    Didn't see a draft thread so I decided to open this.

    I wouldn't mind a move up into the late lottery for Gordon. I know some disagree. Lets see what happens.

    Hoping to maybe buy 1 or 2 early 30-40 2nd round picks.

    There is a lot of talent and depth to this draft.

    I like Vanderbilt and Duval

    Let me just save everyone some time and angst.

    1) Rox were aggressive into trying to move into the lottery
    2) close on several deals but last minute fell through
    3) ended up getting 1st round talent in mid 2nd round, didn’t expect that guy to be there and was someone they targeted all allong
    4) wanted to maintain flexibility

    5) ya some consider so-and-so to be somewhat undersized for the power forward position, but we strongly believe that effort is an undervalued skill

    Lol. on the SI.com online live stream. Andrew Sharp just totally called out Dallas as tacky and not a great city. Totally hilarious.

    Adam Silver recapping the NBA season was trying so hard to make it sound super competitive and bury the fact that the Finals was a clean sweep hahaha
