    Any of them are attainable..... Sacramento wants #6 and 2 future firsts
    from the Pacers. Ivey is just as unattainable as #1, #2 and #3 but gets
    attention from Pacers, Detroit, Knicks, Kings, and OKC.

    Kings hope Ivey is there at #4 and are content with that pick.....allows them
    to ask for a lot. Either way they win:
    1) draft Ivey to go Davion Mitchell/Ivey/Fox lineups
    or
    2) nice amount of draft picks.

    OKC has a ton of future first round draft picks including ours in 2024 ( I believe).
    They could easily draft Chet at #2 and move up from #12
    to get Ivey at #4.......if Ivey was there at #4?

    1) Ivey (6'4")
    2) S Gilgeous-Alexander (6'6")
    3) Giddey (6'8")
    4) Chet (7'0")
    5) and whoever...........would be pretty formidable.

    All of them are attainable, but the top 3 are realistically too expensive for anyone to make an offer. The Kings might sell, if there's a person wanting Ivey..... but if not, they aren't going to pick him and he'll go to Detroit.

    I think this year there's no real surprises. Banchero said similar things about Houston, Jabari talked about being drafted #1, Chet's people have been leaking that they want OKC.

    They are just talking about where they know they are going

    Ivey is the most overrated player in this draft.

    Ivey is going to be a damn good player in this league. He'll end up being one of the better players in this draft easily

    Whelp, if it's Chet or Ivey, picking Ivey means you part with kpj at a steeper discount.

    Out of respect for @Dr of Dunk rules of the thread I'll answer my response:

    I personally have Ivey and Banchero ranked just about even. If I felt Ivey was a much better prospect he'd be my pick and I've even early on had Ivey as my preferred pick (second to Smith). After looking at the two I ranked them about the same and thought Banchero should be the pick based on a few additional factors.

    Ultimately if Rockets pick Ivey today I won't be mad at all. Green and Ivey would be hard to stop for years to come.

    My ultimate hope is Banchero/Green/Wemby or Scoot but next years draft is pretty much a nonfactor with too many things outside of our control

    If Ivey does not want to be in Sacramento...they should trade up....#3 for #4 and a future top 5 protected pick. Kings can grab Paolo and Rockets can grab Ivey.

    Ivey passes the eye test so well.

    .... yeah but then we'd be stuck with Ivey. Let's not blow this draft.

    Ivey/Cade will be extremely entertaining to watch. Great spot for him
