    Don't over think it or make this difficult Tilman. Pick Green and get you popcorn ready.

    Mobley, but I'm intrigued by Green.

    If the Rockets pick Suggs it tells me they don't trust Porter off the court.

    Take Green at 2. Now we're set at playmakers.

    Use the other 2 picks on wings that are knockdown shooters.

    Mobley is also very smart. The more I think about it, he’d be really hard to pass up.

    I hope Stone has learned from Morey's mistakes of not getting quality shooters and looking at that skill first. I hope we never see the brick layers we have had the past 5yrs ever again.

    To me, Mobley is Wood, but five years younger with a higher ceiling and greater defensive potential. I think I just lean Green because I've been watching a lot of Phoenix in the playoffs, and Green reminds me of Booker a little bit. Having an offensive weapon like that, a guy who can just make shots from anywhere on the floor, is a damn good place to be starting from with a rebuilding franchise. At the end of the day, though, I'm going to be thrilled with either guy.

    He is legit very good. And we have a guard talent at the level of Suggs in Porter.

    Green tempting, but a PG/ FC combo is very solid

    Jalen Green's game reminds me of young Jordan with all those double pump moves in the air.

    Obviously not at that level of Jordan but similar playstyle.

    Get Duarte in the 20s as a shooter?

    It's a gaurds' league. Elite backcourts can rule the league today. Green and KPJ can be a future elite duo.

    I'd at least ask Detroit what it would take to move up.

    Suggs or Green. Slightly leaning toward Suggs.

    I thought I chose to only allow single vote per person.

    Now I can't see it to make any changes unless the mods can make the change on my behalf. Sorry.

    Take Suggs or Green

    Move Wood and a late first for a big in the 6-11 range. Try to dump Gordon in the process.

    Maybe its just me. I like Cade but I always worried about his ceiling. I understand the Luka comparisons because of his size and skill/iq but I'm just not sure. I always felt he could just as easily be Evan Turner with a better jump shot. I know that Luka makes up for his lack of elite athleticism with craftiness, I just don't know if Cade is nearly as skilled. I thought Luka should have been #1 pick as I'm sure many of you did at the time. Cade is certainly a safe pick but he might just be a safe starter lvl player. Who knows. I always thought Jalen Green's athleticism separated him from the rest of the class and he's been doing it against pro lvl players consistently all of last year. I also think Green has much more potential to fill out his body and become even stronger and more of an elite athlete. Cade... not so much considering his current weight.

    I love Suggs. Would be stoked to get him. Great college player but to me could end up either a star or someone like Marcus Smart.

    Wouldn't mind Mobley either. I would be a little nervous given the history of big men especially at the top of the draft but no one can deny that if he put on some weight in the next few years and worked on his game that he could be a game changer in the league.

    As of today I would probably go Green, Mobley, Suggs. I would very much like if the Rockets were able to trade back to #4 with Toronto in exchange for another asset but I doubt that happens and perhaps the Rockets really like someone at #2.

    So stocked right now. Damn.

    They have a twig, I would be open to trading him

    If the Rockets make any draft decision based on the stiffs currently present on the NBA's thinnest and worst roster (including Porter Jr and Wood) they are doing it entirely wrong.

    I don't think they will. But, dumber things have happened.
