    Quentin Grimes is very good, as a BPA and replacement for Eric Gordon and House

    Have been big on Mann as well as Sharife Cooper for a while now. I'm also down to take a flyer on a guy like Makur Maker with one of the late frp's.

    Jalen will be gone, he’s who id target if we trade up…but I’d rather keep 23&24

    and get one of
    Murphy/butler/Mann/kispert/bones

    and one of
    thor/juzang/roko/Garubu/dosunmu (haven’t seen him but he seems high potential)

    Good plan, but none of those 3 wings are lock down defenders.

    Good defenders, just not elite. Need at least 1 of those wings to be elite defensively IMO.

    I like Wiescamp over those 3 in any case. Murphy next.

    But Scottie Lewis, Kessler Edwards and Herb Jones are all elite wing defenders.

    I'd be interested in trading up for Kai Jones if he slips.

    Side note, it'ss hard to believe Kai Jones and Damion Jones aren't brothers.

    Isaiah Jackson too, I want a Clint-type player back.

    Bassey might be your guy. I loved him when we had a chance at Cade. If Detroit passes on Cunningham I'm back on Bassey.

    Murphy and Wieskamp are both prototype role players for the modern NBA and could fit with Cade/Mobley/Green/Suggs.

    Thank you for taking the pressure off. I didn't want to be the first one to say that about Maker. I've been coming around to that idea lately. I like how he has transformed himself from a branch to a tree in 1-2 offseasons. He is Mobley lite at 18 yrs old.

    The better Clint Capela comp is Isaiah Jackson.

    Except Jackson is even more explosive and lockdown on perimeter.

    Johnny Juzang, Tre Mann, Greg Brown, Charles Bassey all look nice

    His speed is crazy. Got some ridiculous chase downs and emergency help blocks.

    He seems like a hard worker. I wish we had a very good developmental coach for these semi- unicorn types. I'm not sure how good Silas is at that. @D-rock

    We have John Lucas who is great shooting coach.

    Sam Cassell is another great development coach too (76ers).
