If we get another pick in the draft do we go wing or big?  Kevin Porter or Gafford/Fernando

BPA.

KPJ had some nice measurements.  He and Ja would be a super entertaining backcourt.  

Or, Bol. If we need shooting then we should look at Tyler Herro.  With Ja/Jaren, Herro would be WIDE OPEN.

So the Grizz met with both Ja and RJ and made their decision to stick with Ja

Nice!!!  Now go trade Conley for another pick and get the Big athletic SF.   Cam Reddish or DeAndre Hunter and i am good.

Good

Quick decisive decision.

Now time to put in the work to move Holiday Brooks Anderson Rabb Miles and wait for the first wave of FA fallout to settle to get a good deal on Mike. A starting wing or SG is what I want

I've been meaning to ask this but who else thinks Kyle Anderson isn't a good fit with Ja and Jaren? I'm expecting the team to be way more uptempo and pnr based so is it not better to have shooters and backdoor cutters in that style of offense? Where does Kyle fit into that?

He's on the block for me

I just don't see his fit him and Jaren had good chemistry last season but Kyle isn't a shooter or rebounder so a frontcourt of them wouldn't be very good. And with Ja hopefully given the keys to the car I'd rather he be the primary playmaker and have guys that can spot up and cut playing around him

I think he is a 6th man no matter what.  Not a 3 and needs then all but not good enough to start at point guard.  Not really a bench mob type either.  He's uh, SLOW.  So he's a change-of-pace 6th man point forward.

I can see him off the bench in that role maybe if they don't bring Delon back and opt for a more offensive minded back up pg. But with Delon back I again don't see the need for Kyle and his unique skillset. Now I didn't take his defense into account and he was really good last year so maybe that's his role

I've been saying all along. We only need one of Delon or Kyle. Same skill-set. 

Now that we have a speedster in place as PG, we are going to play fast. They are only good as backup PG having both is redundant.

**** that's a tough call cause Kyle is really good on defense but his scoring is very underwhelming whereas Delon has better scoring potential but his size doesn't make him as effective on defense and he's slightly older

A Ja/Dillon/Kyle/Jaren/Valanciunas starting five is...imperfect...that’s the nice way to put it. A Conley trade with the someone like the Suns (say, Tyler Johnson, TJ Warren, and #6 overall) helps balance things, lets Kyle be a 6th man combo forward type next to combo guard Delon https://twitter.com/ndq1125/status/1128835758771658755

Haha...I'm sure they were leaning Ja, but I wonder what turned them off completely in the RJ interview?

Bruno at the 3 (like the poster has on the other thread), upgrade at 2 (6th pick?). 

Bring Delon/AB/Dillon off the bench.
