I’d hate for Vuc or Bamba to keep us from grabbing BPA if that player was a big. I really don’t think twin towers would be that bad.

Fernando, Grant Williams, Bitadze , Clarke, and Kabebgele are all very interesting prospects that I could see as “steals” down the line. If there were more opportunity for them, I would be all for it. If we made a draft day trade and knew Vuc wasn’t coming back I wouldn’t be upset at a majority of these guys.


Yeah, minus Vuc I am fine with going that. With Vuc, it seems improbable they'll get much burn. But I am an advocate of BPA in most drafts unless we were in a position like 2009 or something and had specific needs for young guys that can contribute (like Courtney Lee).

Absolutely. If Orlando didn’t have glaring needs, and a stacked big man rotation, bpa would be a good way to go at 16.

Both of those guys fit an obvious need. We should be in good shape for the draft.

I still believe vuc is gone, so in my mind Bamba is our starting center next year

With that said, that wouldnt prevent me from taking a center if i felt that the best available player was a center

We arent in the position to fill positional needs. We need to find say shooters, but that could be any position. If we are going of NEEDS, our BIGGEST need is a true franchise centerpiece Superstar

If 16 comes around and Bol Bol, bruno, or Hayes are available and WeHam decides those guys have All-NBA potential, take them and worry about bamba\position battles later. Right now we need to find a player to build around. Gordon isnt that guy, Isaac isnt, so far bamba hasnt shown much and Fultz is still a major unknown (although the guy i feel has the best chance at being our superstar), and lets be honest, the odds of us finding a franchise centerpiece at 16 is pretty low, and honestly i wish we could trade this pick along with other assets for a centerpiece.

So really, just take the best player available

Watch the highlights from Nicolas Claxton. He looks like a bigger Siakam. He's very fluid with Isaac type defense.

I mean, they’ve been taking their perceived “bpa” in the past two drafts. They’ve failed to address the lack of shooting and finding a starting quality point guard in both drafts. IF they believe Vuc is gone, then that’s another situation entirely. However, if they don’t plan on trading to address either of those needs, then they need to utilize the draft more effectively...

The one thing that i heard that made me feel better was about how much his defense improved over the season. If that continues and he is a neutral or positive on that end.... he looks even that much better!
its about team defense. So it’s great that his individual defense has improved but it’s inconsequential imo.

Have you seen Keldon Johnson tapes? I really think he would be good consolation. Can defend 2 maybe 3 positions and looks like he has a solid stroke. Just as good of ball handler if not better then Herro. He’s right after NAW and Herro for me.

I need a Herro
I'm holding out for a Herro 'til the end of the night
He's gotta be strong
And he's gotta be fast
And he's gotta be fresh from the fight
I need a Herro
I'm holding out for a Herro 'til the morning light
He's gotta be sure
And it's gotta be soon
And he's gotta be larger than life!
Larger than life

Bol Bol might have jumped back into the lottery after his performance today.

Yeah his workout will help us get a better player because I can't see Atlanta or Charlotte passing on him.

I forgot about him. I agree I like him too. Id be good with any of those 3. I wouldnt be surprised if all these mocks are wrong and all 3 of them go earlier then projected. One of them should be there for us hopefully

I don't think he showed anything that he hadn't already shown in HS/his limited pro career. Bol Bols skillset on the offensive end isnt what's going to keep him from the lottery. It's the immense injury concern that comes along with him, his questionable defensive intangibles, and his questionable work ethic.

A team may take a shot on him in the lottery but I highly doubt that his pre-draft workout really moved the needle for a GM much.

I hear Claxton has canceled all workouts. Apparently he has a draft promise.
