    BTW, every site has a different opinion on this stuff, and fans can usually find one that fits their needs.
    Having said that, I play around on Tankathon quite a bit. They had Jaden Johnson as the #7 overall prospect and the top guy in tier 3:

    ESPN also had him at #12.
    That's a VERY good get at #20 in the NBA Draft.

    Our GM has earned enough credibility at this point to where I'm not too concerned. Nice feeling to have lol

    He is just an unwilling participant in the game of basketball.  Natural talent can only get him so far  - he has to put in WORK and he has refused thus far.

    But isn't that the point? They signed him as a FA and didn't trade away a bunch of their talent and depth to get him.

    Personally I don’t see it happening.  He’s a great scorer but his defense is bad.

    No one wants Kyle Kuzma. I wish the lakers would realize this. Dude is a negative. Laughable they think he is worth moving up 10 spots.

    I honestly think that may be a big addition by subtraction.
     
    Simmons is immature and lazy, which shows more and more each season that goes by.

    So in other words, this article says he won’t see much time, but also says how good he was on the court. Huh

    I fear we would be a worse team with this lineup and loss of depth.
    OO has no PnR chemistry with Trae, nor does he have any perimeter scoring consistency. And KAT may not be a scheme fit. PnR isn’t his strong suit, and he’s not known for rim defense.
    We want a 4 & 5 that can hold the paint down against the Embiid’s and Giannis’, but OO and KAT would actually be a step down from JC and Capela in this regard.
    And then, who the heck comes off the bench when Reddish and Hunter rest??  And is Nathan Knight now the permanent backup at 4 and Gallo at 5?
    It’s pretty much an entire scheme change to make this work.
    We just missed going to the championship by 2 games with our current scheme.  Why are we so dead set on trying to fix something that isn’t broken and clearly works great?
    All we really need is Reddish and Hunter to stay healthy and keep improving/developing/building chemistry with the scheme, a backup PG who runs the floor exactly like Trae, probably a 7-footer who can spell Capela and body up bigs, and then ultimately just find a way to keep our existing core together for the next 2-3 years.

    February.
    Still Draft best available player.
    Bruno and Knight - now is there chance to show us something, ANYTHING.
    We'll sign a big in FAcy.  List in no particular order: Dieng, Noel, Ro. Lopez or we can trade for one:  Zubac from LAC and Plumlee from Detrot (Dunn and OKC 2022 1st, it may take our 2020 1st for Zubac though)

    It's also crazy that Giannis was literally one pick away from being drafted by the Hawks under Coach Bud with the #16th pick back in 2013.
     
    The Bucks under another former Hawks HC Larry Drew swiped him at the #15th pick.
     
    Coach Bud wanted Giannis badly and wanted the Hawks to try to trade up to secure him.
     
    That changed the face of NBA history.

    The comments in that tweet from Trae haters are infuriating.
    Ignorant clowns with Embiid and Giannis avatar pics are calling Trae a “foul hunter” and saying they didnt select him because that’s all he does. That or they are claiming he’s a defensive liability as the reason.
    Meanwhile, check out Damien Lillard’s stats compared to Trae:
    FTA’s/game regular season: 7.2
    FTA’s/game playoffs: 8.3
    Defensive box +/-: -1.6
    Turnovers/game: 3.5
    Assists/game: 7.5
    Points/game: 28.8
     
    Now Trae:
    FTA’s/game regular season: 8.7
    FTA’s/game playoffs: 8.4
    Defensive box +/-: -1.7
    Turnovers/game: 4.1
    Assists/game: 10.1
    Points/game: 25.8
     
    They're virtually the same guy.  Except Trae actually accounts for a few more points in the end due to more assists.
    Not to mention Giannis got 10.4 FTA’s a game and Embiid 12.4.  But Trae is the one who’s foul hunting???
    Haters gunna hate.
    No, the reason he didn’t make the Olympic team is because CLP is the assistant coach. And clearly that dude has something against Trae.
