Basically, want Dallas to stay out of the lottery so their 2023 pick comes to the Knick in the extra deep College/HS draft, correct?
I hope I'm not wrong, don't wanna look it up again, but I think:
Their 2021 pick is unprotected and could very well end up in the lottery. Dallas isn't a very good team actually and the West is so tough, they might finish 10th that year.
In 2023 the pick is top 10 protected and it doesn't get much better going forward. That's a heavily protected pick that iirc might very well convey as a second rounder in 2025 after all.
We really shouldn't touch the 2021 pick, not even for Hield. That said, going after Buddy is a must and I'm also comfortable with Harrison Barnes given our ability to swallow bad deals. He has become a very, very consistent shooter and defender over the years. He's not bad at all if you look into it - most of that is narrative and a bad environment. Kings haven't been ready so far.
Edit: imo Barnes > A. Gordon > Randle
I doubt Dallas is a lotto team in 2023. Which, other than weird lotto odds if their record is LATE lotto and they move up (whatever the last lotto pick is 14? 16?) to top 10, it's GOOD news they'll be good, since the pick will convey and it's a supposed to be a very deep draft.
Yep, definitely. But in a deal for Hield you offer the 2023 Dallas puck, the one coming from LAC, plus Randle, Payton, DSJ. That's it basically.
Don't touch the 2021 pick or any of our own.
