    No that was Sacramento's pick via Philly. Read what you posted.

    Did you read what you posted? Philadelphia will instead send a 2019 first-rounder to Boston that it acquired from the Sacramento Kings

    you literally don't get that philly is the owner of these picks in the post. It literally says picks they acquired and own. Aka it's philly's picks.

    What do you think Sacramento via Philly means? It means Philly traded a pick that it acquired from Sacramento. It would be like the Rockets trading the Nets or Bucks pick to move up 2 spots. Are you saying the Rockets wouldn't trade the Bucks 23 pick to move up 2 spots?

    It means philly is the owner of the pick. I knew that already. What team they got the pick from is irrelevant when Philly is the owner of the pick. you're saying philly doesn't even own the pick

    The bucks pick sucks. that wouldn't even be nearly enough.

    Bucks via Houston. Houston owns the pick.

    I'm not saying that. I clearly clarified when I said Sacramento via Philly. But you insisted on continuing like you didn't know what that meant. But the point is still that neither the Mavericks or the 6ers had to give up an unprotected first to move up 2 spots. The Rockets 100% have similar assets to trade to move up and it doesn't include Green or an unprotected first.

    no you clearly said "That was the Kings pick and not the 6ers"

    That right there says 76ers don't own the pick

    point is both deals had a #10 pick involved and a #14. wake me up when the rockets are offering some lottos in addition to the #3 pick.

    Yeah and then I clarified what I meant in the next post. But you continued on acting like I didn't know what I was talking about it.

    you clearly didn't explain it well enough. All you said was Sacramento's pick via Philly

    that doesn't tell anyone anything when it was after your "That was the Kings pick and not the 6ers"

    followed by all this did you read what you posted? or what does that mean? clearly there was no explanation on your end

    Philly is the owner of the pick. it's that simple

    It should clarify. The Rockets have the Nets picks this year. If anyone on this board asks who are the Rockets taking with the Nets pick this year basically everyone would know it was pick 17 being referred to. I shouldn't have to over explain what something like that means. You should know and I think you do but are just being difficult to be difficult.

    There is no consensus so the basis of this thread is flawed. The ONLY consensus I've seen is that Ivey won't go #1 or 2 but he'll go top 4. Other than that, put the top 3 in a popcorn machine and it's anyone's guess.

    As such, I'm not giving up much, if anything, to get #1. I'd be happy with any of the top 4 prospects. I actually like Ivy at #3 and think he might be the best player of the four by the end of their careers.

    So what exactly did you think Sacramento via Philly meant? I am genuinely curious. And when you said Lakers pick what pick were you talking about? Let me guess. The Lakers protected pick is the Lakers pick but the Kings protected pick is the 6ers pick. And that's because that backwards differentiation supports this ridiculous argument we are having?

    I’d be happy with any of the three bigs but if giving up #3 and #17 moved us up to #1 I’d do that in a second to grab Chet.

    I don't think Orlando or OKC is interested in moving down to pick up extra draft picks, unless they somehow LOVE banchero, in which case, they could also just pick him.

    I would be less surprised if the Rockets decided to move down to 5-6-7 and get more Wem-B chances as well as whatever top swingman falls into their lap like AJ Griffin or whoever.

    If the Rockets are "meh" on Banchero, I"d guess that, having missed out on the top 4, especially after an absolutely insane OKC Thunder-level tank job in Portland, the Pistons and Blazers would love to get him (Pistons could move Jerami Grant), Portland could forfeit 24 or 25 FRP's.

    you're literally asking the same questions and it was literally replied above and you're sitting there wondering why I'm acting like you don't know what you're talking about

    No I'm not asking the same question. Why isn't the Lakers pick Philly's pick? Why do you describe that as the Lakers pick but don't describe the pick from Sacramento as Sacramento's pick? Philly owned both. What's the difference?

    As much as I'd love to have control of who we pick, there isn't even a consensus guy out of the three. So I'd give up very little. And besides, it seems like the most likely outcome is Banchero. I'd like to tank for one more year and see if we can't get Wembanyama or Scoot Henderson. Paolo's terrible defense will be a tremendous help in achieving that.
