    Remember when the Blazers told Farried that he was the pick then we end up with Nolan Smith… LOL. Just sayin since there’s a lot of Sharpe rumors

    Tomorrow will be nice.

    Speculation turns into reality.

    Of course, speculation part II starts with respect to trades, etc. Still, be nice to get this never-ending 47-threads with 140 pages each to come to an end (well, some will still post "I told ya's" & Shoulda/Woulda/Coulda's).

    Ha Ha Ha! If there was any chance at all of him slipping to 7th the Blazers would be absolutely crazy to pass on that opportunity?
    WTF? No chance it happens but how could they not take Chet at 7?

    They should be. I think he will be a good player. Surprised folks here dislike him so much.

    I'm a Chet "hater" and I take him at 7 easy. I mean there are other guys I'd rather have, but not many and I think you have to take him due to the upside. You can also trade him as a prospect, but probably you just keep him and see.

    Yeah if he goes full unicorn after passing him up at 7 this board would blow up.

    I had a mega meltdown on Blazersedge when we took CJ rather than my preferred pick...some scrub named Giannis.

    Rightfully so. The CJ pick was bad from the start. I supported him sure but many of us knew from the beginning that was not who they needed next to Lillard.

    Yup. Hayward is also a $30m expiring in 2023-2024 for any teams wanting cap space for that summer. There looks to be a lot of big names that summer.

    I honestly might start Little with Grant, and have have Hayward be a sixth man who can play up to 33mpg a night, with the other forward being a guy like Daniels or Sochan. You need Little and Grant to offset Dame and Ant defensively. Not sure who we draft with that pick, but we desperately need a big who can dominate defensively soon. I lean more and more towards drafting Duren if we get the CHO pick.

    Dame/Ant/Nas/Grant/____
    Ant/Hart/Hayward/(Daniels/Sochan)/Duren
    Keon/Keon/____/Watford/Brown III
    That’s not including Covington TPE, MLE

    I would be really excited to see what we can do defensively, especially if we find a way to bring Thybulle on board too.

    If we can take Sharpe, I think the movie is take Sharpe and then sign-and-trade Ant once free agency starts.

    Dame
    Hart
    ??
    Grant
    Nurk

    Groom Sharpe as the SGoTF.

    That might be the move, but it almost certainly won't happen. I'm open to trading Ant, but I'd be shocked if he gets traded this year.

    i don't see why we need to move Ant. We can easily give Sharpe 20-25 mpg off the bench early on. Hell, even that might be too much for him. Kuminga averaged only 19 mpg his rookie year and was a spot starter.

    Because we need comparable talent at small forward and I think Ant is the only resource that we have to make the move realistically, while still having Sharpe to develop off the bench. That's my way of thinking anyway.
