Yah, I wanted Hayes at this spot.  He will more likely be a role player and the DEF and athleticism should be good for a second unit.  I would easily trade him for Mo Bamba or Isaac from the Magic who are heavy in the post.

i drafted Bamba for the Hawks in last yr's version of this exercise. i think they did a little better getting Trae and the Dal pick

ok, i guess jmon and i are trading. BIngram, LBall, JHart, pick 1.04 for AD

Up @modogg On deck @modogg In the hole probably @modogg

@Long Ball Larry @Dr. Octopus @scoobus @flranger @Frostillicus @Worm @wikkidpissah @Spartans Rule @Capella @caustic @modogg @SWC   Let's go ahead and start.  I'm concerned if we wait any lon

1.11 -- Timberwolves -- Sekou Doumbouya, F, France

Wolves have a lot of work to do with this roster, and not a lot of options.  We'll take the guy with the most upside left in the draft. Plenty of bust potential with a euro, but his scouting reports sounds good.  Need to take a risk since we have no money to sign anyone.

1.12 -- Hornets - Rui Hachimura, F, Gonzaga

Assuming the Hornets resign Kemba here. Potential small ball 4 for the Hornets. Already a good mid-range guy if he extends that range he can have the potential to be a Marvin Williams replacement. Played 3 years at Gonzaga but still has room to grow his game. I like him and Bridges long term, with Kemba at the point.

CLEVELAND TRADES

JR Smith and the number 26 pick in this year's draft

TO MIAMI FOR

James Johnson, the number 13 pick in this year's draft plus Miami's 2023 lottery-protected first-round pick.  (If pick does not convey, it will convert to a 2nd-round pick, the details of which hardly seem worth figuring out here...)

With the 13th pick in the draft,

The Cleveland Cavaliers select...

Nassir Little, Forward, University of North Carolina

This may be somewhat of an overlap with our first pick of DeAndre Hunter, but we need to take swings on upside and play the percentages.  Little has great measurables and physical profile for the modern NBA, is reportedly a hard worker, and should be unleashed by Beilein's wide-open system.

Quote

He is somewhere between Gerald Wallace and Kawhi Leonard with a hint of Jae Crowder.

JR Smith?

how did you think the salaries would match?

Smith has 15.68 million for this year, but is only guaranteed $3.87.  You can waive him prior to 6/30 and only have the $3.87 on your books for this year.  So you save $28 million.

Sorry, I thought about specifying that, but thought that was implied.

1.14 Celtics select Goga Bidatze, C SuperMegaFunLeague of Putin Playground of Georgia

Time to make Boston a PnR paradise again. We got our Nurkic, do youcic?

 

Nice pick.  Euro Rising Star winner IRRC.  I was considering trading up for him if he fell a few more slots.

I'll draft for OKC.  I would prefer not to pick for SA or Indy since they pick right before the Bulls and I'd be tempted not to act in good faith.

i'll take care of any drafting you need

At 1.15 the Pistons take Nickeil Alexander-Walker, G, Virginia Tech

Detroit has superstars like Griffin, Drummond and Thon Maker up front, but the situation is so dire on the wing that adding Wayne Ellington instantly made the team significantly better. Drafting a big man really not an option.

There’s about 5 wings that I considered here and if I did it over in an hour I might take a different one, but Nickeil’s shooting, defense, versatility and basketball IQ gave him the slightest of edges.

@caustic Want a second team?  I know you lost a pick with the Crabbe trade.

Since it looks like the first round is mostly filled up with the exception of Portland and Golden State (who both pick close to Brooklyn), I’ll take the Kings and their three second rounders.

I could take Portland, I watched a lot of them this year.

I likely won’t be around much tomorrow though, have a super busy day. So if we got to them tonight that’d be ideal.

OK, let's see how it goes this afternoon/tonight.  If we don't get that far, we'll have someone else pick tomorrow.

1.17 Atlanta Hawks select    PJ Washington

With prior ATL picks of #8Jarrett Culver and #10Brandon Clarke showing very strong defensive potential, we are looking at pure offensive potential with this pick.  Intended to pick Tyler Herro, but recognized that PJ Washington while playing for the same team had better 3 point %.  

Feeling like these three will give Trae Young plenty of options in the future to develop with Huerter and Collins.

1.18 Indiana selects Romeo Langford G Indiana

don't feel this way about any other school but Hoosiers should go to the Pacers. i liked the ol' ABA home-designation rule. going after Vonleh too. look what it did for Dipo.

At pick 1.20 Bulls select Bol Bol C Oregon.  Son of, of course, Manute Bol.

I dangled pick 38 to move up to take him at 16 and 18 but was unsuccessful.  Got him anyway.  I have very little expectations for him his first year.  We'll get him a little taste but mainly want to work on strength and conditioning.  7'2" with a 7'8" wingspan and can shoot from outside.  He might be perpetually injured and have a short NBA career but him uniqueness makes him worth in the risk for picks outside the lottery, in my opinion.

ok, with the 23rd selection in the 2019 NBA Draft

the Utah Jazz select

Luka Samanic, F, Union Olimpija

I certainly have some skepticism about the Euro, but Utah can really use a stretch 4 for more offensive creation and shooting.   His defensive deficiencies can be erased by Gobert and/or Favors to some extent, or they can let Favors go and/or they can get a different look even with him at the 5 when Gobert is out of the game.

We could definitely use a point guard, but not sure who is really worth it at this pick and prefer the upside of Samanic.  We'll trade for Conley later.
