    could be wrong but the preferred target for both Detroit and Indiana should be Ivey.

    Cronin would be a hero to me if he moved up in the draft and grabbed Sharpe or Ivey.
    I don't care what he gives up, though I wouldn't want it to be Simons. If it's Murray we want, I wouldn't want to give up as much.
    We could send Josh Hart, whom I love, to Sacramento and create playing time for Sharpe or Ivey at guard.
    A future backcourt of Ivey or Sharpe and Simons could be special.

    could be, but im just assuming hell be drafted at 4 and that pistons & pacers wont trade up

    the kings are looking to trade down to get the guy they like or maybe get an established nba player in order to compete

    Yeah, which is why the trade idea of swapping 4 and 6 between Indiana and Sacramento makes sense for both teams. Ivey went to school in Indiana, too.

    I'm pretty sure Sacramento wants to trade out of the 4th pick, since Ivey doesn't seem to want to go there (who does?).
    So I'm also pretty sure Detroit, Indiana, and Portland are giving offers to Sacramento.
    Sacramento could actually end up with a great draft for once.
    Edit: I doubt Sharpe is excited about going to Sacramento either. Murray seems to be the best fit in the top 7, or Mathurin.

    he's from the South Bend area cuz his mom coached at Notre Dame, went to Purdue. Having lived in Indy for almost a decade, I know how much their ownership/branding revolves around "growing basketball" in the community.

    I'm not really interested in Ivey honestly. I was listening to a few podcasts and they said that he's similar to Ja Morant in a lot of ways, but he's not nearly as good as Ja.

    I love his bank shots. He didn't always overpower other players to get points near the hoop. Reminds me of Tim Duncan there. And of course his 40% 3-point shooting.

    He's bigger than Ja and shoots 3-pointers better. He's fast as hell. Think Russell Westbrook or John Wall.
    He is NOT a point guard (at least not now). But with a guy with that speed I want him to think score first.

    he's miscast as a PG. He needs the ball in his hands, yes, but his playmaking leaves a lot to be desired. He would work perfectly next to bigger PGs like Cade or Haliburton.

    My comp for him has always been Donovan Mitchell.

    Wouldn't necessarily move the needle immediately, but we could do FAR worse in this draft than Ivey at 7 lol

    i have ivey in my tier 1 in this draft. we should thank our lucky stars if there are that many teams that let him fall. Also think he's ROY if he goes to the right team.

    I will always be a risk taker, I want championships so the draft gives you perfect opportunity to get a super star go for the guy with most potential to be superstar unless there’s a red flag with attitude or work ethic

    He's also just really fun to watch. I know that's not quantifiable and probably shouldn't be a decider or needle-mover, but there's something to be said for having guys you like watching on your team...

    i've been reading the kings are into Collins. That fit makes no sense to me with Sabonis.

    They like Sabonis at center, but still not a good fit.

    It's the Kings. Nothing they do makes sense.

    I would not mind if it was us getting Collins. (and 16) Yes we need defense at PF and he is only "average",
    but IMO we desperately need some offense from that position as well. We can use 16 to grab a defensive PF.
    I just don't see many healthy options out there that provide both skills at the 4 spot.

    What Sacramento should do is draft IV and build around him. If De'Aaron fox is not a good fit trade him for whatever they can get.
