    Dude missed half his games due to injury. Was pretty good in the other half. I’d trade him with that concern even if Mobley isn’t the pick and sell high. You could probably get a 1st rounder for him from a playoff team. Perfect draft to do it.

    If jalen green is only 6’5 hard pass if he’s a legit 6’6 then he’s my pick over Mobley.

    I think they go Mobley, I hope they go green.

    Green. Might be a godsend. KPJ is better at point rotation. Get Brown too and we’re good. If we could resign Olynyk, we’re good to go.

    Well that would certainly be something to watch. If we get a young wing for Wood, it makes the Mobley choice easier. I personally want Green or Suggs.

    Historically, we go for the big.

    Stone has been around to see us dominate with Harden on the perimeter. I think he'll want Green or Suggs.

    Tilman is old school and i could see him liking a big, BUT i think he wants excitement because it sells. Green would be his pick imo.

    Silas imo will want Suggs or Mobley.

    Looking at draft profiles I prefer Green over Suggs. Suggs needs to work on his FT (75%) and 3 (33.7%). Give me the better shooter all day.

    That being said it’s a damn crapshoot. Just glad we have our choice.

    KPJ can’t score well so we need Green to be the explosive SG. He will average 25-28 ppg one day while Porter is at 18 and 10

    I have only seen a couple games of each of these guys in the top 5. These Mobley highlights are pretty good. I didnt want Rockets to draft a center, but I like what I'm seeing.

    Sell high on Wood and even try and get another pick in this draft. I’m not going to panic over any of the top guys this year. I do feel depending on the symbiosis of the pick in respect to current prospects on the roster it could add years to a rebuild. It’s why I like Green being injected into this team with minimal need to rearrange things.

    I like Green a lot too. I love that he went to the gleague. If you're an nba high level prospect, college doesn't make sense. Not only do you have less games, less practice time and even limitation on times with the coach, but you play against less talented pool with ncaa style zone defense. In the gleague you are getting coached by nba players, plying at an nba pace, with talent that all dominated or were among the best in college, its a no brainer let alone you also get paid. Its definitely the way of the future

    Kpj mimics his game after Harden. He's too focused on stepback 3s. That's not a good sign

    Mobley has the highest potential apart from Cade.
    Potentially a Tim Duncan level defensive impact on the game. Decent vision and passing game too. Winning mentality

    Trade Wood, keep Kelly, and roll with another awkward season of development. Potential would be there with Mobley and Porter as building blocks. They might work out to be a solid pairing?

    The good thing is if we have a good GM then even if we draft a bust we can still turn it into something if we realize that and trade them away to another team that wants to rehabilitate that player.

    So just having the pick is an asset basically, no matter who we draft or what we do with it.

    I'm team Mobley or Suggs.

    Preferably Mobley because I think hating on bigs just because they are big is a mistake. Mobley has handles for his size and is a decent shooter and he's mobile and can defend the perimeter, so he's not a liability or a big stiff like say Lopez or Gobert.

    Orlando has a need for a big and owns two top 10 picks.
