    We had a shot at Adebayo. He was built like a man coming out but many didn't think he was worthy as a top ten pick.

    LOL..."throwing away"....Those games were meaningless and they became meaningless when Dame went out

    and I'm not so dumb that I would expect any single transaction, trade or draft pick, to alter the trajectory

    We could have but we took the kid from Zaga.

    We could have had both John Collins and OG Anunoby.

    Hell if you go back to 2013, we could've had Giannis playing with Dame.

    I think Murray could be gone Detroit or Indy.
    Sochan one hell of a defender and good size. He could surprise like Adebayo?

    That would have been no pick because it would go to Chicago.

    Exactly. It's gonna be multiple moves over the next 2 years to shape this team. Doesn't mean after the moves they do this year, along with a healthy Dame, and further development of Ant & Nas, it can't be a successful , and potentially special season.

    This is what I see happening just based on what I've read. I think we will trade 7 for 13 and 15. I think we will trade 13 to the Pistons for Grant and I think we might even get fleeced into adding the Bucks 2025 first. I think we'll take Dieng with the 15th pick and our front office will celebrate like we pulled off some kind of miracle.

    to be honest I dont believe in this draft there is a huge difference between 7&12th picks.

    DJJ and that pick for Larry who we traded like he was salary filler.

    Bam is a playmaker and the Heat often run the offense through him.

    Duren is athletic, but is closer to James Wiseman than Bam.

    I agree completely about Duren. He's the rim protector we need.

    Wait so we get to trade up and acquire Grant by adding that pick that will likely be in the high 20s three years from now?
