    We would have to pick up a veteran minimum third center

    I agree. Without the pick "swap", this deal makes more sense. I just hope Bamba can handle full time backup center duties next year.

    I like DiVincenzo, I think he plays pretty tough, and is a constant movement kind of guy; but I don't like him well enough to give up our best screener and move down 9 spaces in a mediocre draft. Will there be a decent guy left at 24? Maybe. But even if he is in the same "tier" of talent as the guy you get at 15, the choices and "fit" won't be the same. If you like a guy (or two) in that tier, you are better off at 15, where you are more likely to get him.

    I wouldn't do this deal. Maybe I'm missing something, but we would give up Khem and slide down 9 spots in the draft to get a below average shooter. That's on a team where Giannis is getting people open shots, too. Does Donte DiVincenzo do something I don't see in his stats?

    I'd rather draft at 15 or move up to a better pick. We need a solid young play maker and scorer.

    Maybe they like the age, 3 and D of Divin versus the players available at 15. It has been said to be a weak draft class.

    Toronto aren't trading Kyle Lowry. Come on. Also pretty sideways move for us. Every chance the guy we get at 15 is better than Divincenzo.

    We all have a bad take every now and then. Herro is quickly becoming one of my favorite players

    Just to keep up the tradition of the board... not a reputable site.

    I’m not sure why the Magic do this move? It’s kind of a sideways move to me, and you drop 9 picks.

    I think there is a good chance we move up in the draft

    Since the bubble began I've been wondering is this just a streak in a place where there's little outside life or distraction or is this a young dude turning a corner who is going to lead the league in scoring once James Harden starts to decline.

    Not bad, I haven’t seen him play ever so if we get him I hope he’s not gun shy at all. Whoever we get has to to have that intangible “it” factor. For example I really like Wes but he doesn’t seem to want to take over a game. That want to takeover alpha dog is the kind of guy we need. Evan seems to want to but does not have the ability against the good teams.

    5.2 for Maledon, 5.6 for Herro.

    How many did they attempt per 40 minutes?This is the true measurement of confidence.

    2020 Official Draft Thread

    Maledon shot 35% from 3 in Europe. Herro shot 36% from 3 his lone year at Kentucky. Evaluating shooting form and shooting indicators is a perfectly reasonable thing to do considering most prospects haven't built enough of a sample size to be confident in the numbers holding up.

    We need a confident shooter!!! No “he looks like he has a good stroke crap”. A Herro or d. Robinson type. These type of guys roll out of bed and can shoot. That’s what we need. Period

    Here's a random question: is Tracy McGrady still in that role working with Alex Martins? I remember when we first brought in Weltman TMac got some kind of "special assistant to the CEO" type role and it was seemingly never mentioned again.

    It was only a hypothetical but at the same time Maledon isn't a non shooter. His jumper looks good and hes got enough positive indicators that I think he'll be at least a decent shooter. As pertains to his hesitancy and passive nature, he was a 19 year old playing in the second best professional competition in the world playing with a couple guys who have been drafted and the team game is much more emphasised in Europe. He scored 7.4PPG in the Euroleague, the team high for his team is only 10.5. Not to say he's not passive but it's hard to judge in that context. He's been more aggressive getting his own offense in FIBA competitions playing with his own age groups from what I gather.

    https://hashtagbasketball.com/nba-draft/content/everything-you-need-to-know-about-theo-maledon I'll be pissed if we draft someone who can actually shoot and then swap him for another point guard who can't. He sounds like another Frank Ntilikina.

    Yeah he is incredible. I watched the game until the 4th last night and fell asleep. Lakers seemed done by then. Checked the box score, as usual team that won shot 3's better. At least the lakers only took 26 3's. I hate when teams are missing badly and toss up 40 attempts anyway. The bubble is just the perfect storm for shooters.

    One final thought on the draft this morning: We should be on the phone to Freddie Gillespie's agent right now saying if he doesn't get drafted we'll give him a deal. 1. He's 6'9 with an alleged (and i stress that word because it's from his own mouth and there's every chance he was just hoping there'd be no combine and he could boost his stock) 7'6 wingspan. 2. He's one of the grittiest, hard working guys in this draft. He basically learned to play basketball while at Baylor. He transferred there from Div III, redshirted a year and became one of the best defensive players in college basketball over the next two seasons. 3. Hes a great culture guy. I heard a quote in an interview where he was asked to describe himself and he said "I'm not a low maintenance guy. I'm a no maintenance guy." And I just thought that was great. He's probably not an NBA rotation player but hes worth a shot on intangibles and length alone.
