  1. With The 4th Pick In The 2018 NBA Draft

    Same plan, but I put Young over Carter in this idea. I was thinking in those Clippers trades ideas http://www.espn.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=yd5433cr Clippers get the #4, Nuggets #12 and we get #13 and #14. Draft Knox, Walker and Duval. Sign Hezonja Mle MC/Beverly/Duval Harrison/Dillon/Selden/Walker Harris/Hezonja/Knox Faried/Jam/Rabb Gasol/DD That is a solid team that will fight for the 6th-8th seed, the hope is that we get a steal in one of the 2 (Walker or Knox), and make the Playoffs. I still prefer drafting the #4 but if they evaluate that this will balance our roster more and that one those late lottery guys could be a Donovan Mitchell type player I could understand.
  2. The only way I would trade the pick is if Porter is long term injuried, Doncic says he wont come and Bagley, Ayton and Young are already drafted.
  3. I wouldnt do it, but I would be Ok with #4 + Parsons for #11 + #12 + Harris and Beverly. Just draft the best player at #4.
  4. 9-10 men rotation

    Barton will get more than MLE, even Tyreke will be difficult to keep for that price.
  5. 9-10 men rotation

    I quite agree, Parsons will be in the middle to the end of the rotation, and Porter is the 1st option type of guy we are missing, go with MLE on a big (Oquinn or Monroe) and we will be ok.

    Bagley, Doncic and Porter are CW type of guys.
  7. With The 4th Pick In The 2018 NBA Draft

    If Porter gives his medical for other team we will probably have some info, because teams might ask for our pick, then I would draft him even if he doesn't give us a blessing. Doncic on the other hand can really stay in Spain, if so a trade like I mentioned or just draft Young or Bagley if available.
  8. With The 4th Pick In The 2018 NBA Draft

    If Suns are confused between Ayton/Doncic and they are open to trade the pick we can do Marc + 4th + 32nd for the 1st + 16th + Chandler + Knight. That would put us in totally rebuild mode and would give a possibility of picking the best player in the draft. Draft Ayton and Divincenzo. MC/Knight/Harrison Mclemore/Divincenzo/Selden/Marshon Dillon/Parsons Jam/Rabb/Martin Ayton/Chandler/DD FO wont do it, but this is better than make only Playoffs 6th-8th seed and losing for Warriors or Rockets.

    Even if they are not willing we must draft them.
  10. With The 32nd Pick In The 2018 NBA Draft

    Great high risk high reward prospect, wont last to the late seconds.
  11. 9-10 men rotation

    I was looking the players that we have and the Playoffs, we all know every good team must have a solid 9-10 men rotation, so which players you guys can see in that 10 man rotation and the team pick order of the 1st to the 10th options? Pick order: We don't have this guy (must draft this player with the 4th pick) Mike Conley (althought I see him more as a 3rd option in a elite team, we dont have that leverage so after the Spurs series last Playoffs he is in front of Marc). Marc Gasol he is a 4th option now, but unless we resign Tyreke or get a steal with the MLE in other player Gasol is the 3rd guy. We don't have this guy (we must find this guy via FA, like I said, we could even find a 3rd option here) Dillon (will start in sg or sf, I prefer the idea of devoloping him as a 2) Jam (glue guy and defender, he want to earn more money so he will produce) Parsons (signed with a monster/terrible contract should have been the 3rd option, but is capable to at least be a top 5 guy if healthy, I dont expect nothing from him, if he plays solid and shoot well he will be ok as the 1st forward of the bench. Harrison ( I was against him at first but Im fine with him as a glue guy that can play pg and sg) Selden (healthy problems this year, but Im still high on him, 3&D guy with potential playing sg and sf) Rabb (Im not against drafting a big in this draft, but Im against drafting a project like [Bamba or JJJ] and a potential starter/role player [Carter], because of this guy, if he bulk up a bit, I see some Horford in him in the sense he will be able to do a bit of everything and play both big positions. Martin and Mclemore I hope we move them on draft night to get a serviceable rotational player, maybe a player with a not that good of contract, or to a team that want some future 2nd draft picks or enter in the draft with the 32nd, or a player that is not being used by his team (some exemplas Lance Stephenson, Kenneth Faried, MKG and Korver). DD is too raw, but since we wont get anything from him he is a 5th or even 6th bigman in my book. Marshon is a cheap scorer, for me we have almost nothing with him, but who knows; we will see in training camp if he fits. Looking for this analyse I just did, I see (Porter, Bagley and Doncic as the best options to be the pick) and guys like (Tyreke, Bradley, Hood, Monroe, Oquinn, Hezonja and Mcdermott) could be options in the FA, but some of them I would sign just if we could not get a the top option or if we could sign two players instead of 1. But the idea is simple, if we draft Bagley, we sign a wing in FA; if draft Doncic or Porter, we sign a bigman in FA, sign some other vets that can play D, shoot 3s and/or put the ball in the basket and go after a late Playoff seed, the problemn is if we will have enought firepower to face Rockets or the Warriors.
  12. With The 4th Pick In The 2018 NBA Draft

    ok, now I tottally undestand your point, my bad. Young and Porter are easily picked at 4th for sure.
  13. With The 4th Pick In The 2018 NBA Draft

    Of course they are, from all Im hearing from the media members of the Grizzlies they have Bagley and Doncic as their top guys, then JJJ. I hope we dont draft JJJ, and make the excuse of he falled in the draft night and we are lucky for that, Im not against Bagley and Doncic on that case.
  14. With The 4th Pick In The 2018 NBA Draft

    We could be better at 2, the idea was to have the 1st but the 2nd pick would have been amazing.
  15. With The 4th Pick In The 2018 NBA Draft

    Im ok with that, like I said many times, if we end with Doncic, Bagley, Porter (if healthy) or Young im more than fine. 2 of those guys will be available, we are just fine.
