    Rumor has it that Charlotte is going to pick Brandon Miller. Portland already had Lillard and Anfernee Simons. Scoot could be falling to us!

    Rumor has it, Orlando is going to draft Jabari Smith and Banchero is dropping to #3.

    Pure fud.

    Scoot is locked at #2 as he is the clear BPA.

    Miller was pushed by KOC back in November otherwise he wouldn't be this high. Miller is a solid prospect between 3-5 really. No reason for him to go #2 when he is literally older than the Thompson twins and shot like garbage in the second half of the season.

    Amen is a media creation and shouldn't go top 20.

    I see this happening:

    Rockets trade #4 & #20 for #3 to Draft Scoot.

    Portland turns around to trade #4 and #20 + a random scrub for Giannis.

    Even if Charlotte is dumb enough to pass on Scoot, Portland won't be. Either they'll draft him or they'll trade the pick to a team that would pay a premium for a chance to draft him. No way two different NBA front offices are that stupid, but I suppose there's always hope...

    A media creation who has met and worked out with multiple NBA teams drafting in the top 5. I guess all those NBA front offices and scouts are just drinking the media Kool Aid, too.

    If they trade Dame and Brandon goes to Charlotte, I heard they would rather want Amen than Scoot, because of his length, play making and defensive skills….it could happen…Amen can be a special player….he is a generational athlete with the ball in his hand

    Odds are extremely low. If you don’t believe me, you can take advantage of sports betting, which is currently paying out $3600 on a $100 bet for Scoot falling to #4. We’ll need to get to #2, maybe #3, to get Scoot…which I really hope Stone pays the price to do. Scoot is the 2nd best player in this draft.

    If NBA front offices were smart, they wouldn't be drafting Thabeet, Darko and Killian Hayes. Jan Vesley, Mario Hezonja.

    PLease proceed with ingorance Amen delusioner.

    Drafting in any sport is an inexact science. It's why a can't miss prospect like Greg Oden busts, while Nikola Jokic gets taken 41st and ends up a perennial MVP candidate. But I trust NBA front offices way more than I trust random posters on Clutchfans. In a related note, for as confident as you are, you'd better hope neither of the Thompson twins pan out. If they do, you'll never be able to live it down in the GARM. I didn't know your username before, but "Noob cake" will forever be associated with the Thompson twins in my brain.

    Sure

    But you jackalopes have hyped Scoot up so much just like you did Banchero that he won't fall past #2

    I have:
    Charlotte taking Scoot.....trading one of LaMelo or Rozier.. Michael Jordan will love him some Scoot.

    Portland trades for Siakim. Siakim replaces the Jeremi Grant who is bailing on them. Afrenee Simmons goes to Raptors.

    Raptors:
    Malachi Flynn (or FA...Jevon Carter?)
    Anfernee Simmons
    Amen Thompson
    Scottie Barnes
    Poetlol (re-signed)

    Blazers
    Dame
    S Sharpe
    Cam Reddish
    Siakim
    Nurkic

    Trading LaMelo would be foolish, you draft a guy like Scoot to pair him with LaMelo, not to replace him. Trading Rozier probably makes sense though, he's already 29 so he's somewhat expendable, but I'd keep him around and force Scoot to earn the job over him.

    Rozier is more shooting guard than PG.

    Orlando has that in Cole Anthony, Suggs.

    They just need a Passing PG like LaMelo to go with
    Brandon Miller
    Franz Wagner
    Banchero
    Wendell Carter

    Problem is LaMelo is always hurt. But Magic do it while taking back trash contract Gordon Hayward
