Thats my boy you guys got there. Take real good care of that kid. The Jones family are royalty for Dukies.

No better place for Tre to land than with the Spurs. Pop is going to love his defense and his IQ on both ends. Get him with a good shooting coach and you got yourselves a nice steal there. He wont ever be an all star or anything, but him with a consistent 3pt shot, he could be a real nice starting PG.

Will do!

His enthusiasm and joy at being picked by us is all kinds of adorable and endearing. I agree that Pop will love his IQ and D. And also those of Devin as well. Looks like we've gone all in on players who actually give a damn and take pride about that end of the ball, which will make for far less frustration this season. Guys that 'get it' rather than spending time getting them to buy in is smoother development. Plus once we have them go through the Chip magic school of shooting, they'll be all the deadlier on both ends. Maybe not the sexy, glamorous picks, but I think we had a very solid draft with both players actually falling to us.

p.s. Look how cute he is all excited!

I preferred Hayes and Okoro but with both gone Knicks went BPA imo and you can never argue with that. Mayyyybe Deni was but I was never super high on him. Obi's flawed but so were the remaining PGs and I think he's gonna be a good offensive player off the bat. Don't think he showed us everything at Dayton where his competition was such that he could just bowl over everyone. His team was a likely 1 seed based on his play. What more do you want?

Don't know much about Quickley but that seemed like a lot of gymnastics for a player that was likely available later. Terrified of a Westbrook deal. Knicks still have a gaping hole at PG.

Ya you guys seem to have a good history of helping guys shots out, that is another reason why I think the Spurs is such a great fit for him. Get ready for some damn good on ball defense, it was a blast to watch for the last 2 years. He also doesnt make mistakes on offense. Like you said, not a sexy pick. But once he gets some time to clean that shot up he will be a rotation guy and if that shot ever gets consistent he can be a solid starter. Great value pick in the 2nd round.

At least Obi can hit a 3-pointer.

Anyone want Randle for a future 2nd?

Am I the only guy who knew next to nothing about most of these guys? March Madness getting cancelled really hurt my knowledge on Draft dudes.

Yeah, I turned it off after Magic selected, I am disappointed that there was not much trades, it would have been more exciting if there are more trades

That's probably one of the most awesome defense clip I've seen, to get the help side block at the end was really cool. smart kid.

Wouldnt post that here. It wont end well. General board hates Bulls. Because even most Bulls fans didnt like pick. At the end this is just scrimmage against marginal NBA players and non NBA players with edited footage so he can look good. Maybe it works out for us 3 years from now who knows.
“If you were grading rebuilds and dropped in on the United Center on Wednesday night, you saw one team flying up the court, launching 3-pointers, sharing the ball and generally looking like it was having a lot of fun. And then you saw the Bulls.”
