    2019 NBA Draft Thread

    I know the playoffs were an important step of our organization, but I hate picking where we are in this draft. I was hoping for a guy who could really help us turn the corner. I hope we get lucky and stumble upon a gem. :-)

    Shhh… we don't want to be giving away any secrets. :-)

    If he's there, I am intrigued by Sekou Doumbouya as a BPA player when we pick. What do you all think of him?

    LOL! Glad to see we don't always agree. Me? On this issue, I am on the BPA side of things.

    What would your strategy be in this draft? Draft for need (SG) or BPA?

    I agree we need sure things, but what resources do we have and are willing to give up? For example, would anyone be willing to trade AG or JI for a player who is more developed today, but who also may not have as high a ceiling?

    Now that the season is over and people are starting to do their homework on the new draft prospects are there any guys that have surprised you in a good way?

    I think his outside shooting is much improved. With his length, I would love to see him develop a nice little repertoire of reliable shots around and in the post so that our team has a variety of ways to score when we are in our half-court offense.

    LOL! I agree with you on Weltman. He's just playing the game. As for what you do at work, that is hilarious! It gives the impression you are a team player, but after it happens a couple of times they stop asking. LOL!

    If I am the Magic, I would offer Ross a fair deal, but come in on the low side. My selling point to him and any other player is that we need to get our cap under control, so we can sign some decent free agents. Free agents cost money, and for a team like the Magic, they probably cost more money than other teams in a high profile market. If we are going to attract good players, we probably will have to overpay. Those here on the team, unfortunately have to pay the price and share the costs. On the surface that probably doesn't sound so good to a guy like TRoss. However, Orlando really loves their team and those players that show loyalty to them. If they like the smaller city life. Then Orlando makes a great home.

    As a Magic fan since the beginning (Yes, I was fortunate to be able to go to game 1 :-) ), I will never get used to feeling like a groom being left at the alter when a player I have come to love gives us the boot.

    If that is true, then I believe TRoss will be forcing us to move on from both of them, which will be disappointing. I really wanted TRoss back. I understand that these guys really like each other and want to be teammates, but we will never get out of our bad cap situation, and be a team that can sign a skill player or two in free agency, if we continue to agree to bad contracts.

    I really like AG, JI, Iwundu, and Bamba and get the concept of drafting very good athletes who are long and play defense better than they play offense, but by the time one of our guys actually becomes a good shooter, I won't be around. I realize there probably isn't much we can do about it with our cap situation and where we are picking in the draft, but I am getting a little impatient. I believe good times are ahead of us, though. Now, we need a little **MAGIC** to help us along. :-)

    Other than his poor performance in the playoffs does Vooch still fit what we are trying to do? If not, then we need to move on. If so, there is always a chance he will improve when we are there next year. For me, ideally, Bamba would end up adding some weight and developing and be our starting center anyway.
