The only player we have that has been good enough to generate those stories is Kemba. So if Lamelo gets that kind of attention I will welcome it, because like you said it means he's actually good.

Actually I want to change my pick 56 (who wasn't my pick). I chose Paul Reed (but I didn't actually choose him) my player went undrafted. I want no credit towards Paul Reed. Instead I want to swap him for two UNDRAFTED players. I want to use the future 1st rounder that I would have traded to get Terry on Devin Dotson and I want to replace Paul Reed with LaMar Stevens. So my draft now looks like this

I NOW WANT THIS DRAFT

3 - Tyrell Terry

32 - Tyler Bey

56 - LaMar Stevens

SIGNED TO TWO WAY - Devon Dotson, Tyshon Alexander, Keandre Stevens, Rayshaun Hammonds or Karim Mane

(I will use my future first rounder from Terry on whichever one gets signed. So basically I will acquire which one is signed to a team if any do at all.) Because I wouldn't have drafted Reed and I would have no way to get my future first rounder.

So basically I am trading a future first rounder, and a drafted 56 pick for a bunch of guys noone drafted. UNCNYC STYLE lol.

------
I NO LONGER WANT THIS DRAFT (I NEVER DID ACTUALLY LOL)

3 - Tyrell Terry

32 - Tyler Bey

56 - Paul Reed
UPDATED 11-21-2020

3 - Tyrell Terry - + future 1st

32 - Tyler Bey

56 - Isaiah Joe, Ty'shon Alexander

L Stevens, D Dotson, Rayshaun Hamm, Josh Hall, K Mane, Hinton, Mason J, Cumberland

Sleepers - Mays, Scrubb, Elleby, Krejci

3: LaMelo Ball
32: Xavier Tillman
42: Isaiah Joe
56: Grant Riller

You could convince me to take Riller at 42, but he was there at 56 so I'm sticking with it.

UPDATE I just want to add in a couple more players.

SO TO SUM IT UP - I want NOTHING to do with Paul Reed. If he becomes an allstar I want ZERO credit for that. I drafted him but he has been TRADED. I traded him and a future 1st (acquired from Terry) for potential in undrafted players. I like Paul Reed but I never would have drafted him before the players listed below. If any of these players are signed I will add the player of my choice to my roster.

An easier conclusion would be if I could simply chose this

3 - Tyrell Terry

32 - Tyler Bey

56 - Isaiah Joe

But since Joe went 49 I can't do it.

-----
But anyway. These are the players I want a chance at adding to the roster instead of Reed

PG -
Devon Dotson, Anthony Cowen, Myles Powell, Jarron Cumberland, Abdoulaye Ndoye

SG -
Ty'shon Alexander, Keandre Cook, Karim Mane, Mason Jones,

SF -


PF -
LaMar Stevens, Kristian Doolitle, Naji Marshall, Malik Fitts, Isaiah Mike

C -
Rayshaun Hammonds, Kaleb Wesson
UPDATED 11-21-2020

3 - Tyrell Terry - + future 1st

32 - Tyler Bey

56 - Isaiah Joe, Ty'shon Alexander

Terry moved on to greener pastures to play with Luka. I feel like he's gonna be really good in Dallas .

I agree to a point but the only concern I have with him there is will he get playing time since Luka plays PG there. He might not get much PT.

He could fill Seth Currys role right off the bat maybe.

#3:
I didn't think Lamelo would want to play for us. He seems excited so I would choose Lamelo Ball here if he indeed likes Charlotte. I had him at 100 rating before questioning his loyalty. If there was any question about his loyalty, I would've traded back and chose Hayes.

#32:
After choosing Lamelo, getting an enforcer was all I could think about. I wanted big bully center. Oturu was considered, but ultimately I agree with what the team did here and agree with choosing Vernon Carey Jr.. He is the more physical guy of the two.

#56:
At 56, I wanted Scrubb but he went at 55. So, my choice would be Louis Olinde

I would have considered Okongwu long and hard but ultimately would have probably drafted Ball too seeing as though Wiseman was off the board.

I don't know enough about the second round prospects to really comment but I definitely would have taken Tyrell Terry if he dropped one more spot to us at 32.

the only draft pick I've not wanted more than Ball was Biyombo after watching him lose against a chair. But unless there was a market to trade down (will never know, and I don't want to hear your crap Ainge) I'm happy with taking the last of the big 3.
I still liked Hayes and OO who would have been my targets if we could trade down. My ideal night would be trading 3 to Detroit for 7 and 16, taken Hayes and maybe PokuĆĄevski (hope for a unicorn) or even Bey who Detroit got at 19. But that was probably never possible.

I wanted Tilman at #32, but I'm happy with Carey Jr, he seems to talented in the paint to be ignored.

Riller sounds cool as well. The only name I had at that stage was Wesson as a stretch 5. I still think he should land somewhere.

Every year, once the draft is finished, I automatically end up optimistic about who we pick thinking the team must have got it right.

My official picks were

3 - Tyrell Terry
32 - Tyler Bey
56 - Ty'shon Alexander

But I might replace Alexander for any of the UNDRAFTED players of the 2020 draft down the line.

After some reflection-

I think we may should have traded up to #1 to get Wiseman...even if it would have cost a first round pick in 2021.

I just think when you're that close to both a high potential prospect and a prospect that fills a position of need, you go get that guy and figure out the rest later.

Remember we were slotted to pick 9th iirc, so when you get that close to the top of the board, you want a "hit" as much as possible imo. And unless Wiseman can't play at all, we would've probably be picking somewhere around there again. Losing that pick wouldn't have hurt too bad.

Nevermind the fit issues that bringing in Ball gives. Still need to make a decision on Monk. Apparently, Miles is better when he constantly has the ball. That's before you get to Devonte and Rozier.

Water under the bridge now and hope Ball works out.

It was simple for me, my pick was going to be whichever of Ball, Edwards or Wiseman was available at 3. I would've ranked them as Wiseman 1a, Ball 1b, Edwards 1c. Not worried about fit since we aren't competing and the roster is still a work in progress.

As for #32, I was really hoping we could get Jaden McDaniels, but that's mostly because I've heard him talked up recently, he has an attitude and his brother plays on our team already and it'd be fascinating. I am actually very enticed by Vernon Carey though, I didn't know much about him until after we took him and he seems legit. My take is that he's highly undervalued by today's NBA standards, but his talent is unquestionable. I expect him to have a place on the roster come opening night.
