    Draft starts tomorrow...
  2. 2018 NBA Draft Thread

    Sounds about right.
  3. Trade rumor/suggestion thread

    I doubt that happens. I don't think it happens. I think at this point, just about every team is exploring deals to move up in the draft. Rockets really don't have anything to offer.
  4. Since I wasn't able to get my rankings over to my thread in a timely manner, I intend to make up for that with a team-by-team review, awards for best value picks and trades, along with a few other awards. So let me know what you think and feel free to disagree.
  5. CW21's 2018 NFL Draft Review (Eagles Up)

  6. CW21's 2018 NFL Draft Review (Eagles Up)

    2(49) - Dallas Goedert [TE; South Dakota State] 4(125) - Avonte Maddox [CB; Pittsburgh] 4(130) - Josh Sweat [EDGE; Florida State] 6(206) - Matt Pryor [OT; TCU] 7(233) - Jordan Mailata [OT; Australia] Going into the draft with their 2nd pick going to the Browns as part of the Carson Wentz trade and their 3rd round pick going to the Bills as part of the Ronald Darby trade, it seemed that the Eagles who had only one pick in the first 120 picks were set to trade down from their first round pick. After trading down from their first and picking up a 2019 2nd round pick from the Ravens, they shocked the Cowboys crowd by jumping ahead of Dallas to grab Dallas Goedert. Goedert came into the draft process with quite a bit of hype and some comparisons made to Rob Gronkowski, but his Combine wasn't as good as some had hoped but to grab the guy that most viewed the Cowboys poised to select is a satisfying feeling for Eagles fans. That's not to take away from the Goedert selection whose a really good TE prospect in his own right. It might not be a huge need right now, but they can develop him as their future starting TE. With their second pick, they took a small corner in Avonte Maddox. I don't hate this selection, but I'm not a huge fan of taking shorter corners. I think he's limited to the slot, which I think fits his skillset well. The value on Josh Sweat is great even if the medical red flags probably took him off several team boards. If the Eagles can get 3-4 good years out of him off of his rookie contract, that's considered a huge success and then let someone else pay him the big bucks when those knees give out. Matt Pryor is a solid gamble this late in the draft, but his motivation issues and his struggles to find a consistent playing weight loom large. In terms of adding depth, there's worse additions to make. Don't have any real feelings on Jordan Mailata as he's a rugby player with no experience playing football. This late in the draft, you're drafting your priority UDFA which means they probably didn't have a draftable grade on him. Overall, the Eagles draft was pretty bland but that's to be expected when you only have one pick in the top 120 picks. That limits what the Eagles are able to do in terms of maneuvering around the draft. For what they had, they accomplished it well enough and wouldn't trade any of those picks they dealt away as they became Super Bowl champs because of it. Best Value Pick: Josh Sweat [EDGE; Florida State] Worst Value Pick: Avonte Maddox Grade: C

    Nobody really cares about how Curry was when he first entered the league. We're in a copycat league, and they see what Curry has done the last 5ish years. I've got no doubts that Trae Young will be a top 9 pick.
  8. Trade rumor/suggestion thread

    There's a HUGE difference between being medically cleared and him showing that he's ready to play at a high level. As for the limitations, I'm not sure there's any precedent for that as far as I'm aware. It might be illegal, I don't honestly know. I just don't think I've seen any protections on a pick that wasn't tied to where the pick fell.
  9. 2018 NBA Draft Thread

    Given Steph Curry's presence in the league and the value based put on shooters, it seems a stretch. I mean, I could see someone prefer Sexton/SGA but for him to fall past Chicago at 7 I'd be surprised. And even if Chicago passed on him at 7, I think Cleveland at 8 and New York at 9 would be his absolute floors. I can't see any scenario in which he gets past New York at 9. This smells like someone in that 10-14 range trying to create movement. My guess is Philadelphia or LA Clippers.
  10. Trade rumor/suggestion thread

    The problem is that if Hayward doesn't rebound, they're stuck with an even bigger and longer contract. All for what? They're dumping Chandler Parsons. This is a deal that would make sense if Hayward was healthy.
  11. 2018 NBA Draft Thread

    I was looking at it more from a timing perspective. If a player is shutting down workouts close to the draft, it probably isn't tied to a promise.
  12. 2018 NBA Draft Thread

    That doesn't even make sense. Why would Trae Young, whose been viewed as the top guard prospect for most of the time, suddenly falling down the board?
  13. Trade rumor/suggestion thread

    I doubt it. If they're dumping Parsons, they want cap relief IMO.
  14. Trade rumor/suggestion thread

    No. I don't think any team is going to trade a guaranteed top pick this year for a potential top pick next year. What happens if SAC and LAC 1sts aren't as high as they're projected? They just traded a potential star for a couple of average staters. I don't think Boston has the assets to get Bamba unless they're willing to deal Jaylen Brown.

    Don't expect it from. That's way too much work for me.

    When did Sexton have that workout with the Bulls?

    Do you have to ask that? And WAYTA has like 160 more pages...
  20. Trade rumor/suggestion thread

    If there's any truth that Kawhi is going to tell teams that he'll sign long term only with a Los Angeles team, I don't know how Bamba isn't the only answer.
  21. 2018 NBA Draft Thread

    Rumors have it Ayton, Bagley, Luka, and then Memphis is the first real question mark. I'd bet Dallas goes Bamba and Orlando grabs Trae Young. Memphis seems like either Porter or JJJ in that scenario with Chicago getting whoever Memphis doesn't take.
  22. 2018 NBA Draft Thread

    It might not be ideal, but it shouldn't prevent you from picking them. I mean, what are they going to do? Sit out the year and enter the draft next year? They'd lose enough money and go later in the draft. I mean, even Ricky Rubio threatened never to suit up for the Wolves and he eventually signed his rookie contract.
  23. 2018 NBA Draft Thread

    I mean, we've seen the value of draft picks go up exponentially in recent years. Probably has something to do with Billy King essentially handing his franchise over to the Nets as part of the KG/Pierce trade. I don't think we're going to see very many teams offer up unprotected picks anymore.
  24. 2018 NBA Draft Thread

    Is there anything in Bamba or JJJ's medical history that should scare Memphis off?
  25. 2018 NBA Draft Thread

    Yeah. Memphis is in a bad situation. They don't really have any combination of young players to deal, and they lack flexibility to deal future picks.
