I would LOVE Dort. But, we’d have to be trading back to 34 or 36 for him, if not giving up the 13 completely.

Maybe that is where pick 31 comes into play.

Trade for Dort and then package 31 and 34 (or 36) to trade back up into the 1st? Maybe?

A bit surprised to see Giddey go at 6, but man, what a talent and vision. OKC is gonna have an interesting lineup with SGA, Giddey, and Poku.

31 is a great spot. Talent still there with contract flexibility. I'd like to think we're sticking at 13 now that we can get two talented players.

Some team has to pick Kispert before our turn. PLEASE! I really don't want him.

Moody and Bouknight left with 2 picks in front of us. Fingers crossed.

OK. We just cheated death. (Mine, that is)

I have heard people say his workout for the Pacers went really well.

Very solid pick. Question is, do we keep Duarte? Or did we draft him for some teams else? Duarte at 13 has been reported many times these past few days.

Between trading for Plumlee and now the Kai Jones pick, I think we can take Charlotte off the list of teams possibly interested in Myles.

Wow. Quentin Grimes just went 25 to the Knicks. There was a time we hoped for him in the late 2nd!

Yeah, that's kind of what I was wondering about - pending their pick. It was almost the perfect spot for K. Jones to be selected.
