Greens greatest skill is his Ja Morant athleticism and everything else about his game is very similar to Sexton with a touch more KPJ like being able to shoot at a high level in iso situations and make shots or blow by defenders and has some passing skills but like Sexton always being a first option would have to be just that on this roster to justify taking him.That wont solve your dilemna of stagnated offense at all...
I would rather they kept Sexland another season at this point with the ability to stagger Okoro in and out of the guard rotation and take Mobley Barnes or Kuminga at 3 whoever they like as the highest ceiling prospect even if they dont help much right away offensively or see if they can get an actual return for DG like 7th from GSW taking Suggs or Green at 3 and bpa sf/pf at 7
Mobley still seems like our guy this week, and yes, that would let them punt on a Sexland decision. His shooting has a long ways to go, but given he's 7ft and everything else he brings it's pretty easy to set that aside.
Ideal situation is Mobley is there for sure, but I am not buying Houston takes somebody besides Mobley at 2 except that there is some reason to believe they would value Green enough where they would be willing to trade down a spot to 3 to pick up a future from CLE so the Cavs can secure Mobley or something if Cavs are desperate
I didn't think the Rockets fit problems were as confusing as ours, but they do have John Wall, KPJ, Jae'Sean Tate, and Christian Wood still on the roster. KPJ declaring he's a point-guard will be interesting news to Wall, and they might like to clear off Eric Gordon but they have to find a taker.
Detroit isn't short on bigs and wings either so they will need to sort out who they believe in and who they don't to make space for Cade or whoever they end up taking.
