    After we inevitably draft your favorite player at #3, who has your fancy? Some interesting prospects down there.

    Ajay Mitchell.

    Vastly under rated, great shooter, flirted with a 50/40/90 season, solid ball handler, gets to the line, good size and is a decent defender. Lots of upside here.

    Second choice from your list - Ulrich Chomche.

    I’d be pretty amazed if this pick wasn’t traded.


    But can you imagine having Lebron’s kid coach tell him to quit b****ing? Having leverage over the game’s current most influential figure?

    Easy pick.

    I am really not done with the #3 discussions / re-education efforts.

    How about one of these cats if they managed to fall to #44?
    • Alexandre Sarr, F/C
    • Nikola Topic, G
    • Stephon Castle, G
    • Donovan Clingan, C
    • Reed Sheppard, G
    • Zaccharie Risacher, F
    • Cody Williams, F
    • Rob Dillingham, G
    • Dalton Knecht, W
    I guess if all else fails:
    • Reece Beekman, G
    who very well may have a 10+ year NBA career

    Ryan Dunn is projected around 30 so he has to fall a bit, would be great to slot behind Tari/Cam/Amen should we move on from Brooks. That is my hope for a second round score.

    I would take Edey in the unlikely event he is available otherwise I do not really care who they pick.

    As is tradition, this pick will be the better player.

    Would be hilarious if the loud crowd got their favored pick and then some schmuck 2nd round pick outplays him.

    trade it. We barely have enough roster spots for the players under contract - this person would have little shot of being signed let alone enough room to get playing time.

    Ryan Dunn can not shot anything except a dunk ... likely envious of Amen's shooting skills. He is likely the best defender in the draft yet ... may go undrafted.

    Ryan Dunn is a high character guy though.
