    Suggs is the perfect guy to take over for Lowry

    What does Cleveland do, they have a few scoring guards and maybe they prefer a Kuminga or Barnes over Green.

    Yeah I like him. Was a big fan of him at Gonzaga. And I agree with you, seems humble and not want the big spotlight.

    I don’t think it does

    it was a right to swap picks if it was outside the top 4

    Just pick Scottie Barnes to terrorize people with the 30 games that Isaac is healthy

    As much as anything, this might mean the Pistons actually fill 2/3 of the arena for the first time in like 10 years. As dumb as that is, it's probably as important as how good Cunningham (or Mobley or whoever) actually plays. The level of fan apathy since the title team broke up with the Billups trade was the worst in the NBA.

    we’re really good at getting the pick right after the prospect tiers drop significantly and we’re left with scraps imo

    2018: bamba at 6, trae was picked 5

    2017: isaac at 6, deaaron fox picked at 5

    2015: hezonja at 5, porzingas picked at 4

    2014: gordon at 4, embiid picked at 3

    I don't think garland/sexton is a tenable backcourt long term. I think they prefer Okoro as a 2, but I'm not sure about that (he needs to make a leap on offense before he's a viable starter anyway though)

    Givony just posted a mock that I don't think I can c/p because it has too many pictures, but has Orlando picking Kuminga and Keon Johnson and it almost brought me down from the high I'm on it is so sad.

    I think you end up with one of Barnes, Kuminga or Sengun. Sengun seems all over the map right now in terms of rankings, but the analytics guys seem to love him and he lit up whatever league he played in last year.
