    no cap here at all. This kid might end up the 2nd best player in the draft behind Green

    Wow - Green and Sengun were my two top choices in this draft. If this doesn’t work out - it’s on me.

    The Wizards pick is heavily protected. I think the Detroit pick is pretty low too. J.R. will probably update us soon. We still have the 23rd and the 24th picks!

    Presti kind baby, returning us what was stolen in the brick trade. Now make my dream a reality Jalen Johnson 23 and Jaden springer 24th.

    I dreamt of it last night :):D

    I don’t know how good Sengun is but I like this aggressive approach to a rebuild. Hopefully they can pick up decent players at 24 and 25 and find a good trade for Gordon.

    He is one of the analytics guys favorite players in the draft. I didn’t expect him to fall this far - Stone probably saw an opportunity there too.

    PF/C that can shoot 80% FTs can develop jump shots and range. Ben Simmons is a career 59% FT (4 seasons), he will have a hard time developing jump shots.
