    David Roddy? 260 pound small forward??

    Ziaire was extremely limited his Sr yr in HS and Freshman year of college due to COVID, which probably slowed his development. Bane is 3 years older, so ZW has another couple seasons to play before comparing him to Bane’s 21/22 season.

    He definitely wouldn’t be redrafted top 10 at this point. But, he didn’t play on one of the worst teams like the Magic, Rockets or Thunder, he played on the team with the 2nd best record, so he didn’t get as many minutes, nor was he looked at as heavily to be a scorer. He did however do better than Moody, Bouknight, and Murphy. I still think he could turn into a legit scorer, so we will just have to wait and see.

    I would be very surprised if he makes it to the baseball hall of fame

    I haven’t given up on Aldama yet. Put some muscle on him, let him grow his hair out, he can be Agua Mane. The Winslow trade was a miss, but there wasn’t a risk.
  6. What player ever drafted 20+ is initially given a very high ceiling? None are until they bust through their low ceiling.
  7. We signed Kenneth Lofton to a two-way, so I expect Chandler to get a full roster spot. Kleiman identifies players he wants, and goes after them. I like that. He doesn’t just sit back and hope they’d be available at 22 and 29. Maybe they would, maybe they wouldn’t. He doesn’t want to risk having to settle for someone else. Also, I don’t care how someone grades our draft. I care about the fit and performance of those players down the road. I’m sure no one will remember what our draft grade on draft night was in 2 years.

  9. Who knows. No one thought too much of Bane the day after he was drafted. In his second season, he was one of the most accurate 3pt shooters in the league. I wouldn’t rule out an Allstar selection in his future. He’s looking like the 3rd best player in his draft, and was picked 30th.

    Someone on reddit said Roddy is more Desmond Bane than Desmond Bane. But Roddy was listed at 252 lbs. Kenneth Lofton, our 2-way signee, is listed as 6’7” 276lbs, and looks like a D-Lineman.
  11. Wow, giving up both picks to move up to 19 for LaRavia
  12. You can only make so many good moves and win exec of the year before everyone thinks “This guy is trying to get one over on me, not gonna happen!”

  14. Their core is SGA and a bunch of draft picks.
  15. Been having trouble getting on here. Mike Miller got the first gif of the NBA draft.

    The 2022 NBA Free Agents & trades

    Yes. Anytime a team is shopping a player, you should stop and ask, "Well why don't they want him anymore?"

    Memphis Grizzlies and NBA Roster Moves

    That would make much more sense. Harris is making $35 million. Not the greatest contract to possess.
  19. Having the #2 pick here is almost a curse. You are pretty much expected to pick Holmgren. He could turn out great, he could be mediocre, or he could completely flop. The chances for the second two are not insignificant. I think the chances of Murray and Ivey having stellar careers are much higher.

    Thybulle only making $4 million next year, so wouldn’t create much space at all.

    Ja Sent to Utah

    But now Jazz fans can’t go to their own zoo without being reminded of our best player.
  22. Yes, that would be my preference, but I’d be ok with Blake Wesley, Jaden Hardy, or TyTy if he falls. Montero has fallen way off. I’d only be ok with him at 47. No way would I want to take him at 22 or 29.
  23. Yeah. I totally would prefer lots of others over Chandler. If we draft a guard, I want them to be no shorter than Ja.
