I’ve seen recent pictures of him and it’s clear he’s added weight to his frame too. Hopefully he is back to start the year. I’m extremely high on him.

I also think Tyrese Proctor is being slept on heavily right now. If six months from now he’s considered the top Duke draft prospect, I wouldn’t be totally surprised.

I think Mark Mitchell is being slept on as a prospect as well, haven't seen very much hype around him. Interested to see how Duke's rotation ends up shaking out. I think Whitehead can be a good prospect, potentially a Jaylen Brown clone, but we'll see.

What's the draft like after Wemby and Scoot? Deep class or nah?

it's very deep. maybe the only couple things lacking are a real pg after scoot (unless you count amen thompson) and proven 3 and d wings. but there are rangy athletes everywhere

Its going to be a very deep draft.  Possibly the deepest draft since 2012 IMO.  

Beautiful time to have a Lakers pick then

I started a franchise with the Pacers.  Obviously wanted to tank, so I made some moves.

-Did the Hield-Turner for Westbrook and 2027 1st trade.  Sent an additional 2nd rounder for Max Christie.  Immediately waived Westbrook
-Tanked hard.  Had the worst record and got the 1st pick.  Also had picks #25, #28, and a 2nd
-Picked Victor #1, then...
-Packaged those picks for #16.  For some unknown reason, OKC offered me Cason Wallace (who they picked 7th overall) for #16 and Max Christie.  I noticed the Spurs also offered Keldon Johnson straight up for #16...
-Traded Chris Duarte, Keinrich Williams, and 2 2nds for Keldon Johnson
-Noticed a 75 overall 19-year-old named Jordan Walsh was available in free agency with 0 offers.  Signed him

So after 1 year, my core is:

PG: Tyrese Haliburton (87)
SG: Brandon Mathurin (78)
SF: Keldon Johnson (85)
PF: Jalen Smith (77)
C Victor Wembanyama (85)

6th: Cason Wallace (77)
7th: Jordan Walsh (75)
Some random vets to fill out the rest.

I hope my owner will let me pay all of them since no one is older than 23.

My roommate was playing 2k and doing the era thing. Started as the Timberwolves. Blew the entire team up minus Garnett to collect picks. Ends up with picks 1, 5, 9 and 28. Packages 5/9/28 for 2. Drafts LeBron/Wade and Ridnour in the 2nd round. One year rebuild into dynasty. 2k can be real dumb.
