    I am going on record that I will eat my hat if we draft Knecht at 7. He is not a Cronin type player. And I'm kind of glad. Plus if Cronin believes in Sharpe then Knecht will have to be a complementary player and he's the kind of player where he's either your star or he's not much use. Cronin takes a big swing with the high picks and then picks players with high floors with the lower picks. (Rupert was an exception, but I think they were surprised he was there.)

    If Kris Murray is a Cronin-type-player, so is Knecht.

    Kris Murray has no business being in the NBA. He got drafted because of Keegan.

    He is going to be a sieve on defense, so you might as well consider him a blazer.

    It’s all gonna hinge on his shooting. If he can get his percentage up around 37-38% I think he will stick.

    I'd say #23 in the 2023 draft might be comparable to #14 in the 2024 draft.

    To me, Knecht is certainly better than Murray though.

    At shooting and scoring for sure. I think Murray might be a better defender.

    Agreed on both fronts!

    I'll put it this way: If the team who drafts Knecht calls Portland right after and offers him for Murray, straight up, I'm taking the deal in a split-second.

    Murray is definitely a better defender.

    Yep... and Knecht is definitely the better offensive player.

    This has Dalton Knecht going to OKC or Sacramento, which makes sense to me.
