    I want a PF and a PG don't care if it's the draft or FA or a trade. Draft BPA most important move is getting rid of this coaching staff

    i agree that coaching is a major priority
    but regardless of the damage they can do in another season
    who we draft or trade for could impact us for up to a decade or more

    He doesn't have PG skills, which is okay, because he is a back-up SHOOTING GUARD.

    well, at .37% he's not much of a shooting guard either

    I don't know what the Ignore Squad folks are saying, but I am not crazy about a rookie PG either. I admit I've seen very little college basketball, so I may be grossly undervaluing Morant. I would much prefer an established point guard, especially if he can defend and shoot. Morant, from what I've seen, can't do either. Again, I've seen only a handful of games, so maybe I am missing something.

    That’s nice and all, but the odds on getting a vet point guard that moves the needle more than Tyler Johnson are next to nothing.

    Well sure, but that can be said about just about anyone. If I can't secure Holiday or someone like that, then I draft Morant, but ideally, I'd prefer someone who is not a rookie who can't shoot or defend.

    coaching doesn't seem to be changing, (for better or worse... I suspect worse, but that's another subject) so there's no reason to belabor the point right now, IMO which is why I agree with your last statement.

    would you give up the 2nd pick in the draft to get Holiday?

    Well you won’t get Holliday before the draft, so it will have to be as Cheese said—a draft day trade. I just don’t think the #2 is on the table for Holliday.

    He is a so-so back-up shooting guard, which is what I said when the Suns traded for him.

    Then we're officially screwed, because Johnson as a point guard does not move the needle at all, and Morant as a rookie would move the needle negatively.

    If we drop out of the top 2 I am all for a trade for a legit PG. I think it’s going to be harder to get a PG as you say that moves the needle later in the draft verses a serviceable PF later in the draft.

    Yes, but with a disclaimer that I really haven't watched any of the prospects enough to be reasonably sure I am right about their value. In general, I would absolutely trade a number two pick in a weak draft for (arguably) the best defensive point guard in the NBA who also happens to be a pretty good scorer.

    Oh I am not arguing that it is or isn't. I am simply saying I'd rather have an established point guard that we KNOW can play than a rookie who does some things well but has major holes in his game.
