We tend to give a little leeway. I believe Insfo should be given a little slack. We have never skipped anyone without a "Can we skip..."

It would have been funny if he forfeited his first pick then used his second.

Sly has had nearly 24 hours. Should we skip him?

I was hoping to sneakily grab Wall off waivers.

I was tempted too, but decided to go with youth/potential instead. Good pick WB!

Yeah, I would've picked Wall.

Lemansky - Grade A. Chet Holmgren (1) and Dyson Daniels (15) Holmgren could be the best player in this draft but he seems very fragile and will not provide any value this season. Dyson Daniels provides good value in the second round.


Grape Ape - Grade B+. Jabari Smith (2) Interesting pick with Banchero still on the board. But had Orlando picked Smith #1 in the NBA draft no one would have questioned the pick so why question this pick here?

Stick - Grade A-. Paolo Banchero (3) and Gary Payton II (19) Banchero was the obvious pick here. Getting the #1 pick at #3 should be a win. Gary Payton Jr. looked good last season but his role in Portland in unclear.


Writer's Block - Grade A-. Jaden Ivey (4) and John Wall (26) there are those who feel Ivey could be the best player in the draft. Wall could be really good sneaky good pick in the second round for a team contending. It seems not only did WB inherit East's team but also his golden lap.

Sabonis - Grade A-. Keegan Murray (5) and Kelly Olynyk (16) I seems to be giving out too many high grades but Murry is another sold pick. Sacromento was questioned for make this pick but Murry seems to be balling out. Olynyk is a nice role player.

JFrost - Grade A-. Bennedict Mathurin (6) Kevin Love (21) Mathurin is another player looking like a solid pick. Love is old but has a good fantasy game.


dynamoose - Grade B+. Tari Eason (7) and Patrick Baldwin Jr (17) Two very solid players who should, in time, be valuable players. But in the near term both, especially Baldwin, may have a hard time finding minute.

Skai - Grade B. Shaedon Sharpe (8) Sharpe is a very talented player but Portland moves their young players along slowly.

TyCobb - Grade F. Forfeit (x2) Apparently Otto Porter and Corey Kispert were just too good to drop. There were still some valuable players still on the board. This move is questionable at best.

sly - Grade C+ Joshua Primo (10) and Dorian Finney-Smith (24) Primo should see a increased minutes. How high his possible upside is questionable. Finney-Smith is youngish but we know what he is.

Ham n Cheese - Grade B+ Walker Kessler (11) and Moses Moody (27) Ainge wanted Kessler in Utah and he should get minutes soon on the tanking Jazz team. Moody is talented but will have to wait for his moment in Golden State.

insfo - Grade A-. Jalen Duren (12) and Jeremy Sochan (25) Duren is a monster on the boards. Sochan the #9 pick in the NBA draft is good value at #25.

AlciG - Grade A. Jalen Williams (13) and Santi Aldama (23) Jalen Williams has a solid all round game perfect for fantasy and OKC has no reason not to play him. There was some controversy surrounding this and the prior pick but I think Alcig may have come out ahead. Sophomore Santi Aldama looks to be next up (at least as the back up in Memphis

The Man - Grade A+ Nikola Jovic (14) Jovic, as a passing big man, has one of the most fantasy friendly games in the draft. If he can get time in Miami, and his teammates seem impressed, he should have a lot of impact.

Are there picks involved in this current pending trade?

Even then Plumlee for Time Lord + Hayward seems lopsided.

I agree.

Is there something I am not getting about the trade?
