Mobley to Cleveland is a big win for the Cavs. Some have fostered doubt about he and Allen fitting well together, but they occupy different spaces on the floor. That sentiment is a bit confusing. Quality young team they're putting together when you add Mobley to the mix.

Cavs are all but locked in on Mobley. Said it would take godfather offer to get them out of that spot. The rest of the draft after that is a total crap shoot.

Davion Mitchell is the 1st pick that shook me. They going to super small ball with Hali, Fox and Mitch on the floor at the same time?

That's a high pick to take on a locker room guy.

I think Mitch is coming off the bench as a 6th man to start off in a three guard rotation.

I think we should start prepping ourselves around pick 35, OKC has 2 back to back picks. Could see us trying to get in there and then again around Torontos 46/47 or Charlotte 56/57

Hawks getting Jalen Johnson at #20 is a steal. Damn they are going to be a force for a long while.

Houston did really good shoring up that front court with that pick. He’s a great fit along side Wood.

Houston has done well. They've got two more picks to expand upon this draft. Pretty interesting.

Keon Johnson man...

They're breaking down his game by saying g he had a 48 inch vertical. What else? He's a freak athlete. What else? He set the combine record for vertical leap. What else? He shot less than 30% from three. Steal of the draft they said. Got damn.
