    I could definitely see Collins and 16 if the Hawks are amenable. I mean especially with our guy Schmitz there to get us the big time upside guys. That being said, I think we'll wait and see who is there at 7 before we pull the trigger but at the same time it seems like Cronin's M.O. is to have things buttoned up early.

    It sounds like Mathurin will go to Detroit or Indiana which would be great.

    What if Murray fell to #7? Would fans just take him and be thrilled, or would they rather Collins (#16?).

    I don't like the Grant/Collins pairing at the forward positions.

    I'd also look to swap Grant for Collins now... But I'm sure Dame would not be supportive of that.

    I really like Murray.... but I feel like Murray and Grant duplicate efforts. We need a good on ball/point of attack defender and Murray and Grant aren't that guy. I'm not sure what I would do.

    I want Daniels or Sharpe, in that order. If we trade down I like Duren or Griffin.

    Daniels makes so much sense now.

    Sochan seems like he would be able to start Day 1 next to Grant. He is super aggressive on defense without picking up a ton of fouls, he guards just about every position, I think he fills our needs better than anyone else. I know that people say take the BPA when you're this high in the draft and that's probably true, I would just like to find a way to get Sochan.

    I think the only guy who can start day 1 for this roster is Murray... But that should not be a criteria for the selection

    Murray doesn’t make sense with Grant

    They’re both PFs

    Theyre both 6'8 and mobile. Line between sf and pf is blurred nowadays anyway

    That and Grant weighs all of like 210 lbs soaking wet.

    I think the two could co-exist...

    Nassir feels like the best fit next to Grant to shore up his rebounding deficiency.

    Both would get torched defensively, although I’m not as high on Keegan as you are. Keegan is below-average defensively IMO.

    Particularly on-ball wise. It’s a less than ideal combination. We wouldn’t have a single above average (on ball) defender in our lineup.

    Sure they could co-exist.
    How do you feel about having 5 below average on ball defenders in a lineup?

    Then Dame, Ant(most likely), Jerami and Keegan all getting blown by?

    FWIW it’s also how I feel about John Collins. Can’t have both him and Grant.
