I have stopped following Simmons but that actually would be a really good haul for Golden State. They would be getting Steph regular season insurance and Horford is Green lite without the baggage. I bet Golden State would ask for a draft pick as well.Green/Livingston for Rozier/Horford
Yes I stole that from Bill Simmons.
100%. That's why they traded down with confidence -- they were clear on who would go #1 and #2, and knew their guy would be there.Markelle Fultz is broken mentally. I feel for the guy
Debate i had with a friend; if Boston holds onto their #1 pick, do they pick Tatum? I know now they say they would, but also, easy to say that now
That's great news. Whenever you see something like that, I know I personally fear for the viability of the leg/ankle.Apprently Caris Levert dislocated his foot last night and they are saying he will be back this year. Never heard of this type of injury before, but it looked nearly as bad as Hayward’s.
He was def drafted too high, but agree, he's basically been a 20 MPG player every season of his career. He's 11th among all players from his draft class in career minutes, per BBref he's made about $26 million in his career (and counting). Not too bad.Wes Johnson...modest numbers but he’s been starting(with Payton out) and shooting 47% from 3.
He started 40 games last year.
He’s long been considered a “bust” and he was certainly overdrafted, but teams keep giving him a role. Like, every team he goes to he ends up in the rotation. Good for him.
Yup. If he was picked 16th or something, the narrative would be a lot different on him. We knew he had very little off the dribble game at Cuse and he was older when he got drafted(23 I think?), so looking at that now it’s hard to figure why he went 4th. Good athlete, nice looking stroke(honestly thought he’d shoot a better % for his career though), pretty good and fairly versatile defender, good guy. Just was overdrafted.He was def drafted too high, but agree, he's basically been a 20 MPG player every season of his career.

It was pretty insane he was picked before Boogie Cousins though
Turner went 2, Favors 3, Johnson 4 in that draft; the 3 guys before Boogie. I know some of this is hindsight, but man, Boogie was (and is) just so damn talented and skilled, especially for a guy at his size.As for Cousins...my father is a Sixers fan and still talks about how he knew Cousins was a better pick than Evan Turner at number 2. He was harping on it before that draft and still brings it up.
He also was saying back in ‘96 that Philly should take Kobe #1. Obviously Iverson was a great Sixer, but he still brings up how he was the only one saying they should take Kobe back then.
He was right both times, lol.
What's funny is...Turner went 2, Favors 3, Johnson 4 in that draft; the 3 guys before Boogie. I know some of this is hindsight, but man, Boogie was (and is) just so damn talented and skilled, especially for a guy at his size.
If I was a good team, (any team, really, but especially a good team) I wouldn't want to touch Melo. Seems like more trouble than he's worth.
I think the Cavs will for sure trade him at some point. I don't think this season. Could be wrong, but his injury doesn't helpI could see the Cavs trading Love and the Lakers aren’t a bad fit.
Ingram and fillers.
