    Curious what the board would want most based on what I’m seeing in other threads. List who you want either through the draft or trade, or both.

    At this point you want young veterans who are more mature for their age but do not totally destroy the age time line.

    • The SGAs and Lu Dorts that are 25-26 years old.

    • That is why Ingram was so sought after.

    • Shooting is still a premium, stronger PF with footwork and shooting, backup PG......
    • Backup C should be addressed in time but I do not see it as urgent......
    • if you get Clingan that is fine as well, I like that prospect for defensive purposes.

    Still working on that... tbh I don't have the best amount of research here. I focused a lot of my "scouting" time in the NFL Draft.

    As of right now, I would very loosely rank them as:

    Sarr
    Risacher
    Klingan/Sheppard (toss up)

    Left out the option...

    - 3 solid scrappy role players.

    A SG and SF that are smart and can shoot.

    A long, athletic, DEF big, with a motor for days.

    Didn’t see it listed in the poll; a combo guard who can take pressure off Fred but also play off ball and shoot 3’s at a high level. If Fred goes down next year we are in big trouble.

    that assumes Jalen gets to league average as a 3pt shooter next year. If not, our #1 need is a shooting guard (preferably with size) that can actually knock down shots and defend the perimeter.

    to me rim protection is a distant 3rd to those two needs.

    1) We need most some consistent outside shooting.
    2) Another big to groom to replace Adams when he leaves.

    Where is the option in the poll for 'a long playoff run'??

    That's what I want most for this team.

    I like your spirit, but looking at this years playoffs, we need to be better than OKC and/or Minny to go deep.
    Hard to imagine that happening next year.

    We need maturity. We are 3 years in on some and still don’t know what we have. 2/3 of the season one of worst player in the league then 10ish games one of best. Bipolar play is hard to understand and plan around.

    We need direction on which way are going to build the team. Who are the leaders (main players).

    We need TEAM identity. What we stand for and how we play. (It’s coming from coach but it needs to be player based).

    Till this happens the rest is just the rest.

    For so called fans to stop hating on our best players just because they don't match their stylistic preference. Been going on since Harden.

    Not liking bad players and liking good players isn't a "stylistic preference"

    You can pretend trash is gold if you want, you can't demand others pretend trash is gold.

    This would be awesome if we could pull it off. That is absolutely the most I would give up for Paul George.
