If Miller drops, trade Simons and run it back with Dame.
He turns 33 in July
Simons + Nas + #3 for Siakam + #13
Nurk + 13 + 23 for the best center available.
Not even remotely close to apples to apples. You're comparing CJ's second season, where he played 30-some-odd games in his first season, to Anfernee's 5th season, where he has had over 200 games of experience.
Either way, in their most recent seasons (as Blazers) they have virtually the same AST/TO numbers, and everyone knows CJ was ass at PG.
CJ is finally playing PG for the Pels - and had the lowest PER season of his career (where he was actually consistently playing) and second-lowest win shares.
Beg to differ. Ant can shoot when he is on but he is streaky.
Dame knows and Porter knew how to run an offense.
Ant hasn't the slightest clue IMO. When he is playing "PG", the offense seems to grind to a halt.
I would trust Skylar Mays with running a decent offense much more than I would trust Ant (or Keon - another psuedo-PG).
We have differing opinions but from my perspective, if we trade Dame and Ant is our anointed PG, I'll plan on regular trips to the lottery.
Yeah we have to remember if Sharpe had played one year college and was in this draft where would he be? 2? 3? 5-8?
I’m thinking he might be top 4?
If Sharpe played in college, he would play close to how he played in our last 10 games all year long. He'd be 2 or 3
We’d get a lot more for Lillard, that’s for sure.
Do we go with BPA (Scoot) and then try to trade out of the logjam? How many more 6'2" guards does this team need?
which is still a long ways to go to 35. Good grief do some research then post
So in your mind, college experience doesn't matter? You think that guys magically get better sitting on the bench? I heard Steve Kerr today lamenting the lack of development of young players because during the season teams average 1-2 practices a week. Young guys who don't play much basically rot on the bench in the NBA because of a lack of opportunity & coaching. It wasn't until Ant's 4th year in the league where he got decent game minutes, where as CJ never averaged less then 30 in college... plus he was coached regularly in many more practices. There is no question which guy was more prepared for NBA game play in their 23rd year, so you're right... not even remotely close to apples to apples.
Who would charlotte likely pick? Miller or Henderson?
We're going to trade down in the draft for 2 of this year's OKC's draft picks and 1 of their protected 1st round picks next year.
They we're going to package those 3 1st round picks and Ant and Nurk for something good.
Are you Masai Ujiri?
Seems like everyone's sad we didn't get Wemby. Okay, but there will be a perennial all-star available at #3 - the trick is picking him.
Cam Whitmore, anyone?
If we trade this pick to get some late 20's rung-below-all star player to keep Dame happy, I'm a Spurs fan for the next decade. But I don't think that's Cronin's plan, to be honest.
What will be interesting is if Scoot drops to #3. Then the shit really hits the fan.
An all-star level player should be obtainable by USING the #3 pick
Whitmore is my pick also
I’d start learning about the Alamo if I were you. FYI, it has no basement
