    Some thought Deni Avdija would have been the Suns 2020 draft pick if he fell one more spot.

    He had a solid rookie season.

    That was really ugly and happened late in the game. They came running out and put a cover over his ankle because the foot was turned around.

    Good to know. A hairline ankle fracture paints a different picture.

    THe Warriors tv guys wouldn't even show the replay. they cut it before you could see the foot.

    FYI it was end of the half not end of the game as I said earlier.

    The picture you posted the guy is putting something over the foot to cover it

    Lots of guys on this board were touting Haliburton, boy is he impressive. Watched most of the Kings and Warriors game last night. FOX didn't play so Haliburton was the PG, he's got a very old school game, push shot, but he's really good. Very impressed. I don't know if they can play him, Fox and Hield together Hield is too small to play the 3 and so is Haliburton but they're pretty nicely set with those 3.

    They mentioned it during the game it sounds like the Kings are close to giving up on Bagley. he's missed just under half the games in his NBA career due to injury and there's a feeling in the organization they just don't want to keep waiting for him to stay healthy they may move on. They picked up the option on him before last season so this is the last on his rookie deal and apparently they're strongly considering moving on.

    Even if Bagley doesn't break out next year, I can see a lot of teams having interest in him as a free agent. He's got the tools to be a solid player, provided he can stay healthy. I think he needs a change of scenery though as the Kings have been super dysfunctional ever since he was drafted.

    I can see a future starting back court of Fox and Haliburton for Kings.

    I don't know what Bagley is particularly good at. If he gets healthy IMO he is like a Morris brother... only without the techs but also without any defending. He may develop into a decent rotation player, if he can stay healthy, but I don't see any sign that he has star potential.

    Devin Cannady apparently broke his leg contesting a fast break layup. Hope for a speedy recovery..

    Yeah the offense was supposed to be good enough to offset his defense while he got better on defense, but the offense isn't as good as expected, and the defense is not much better than when he was a rookie.

    I always assumed he was an AAU product player and would get better in the NBA with real coaching, maybe he needs to be on a team like the Spurs or the Raptors where the staff seems to develop players.

    I kinda wonder what Monty could make of him. I have a hunch that Bagley will eventually be a good player. I know Russ mentioned the Spurs and Raptors as player development teams but Monty has also done a pretty good job of developing players, especially defensively. Even Frank is playing decent D.

    I wonder what it would take to get him.
