You didn't watch him in the tournament? He was a stud. Has limitations, but if you need a high efficiency hustle guy, then he's your man.

Just a note on Josh Jackson. During his last 17 games he shot 25-53 from three point land.

So glad to see Riley scouting Bell, he should recognze that the man has Heat DNA written all over him. Hope we bring him for a personnal workout at the AAA next week.

There are some guys that I'm in love with and have me yearning for a second pick. Bell and Thornwell are two of them. The latter had a 40 point, 20 rebound game, as a shooting guard...!

I think this is the draft where a few 2nd rounders will be better than a lot of mid to late first rounders. I would reach to secure bell at 14 and try to get another pick for a 3 & D guy like Thornwell, Ojeleye or Blossomgame.

Would like to see where the lottery falls before I could commit to taking Bell that early. I'd feel pretty good about trading down from 14 and still being able to get him.

He's a very nice athlete for his position. Very quick on his feet. Allows him to shadow guys real well. He might have to bulk up a little for the NBA though. Only 225 I think.

Go all in. Trade 14 for 25 and 33, trade TJ to Philly for 36 or Brooklyn for 27.

Land Ojeleye, Bell, Thornwell. 3 tough SOB's. Bring back weber.

Dragic/Richardson/Weber
Waiters/Ellington/Thornwell
McGruder/Winslow/Ojeleye
Hayward/JJ/McBob
Hassan/Bell/Haslem

I know that's unlikely, but really think we could benefit from moving down and picking up 2 tough players (unless Lauri falls)

Ah Draft time. When little boys become Jordan in the eyes of fans for a few weeks before they bust in the NBA.
No more talk about Family Riles. Just do you job! :noway:

Only Fans are Heatlifers. I am a Heatlifer :banghead:

Celtics hunting whales and 6ers cashing in.
Celtics next move may shape the rest of the draft even more, as rumours have them cashing out for a whale.
6ers now have 4 of their future core 5 set, and just need to find the 3&D SG that will complement Fultz/Simmons/Saric/Embiid.

Funny Embiid, Simmons and Fultz will all be basically rookies. Embiid has only played 31 games. Talent wise that is a great trio. They gonna have to mature thou, fans gonna need to be patient till they about 24 25 years old.

Was lurking Draft board, this kid from the potential sleepers thread looks like he would be great for Sioux Falls. 20 yo but no reputable experience and also in the draft lmao

Looks like he moves well, 6'10 with 7'3 wingspan

More like Greg Oden unless he can get back to 100% & if so he is as quick as Bosh & Lamar Odom.

Watch some High School games of him & you will see.


High school is rarely a good indicator of NBA athleticism.



Justise Winslow was an explosive shooting guard in HS. I'm not sure I've ever seen him elevate this way in a HEAT uniform. The closest I remember was his debut dunk vs. Charlotte.

Damyean Dotson (Houston) is a 6'5 shooter, not much else (it seems). Ranked #59 (#9 among NCAA seniors) on DX, meaning he's likely going undrafted.



Davon Reed (Miami) is another shooter that could be a 3&D guy. Late-second round talent, according to DX.
