i have no idea who that is, but im still excited.

we did a trade!

Wait - how many future unprotected firsts did we give the Timberwolves in this trade?

I know the Timberwolves aren’t the team we traded with, but based on the entitlement of some of their posters surely they are getting something from us out of this??

Interesting. Gives us a rim running, hard screen setting option at the 5.

Good future Cody replacement I guess?

Moreover, Richards has improved tremendously on the offensive end, but you can’t help but feel like he’s still a bit mechanical in his approach. He struggled at times when opposing defenses took away his first move towards the basket and his hook shot, while improved, is still inconsistent.

He also lacks some basketball IQ, which is probably a factor of starting basketball so late in life. This is especially apparent in his rebounding and shot-blocking. Sure, his numbers were solid in those departments, but at his size and with his athleticism, he leaves something to be desired. Moreover, his passing needs to improve, especially out of double teams, as does his overall decision-making.


looks more like a Biyombo replacement

Who da fuq is Nick Richards?

I have a feeling if we still have the pick in the 50s we'll get that Joe guy that UNC likes. We always seem to get one of his guys.

What haven't we given New Orleans? They should trade Ingram to us for nothing.

Played at Kentucky. Has a solid wingspan at like 7 3 or 7 4 and averaged a little over 2 blocks a game. Hes older at 22, but has good physical tools.

It’s weird that tonight we drafted a guy from Duke, UK (we cannot go a draft without a UK alum) and an Australian league and the top guy is the guy from the Aussie league. 2020 man.
