I prefer not to be the mod who has to hand out formal warnings. Perhaps the two of you shouldn't interact.

That's waaaaaaay too high for KPJ. That's worse than Anthony Bennett #1. If they are really high on KPJ they can take on salary for a late lotto pick and still easily get him.

well, 4 to the Hawks. Looks like the only way to move up or add a frp is with the JR contract unless something totally out of the box happens. I was holding out hope that somehow a Love plus whatever for 4 might be in the works.

I'm so mad at Griffin right now. I mean the Hawks didn't even give up that much.

I wonder how attached Ainge is to that Memphis pick. I'd trade back with Boston.

Is it though? I mean he remains just as skilled as anyone else available at that point besides older no ceiling ones slightly ahead of him on the learning curve .
It would be better to trade back if he's their guy , but he skipped a workout with WAS who is picking 9th suggesting he is going before 9. Don't be surprised if he is one of the best players from this class long term either if you ask me. nothing like Bennett who played in a weak conference and never told anyone about his health problems.

Everything I've read has KPJ having maturity concerns... I'd rather not have to deal with that. Though his shooting is definitely something to like.

Oh no Stillwater, misunderstanding. Not calling it a tragedy at all.

Please excuse me jbk1234.

The language I used was based on a mathematical theorem. What I was saying
Stillwater was that I think one of your draft scenarios is going to be what actually happens tonight.

I could have used Romeo and Juliet or the other Shakespeare plays, I am not a literary trust me, using Hamlet was completely random. I didn't realize that was a tragedy. I really don't know my Shakespeare. Sorry for the misunderstanding Stillwater. It was a math joke. And it missed.

Again, apologies all around.

How do you guys read that?

We think there’s a team that wants Garland more than we do, so please give us a call? In other words, Cavs dont want Garland? Or will draft him to trade him?

Looks like code or a bluff. Probably overthinking it.

I read it as thought the offers aren't good enough for the Cavs to pass on Garland. You can select the guy and wait for other teams to call when they're selecting.
