Not surprised. They probably see some similarities with this guy here.
Take it with a grain of salt but info apparently came from someone with connections with the Hawks FO.
Says that the Hawks draft board is 1. Edwards 2. Toppin 3. Ball 4. Haliburton.https://www.hawksquawk.net/topic/431653-ask-supes/page/133/?tab=comments#comment-1028094
Other tidbits here are that the Suns are targeting Cole Anthony and that the Spurs would go for Vassell if they couldn’t move up.
For the Knicks we were indeed interested in LaVine but the asking price is a first rounder and a role player which we refused. Nets seem to be the one that will be more aggressive for LaVine. Mike D’Antoni was also the name floated as the next Nets’ coach.
As expected teams are expecting us to be willing to trade up for LaMelo.
Thanks for sharing this. Cole does seem like he's in Phoenix's range so that's not too far fetched. Interesting to see the Nets have Mike D'Antoni as a candidate. Maybe if he gets fired they'll prob go all in on him. Makes sense for the Knicks not to give up a pick for Lavine cause we still need talent around him. Nets are probably offering Levert, picks and other guys for Lavine. They need a 3rd star and might have the assets to pull it off.
I wonder what the Knicks are giving up to get Lamelo. I'd imagine at the very least that Knox, Frank and DSJ are on the table.
D’Antoni will probably lead the Nets to 60+ wins in his first season although if he can’t win the title in Year 1 it will be harder in the succeeding seasons as teams figure him out.
Yes Nets should see what they can get in exchange for Dinwiddie, LeVert and Jarrett Allen especially as KD and Kyrie seem to prefer DJ starting. If they couldn’t get Bradley Beal they should try for Lavine.
I don’t think Knox, Frank or DSJ will be able to get us to trade up in the draft. At the very least they can be used as salary fillers to take back expensive contracts such as the one of Wiggins.
