Trade 9 for 12&13 and land both Mikal and WC

If we could get both Mikal and Carter, I'd give up my first born

Mikal

Maybe the tanking could end

Big risk. Big reward.
I would only do it if he was thoroughly examined by our doctors, of course.

I can see Clev taking him because they're in a position to.take risk unlike us where we really need to strike it rich.


In 2016 he dominated the U18 FIBA championships with Markelle Fultz. He was the only forward invited to Steph Curry’s basketball camp, and that camp is reserved for the best guard prospects in the country. At that camp, he won the annual 1v1 tournament and he famously played against Dennis Smith Jr.

At the Nike Hoop Summit? He dominated that week. McDonald’s All American game? Once again dominated that week.

In MPJr you’re talking about the closest thing to Kevin Durant out there. He’s a three level scorer and a plus rebounder, and I have no doubt in my mind he would have been the #1 pick in the draft if he didn’t have the back injury. He’s a great athlete with a smooth jumper and the ability to create off the ball.

I will take either of the 2 Bridges and be happy. Another logjam position going into camp is NOT what I want to see. Especially one we at a position we used on a lottery pick last year.

Listen to this man.

I'd be sooo happy but there's NOOOOO WAYYYYY Mikal falls past Philly. They'd probably be celebrating in their war room like the Mavs last year.

Have you actually ever seen him play? Do you know how bad HS rankings are and how foolish HS stats can be? They're not determinative of who will be good pros, only who are the top HS players. That's it. He's a volume jump shooting who doesn't defend and offers little on offense.

I think a reasonable trade would be Lee to the TWolves for #20 and Aldrich. Maybe then they can try to move up from #20


I said since the deadline that Lee to MIN makes a lot of sense b/c they don’t have any extra wings.

Instead of the 1st I took back Patton

Either works for me.

The idea of keeping him while we are awful is pretty disappointing. I like him as a player too

Lee would be a great bench piece for a playoff team. He defends shoots, plays within the offense. Perry/Mills should sell playoff teams like the Wolves on that (now that Jamal isn't coming back)

Id prefer to hold onto Lee and move THjr

he should have value for his talent and youth despite that contract

It would really help us out if we didn't have to hide him on defense.
he's too small to play SF and too bad a defender to play SG

if we draft Young we can't play him with Hardaway

they might put up 40 a night but they will give up 50
