    All I care we can draft janitor off the building and still become great NBA player if that pick came from Brooklyn. Somehow Basketball god hates Brooklyn and Detroit so much that they’ll make them suffer anyway possible

    Hidden Star everyone over looking. Hidden European Star. Rafael Stone and every Scout must hit on this pick. Needs to be a Star.

    Very early in my research and I havent been looking at the top guys yet, but im leaning either Reed or Dillingham and I think I prefer Rob long term with the upside he provides.

    So gimme Dillingham.

    The right answer is the Uconn guy.

    The wrong question is "which one?".

    I think the Top 2 teams will pick Risacher and Sarr........the team that picked Coulibaly would pick a French compatriot.

    Whether they pick it themselves or pick it for another team....

    I don’t know yet. I know the college guys pretty well, but not as familiar with the international guys

    If they are not trading then a point guard who can shoot or someone who will eventually shoot because i'm like 99% sure that Amen is not a point guard and if Fred gets injured or leaves we will need someone to fill that spot. Get Topic or Dillingham and prepare them for the future. However i would trade the pick.

    I would like one of

    Reed Sheppard-elite shooter which is something the Rockets lack big time, and has solid playmaking skills)

    Donovan Clingan-potential to be an elite rim protector also insurance if Sengün or Adams (who’s in a contract year aren’t) ready for the beginning of the season)

    Zaccharie Risacher-I like how well he plays off of the ball and looks like an active and versatile defender, kinda reminds me of Trey Murphy

    I am open and do like the idea of potentially trading back to a team like Portland for the 7th and 14th pick if it’s a player in the top 5 that they really like, but I’m guessing if we trade the pick it’s for a player who can help us when now instead of stockpiling more picks. The problem is, I don’t see any superstar available unless we can make a deal for a Trae Young
