I’d be shocked if we can get value for him

Crowder's value is mostly filler in a trade for another player.

Of course teams seem lined up to sign PJ Tucker although I'm not saying they are equivalent. However, they are the same type of player.

Paola Banchero now favored to go number 1 overall?

Massive bust.
I wouldn't take him first in this draft but I don't see "massive bust". I worry that even Coach K couldn't get him to give full intensity consistently but IMO he has too many gifts to be a massive bust. He should have a fairly long NBA career and if he ever decides he wants to be more than a Boris Diaw level player, he could end up being very special.

The draft order of players is firming up among the top three.

Sounds like Ivey is a lock at #4 too.

The problem is we do not know if the Pistons want to do a sign-and-trade or instead, do an offer sheet for Ayton.

It does seem the Suns like Ivey.

Sac is #4. I think they take Ivey or draft him to trade him.

I may be wrong, I often am, but I'm not all that high on Banchero. I think he has a lower floor than say Holmgren, he already has an NBA body, Chet not even close, but I don't think his ceiling is all that high. I think he'll be good but the odds of him being the best player from this draft I think are not that great. good not great athlete. Shot 34% from 3, shot is not broken but he's NOT a knockdown shooter. The one thing he does really well given his size and position IMO is pass the ball, 3.2 assists as a primary scoring option in college is good. He apparently didn't attend the combine so we don't have his height and reach measurements?

I don't think he'll be a bust but I think the odds of him being a star are lower than you want for the first overall pick he's not an explosive athlete, he's not a great shooter, he wasn't a great rebounder in college, although he played with another first round pick on the frontline.

Safe pick but probably not a great pick IMO

Seems like some guys must have guarantees. I don't understand why Peyton Watson is going up in mock drafts unless he has a guarantee, his reach and vertical at the combine were not as good as expected, he didn't play in the scrimmages. His workouts for teams nobody has been screaming this guy is amazing so I assume they saw what we saw at UCLA, intriguing but nowhere near ready.

But he's gone from late 2nd undrafted to middle of the 2nd to possibly late 1st round in mocks so I suspect he must have a guarantee.

If only I had such worries or the Suns even had a draft pick.

I will take your word for it because I'm not all that familiar with Banchero.

Smith has more upside I think he's longer, I think he's much more athletic, and he's still growing into his body. Banchero is ripped but he's not all that quick, not a great leaper and not a great shooter. he can score absolutely I seriously doubt he'll be a bust but I would not be at all surprised if in 3 years he's not among the 5 best players from this draft.

Are ANY of those players better than DA? Then lets not **** up the team just to get rid of him. Sign DA and sit on him if we have too.
Then trade him for FULL value. Anything else makes the front office the biggest group of morons ever assembled.

Lakers outworking the Suns? That's a sweet deal.
