    I would 100% slide Jabari to 3 and run a jumbo front court. That type of length in the defensive end would be awesome.

    SF - Smith - 6-11
    PF - Sarr - 7-1
    ..C - Sengun - 6-11

    Reed will be the pick unless someone wises up and pulls an Orlando like they did with Paolo.
    Rockets aren’t going to make it as obvious this time around who they covet.

    Ayo to me is a starting-caliber player. I think there's more in there offensively than he's shown, and he's a great defensive player as well.

    The reason why there’s so many trash trades out there is because of all the rumors of what the Rockets want to do with the pick. They need to quit trying to be cute. It was blessing to go from #9 to #3. They need to just keep it because there’s no real value to be had that teams want to give up.

    I want Reed, but I also just really hope it's not Risacher. He's quickly become the most overrated player in this draft. He's got "mid role player" written all over him, and the analytics agree. You can find 3&D wings who can't create offense and who are average athletes in Free Agency. That's easy. Hope the Wizards jump all over him so we're not tempted to. I'd be really annoyed too if the Spurs took Reed at 4.

    I see why Dillingham and Holland are rising, Washington is higher on Coulibaly at SF now.....

    The Euros look really terrible after that combine. Risacher with the terrible vert and tiny hands, Topic with a negative wingspan. It might be enough to drop both guys out of the top 5. I feel like Washington just gambles on Ignite being garbage and going with a pedigree pick in Holland or Buzelis. I still think they have the highest ceiling. Castle and Dillingham are also gonna gain a lot from those 2 dropping.

    It's why Ime loves Jalen Green and never benches him in the 4th quarter because Ime loves bad defense, poor shooting, and bad decision making. :eek:

    happy to be in the outlying group of a Green Stan, Al-p believer, and a Sheppard Shiller

    ....or as some others might call it: a Rockets fan.

    Have felt and still feel like it will be Castle unless Sarr drops. I won’t hate it but prefer Shepp.

    Agree. I prefer Reed due to his deadly shooting and all around game, but Castle does look really solid as well.
