    I know it's a day early, but let's see those final predictions for our picks. What's your best guess as to what could happen? Trade up? Take all three choices? Add a fourth?

    I'll make a wild prediction to start. It's one I would be over the moon with.

    3. Paolo Banchero


    Rockets trade Eric Gordon and number 26 for number 13 from Charlotte.

    13. Jalen Duren



    17. Tari Eason





    Can't wait.

    Pick Bachero if available at 3. If not get Ivey. Pass on Chet. I've watch Chet vs Duke he always got knock down to the floor how much more on NBA level. Chet is too skinny and we have already skinny Green in our starting 5.
    Package Gordon + 17 for Tybulle

    Sengun
    Bachero
    Tybulle
    Green

    Draft Paolo at 3, if teams take him hostage at 1 or 2 then go for the trade(to take him).

    If he stays available at 3, trade remaining 2022 picks(+ other assets) for BPA rookie/stars/vets/role players that would complement our two main cornerstones(PB&J).

    Standing Pat = Banchero/Eason/Dalen Terry

    Moving and Shaking = Banchero/Keegan Murray (trade 26+17 & player(s) to move up)

    Agreed. Paolo and some package of moves where we end up with Eason. May involve just staying at 17 and taking him.

    I want Keegan, but I think he's going too high.

    He's a top 5 guy IMO. Some teams in the 4-7 range may prefer to go with an even younger prospect like Sharpe, Mathurin or Daniels (hopefully). If Murray is in that 7-10ish range I would hope Stone would try to go for it. You can plug Murray right into the lineup day 1. Time to go quality over quantity with our picks. My gut feeling is like you I think he will be gone early, but just holding out hope GMs get cute.

    No. 3 Paolo Banchero
    No. 17 Jalen Williams
    No. 26 Dalen Terry

    Could go with either Williams or Terry at 17 and pray other drops to 26.

    #3 Jaden Ivey (you don't pass up the opportunity to put Ja Morant next to M J )
    #17 Tari Eason
    #23 Jovic (Philly trying to make Harden feel comfortable by chasing EG & PJ Tucker)
    #26 Patrick Baldwin

    3) Banchero

    Then Gordon, KMJ, 17 and 26 get traded to either NY at 11, Cha at 13 or Cle at 14 to get Eason.

    Ultimately I think Stone wants to end up with Gordon and Martin traded and 1 additional FRP in this draft not 4 selections.

    If Stone is as smart as i hope he is, we are packaging Green, #3, #17, #26, and Nets future picks for Evan Mobley

    3. Paolo
    17. Beauchamp. Eason goes to the Hawks at 16.
    26. Trade out of the draft for a future FRP most likely or select Jaylin Williams.
