Hoping the Suns take Sullinger or Perry Jones if either are available. They've shown interest in Terrence Ross and some other wing players but i feel we should take the high risk high reward approach if you dont want to stay mediocre forever.

I'd certainly be nervous about giving him big money with his injury history.

don't want to start a new thread since i feel this topic is closely related. let's do a little breakdown:

your most overrated?
underrated?
sleepers?

most overrated:
drummond - i realize his potential is huge but i'm way more on the risk side. not saying he won't be good but franchise player?

barnes - like him as a 2nd option but i'd have my doubts with him as a 1st option

meyers leonard - i realize the improvement but some people are making it seem like he's the consensus #2 C and i just don't see it.

underrated:
lamb - caught my attention a couple years ago and started getting hype. then it seemed people cooled off on him. off ball stuff and coming off screens is obvious but i feel he's getting underrated with his pull up jumper. he also can make a quick dribble and pitch. his across the body passes reminds me of ray allen a bit. not overly precise but effective. quick release comes a long way in this league.

jones III

damian lilard - sort of see him as a deron williams lite. maybe a george hill/courtney lee combo? good wingspan for his size. aggressive and can shoot.

kendall marshall - i love his shot selection. shaky jumper but finds a way to get into the paint and he has great court vision. athleticism is a slight issue but he has nice size to fall back on. floor general - won't take over games but should make his teammates better

sleepers:
royce white - versatile but an enigma

orlando johnson - possibly the next marcus thornton? good offensive game that isn't reliant on iso plays

lots of rumors swirling around, and plenty of posturing by the teams at the top

cleveland is looking to swap 4, and some other picks, possibly 24 and 33, for charlotte's 2, so they can take beal. charlotte wants robinson, who they think will be there at 4. washington is reportedly now into robinson, but this is likely a bluff, to try get charlotte to think that if they swap with cleveland, down to 4, that robinson wont be there, and if washington is successful with this bluff, CLE and CHA wont trade, and they will be able to take beal at 3

its all getting pretty messy, im expecting more trades.

Crazy indeed. Not only with trades but I can see prospects expected to go high go low and vice versa. Also I'm not in favor of Cavs trading up. U?

Wow, that's a lot of things on the table at once. Feels like a middle school gossip mill.

I'm stoked for tomorrow night, and my team only has the second to last pick.
Draft night is always fun to watch.

Will there be any legitimate draft hosts online tomorrow? It'd have been nice to see TNT broadcast it using their TNT Overtime angle.

Never been. If I ever go to a draft it'll be NFL not NBA. Altho this years draft is worth going too. Last years I would have left after Sixers took Vucevic.

I say go for it man. This is the draft to do it. Lakers pick late but there could be some crazy moves that happen during the draft. Besides with a deep draft who knows who Lakers end up with. If its boring, atleast you can let us know that experience.

Go man.
