The Hornets are still searching for long-term answers on the wing, where they've rotated a number of players in and out of the starting lineup all season, partially due to injuries.

Bridges is an easy player to slot on almost any NBA roster, thanks to his multi-positional defensive versatility, 3-point shooting and role-player potential.

The Knicks have a glaring hole at small forward, which could possibly be filled by a big scoring wing such as Musa, who has been putting up points at a historic rate, relative to his age, this season in the Adriatic League.

Although his defense is a question mark, his ability to create his own shot, find the open man and make jumpers from all over the floor gives him a clear-cut niche as a bucket-getter at the NBA level.



we really dont need a turnstile wing defender.... :-?

from what i've seen he's just a chucker with suspect defense. i even saw people comparing him to timmy on one of his videos... we don't need that

If the Bulls land #1 it'll be hard to see them passing on Doncic's passing ability. Especially with him setting up Markannen easily.

I still like Trier with a later pick for us as well.

yeah you're right. i didn't know what i was talking about :lol:
this what they said about him
The Bucks have solid depth and could potentially afford to swing for the fences and select one of the most raw prospects in the class (but also one with significant upside).

Simons is weighing skipping college altogether and would benefit from the lack of backcourt depth from which this draft suffers. He's a tremendous athlete who shows potential as a shot-creator and off-the-dribble jump-shooter, but he could likely benefit from gaining experience at the NCAA level due to his frail physique.

Yeah I know. I just think Hami got star potential unlike the rest of these dudes. Like if I had to grade the rest of these dudes y'all talking about outside of Bridges none of them get lotto grades from me. At least DeHami DeAllo has the potential to be a beast if developed right and a nice work ethic (I mean he had a 1:2 assist:turnover ratio at a tournament 2 years ago now he has like a 1.5:1 ratio).

No way we rocking wit Musa. Cat look like the hunchback from 300 when he play :lol:

EDITS:

And no way we take Musa wit Mikal still on the board. Givony been getting worse and worse lately. Does he not see that we lack defenders. No way we take another turnstile like Musa with Mikal on the table as the perfect fit.

And Aaron Holiday at #31 when Bonga is there? Man Givony either went wit the corporate agenda at ESPN to troll NYK or he losing it, looking like Larry Holmes flabby and sick.

Love the way he backtracking on Knox too after the negativity.

At this point no one knows what the Knicks will be doing cuz our position is so in flux. But one thing we can assume is that we not taking any other bad defenders unless it is Doncic.

You been keeping an eye on Justin Simon? Dude is 6'5", can play PG/SG/SF, is very athletic, has a 7'0" wingspan, gets steals and blocks, one of the best wing rebounders in the country, plays rabid defense and is the ultimate glue guy.
