Congrats to Jabari Walker for getting picked in the 2nd round that kid improved so much during his time in college it would not surprise me at all if he winds up finding a spot

We pretty much expected he wouldn't get picked I think he was just done with college. Ben Bolch did a story on him and how hard he worked out while at UCLA. after practice he'd drive across town and do private workouts for hours. Very smart kid so he can always go back and finish up he was determined to get to the NBA or at least try.

Shot is too flat for a shooter he's not a good enough 3 point shooter, he's not laterally quick enough so his defense is iffy, and he doesn't get enough FTA's, takes far too many difficult shots. If he's going to stick in the NBA he has to improve his 3 point shot. But man was he on a roll 2 years ago getting us to the final 4

Lol,
Baldwin Looks like if Klay Thompson and Livingston made a baby.

Could be a real steal…can really shoot.

I'm not real high on him very unathletic but my guess is he'll have ankle surgery and rehab the whole year he's been hurt for most of 2 years now. Has good mechanics he's sort of a skinnier Porter Jr but less athletic

James Jones not bringing in undrafted free agents after the draft concluded is disappointing. The same with not buying a draft pick.

Better believe the Heat and a number of teams are.

Knicks now have 22 picks in the next seven years. They can put together a pretty good package

Kyrie going to the Knicks BOOK IT.

Even the scrubs he brings in have to be experienced.

It's completely predictable.

His hate for rookies is just incompatiable with the GM position and will eventually lead to him being fired.

Especially since he used the Heat as an example. They are very active in scouting.

The Heat loved Stix during the pre-draft. That would have been a great spot for him at #20. Bulter would have been his drill Sargent.

I think SA will be on Jalen Smith in FA, supposedly PHX picked Smith because rumor was SA was going to take him a couple of picks later.

Never seen it spelled out about how the Kings are so often 1 pick off.

2011 Pick Jimmer Fredette at 10, Klay Thompson is #11
2012 Thomas Robinson picked at 5 Damian Lillard picked 6th
2018 Marvin Bagley picked 2nd, Luka Doncic picked 3rd.


History says Jaden Ivey will be great and Keegan Murray will not.

I was big on Murray... poor kid. Now he is stuck being coached by Mike Brown.
