And we thought the Lakers spacing sucked last year...Beal on that roster would work wonders.


if they got vucevic shooting 3s out there, the lane would open up like the red sea

4 for 8/10 and 17? Atlanta gets Culver. NOP can grab Hayes/Bol/Goga and someone else at 17.

I don't see Beal being moved right now. Same with Holiday but for different reasons.

I'm thinking Atlanta wants to keep at least 17. Even then 8, 10, 35 may not be enough.


In this draft, I think I'd take the 8+10 over #4. I like my odds with say Reddish and Hachimura over Garland or Hunter alone.

So so dumb... Don't overthink it NOP... Draft Garland. It's a no brainer.

They have no reason to try and appease Zion. He is locked in for 4 years. They already have Holiday at SG and Ingram at SF. They need a star PG to pair with Zion.

What are they adding to the #4 to get Nurkic?


Maybe a motorized wheelchair?

the reason would be to lock him in for an extension after his rookie contract.

expected and reality are two different things

i have Bol as the #2 player in the draft, and would be an incredible front court fit with Zion.

IMO Ingram and #4 (Garland) are the real prizes of this deal. That would give them 2 potential allstar talents to go with Zion. Ball is 3rd or 4th in this deal depending on where the picks land. I would probably just bring him off the bench and if he turns into another one of those 6th man type PGs (Collison, Bledsoe, Rozier before he showed how horrible at basketball he is) then you can trade him or keep him.

that's us as fans rating the assets

bball execs love lonzo and was probably closer to 1/2 than 3/4
