    Even putting Dunn v the wings is gonna be very interesting.

    Credit where credit is due. Arranging this sorta workout is not easy in this day and age.

    One looks like a LOT more value for someone you would expect to contribute right away.

    As for the 3x3 matchups, some of those are pretty interesting and I can see Dunn going full bulldog trying to shut everyone down.

    The Dunn pick only makes sense if they’re convinced he’s an absolute shut down defender

    Maybe they want to see what Holland can do against an elite defender though?

    Say what you will about DRTG, but Dunn's was 89 this season. That is insanely low.

    Draft Jamal Shead and Dunn and play them as part of a unit with Matisse and NEITHER side would score.

    And he can space the floor so that Scoot can have a better chance at getting to the hoop without running into a brick wall of multiple players and getting shut down like he does now a lot.

    Maybe McCain was the only player we were really interested in in that group workout. I bet he interviews REALLY well. I would not be amazed to see him at #14 (and would hope that that would mean we had a trading partner for Anfernee).

    I like Knecht, but it's easier to find his profile than a guy like Salaun or Ware. Scarcity matters.

    This is it. See how Tidjane and Ron do against elite defense.

    The upside with Holland is kind of tempting. Something is always alluring to me about drafting players that have a chip on their shoulder

    might be the case. Going by the lists, if it is on the move doesn't seem like it would be headed to Portland

    but it might be too early in the workout phase to jump to conclusions. Salaun sure has worked out for a lot of teams
