You couldn't be more correct. This exact situation happened with Malik and we couldn't look past him to Mitchell once he fell.

So yeah it seems you are right. Also, last year Hali went 12th

Looks like pre-draft workouts have begun.

We had some dudes in, but no one of note.

Seeing how young the team already is, I don’t hate that.

yup, and Turner himself just turned 25 in March, so he definitely fits the timeline. He's one year younger than Graham, and two years older than PJ/Miles/Monk

Is Turner injury prone? Or was this a particularly bad season for him?
Your Charlotte Hornets! We’ll eventually get something right;right?

Really starting to feel like we need to go for Sengun if he is there at 11. I think he could be Al Jefferson with better defense.

He isn't a jump out the gym athlete or guy who measures super long but you can't argue with putting up numbers in a decent league. He is obviously skilled at putting the ball on the floor for one or two dribbles around the basket and getting bunnies. LaMelo would get him the ball in a lot of good post up spots.

Our team has good 3 pt shooting but no real threat near the basket. He could be similar to Sabonis or Jokic without the passing. He looks like he has a solid lower body and that is important for a big to play physical and get rebounds.

Sengun sounds too much like Vernon Carey. I hope Kupchak has his eyes on other players.

Passing on Mitchell (and Adebayo for that matter) was a mistake. Still, goes both ways seeing last year Haliburton was the one who dropped. I remember screaming at the screen watching the Knicks and Suns pass on him.
