  1. The consensus was all over the place for Hield. Now that he's been somewhat of a disappointment this season, people (myself included) are quick to pay themselves on the back. It's been a very slow developing draft class. Arguably, the top 3 rookies this season are all from previous drafts (Embiid, W Hernangomez, Saric). The best player from the draft class has been a second rounder (Brogdon), one of the other top performers was undrafted (Ferrell). The only top draft picks that there isn't at least a little bit of disappointment have been Murray and MAYBE Chriss.
  2. Right now, he's looking like he's going to be more Anthony Morrow than JJ Redick or Kyle Korver (which were probably his ceiling comparisons). He'll have a place in this league for a long time, but I think it's more mediocre rotation player than exceptional starter.
  3. In catch and shoot situations he was thought to have a uncommonly rare ability, but he was no where near the shooter off the bounce, especially prior to his senior year. The rest of his game wasn't suited to be a top ten pick, especially because he was a senior. Personally, I never understood why he was in the conversation of the top 8 picks and I definitely didn't understand why he was picked ahead of Murray.
  4. Cleveland has some sort of 2019 2nd rounder available. Maybe Cleveland could trade that 2nd rounder for Lawson? He's been a decent backup PG this year.
  5. I have to think that NO is going to be looking for a shooting guard the next couple days. Who is available on the cheap that would also be an improvement for them? Jodie Meeks? Would Portland consider an Asik (plus Pondexter for cap purposes) for Crabbe swap to save a bunch of money? Maybe Denver would trade Barton for Frazier and a first?
  6. We've had this discussion a number of times, but at the time the trade they ended up making for Gordon was a much better trade. Even in retrospect the Gordon trade was better because they ended up with Davis when they probably wouldn't have otherwise.
  7. He's one of the best defenders as his position in the league and he's improved immensely on offensive to the point of being an elite shooter and a decent to good offensive player otherwise. He's not going to be the first or second offensive option for any decent team but he'll do everything else a team needs to win a title.
  8. Yeah, I think Crowder is one of the top 30-40 trade assets in the league with his crazy good contract (3 years AFTER this season at about $22 million total) and he's probably one of the best 10 or so small forwards in the NBA. I would love for the Nuggets to snag him.
  9. My point was they don't really have the salaries to make it happen unless they take Mahinmi.
  10. I don't believe that. Even at vucevic's highest value and cousin's lowest value a couple years ago, that would have been laughable.
  11. Wasn't the Nash well received? Obviously it ended up being terrible and in retrospect that shouldn't have been surprising, but we (this thread) thought it was a good move at the time. A lot of stuff went bad all at once for the Lakers a few years ago to get to this point, and not all of it was the Lakers management's fault, IMO. That isn't to say that they haven't ran the franchise into the ground the last 3 or 4 years since the Nash trade.
