    Why?

    he's nothing special. He's barely over 6" tall, and not a good shooter.

    I just like picking up NBA kids because they seem to be better than projected.

    But yeah, if he's only 6 inches tall it wouldn't make much sense.

    I'd rather get Ron Harper's kid, who played against Pippen Jr. in that game.

    I don't know a player who is only 6 inches tall would be tough to guard provided he had elite speed. He could easily get into the paint and drop it off to bigs.

    If you think we can get a “truly impactful player” with this pick that fits Dame’s timeline…YOU are sadly mistaken.

    This.

    We aren’t getting an impactful vet with the #7th pick that’ll make us more than first round fodder.

    The fact is… trading the 7th pick for a vet is going to improve our title odds 0%.

    Keeping the 7th pick is going to improve our odds by .01% because there is a “chance” we get a star/superstar.

    To me it’s a pretty clear and obvious choice.

    Name one we can get. If you can't then this is a HUGE mistake which is my entire point.

    This, but I'd bump those odds up to like 5%+ with us drafting someone if we find the hidden All-Star super star at 7 or lower. That IS possible. Getting a player that helps us win the title who is a vet in a trade is not gonna happen unless it's Ben Simmons and then it's a crap shoot. Literally nobody available can be had that cheap outside of Simmons and most of the board hates him (perhaps with good reason) so I mean is that even a thing and would the Nets give up on him this soon?
