Didn't Murphy get mis-used by possible 2nd round pick Jason Preston in the big dance?  I think he did.

Not sure where the Murphy -love is from.  He wasn't even all that at Rice.

 

I hear you on that but he can shoot and plays decent defense… with Zaire we’re waiting on him to blossom and it may never happen hopefully it does I’ll be rooting for anyone in a grizzlies jersey

Just the fact everybody flipping out like y’all know something is cracking me up. I’m pretty intrigued they picked someone nobody was thinking, love the pick 😎

This makes me feel even worse about the pick. Didn't think that was possible.

We could've kept JV and got Murphy. Wow

I'm a JV fan.  Not sold on Murphy.  Pippen Jr. is a better guard and didn't even stay in the draft this time.

Trey Murphy is not that impressive lol, why is everyone freaking out? Y'all just want to take Clarke/Bane/Tillman types forever? We need a third star and they threw a dart at a guy who has a narrow but tangible path to being one.

Ja needs someone who can help make something out of nothing much more than a guy who can hit a three in the corner. You're not getting the former with Murphy.

yea a 6'10' guy that fluid can be really good.   The upside and the SWING is real.    Technically i wanted us to draft him early on.  I'll give FO benefit of the doubt, because i didn't like JJJ pick either now i am defending him in the trenches. 

Yeah he's really working that 5'10' assistant coach. Shades of Yi Jianlan destroying the chair in his workouts.

Williams has a good frame looking at his shoulders, he'll be able to put on his man weight in 3-4 years. Still think low 200s for him at best

Totally agree..  So of yall think yall can predict a players future like yall Notradamus... 😂  Even the so-called experts make mistakes...  If fact most of sports media have East Coast bias...  They dont stay up to watch West Coast college games and make lazy uninformed evaluations...

Gtf I agree on your thinking re bouknight totally, but I wouldn’t defend jjj quite yet…this is his year to prove to himself he was worthy of number 4.  He’s done very little, and if he’s going to be our 5, he’s got to step up huge

Jason Preston had 13 rebounds and 8 assists against Murphy in the big dance as Murphy's team (defending national champs) got bounced by a team that finished 5th in the MAC conference in the regular season.

Murphy = MEH

I didn't want Jaren at all tho expecially at 4.   He was deemed a proj that we needed to be patient with by ALL the NBA analyst.   JJJ shot 40% from 3 and was second leading scorer on a surprising young team.    In other words the analyst underestimated his ability.   

So yea i am defending Jaren because he has already proven worthy of future investment.

You guys are missing the point......we're already tanking for next year's draft lottery so that we can keep being 2 years away from being 2 years away!!!!

So pending possible moves I guess this means Allen/Bane/Melton will be fighting for bench SG/SF minutes, right?

bane prob will be the starter.   There has to be another trade coming.  I bet they are trying to move up from 40.

It's freaking Gary Parish giving the grade. I trust your scouting ability more than that goofball.

Keyon is in a free fall. Would be another interesting gamble if he keeps tumbling.
