You don't draft players to fit his playing style. If the BPA on the board is a PG you take him.


This is fine. But I see BPA as the two SGs over Suggs. Green looks to be an offensive star and Cunningham looks to be a well-rounded two -way player. I value either of those over Suggs upside, which for me is "The next CJ McCollum".

If Orlando is drafting 4th and the choice is between Suggs, Kuminga, Barnes and Moody; sure - Orlando must draft Suggs.

I’m not sure how anyone can watch Jalen Suggs and come up with CJ McCollum as their NBA Player Comp.

for next season, I'd try to sign Olynk as our backup PF and emergency 3rd C. His spacing & rebounding would do well for Mo and the rest of our team.

Washington let Jerome Robinson go...obviously, didn't show anything but he's a young, good-sized combo guard with a projection as a good 3pt shooter...should we invite him to our tryouts?

I like that idea, is there a younger version of him?

Same her. Thats a waaay off-base. If we are talking about POR players, Brandon Roy maybe is nearer in comparison than CJ

What about waiving Bacon and using that roster spot to bring in a recent lotto pick in Jerome Robinson?

I know he hasnt really shown anything, but the guy was the 13th pick in 2018, might be worth the audition, no? We have nothing to lose at this point

I actually think Dame
Both are fiery, have good size for the position, have range on their shot, tremendous leaders....I dont know, could be something there

I watched a few Wizards games and Robinson is really bad. Bacon is way better than him.

He'd definitely help the tank. Still can't believe Philly traded the home town kid, Mikal Bridges for him.

Lol cmon guys, are we looking at another reclamation project for Birch's spot?

I think the FO is just getting ready for the moves when we use our 2nd FRP or the SRP to draft a big ( hopefully its the Garza, Hurt and other big shooters )

Dame doesnt have the build/physicality of a Suggs/Roy though. Same as that Both dont have the range of Dame.

Isnt Dame 6'2-6'3 while roy/suggs are near 6'5?

Suggs gives me star vibes more than most other prospects this year.
But my comparison for him agrees with opinion of Mike Schmitz, Jrue Holiday just without elite defense.

But he kind a reminds me on Derron Williams as well,but Derron was better passer but less athletic.

If you can get Derron Wiliams / Jrue Holiday hybrid, that's pretty good returning value.

"Worst" case is Eric Bledsoe, where he simply isn't good enough shooter to be above average PG.

His jumpshot shows some red flags.

Cade is fundamentally sounded but he really isn't elite at anything. Mediocre athelete who people compare with Doncic, but has nowhere near advanced vision nor passing chops. He could easly end up being lower tear quality player of Gordan Hayward
Prediction day after Vuc, Gordon, Evan departure - most fans who are celebrating birth of new rebuild will be crying how rebuild is painful before 2022-23 season ends.
