Its Meh, but we needed a vet PG who can defend. At least we get the #31 pick.

This can’t be. If we just moved 22 for Aaron holiday then we just crapped the bed.

It was a trade down to 31, but I don't think it was worth it. Should have taken Cooper or Springer and called it a night tbh.

Aaron Holiday’s PPA had him as “replacement level”….so….not great.

Hopefully one of Cooper, Butler and Springer are still there and we take them.

I’m also in the not impressed boat.

Maybe Tommy is playing 4D chess and targeting Wieskamp at 31.

Agreed. You either take springer/butler/garuba there.
Or maybe trade back with Utah and get 30 + O’Neal.
But holiday was awful last year.

For the record, I've always liked Holiday. I think he will be better than most expect. Dude can D up.

I
We traded down in order to throw away a 2nd round pick instead of a first round pick.

Tommy is not very good at this draft thing

We'll have to see how it works out, but it's hard to see Aaron Holiday as worth giving up something. Biggest reason: he's guaranteed $4m this year, & then he either gets extended or is gone.

I would much rather have had someone just starting out.

Queta just went. Perkins just predicted that he'll start for Sac'to by the end of the season.

Then Butler & Wieskamp. Disappointing to see that we don't have a grasp of the talent at this level. You cannot pick Isaiah Todd before these guys. Maybe he works out -- I don't want to say that he can't work out. But... to pick him there. No.
Remember -- if you don't like the post above: blame Doc not me.
