Kings could easily take Noah contract, they will have to pay some FA's big money this summer to get to the salary floor. :rofl:

Theirs no way fox should be ahead of frank.

Franks upside is way to high to pass on for fox.

After TOP 5, Ball, Fultz, JJ, DSJ, Tatum.

Ntikilina is next on my list, tbh I might take Frank over Tatum and maybe DSJ, but it's a hard call, got to see how he will do in the workouts.

People are really sleeping on Frank.

Let's just deal Melo and Lee for mid to late firsts

Eat Deng, Mozgovs deals and acquire a player like Russell (once LAL takes Ball)

Draft Tatum at 5, Kennard w a big first, Mason in the second

Who needs cap space? We'll only need it to resign our draft picks

Russell
Kennard
Tatum
KP

That's the correct order.
Greenie: Disagree. I think Tatum is going to be better than KP. I don't know about DSjr.

This is my same order, but if Frank stands out in workouts i may shoot him up to #3. I dont get a chance to see him play so i don't know much about him minus what youtube has to offer

Is Fultz not more of a SG or combo guard than he is a PG? I'm asking because I've only seen highlights and part of the game vs. UCLA. Seems like a scoring guard to me.

He's your modern scoring guard in the mold of Dame Lillard.

His team sucks he has to score.

But at the same time no he's not as pure of a PG as Ball but he's not a sefish PG either.

Bigger than Dame, though? You think he'll be better than Dame? Is he a faster, more athletic version of D'Angelo Russ?

Monk is just as much a point guard as B. Beal.

Fair comparison he is a faster, more athletic and more crafty finisher version of D'angelo. Consistency on the defensive end is key with him and that will be the deciding factor whether he lives up to the hype or not. He has the length and size to do it

If Russell didn't just poke his head out of the ground and score 40 would we be talking about him?
