    Wait? Who had the Blazers choosing Sharpe at 7? Honestly. Who called that?

    He was the mystery man but I think it was well(ish) known.

    90% of this forum wanted Shaedon on draft day. go back and look at the thread.

    You didn't actually list Williams, so he makes 12.
    Edey could go before our pick. Devin Carter is another lottery possibility. If someone is enamored with Missi or Ware, one of them could conceivably jump up. And of course, in a "terrible" draft like this one, there are always surprises that nobody sees coming. Ja'kobe Walter, Johnny Furphy, Daron Holmes... any one of them (or others) could conceivably blow some team away in an individual workout and get picked way earlier than anticipated.

    The idea that we would take a guy like Knecht with our 7th pick... a guy who is the same size as Shaedon but has just had the time to get his shot right and put on some muscle... this is disgusting. We need wings with length whether it's for the 3 or the 4 and this isn't that dude. Hopefully this is just a favor for an agent. Hopefully we're also not looking at Clingan. This predraft process has been depressing so far. Hopefully in the next three weeks we get shit figured out.

    I don't trust Joe. He better not fuck this up!

    We better be drafting on high upside and trading away the guys that have already basically shown their limitations... otherwise this is worse than a clusterfuck.

    They don’t play the same. Knecht can play off ball more. I see Shae as a two and Knecht as a three.

    I'm going to do that. I kinda remember a kid that didn't play in college and was not expected to be drafted in the top 10.
    When I have some time to sit and really look I will go back and check it out. I'm absolutely certain 90% were not thinking Shaedon Sharpe before draft day. Now the statement you made though is "On draft day" so maybe that is the point that could be close? When on draft day are we talking? After the 6th pick? or is that before the draft started? IDK? Just seems a bit more murky to me the way it all went down?

    Good catch on Williams. All those guys you mentioned could move up depending on team needs, but I think it would be Dillingham and Salaun that they would drop....not Williams and Holland. If we want either it needs to be at 7.

    Givony said Clingan just finished a private workout with the Blazers.

    I just saw that too. So they did that without any publicity.

    So much for privacy....

    This screams smokescreen to me.

    I don’t know brother.
    Sure is looking like most were talking about Daniel’s Duren Sochan.
    Most mocks had Sharpe going to the Knicks at 11 as the best bet.
