    There is so much less pressure this draft, when you are picking top 5 and rebuilding the best case scenario is to draft a cornerstone player... Thankfully The Rockets got one last year. If they draft Chet they will have two...

    I really think him guarding the perimeter is Silas’ idea. I don’t think he’s very capable of guarding bigs anyway. He just has to go. What KPJ, Green, and Jaygup are doing without him is proof enough.

    We don't have anywhere approaching max cap space. Won't until Wall and Gordon are off the books. And even if we trade them we'd likely have to bring back in salary. If we buyout Wall, the bulk of his salary will still be on our books this year. I'd love to hear your ideas on how we'd get this done. I'd love to add Ayton to this team.

    I’m just shooting crap at the “Wall” and seeing what sticks lol. Not sure how they’d get it done, I’d just like to see it. Ayton would cover up Sengun’s defensive holes perfectly

    Chet, Jabari, Paolo, Jaden, and Shaedon. Any of those guys would be awesome, I’m so glad we got a top 5 pick.

    He’s the perfect player for this offense to play with Sengun and Green.

    Dude already eats soul food, Jamaican food, etc. and he's still built like a 2x4. May need to send him out on a "moist" brisket, Timmy Chan's, and fried fried diet. It's our only hope.

    Yeah the offensive fit is the best with Jabari and he is an excellent defender just not a rim protector. Chet obviously gives you the best defense of the bunch. I'm cool w either one tbh

    Offensively, Chet fits just as well if not better. Jabari is a great shooter but Chet isn’t far behind, plus he offers more in the dunker spot
