    I love the results of the lottery last night. Hopefully teams wont tank as much for the 1st pick moving forward.

    Hello darkness, my old friend
    I'd love the results of the lottery if the Lakers hadn't jumped from 11 to 4. That was a huge thing for them. They had no plausible path to getting Davis and now they do.

    WE WERE ROBBED!!!!!!! At least we will get AD out of this like we've wanted all along. Feel for Zion though. Was hoping he'd go to NY, that would have been bananas. Playing alongside KD or Kyrie!

    This is the type of thing I'd try to do if I was the GM of a team that needs to rebuild.

    people keep saying the Pels should trade for Ingram. But Ingram was recently diagnosed with blood clot(s). That's what ended Chris Bosh's career

    If you are Memphis, would you even consider anyone other than Morant? (Or Zion) I cannot see him sliding to 3.
    I understand how good RJ Barrett is, but I don't really see New Orleans getting Zion and Ja.
    Ja or Zion would fill the seats, RJ Barrett....not as much.

    I think Morant is going to end up being the best player in this draft.

    If I'm David Griffin, I'm already talking to the Grizz about dealing for the #2. Basically tell 'em straight up, "We're going to deal AD either to NY or LA for their pick and other assets; which team's assets would be more attractive to you as part of a trade up to #2"?

    Buncha damn whiners in here I swear...

    When the Blazers moved up from the 6th to the 1st pick with only 5.3 chance of winning the top pick.

    We were ecstatic.

    Lakers get top 4 now the NBA is rigged.

    Jesus... Listen to how y'all sound...

    To follow up on this--if you're Memphis, would you trade down from 2 to 3 (or 4) for the privilege of offloading Chandler Parsons' contract?
    NOP-->NYK: Anthony Davis
    NYK-->MEM: #3 pick
    MEM-->NOP: #2 pick, Chandler Parsons

    Understand, I realize that NO can get more than just the pick for AD, I'm just listing that as a base for a deal.

    As long as Jeanie is in charge, they will find a way to screw it up.

    I think something like that works out pretty well for all involved. The Pelicans were scouting Kevin Knox at the end of the season so he'd probably be added to what NO would be getting. I think Memphis is a good fit for Barrett (not that Ja isn't) so they'd probably be okay moving down a spot for the savings but maybe the Knicks would have to throw them a future pick too.

    I like this for the Pelicans more than the Lakers crap platter. I'd also look into dealing Jrue somewhere like Boston who has 3 1st rounders or some future ones like the Memphis pick that didn't convey this year.

    It's like an NBA2K dream scenario.

    That of course depends on who you want and how you value them. It could be a great deal, but then again why would Knicks take on Parsons if they know you want one Morant or Barrett. Seems like they would just call your bluff unless you made the deal more reasonable. I think also Memphis would have to value those two equally or value differently than the rest of the league.

    I wouldn't. I'd keep Jrue around. Getting Knox along with the pick for Morant would be outstanding. Ja/Jrue/Knox/Zion seems like an outstanding core.

    Knicks wouldn't be taking Parsons, Pels would. Knicks would simply give the #3 (and Knox, as hj suggested) for AD. Pels would take Parsons' contract off Memphis' hands for the privilege of moving up from 3 to 2.

    Maybe this was already asked, but is anyone excited about our pick in this draft? I had to move up to single digits before I found anyone I was half interested in. Seems like a great year to trade out and clear some salary or upgrade. The problem is that all those salaries we have been whining about expire at the end of next season. Wish we could make some kind of bench consolidation trade of Leonard + Pick (Olynyk, Covington, etc.).
