As a fan not privy to what actual internal scouts think of the players, I think he does everything to trade back or trade for a legit player at the 3 or 4.

I'm basing that off of what we have to go off, that there is no consensus #1 and that most players are comparable in the lottery.

If he trades out, I think he still picks at 17 or tries to move up a few slots with 17 and #33.

If he trades back, I think he tries to trade out with #17, and takes a flier at 33.

I like this split approach shrink!

I voted trade out, as I feel like bringing in a proven performer will be Rosas' goal here. If he stays in the draft I can see him (to my disappointment) taking Lamelo. Although I feel that pick would be motivated substantially by value retention; Lamelo seems to be fancied by a few teams around the league.

I will find it hilarious when the actual draft comes and none of Ball, Wiseman or Edwards go top 3 and the media types didn't have a clue about who the teams really want.

It’s unlikely but a draft that started:

1) Avdija
2) Okongwu
3) Hayes

It wouldn’t totally stun me. My ranking is still Wiseman and then Okongwu with Avdija charging up hard.

You've got the same ranking as me. I think I'd go Avdija in just about a coin flip over Okongwu.

drafts Wiseman and either

1) trades down 1-5 slots acquiring another asset
2) trades for an established player
3) keeps him

It's my belief that if we want Deni we can't trade back past 4 for certain and might not even get him at 2.
