    Jalen green is a scorer .. he ain’t Cade a generation type talent but he can be a damn good 30 point scorer one day

    We should be happy that OKC didn't get our pick which would be NBA heist on TV.

    CF is gonna crash over the next month as we debate this pick to no ends.

    Another benefit. If Cade balls next year, he could easily get Detroit into the playoffs, so the Rockets actually get Detroit's pick earlier than previously predicted.

    I’m hoping for #2. I want Mobley.I wanted number two so we could get Mobley. He’s clearly better than green or suggs. This is huge win for us.

    is it a lock that Detroit selects Cade? Could they really like Suggs or Green?

    I'm cool with it. We already got lucky.

    I'm cool with Mobley, people really underestimate the value of bigs in the NBA now even though all the teams left feature good bigs. As long as they are mobile and can contribute offensively they fine and can be played. Mobley is both.

    Personally for me, I'm team Mobley. KPJ PG of the future...

    Mobley-Wood frontcourt sounds yummy to me.

    EDIT: Of course I have Cade first should Detroit do something wild but...Cade-Mobley...then whatever. I'm not so sure I'm ready to trust the gleague stuff, I know I should but...I don't want to be the first team to be drafting a g-league player in the top 5. Let someone else do that. ESPECIALLY a bubble gleague...

    Dude Mobley doesn’t look like a bust at all, I kinda would rather jalen green

    As long as we don’t take Suggs (I love him, but Mobley and green are both better)

    Man **** Detroit. I really didn’t want to pick a center. I know Mobley is good but damn I wanted a guard. Obviously I’m happy but we were so damn close.

    If we lost that pick to OKC, would have been a travesty. Getting the #2 pick is huge.

    3 first round picks this year. Gives us a lot of room to work on rebuild

    T for 3 I'm having fun.

    I am not really a Cunningham guy. But either way thrilled with this result. It makes that horrendous trade worth something.

    Mobley is the pick.

    Anthony Davis who needs to work on his outside shot. But with better playmaking.

    Makes Wood tradeable unfortunately.

    But should keep him until his value increases

    How good is Suggs Knight?

    Is there a 6'11er who plays like a guard?
