I like what I've read about Devin Vassell. I'm not in the we need to trade oubre camp but if Vassell is there at 10 he'd be a temping pick and then you probably need to trade a wing.

I'd be perfectly happy to add Vassell. I have him ahead of Edwards. He'd back up Devin, and I'd be curious to see how the Devins would play together. But I wouldn't be prompted to move Kelly just because we drafted DV. Kelly doesn't play any backup 2, but rather 3/4. We badly need a backup 2.
It would be awesome to be able to have 2 ELITE lockdown perimeter defenders in both of Vassell and Bridges. Then you could just let Booker, Oubre, and Ayton go crazy on offense. Then also, IF Vassell takes big steps forward offensively, Then he could potentially replace Oubre( IF he gets a big offer in 2021 that we can't afford to match or beat)!!! So then assuming that in this scenario, We are keeping Oubre ( for now) then we'd play Vassell at the backup 2, Cam Johnson at the 3, Bridges at the starting 3 and Oubre at the starting 4. We'd still need a backup guard AND a backup 4 to replace Saric for now. So with respect to that.................
I would still absolutely look to trade some package of Saric **( resigned at around 6 - 8 million, and traded), Diallo, and Okobo to one of:
Saric( resigned at 8 million and traded)/ Diallo/ Okobo and a future conditional 2nd for Delon Wright
and the 31st pick.
31- Draft Jalen Smith 1st***( IF he falls that far) or Killian Tillie ( 2nd) or Paul Reed ( 3rd) to be the Backup 4/5 ( Sarics' replacement).
For Mike Scott/ and the 34th and 36th pick.
34- Draft Jalen Smith (1st)** IF he falls that far, or or Killian Tillie (2nd) or Paul Reed ( 3rd) to be Sarics' replacement).
36- Grant Riller 1st (*** IF he falls that far) or Malachi Flynn ( 2nd) , Or Cassius Winston ( 3rd).
******Maybe take a chance on an elite Toronto phenom in Karim Man'e
He's 6'5 with a 7'0+ wingspan, And is super athletic and has elite potential.
For Miye Oni and the 24th pick.
24- Draft Grant Riller ( 1) or Tre Jones ( 2) or Tyrell Terry ( 3).
***Then buy a 2nd ( 34) from Philly, And draft one of Paul Reed/ Killian Tillie/ or Reggie Perry.
But in all honesty, My gut tells me that Jones is planning a trade back scenario to take Saddiq Bey, And potentially get another asset too. Most likely something like the 10th pick/Saric (* sign n' trade) and Diallo to:
- Dallas for Delon Wright / 18th pick and the 31st pick.
18- Draft Saddiq Bey.
31- Immanuel Quickly or Elijah Hughes.
- Boston, The 10th pick/ Saric ( resigned at 6-8 million, and traded)/Diallo/ Okobo for Marcus Smart and the 17th pick/ 30th pick.
17- Saddiq Bey.
30- Immanuel Quickly or Cassius Stanley or Elijah Hughes.
Although, I still really like the idea of doing the Oubre trade that a Golden State Warriors fan proposed the most! Wherein we trade Oubre to Golden State for their 17.2 million trade exception AND their top 4 pick.
It would suck to lose Oubre, But we may lose him in 2021 free agency anyways. And this trade would give us cap space + premium draft assets to use towards roster improvements or in a trade. For instance:
Top 4 pick- Draft Toppin. ( Amare 2.0
) for us?
Then trade the 10th pick And Saric ( resigned at around 6-8 million)/Diallo/ future conditional 2nd to Boston for Marcus Smart and the 26th/ 30th picks.
26- Draft Tyler Bey (Shawn Marion 2.0/ Elite versatile defender
) And Oubres' statistical production replacement.
30- Draft Immanuel Quickly or Skylar Mays. ( Microwave volume scorers off the bench with Quickly being similar to ( Lou Williams) and Skylar Mays being similar to ( Jamal Murray). So we'd be better with either honestly.
So we'd walk out of draft night with Toppin/ Tyler Bey/ Immanuel Quickly AND Marcus Smart
. Also we'd have the 17 million ( Iguodala trade exception) to use towards free agency. So now we can pursue one of Gallinari
/ or even Favors. On a big 1 year deal. Then resign Baynes and Kaminsky. And roll into next season, And into the playoffs!!!
- Rubio/ Smart/ Jerome.
- Booker/ * Free agent /Quickly. *( Bryn Forbes or Alec Burks)??
- Bridges/ Cam/Tyler Bey.
- Gallinari/ Toppin/ Kaminsky.
- Ayton/ Baynes/ * Noel or *Len. *( Free agency).
