2021 NBA Draft Thread


Recommended Posts

Also if you're going to use the "he's just a winner" argument for Suggs, you can't ignore the fact that Gonzaga was 31-2 the previous season with Ryan Woolridge starting at PG putting up almost identical production to Suggs. @Kirill

Like @beekay414 I really just cannot see why people are projecting Franz Wagner as a lottery pick. I legit don't even have a first round grade on him. 

he is the most overrated prospects in the draft thats projected to go lottery.

Also with @Kirill's he's a winner argument it's interesting to see that when you look back at teams that either won the title or made it to the title game, very few of those teams produced pros that went on to become great NBA players. 

Over the last decade the only All-Star players that have been in a title game while in college and then went on to become an All-Star in the NBA are Anthony Davis, Julius Randle, Gordon Hayward, and Kemba Walker.

In the proposed trade scenario, the Warriors would be sending a package that includes James Wiseman, Kelly Oubre Jr., and the No. 14 overall pick in the 2021 NBA Draft to the Rockets in exchange for Wood and Eric Gordon. Before they could push through with the trade, the Warriors would first need to convince Oubre Jr. to agree to a sign-and-trade deal to Houston.

 

The heck?

How do the Thunder get Mobley to go along with SGA, Dort and Poku?

#6, #16, 24’ Houston 1st to Cleveland for #3…

The Thunder would definitely have to take back Love's deal.

The best the Warriors can do with Wiseman, Oubre Jr, and #14 is Gordon/Wood? 

I'd love the move for Houston though. They'd be adding Wiseman who is a similar, but not as good, prospect to Mobley plus an additional lottery pick. If this deal were to go through I think the best case scenario for the Rockets would be landing Green at #2, Giddey at #14, then target guys like Trey Murphy and Miles McBride with their other 2 first round picks.

if that trade was made i would try and package 14 and one of the late 1sts to move in the top 10 and target Jalen Johnson.

Kuminga over Suggs bruh put down the crackpipe

The draft is about projection. What can a player become, not what a player currently is today. I think the 2017 draft class is a perfect example of this. Read Lonzo Ball's scouting reports, they're almost identical to what people are saying about Jalen Suggs. He went #2 overall, people weren't very high on Donovan Mitchell who was seen as a chucker but had elite physical tools. If you could go back now do you think any team takes Lonzo over Mitchell?
