    Assuming we can't get Sarr, I'd have no issues with a Williams/Salaun draft.

    If you would take those bottom two players with the 2nd pick, why aren’t they in your Top 3?

    He meant the Blazers' second pick (ie, the Warriors pick), not the second pick overall.

    Because they can be had with the later pick. It's about maximizing position.

    I think Risacher will be the best all around to come out of this draft. I'd rank them Risacher, Sarr and Buzelis in that order.

    With the GS pick I want Salaun, Tyler Smith, Missi or Holland in that order.

    First of the second round picks is Dunn, Dadiet, Bona, Chomche or Onyenso.

    Fourth and final is Hukporti. Simple as that.

    Someone had posted that if we were able to Draft Sarr, we would have Sarr, Simons, Sharpe and Scoot.....S4.

    It has not done well for me this morning.
    Pretty much looking at the 5th pick.

    I would take Buzelis if the other 3 are gone (Risacher, Sarr, and Williams)
    He has a very high ceiling IMO, but he also has a bigger risk factor than the other 3....and I can not explain why I feel that way.

    Exactly and William's wing span is rumored to be 4 inches longer than Buzelis. Hopefully, they all will be measured at the combine.

    my first try...god damn Spurs:

    upload_2024-4-19_9-25-41.png

    and my 2nd try:

    upload_2024-4-19_9-30-13.png

    so, not only did the Spurs win the lottery, again, the Raptors dropped down 1 slot and the Spurs got the 7th pick as a result

    is it possible for Texas to have a San Antonio sized sinkhole?

    I would certainly be looking at him. Honestly, the only players I have little interest in are short shooting guards, and because I am hoping for Scoot to be a star I am hoping we do not need to look at PG's. But I certainly do not want Portland to trade away a shot at CP3 because they have Telfair. At this point though, there is no CP3 in this draft, nor a Scoot that I have heard of. Obviously Sarr, Risacher and Williams are at the top of most boards. I am more interested in comparing Knecht/Holland.
