    everyone shitting on where Zion went. but they're not in a bad spot if they deal davis.......to us of course.

    kuzma
    ball (or ingram)
    pick
    Wagner or hart

    not a bad group of young guys for him to be the star of if you ask me.

    consensus schmensus

    Kemba 9th
    Klay 11th
    Kawhi 15th
    Steph 7th
    Butler 30th
    dame 6th


    fact is, outside of a guy like Zion, it's all a crapshoot.

    if we keep the pick, let's hope we get lucky

    Can reorder the lottery anyway you want from a team standpoint and the same 3 guys are likely going 1-2-3. Doesn't mean there won't be other guys that surprise down the line..doesn't mean the consensus Top 3 guys will all pan out. Just the current standing. I've been shitting on the 2015 and 2017 drafts in recent days, so I'm well aware

    Woj just said " no change " on AD's stance.
    Still wants out.

    I want bol bol and jaxson Hayes.
    Shot blocking seven footers with 3 point range.
    We have loads of tweeners that need to play at sg sf or even pf eventually.
    Center is our weak spot.
    AD don't want to be a center.
    Trade down with Atlanta for all their picks.

    I watched Bol play as a junior for Mater Dei a year or so ago. Unreal.

    Including Zion....

    Marc J. Spears@MarcJSpearsESPN
    Zion Williamson was QUICKLY whisked out of the room after Pelicans were announced the winner of the draft lottery. Source said the former Duke star was rooting to go to New York, but now is going to New Orleans








    Exactly what the Pels deserve for what they pulled on both AD and LAL at the trade deadline. Their new star also doesn't want anything to do with them. Griffin obviously wasn't there at that time, so its a bit unfair to him. But Gayle Benson and Mickey Loomis have to eat this shit sandwich.

    He literally did a 5-7 minute interview for ESPN in the same room.

    Yeah, he apparently has the best jump shot in the draft.

    One tidbit from Celtics assistant GM Mike Zarren - the 14th pick came within one ping pong ball of landing at No. 4.





    Lol And Boston was also denied Memphis' pick. Ainge probably had another heart attack. Oh and Terry Rozier wants out of Boston.

    Only logical conclusion from Spears' tweet is that Zion was brought back into the room after exiting.


    Natalie Weiner@natalieweiner
    anyone who can see the way alvin kamara lives should not be sad about the prospect of being a beloved young star in new orleans




    Maybe Zion will come around on the idea of playing in N.O.? But it seems the secret is out. Like any other sane person, he wanted N.Y. over N.O.

    Windhorst says the Pels still don't want to make a deal with LAL, still would rather AD go east. If he's accurate, this is on Loomis and Gayle Benson.

    That said, most guys of AD's stature do end up in the opposite conference by trade. Root against the Knicks and Bulls. Likely the only teams out east we should fear he'd stay with beyond next season

    In addition -

    Just reported that Gayle Benson is the one that doesn't want AD going to the Lakers..bitch that doesn't even care about the Pelicans at all. All she cares about is the Saints.

    Mickey Loomis, Benson's top lieutenant, empowered David Griffin to make the best trade possible - " no handcuffs " - otherwise Griffin wouldn't have taken the job.

    So that's that, I guess. We're back in. Lol

    Last night's lottery may finally be the thing that kills Stephen A.
