according to Macri, Knicks attempted to move up (for Kira, Maxey) using 1 of the Dallas picks....damn wish they could've pulled it off (~10:00 min mark)

I think Deni, Smith and Precious will have a better career than Obi, prove me wrong kid.

Can someone sell me on why Deni was touted so high? He seems slow in the head from his interviews and he shot 50% from the FT line. What makes him so special that people were looking to take him top 4?

Trae Young seemed slow in interviews too. From what I’ve seen he has the ..potential to be a point forward that can spread the floor. Doesnt mean he will succeed could end up being a Mario Hezonja type it’s impossible to know.

The two way playmaking wing is the most valuable player in the league today. If he fixes his jumper and FT shooting, Deni is the prototypical big wing who can create for others. They can slide down to guard bigs, but possess enough lateral quickness to stay with guards. It’s also why Okoro was ranked so high. He has a lot of potential, but with his shooting splits it’s fair to say some of that potential is as a bust.

Atlanta opened up even more cap space. They might have more than us right now

If what he says is true then I guess that means not everybodys enamored by that 21 draft

maybe they only offered the 2023 pick, tho that could also be valuable b/c HS player may become eligible

I would've included Knox too since he'll be likely relegated to the bench for the rest of his Knicks career. he's best fit at the 4 and now we have Obi

strange because the value to move up from #24 to #13 (we would have had to go from 23 to 13 to get Kira) in 2017 was just Trey Lyles, so you'd a 2021 or 2023

Lets be real wouldve had to have at least been 12, new orleans dont give a **** about 1st round picks at this point and honestly 10 is the only trade that wouldve made sense considering who dropped. Wouldve cost a pretty penny regardless

I'm not sure if we would go after the same types of players. I know we need a PG and they don't. Not sure who they might target.

idk, NO seems to be loading upon future 1sts. they trade #24 (where Denver stole Hampton) for a future 1st

looks like they're loading up for the next star hitting there trade market

It's common practice in Greece to start celebrating 4 hours before an event. Celebration involves alcohol. Draft was 8. So 4 hours of drinking gets you..."hey...Deni...over here...look at the screen...you're on live camera..."
