    The As are all mostly nonsense except for all of the ones OKC got

    It is my belief that KOC gave the Pistons a B+ instead of an A for the Ivey pick because it is the final nail the coffin of Killian Hayes ever being more than a back up in Detroit.

    I'm in year 3 of career mode with the Pistons on 2K...Killian Hayes now makes more shots than he misses so I consider that a small victory

    My assumption is they're being cheap and didn't want to pay two mid-first rounders on top of whatever they have to pay Bridges this summer.

    Hollinger thinks Charlotte got good value in that trade, fwiw...

    Wait, did Charlotte win a trade?
    The Hornets could have drafted Duren but opted for Mark Williams instead. While it remains to be seen how history judges that decision, consider that the Hornets also got four second-round picks and a likely pick in the 20-range from Denver in 2023 by surrendering Duren to the Pistons. They could do so because they had both picks 13 and 15; the thought was they might pursue immediate help or a Gordon Hayward salary dump with those picks, but instead they got pretty strong value from a pick they weren’t all that jazzed to use.

    Overall, Charlotte filled a key need without reaching and got value for the other pick; It’s not quite LaMelo Ball, and I don’t love the Hornets giving up a future second just to move up five spots in the second round, but this was one of their better draft days.

    I guess it comes down to preferring Williams to Duren which I don’t agree with. But might help to move Hayward at some point this off-season

    Pacers certainly got more athletic last night. Didn't really understand the Nembhard pick though.

    OKC drafted 4 players who combine to have 28'9" of wingspan. I have no further commentary to give, it's just a team of mutants

    I also think it’s not the worst idea in the world to wait until you have a coach to make a pick, so waiting a year makes a little bit of sense.

    That being said, Kupchak needs to start building a legitimate roster around Lamelo and Bridges, and I’m not sure they’re any closer to that today than they were yesterday.

    man, i don't mean to go full homer here, but the cavs getting the lowest grade of any team when they drafted a guy a ton of sites (including the ringer) mocked to them at 14 is very confusing
