Just filed to http://nba.com : Kings put No. 8 on the trade block, wanting veteran instead of next rookie to develop. Link to come.

Carlos Boozer + the 16th & 19th picks for the 8th pick. Everybody wins!

He has a higher ceiling but it depends on his shooting bouncing back to freshman levels and him finally staying healthy. Stauskas is safer because you at least know he's going to have one elite NBA skill.

So many overpaid PFs.

The first real rumor after the lottery was that they're shopping the Sacramento pick for a a vet with leadership experience.

I assume that vet will also be a point guard they will start ahead of Isaiah Thomas for Reasons.

The Cavs rule and will use the #1 overall pick to draft a running mate for Bennett. Honestly they can't make a mistake that bad again...or can they?

I read getting the three #1s in four years that they did was a 13,000-to-1 chance.

As I think about it, letting Cleveland have a do-over from last year doesn't seem unfair.

Since your team automatically improves minus Rudy Gay, he will probably be traded 3 times a year for the rest of his contract life.

To be fair to Cleveland Anthony Bennett is a pretty terrible player and giving them a second chance is for the best.

Maybe instead of a new first pick they could have gotten a do-over of last year's draft.

In my experience goons are typically really happy if their team drafts an elite (or perceived elite) shooter so I'm sure that even though Harris is the better prospect a lot of posters here would rather have Stauskas

I've seen Michigan/Michigan State play each other like 5 times in the last two years and even though I'm an alumni and huge homer for Michigan I can't see any reason why anyone would rate Stauskas over Harris. Harris has like all the same scoring skills as Stauskas and plays way better defense to boot.

Patric Young projects as a stupid jerk who I wrote profiles for two years in a row before he went back to school each year like a big dumb idiot. Anyways he actually has tiny arms and has a very short standing reach for a dude that's 6'10 so that will probably hurt his rebounding and/or his ability to eat Jeff Goldblum

E: Realistically speaking, he's a garbage man on offense (albeit a very athletic and strong one). He wasn't a great rebounder in college and probably won't be in the NBA either, but he should (theoretically) be great at defending the pick and roll and can body up with most centers in the NBA. He'd be a great backup big man or an okay starter.

When I was 17, my father was so stupid, I didn't want to be seen with him in public. When I was 24, I was amazed at how much the old man had learned in just 7 years.
I don't know why I'm so bothered by Marcus Smart because I've seen him play and he wasn't bad, it's just I feel like the descriptions of him are actively trying to fool me. Like when people talk about Aaron Afflalo's defense.

Harris is short and injury prone and can't shoot and went to Michigan State gently caress him

Looks like a clear case of being in decline, he'll presumably be even worse in the NBA.

Not that I need to care about any of these players, unless they're looking likely to drop to the #38 pick. At least that trade freed up the cap space to sign Brandon Jennings and Josh Smith! ha...ha....:suicide:

Sacramento fans seem to absolutely hate the idea of Aaron Gordon because who wants to use the #8 pick to draft a super athletic forward who plays really good defense when he's an inch too short and has no jumper

probably no room for him once Mirotic comes over

The guy I'm most intrigued in for the Bulls is Kyle Anderson. His biggest liabilities are 1) being slow as hell and 2) having bad defensive mechanics. But being slow is no big deal in the Bulls offense, and Thibs tends to turn guys into good defenders

How serious are Embiid's injuries? It's a knee sprain and a stress fracture in his back, right? Just wondering if Cleveland will be remembered for drafting Bennett and then chronic back problem Embiid in consecutive drafts 10 years from now when Embiid and Bennett are both out of the league.
