    No....there are too many people who needs the ball in their hand, I would get rid of Wood. I believe KPJ and Paolo are from the same area and Green claim Paolo is his Lil brother...

    Really hope somebody wants Banchero in the top 2.

    If the expected top 2 are off the board, then Ivey only by the slightest bit, but I have very little preference among these 3 and Murray. If they were to take Banchero it wouldn't bother me. The other 3 have dangerously low floors, and Banchero has a lower ceiling IMO than I would like this high in the draft

    If Jabari is gone before we pick I'll take Ivey and trade KPJr.
    I think John Collins fits better to this team than Banchero so here's my proposed trade:
    Wood + KPJr. + Gordon + Nwaba for J. Collins + Gallinari + #16pk makes a lot sense for both teams

    why the Hawks do it:
    Collins wants out of Atlanta, Wood will be a solid replacement of Collins and compliment to Capella.
    Hawks desperately need a 2nd play-maker behind Trae, KPJr. will be perfect next to Trae.
    E.Gordon gives them another play-maker off bench and huge upgrade over Gallo defensively.
    Nwaba gives them much needed defensive help at the wing.

    Trae / KPJr. / Hunter / Wood / Capella with E.G./ Bogdan / Huerter / Okongwu off-bench

    why the Rockets do it:
    this is assumed Jabari/Chet goes #1/#2 and we got Banchero and Ivey left at #3 i'd take Ivey over Banchero
    John Collins is a proven 20/10 40%3pt player (19-20 season) and is only 24yr., to me it's better take the chance on Banchero.
    i don't know how the opposite team can stop a Green/Ivey back-court, just too fast to keep up with. Ivey will need to learn how to run a winning team but he's smart and i just have much more confidence with him than KPJr.
    and we can combine the #16+#17 to move up like how we moved up to #16 to get Sengun. something like #16+#17 for #13 to get Tari Eason.
    Gallo's expiring contract is only partially guaranteed so he'll be waived and saved Tillman a lot of money

    J.Ivey / J.Green / J.Tate / J.Collins / Sengun with Christopher / Mathews / KMJr. / Eason / Garuba off-bench


    there's still a slim chance the Magics being stupid and take Banchero #1 and let Jabari slip to #3 tho.:p

    Hoping for Chet

    but I’ll take any of the big 3. Just happy to get a top 3 pick

    1) Chet
    2) Paolo
    3) Jabari

    in that order

    I would also be fine with Ivey if they went with him
