Pick 24 for him would be fantastic! Sign me up.

Draft Jaden McDaniels or Jay Scrubb there.

god i hope a trade is coming

I dont even mind evan as a player.... when he plays in the system and doesnt try to hero-ball it out there, unfortuantely thats rarely the case. He seems to think that he has to be lebron out here for us to win and tries to take over games....but hes not that guy

Sign me up. I’d help Evan pack his bags.

Sadly for you guys, the reaction from the Bucks board was hardly as favourable as here to this idea. Still they need to do something desperately. Someone will take advantage.
When will we just change the name of 25 of the 30 teams to the Washington Generals?

Please advise….

I was scouting the mocks last night.

The Bucks jumped out to me as they want to make upgrades and were deeply involved in talks to move their pick for Dennis Schoeder but were outbid by the Lakers.

Surely the pressure for them to find a deal only intensified once they not only missed but missed to the defending champs.

Pick #24 could easily turn into any one of:
Josh Green
Jahmi’us Ramsey
RJ Hampton
Theo Maledon
Desmond Bane
Tyrell Terry

Not surprising, doubt he would be guaranteed that on the free market, here's hoping he can be part of a trade to move the needle for us

No one here minds the talent Evan brings. For his price tag he brings all the talent you could ask for.

The problem is he doesn’t understand his role. It’s hard to blame him I suppose given we lack a true star. I guess someone has to go out and try to be the hero? But no, that clearly is not the case. True, we will get clobbered by good-to-great teams when they are playing their A-game but if we play within ourselves and gel as a team in a cohesive system we have a roster to easily be above .500 and lock in the 7th seed.

Or we can let Evan shoot early, kill the ball movement and ruin any chemistry on offense. Even if a decent percentage of HIS shots go in it kills the performance of the young teammates and we get a loss which often times should have been a win.

... but some “fans” here will simply point to how wonderful his shooting was so “hey, imagine where we would be without him!” *smh*

If they take a Guard at 15, then that list could be a lot different.

True. However ...

I’m still holding out hope for an AG + 15 trade for a lead guard to pair with Fultz.

Also, I see many of the names on that list as DJ replacements for the bench.

I wouldn’t mind going into next season with an entirely new backcourt built around Fultz and moving Chuma into the starting lineup while Isaac is out.

I like Precious but i think the Celtics take him.

Looks like all those glute exercises that Evan post on Instagram all the time have paid off.

He is too good of a trade chip as exp. contract to be resigned before 2021 is over.

Also, after Bogdan Bogdanovic official trade, we can scrap Buddy Hield from trade options for teams. Kings won't move both 2-guards in same year, especially because they have nobody else to play there

I hope you're right.

I think Philly (pick #21) and Denver (pick #22) might be feeling the pressure that other teams are making and pawn their 1st rounder for a veteran like Fournier.

Would love that kind of deal for us.

It's Bane,Green, Flynn draft range i assume?

Issue is matching salaries as both teams are over cap.

It's a given 76ers can't attach anything but J. Rich and Mike Scott.

Just like Nuggets really can't offer anything but Garry Harris.

Nuggets are in tough position, regardless of what some of fans think how amazing they are. They have 5 players under nba contracts and intention to resign Grant. So Jokic, Grant, Murray, Harris ,Porter and Barton.
That's it. Nobody else has nba contract. Bol has two way contract, you can add him, but it's still comple lack of bodies, depth, something that was their biggest strenght :dontknow:
