    A sign and trade yes

    Won’t they be over the cap once they sign Jokic? We’d have to take Faried back. I think Vucevic would be more valuable to a team looking to clear salary. Teams like the blazers, hornets, knicks etc

    Oh I got confused. I firmly believe every draft has a few players that go unnoticed or overlooked, that end up outplaying their draft position. It's up to the front office to find those guys. To say that the "draft flattened out" it's like you didn't even give yourself a chance to look for those guys. The draft has never been an absolute hierarchy of best to worst players. Going back to the Payton thing, yes i'm glad we got something back but with this team's drafting record, i'm not sure I have faith in them.

    I have no problem with the swing and miss attitude. but if you do miss you have to take the criticism. Why mention Bell and Kuzma? There are players every year that teams miss out on. I'm not knocking them for that. But if you intentionally trade for a guy and he doesn't pan out? then you deserve some blame. I am at least happy we got something for him. If Hennigan was still here he might've re-signed him.

    I did some research and the pick would’ve been top 7 protected this draft. Last draft it was top 11. Rn sixers are 18th selection. It’s not a bad pick in a deep draft but again I have no faith. The draft flattens at some point, right? And since we’re looking back, no I would have never done that trade. Saric looks to be part of their future as a rotation player. Payton didn’t even make it that far for us.

    The Sixers swapped picks with the Kings from a later deal. I think it was only top 7 protected but I don’t remember the exact protections. Tbh it doesn’t matter for us because our drafting record has been so awful. An early teens pick is still a good pick but I have no faith that this franchise can find the best player (at that spot).

    I agree. No question Payton has all the physical tools and profile to be a really good defender. I don’t know if it’s a coaching or maturity issue. Hopefully he gets it sooner rather than later

    The opposing PG brings the ball, calls the plays, sets his teammates up, basically runs the show. If he’s allowed to do whatever he wants then it does fall on the guy guarding him.

    I mean so what. They’re losing by 30 pts.

    That is such a bone headed play. This is why his option was not picked up. Yes he's playing better. BUT WHY OH WHY shoot the three from that deep. you only need a two to tie. There was plenty of time left on the clock.

    LOL c'mon how do you fudge up an inbounds pass like that. hahahahahaha It's too bad because Hezonja was actually having a quality nba game.

    TANK LOSS LOL

    It just sucks that the 10th player in the draft turns out to be worth...a 2nd round pick. That's getting hosed. That's on Payton and the team.
  14. 2017-2018 Official Season Discussion Thread

    well I guess we got a move. Not sure how I feel about Payton for a 2nd rounder. Protections? unprotected? still...

    I think number 5 sounds like a legit coaching strategy. number 4 is just too obvious :lol:
