Trade the pick for Chris Paul…. Maybe it will reverse uno card our bad luck.
An all-star level player should be obtainable for the #3 pick + salary (Ant/Nurk).
Who will be available? What other role players are thrown in the trade? That's where it gets interesting!
Moved up from the 5th % spot.
if Trade is the goal now...then Cronin has to have the mind-set that the 3rd pick is worth at least 3 future unknown 1st round picks. He can't be mortgaging much more than the 3rd pick for the players that would be realistically available
if I spelled everything right in this post it's a miracle
Philly and NY fans are pining for Lillard. Just don't see what they have to offer at this point. We can't trade him unless we rake. If we can get a good return for 3 and Simons and keep Grant, then i'm all for it. Keep 23, i like this draft.
Bridges / Claxton for #3 / Simons / Filler is the only trade I’m interested in. And I’m pretty sure the Nets aren’t.
this also assumes Brandon Miller is gone.
#3 for #4 & #20
I’m sure our Braintrust will squeeze every ounce of talent out of our lottery fortune, no doubts. Just look at previous deals if you doubt this. We are in the best possible hands.
There's a clear drop off in talent between 3 and 4, why would we do this?
think it would take way more than 20 to climb up to top 3.
Trade Dame. Rebuild around #3, Sharpe, Ant and the haul we get for Dame. Just bite the bullet and start the rebuild.
Have assumed if we didn't land 1, it'd be traded. So, it's very likely gone. Bummed to not get 1, obviously. But happy we increased trade value by moving in to the top 3.
any time somebody says "rebuild around Ant" I dismiss
I am down for the team to trade it, but it has to be for a stud forward. I just don’t know who that will be.
This draft pick makes it even easier for us to focus on a rebuild.
tank for another year or two, try to get lucky in the lottery to keep building the team for the future
i dont mind keeping dame & 3rd pick, but im just not willing to trade the pick as i just dont believe theres some doable trade that would make us legit contenders
Depends how you feel about Scoot.
If I’m drafting, I’d take Amen at #3 over Scoot, so I’d trade down one spot and grab who I want while accumulating another asset.
IF WE TRADE IT, please turn it and more into some sorta Brown(resigned)/Robert Willams trade.
