Trade rumor/suggestion thread

Recommended Posts

First round picks have different value based on where teams are at. Older teams that are contenders who don't have much cap space to work with? Late firsts are really valuable. Trash teams looking for talent? Valuable. Teams with a lot of good young players in their rotation? Not as valuable. Etc etc

Yeah, acting like late 1sts are worthless is dumb.  Especially the 2021 1st, which could have both college freshmen and high school seniors in the draft.

Late 1sts are essentially 5th round picks in comparison to the NFL draft.

Wrong.  We just saw the Nuggets use a FRP to dump over $21M in salary.

Cool. And then a team used that FRP to select a guy with a "5th round NFL value."

aka---a rotational player. You might get very lucky and get a starter that late, but it's extremely rare to land a high-end contributor that late. There are more stars drafted in the 5th round in the NFL than there are drafted in the 20's and 30's in the NBA draft.
