Vote Towns

Has more upside than Oladipo. Someone brought up the idea of would Warriors trade Durant for Towns last thread, and my reaction was that they would have to strongly consider it for the long term implications. Likewise for Ayton, trading him for Towns seems like a better deal for Phx to me. I think Jokic is better than Towns but I suspect Jokic not taking off as a volume scorer this year GMs (mistakingly) would still value Towns more.

Nominate Kawhi

Vote Towns
Nominate Mitchell

Mitchell has the biggest upside has a player/contract of those remaining for me. Towns has the highest upside and also one of the worst floors for me as well, plus 6 years of security.

I think I'm higher on Durant than most, but I think we're inching closer and closer to having to just go with him.

Copy-paste from last time. Also can't understand the Simmons thing and I thought I was stanning him at one point last year.

Vote: JJJ
Nominate: Mitchell

I'm probably biased, and JJJ has had a couple rookie games, but he has been such a huge force for the Grizzlies in quite a few games that I can't help but think he's a guy who can be a key player on a championship team. He also is like the 2nd youngest player in the NBA right now with years still left on his rookie deal.

Jokic
Mitchell

Jokic is a more impactful player than anyone on the list not named Durant.

Vote: Tatum
Nominate: Mitchell

Both are gonna give you 3 seasons left on their rookie deal, and both have shown elite upside on both ends. I gave Tatum the edge because he’s going to be unguardable in 2 years because of his height/handle while the extra size/length have also been huge defensively. Youngsters with their combination of upside/floor and a ton of time left on their rookie deal are untouchable for a reason. I would trade either for several guys mentioned already.

So Paul George is the reason Carmelo Anthony struggled on defense all these years...
