    Oh, I don’t want to draft Edey, but I don’t agree with the assessment. He’s light years better than Boban. Not nearly as stiff, better all around player.

    Lively is the only player I want in this draft.

    Former Rockets legends Donatas Motiejunas and Bruno Caboclo were #20 picks!!!

    Trade up for dick or Wallace. Or trade 4 and 20 for an all star.

    with this weak draft I would feel it'd be hard to get pick 6+11 from magic just for pick 4. I would trade 4 and 20 for 6 and 11 in a heartbeat and draft Whitmore and wallace

    Eddy is too slow physical. I would only want Lively or trade the 20th pick with TyTy Washington or Martin for Mike Conley.

    @daywalker02

    Or back out of the first round for Zach Edey

    That's more the Rockets M.O. ......
    pay second round cash instead of first round salary



    No one can convince me Zach Edey is slower running the court than Sengun

    You can see Lively trying to guard Edey at the 2:01 mark

    Lively didn't have much on stats but was stellar in the final month or
    so with Duke. His defense is what Udoka is looking for in a Big. Lob threat
    as well

    I was giving him benefit of doubt being a finalist or winning NCAA POY, but the other from Duke should suffice, Rockets need a young tree trunk for spot minutes or starts if injury or something comes up, I would take the Duke player first if both are avail though

    A.Bona of UCLA is waiting there to be drafted as #20 pick.

    Who would you have taken over JG and Jabari in hindsight?

    Small Forward or Center with the 20th pick

    Maybe look for European Talent.

    I like a development idea with the 20 pick.

    Take Whitehead if he is still available? Rehab him and have a lotto prospect the following year

    Or flip back for 2 seconds?
    Kobe Brown (senior) looks like a red hot prospect as a backup 4 (might need a strong year of coaching), and could probably get Bona in the early 2nd round too (needs a lot of cooking still)
