Fuuuuuck man, just take Sochan or Daniels.
Cost controlled. Room for improvement. HEALTHY.
Indifferent and as though I would trust one of the NBA's all-time defensive greats to figure it out. That's what benches and rotations are for.
You're entitled to your opinions, but I've noticed that they all tend to be of the extreme variety, and frankly, I don't have a lot of interest in debating those.
While I’m not against drafting and starting Sochan (eventually), I think we should start the season starting with Nas and Grant.
If you get Hayward, you trade whatever you need with #13 and the 2nd rounders up or stay put for Sochan. Then draft Sharpe/Mathurin/Daniels with #7. I’d be elated to possibly have Nas and Grant starting and having 6’6 Hart, 6’7 Daniels, 6’7 Hayward, 6’9 Sochan, and 6’8 Watford on the bench where Daniels is the immediate ball handler and decision maker behind Dame and Ant on the depth chart.
Chauncey can turn Daniels into something.
Daniels scoring based on his usage was incredibly efficient actually.
But we don’t need scoring.
We need defense. And players that can stay healthy.
and both of those players are projected lotto picks because if they can make a stupid 3pt shot they have elite 2 way potential
OG personally imo doesn’t take us to contender status.
we have a *chance* if whoever we draft *booms*.
that’s the risk we need to take imo.
getting grant is huge, it puts us in a really good position, therefore, teams wont have leverage to use against us in a potential trade
if we cant add another established player on our terms, we just change the course and draft someone
We'll have the summer to barter as well. Other good players will be available for a much lesser price. Probably not quite as good as OG but still. We have other assets to get another wing.
Draymond Green can't score either, but he can help you win championships.
Good point. The 7th pick is a very steep price to me. Haven't had a pick this high in 10 years.
Indiana hasn't had a top 10 pick since 1989. I don't hear about them shopping their pick.
pacers are tearing it down or thats what media says
I'd rather keep #7 and take Murray, Sharpe, Mathurin.
Absent that, Dort and Duren at #12
Why are we interested in Dort when we have Ant, Dame, and Hart? Is the thought that they would trade one of them if we got Dort? Otherwise I don’t see the appeal.
Hart might get moved for a better piece.
Dort/Hart would be the start of building an elite bench.
However, Sharpe’s potential is too good to pass up.
*If* it’s Dort + 12 + Future First I *might* be able to be convinced. Especially if Sochan is still there at 12, who I think could be BPA @ 7.
But I think they’re doing too much. Trying to get too cute. Drafting BPA @ 7 is the move.
In some of the discussions, teams have asked.
I can’t imagine any of the better pieces that Hart would be moved for, besides OG. But if it’s Hart + 7th, we better be getting a future first back…
