He's been out watching all these young guys building on something and playing aggressive. Hopefully he follows suit especially with no more Blake and Rose type vets to defer too.

Next James Harden (never forget)

Can’t wait to see him back on the court a lot of people counting him out but not me

Awesome news, thanks for the update Motown! This is earlier then expected(at least for me)and it will be a good amount of games to see what the team has in the #7 pick. Here's to hoping he kills it, and while recovering only dribbled with his right hand everywhere he went.

Someone might have to Pistol pete his ass if he doesn't get the messege.

Hopefully Hayes is near the level of Ball and I can dream about my Hayes Diallo Bey Grant Mobley starting lineup going to the draft...

Said this is another thread: either he plays better or he helps with the tank.

Both are good.

No, let him in easy for a game or so

I think the injury was a setback for his progression but it might have helped to get him more relaxed with a fresh start.

Hope he plays well but I’m not letting him get in the way of drafting Cade or Suggs.

Both those guys could actually play the 2 as well. Suggs plays off ball quite a bit and Cade you can pretty much put 1-3.

Cade is a guy you can play how you want to. Kid is dynamic. 1-3? Complete agreement there.

Green would go best with Hayes and Bey!

Just hope he comes in and plays without any pressure on him and stays healthy. I don't need to see "flashes' or anything I just need to see he is capable of playing at this level. Then we'll have some hope for a big offseason of putting work in and a much improved 2nd year.

We’re still in BPA mode, I think.

Seriously. "fit" shouldn't matter one bit when you're drafting this high and have no elite talent. Whoever the best player is, draft him and find a fit.

Anyway, glad to hear that Killian is back. I would love nothing more than for him to shut up the people who sadly gave up on him after 7 freaking pro games.
It'll take some time to get his game legs back fully but it would be nice to see him turn things around going into next season. I have a feeling that he'll do better now that the carcass of Blake Griffin isn't weighing everybody down anymore and with more youthful energy in the roster as a whole.

I hope Casey treats him like he normally would this time around, having him earn his minutes and work his way into the rotation. Without fitting things around Rose and Griffin he'll get some needed development time with lower expectations.

I'm back to ground zero expectations for him. A non-contact injury like this made me shelve any high hopes I have for him and wonder if he'll even make it the league.

Glad to see folks are still hopeful for him especially because I'm not. I will say this will be a much better learning situation than the beginning of the year.
