    I'd agree, I think it matters simply in tier cutoff scenarios......if it is the difference between Morant or Barrett.......or the difference between Reddish or Culver, I'm burning the pick....in both cases for the Duke guy. That is more of what I was alluding to......if you get to a cliff and the pick is the difference between getting the last guy before that dip or the first guy after it, those are the scenarios where you invest the capital.

    If you just end up in a tier with multiple players available, then sure, just make the pick.

    He's more of a PF than a C.

    With all the injuries we have I'd imagine our rotations look something like this.

    PG - Sexton
    SG -Clarkson
    SF - Osman
    PF - Chriss/Nance
    C - Zizic/Nance

    We don't have a whole lot of healthy bodies so I'd imagine he'll get plenty of playing time.

    But Love and TT are both very close to returning. What then?

    Smith is tradeable after the Finals. His greatest value is when a team decides after the Finals that they want more space for free agents.

    There's risk in doing that. Though it does clear some space, but you also have to hand over some assets. After tomorrow at 3PM, I believe JR Smith will be the only way a team can clear cap space before the free agency period starts. I don't think there's any other guy that signed a deal from the old CBA with an option like that.

    Swapping out Smith for Crabbe would put the Nets in a place where they could give Russell his tender and have two max slots.

    It just depends on what the Front Office / Coaching Staff wish to accomplish the rest of the season. We have no reason to win. If Love or TT even roll an ankle I'm gonna bet we'll shut down them down for the season.

    I always felt that Nance is more of a backup PF that could play spot SF... His body is just too brittle to play center even with todays NBA... Hoping he plays more to that trend once the frobtcourt is all healthy

    No idea where or if any of these guys will be drafted but most aren't talked about like the Duke 3 and a handful of others. This is just the start of my own list and you will mostly see guards/SFs on here because I am partial to efficient scorers from long range also.

    Xavier Johnson, 6-3 guard, Pittsburgh
    Nickeil Alexander-Walker, 6-5 guard, Virginia Tech
    Keldson Johnson, 6-6 guard, Kentucky
    Jordan Nwora, 6-7 F, Louisville
    Zach Norvell Jr, 6-5 Guard, Gonzaga
    Charlie Brown, 6-7, F, St. Joseph's
    Jaylen Nowell, 6-4, G, Washington
    Devon Dotson, 6-2, G, Kansas
    Sam Hauser, 6-8, G, Marquette
    Tyler Hall, 6-5, G, Montana State *amazing shooter
    De'Andre Hunter, 6-7, G, Virginia
    Darius Garland, 6-2, G, Vanderbilt
    Anthony Lamb, 6-6, F, Vermont

    I hope when Love comes back this is where Nance gets his minutes. The coaching staff haven't done a good enough job driving home the idea that he needs to become a 3 pt shooting threat. He needs to play PF and SF so he has no other choice but tomorrow on that part of his game. Push him out to the 3 point line and make him decide what to do from there. Using him at the high post just doesn't help him develop in his areas of need.

    Alexander Walker and Hunter are my guys. they just seem like NBA players to me. They will be 10 year vets and good shooters which we need. They might go slightly higher than our pick tho.,..

    Clarkson has value and we devalue him because he is useless on a rebuilding team. But instant offense off the bench even with zero defense is a very important skill to a championship contender. I expect to get some value, but not a ton.

    Going to take more than this for me to forgive Koby for the awful trades last year

    Also, not going to get super excited about non lottery picks until I see more proof we can draft

    Then you have nothing to say until the draft ? I love how people think GMs around the league are great and Cavs always suck. Look how many teams have never won a championship Milwaukee’s last was when they had jabbar. We won one cuz lbj was born here The “great” gms are in big market desirable cities. That being said kobi would not of f upped the Davis situation like magic did

    I wish they would clean house before the draft. Maybe get Walton for head coach? looks like he may be on his way out of L.A

    I like Walton pretty well.

    The other guy I like is Jerry Stackhouse. He gets guys in the Gleague to play together and is a defensive mind. Both things we really need. He has been in the league. I dunno why, but that type of glue guy as a player usually ends up a good coach. He has real coaching experience too unlike a guy like Kidd who I am not a believer in.

    I would totally be fine with Walton. It hasn't been fair to him sort of like it wasn't with Blatt. I'm surprised at how pedestrian Walton's offense is. He was such a good passer and read offense so well as a player.
