    Don't let facts get in the way of a good strawman

    That is how I feel about the freshmen in the drafts as well. They are going to defer to older players when they enter college. They are going to try to fit in with their teammates. This is why I dismiss any critiques about a freshman not being aggressive enough or he disappeared at times during the game. Just focus on their potential, not their stats.

    That's a great comparison, he is like Pat but with much less athleticism.

    Fine if we want a guy that can develop into a bench player a few years from now. Not really an ideal pick at #7 though.

    This year's 2nd round could see quite a few rotation players that make it in the NBA. There's about 10 players I really like there. Unless we move some contracts, I'm not sure we actually take a 2RP, which sucks. Scheierman and Mogbo would be a nice 2nd round haul.

    This year that's probably the most likely outcome of anybody taken #7.

    I think Knecht is a good fit for Charlotte at #6. Maybe the Hornets go with Clingan in which Knecht would be an option for us.
    But if our board's mock draft is any indication of how things will turn out, the Blazers should have Cody, Holland, Salaun, and Clingan to choose from. Tuesday's mock in this forum will be interesting.

    The news of blazers. . I mean trail blazer's interest in moving up is likely because schmitz loves a player he believes will not be available at 7. I have a feeling we'll move into 3 in a deal with houston

    My guess is it would be contingent on Risacher slipping to 3.

    Highly unlikely now, he seems to be overtaking Sarr for #1 overall

    Sarr might end up going 3. I would take any of him, Zach or Clingan for Grant.

    Houston is the most obvious move up target @ 3 for a 2nd Top 10 pick. It will cost one of Ant or Grant, IMHO. Make it BOTH and FVV is part of the deal (probably with Jabari Smith Jr).

    The other target? Charlotte.
    With the Spurs lurking at 8 — theoretically ready to scoop up Salaun or Williams …
    … get #6 and take both.

    I think Atlanta or Houston might be a good fit. Who can they realistically get with their picks that would be better than Ayton, Simons, or Grant? I don't see a lot of options for them. I'd be thrilled to get Sarr for Grant and change. Though imo, I think Ant makes more sense for Houston unless they are out on Bari.

    Based on rumors you heard? Or just speculation?

    I don't see any way that Risacher lives up to being the number one pick.
