    Might as well get this one started after adding another L to push the streak to 15.

    Let’s just assume we luck out and get the #1 overall pick in the draft. Who would you guys take?

    I know the obvious choice might be Cade, but I think Kuminga has the higher upside, especially as a two-way star. At just 18 years old, he already has the perfect NBA body. Factor in he likely has another growth spurt in him to add an inch or two to his already impressive 6’8 frame; he has the potential to be insane defensively. We’re talking switch everything and guard 1-4 potential.

    I think he’d be a perfect compliment next to KPJ and Martin, but especially next to KPJ.

    The guy who looks like droopy Eric Andre.

    Listen, KPJ is talented but his mental state might also be volatile and if they both work out even better. Take the best player with the best pick.

    It really depends on how high you value KPJ. Because Cade seems redundant to KPJ but if you think Cade's ceiling is higher, than Cade. But if you think KPJ's ceiling is higher than Green. Green is a true shooting guard and KPJ/Green could be the backcourt of the future.

    Cunningham would be a perfect fit with KPJ/Wood

    Hopefully we have a top 4 pick so this thread is relevant.

    I wished Morey would have fought harder on those pick protections. Just a terrible trade all the way around.

    Cunningham and Porte can share the backcourt.

    Kuminga has a suspect jumper. We don’t need that on the team .

    Cade and no reason to overthink it. High IQ, good decision maker, fundamentally sound, reliable ball handler, great measurables, clutch, can score on all three levels and play 1,2,3 and possibly the 4 once he puts on size.

    No brainer!

    always go for talent over fit and figure the rest later. that's how you wind up taking bagley over luka.

    Mobley, then Cade or Green.

    But would be tempted to trade that pick for MPJ and Nuggets late FRP.

    Green is the better shooter I believe.

    Even then I think Green is a more gifted scorer. He's better off the dribble and can shoot decent.

    Even though I don't think we're going to sniff the top 4, I would pick Cunningham. He would fit well with the current lineup.

    Jalen Green looks like the best player in the draft.
