as do I it's a really hard choice.

Did you know they played on the same AAU team?

I thought that was encouraging for our wings if we did draft Trae.

Yeah I saw some video.  Speaking volumes that both Atlanta and Phoenix like Trae.  Bulls and Clippers praying for Porter to drop.   Lots of smokescreens and outright lying starting to emerge.  Absolutely riveting, intriquing draft.  If Trae's workout last Thursday was great and I think lack of info is a good indicator that it was then he is likely to be our pick.  Can't wait for HeLove Trae and TraeYoung4thewin's posts if it occurs.

I have a feeling we're going to end up with Wendell Carter which is fine but we're just a couple picks away from special

Story of the rebuild. 

I’m all for Carter though. I actually just want Carter or Bamba at this point assuming no dream scenarios where a guy like JJJ falls.

I think the Atlanta pick is where we need to focus our attention and where the draft becomes the most intriguing. Hypothetically if Atl covets Young (and I'm not sure that they do but lets pretend) it makes sense for them to move down and gain future assets. Our pick is right where the start of Trae Young window opens so again, hypothetically, we would be the team that would be the most ripe to make a deal with. #3 would likely give us the choice between two of Bamba, JJJ, or Doncic and then we focus on moving back into the first round for a player like Sexton, SGA, or Okobo depending on how high up we can get. If you think about our front office they've really not done anything yet, aside from fire/hire a coach, not extend Mario, and punt on a late first round pick. It's time for them to aggressively put their stamp on this team and a scenario like this seems possible at the very least.

No, actually we were a couple meaningless losses away from the second pick
