    That's interesting, as I haven't seen him fall outside the top 10 in a single mock draft. The only way we get him is if we trade up.

    That would definitely be "whacky"!

    It may not be that Divac is dumb, but there have been rumors that Hield wants out; this might be an offer that he would consider. The problem is, I'm not sure the numbers work.

    2020 Official Draft Thread

    I would love for us to get a 3-and-D wing player - preferably a 2/3 - Devin Vassell or Aaron Nesmith are my preferences. I would also be happy with a good 1/2 - Theo Maledon or possibly Jahmi'us Ramsey/Kira Lewis. I do like Saddiq Bey, but with our current group of 3/4 players, I don't think we really need another. I would like to see us pick up Riller in the second round. Not sure he could make the roster, but he would be a good Lakeland or possibly a 2-way player.

    The odds are pretty good that you can get Tyrrel Terry with pick #45 in the second round. ESPN has him as the #62 player in the draft.

    I see why now, you were doing it as a single trade, where I was trying to do them as two separate trades. That makes a bit more sense. I'm still not sure if it truly works because the ESPN doesn't take draft picks into account - part of why I like the tradenba.com machine better.

    It doesn't work on NBA Trade Machine | TradeNBA because the Magic become hard-capped. https://tradenba.com/trades/JGSHi3P8G

    The numbers don't work for your second trade - but if you kept Ross and put in Fournier instead it might. Assuming that Fournier opts in, of course.

    There are and should be limitations on all of our rights when it comes to public standards and safety. You can't drive your car at 100 mph on I-4, you can't walk into a restaurant in bare feet and a speedo, you can't yell "fire" in a public place (unless there is one), you can't carry a concealed weapon without a background check and a permit. All of these restrictions are to promote public safety. The circumstances of this virus are such that the public health officials have declared that wearing a mask while out in public may significantly slow the spread of this virus. This isn't about your rights, it is about everyone's right not to be exposed to a horrific and potentially lethal disease. If you choose not to wear a mask, you aren't just exposing yourself to germs, you are potentially exposing everyone else around you to whatever you may be carrying. Is it uncomfortable, does it make breathing more difficult and your glasses fog up, does it look stupid - yes to all of the above. You do have an alternative, keep your selfish ass at home. Put on your big boy pants and do your part instead of whining like an entitled child who doesn't know any better. It is not an individual choice, it is the current standard for public safety. Get over it.

    Personally, I think it should be split - if you are on a rookie contract or are a veteran making less than a mid-level contract - 25%, if you are a veteran on a mid-level contract or above - 50%. Easy to figure out and reduces the impact on the guys that don't have that 4th vacation home.

    If you are trying to keep within a certain travel time/distance, USF might be too far. Assuming you are going to house the teams in I-Drive hotels; Amway, Wide World of Sports, RDV, UCF, Lakeland, and maybe one or two of the larger, newer high schools should give you some options all within a 30-45 minute radius. With extensive cleaning time needed between games for health/safety reasons, you probably can't do more than two a day at any one venue; but if you have five venues, that gives you up to 10 games and 20 teams actively competing on a daily basis. I actually think we would have a very good chance of hosting something like that, because we have a large number of high-end hotels, and enough updated facilities already in place to make it feasible; where others on the list may not have both.

    Unfortunately, the discussion is a no win - even if the isolation has managed to flatten the curve, now many will say it probably wasn't that virulent to begin with and we wasted all that time/money for nothing. Apparently they've never heard the saying "better safe than sorry". I can't say I'm honestly surprised, as our society has become so focused on the almighty dollar, with it's most fervent acolyte in the White House. But let's just extrapolate based on numbers we do have. The Lombardy region of Italy has suffered 3,456 deaths out of approximately 27,000 cases. That is an extremely high 12.8% mortality rate. The next region over has experienced 10.7% mortality rate, with 816 deaths in approximately 7,600 cases. We got a better jump on isolation and social distancing than either of those regions, but these two regions of Italy are horrific examples of what can happen if the spread becomes so fast that we don't have sufficient staff/equipment/supplies to deal with the influx of seriously ill people; the mortality rate escalates without sufficient resources to care for them. The fact that Italy's totals are approximately 5,500 deaths in 59,000 cases bears witness to the fact that the lockdown has worked for the remainder of the country. So far, Italy has provided us with pretty clear examples of what does work, and what doesn't. It is now our choice of which example to follow. https://www.statista.com/statistics/1099389/coronavirus-deaths-by-region-in-italy/

    I like Vassel, since he is also a 40+% shooter from 3pt both years of college - granted in limited attempts, but does project well.

    I think it may depend largely on how management is leaning on our free agents and/or if Fournier and Ennis opt in or not. Almost all of our "optional" players are backcourt/wing players: DJ Augustin - Free Agent Michael Carter-Williams - Early Bird Free Agent Wes Iwundu, - Restricted Free Agent Gary Clark - Restricted Non-Bird Melvin Frazier - Team Option I am definitely leaning towards a backcourt player, preferably one who can play both guard spots. We also have to look at who may "fall" out of the lottery. My choices would probably be: Killian Hayes, Devin Vassell, Tyrese Maxey.

    TMF07, just ignore the Newbie and keep doing what you're doing. I think your game thread starters are great. I was a little surprised at your response to Wilbur, as I took his comments as simply a joke; so I'm not sure what prompted your response? It seems very unlike the rest of your posts. Hope everything is okay with you! Take care, and keep on posting!
