, but I love the idea of Sochan

Sochan is one of those Freshman who screams "potential" rather than posting eye popping stats.

That's exactly the sort of player James Jones is uninterested in. If he's included in an Ayton S&T, it's a near certainty he's being packaged and sent elsewhere.

I’d be fine if he’s part of a KD deal…he seems like a weird fit with Ben Simmons though. They are quite similar players.

Sochan's one of the most versatile, high IQ players in the draft, albeit with some underdeveloped offense. Not sure I'd build a trade for DA around him, but he'd be a great fit here.

Kind of a boring draft tho? I think Detroit and Houston did really well. Ivey and Duren with Cade and potentially DA? Houston replaced Wood with Smith and Eason, who complement each other well and give the Rockets more length and athleticism. Spurs did well with Sochan and Branham. I wasn't as high on AJ Griffin but ATL is a pretty perfect situation for him. I like Mark Williams a lot in Charlotte. Also love Daniels in NOLA.

Houston must be overjoyed that Jabari fell to them.

Everybody is saying Philly made a great trade. But Danny Green is a serviceable wing who can drain 3s, and they give up a 1st rounder, all to acquire Melton, a guy we couldn't be bothered to keep on our roster as an end-of-the-bench guard. Is that really a good trade for Philly?

Kinda bummed the Suns couldn't get Tari Eason. I really like his skillset and measurables. He's not going to be a star but I think he's a perfect front court role player.
