If they were super-confident Toppin or Haliburton was the right guy / fit, they could try to move way up but it seems unlikely or quite costly.
If you didn't like the picks available at 25, turning it into 2-3 seconds, now and perhaps later, might be ok.
Poku would be the biggest gamble of these.
I hate Jalen Smith as a fit for our team. Think he’s a 4/5 tweener who doesn’t do a whole lot on offense at the next level.
Nesmith is okay, but I’m not in love with him either.
Would love to trade up to get Vassell but at what cost?
I’d like to take a shot on Oturu who I think is being underrated. He’s a good passer for a big man. I think his floor is a 6th man. Has stretch 5 potential.
If Lewis Jr. slips, I full expect Presti to bite. Same thing with Tyler Bey. Presti is going to see some Roberson in Bey and his eyes will light up.
Patrick Williams is another guy I wouldn’t mind rolling the dice on at 25 is he’s available.
