2021 NBA Draft Thread

Recommended Posts

Since we're likely to have a top 5 pick in this draft I thought we'd better get this topic going. Here are the names that seem to be most in the top 5 pick discussion right now (roughly in the order I'd draft them):

Cade Cunningham 

Evan Mobley

Jonathan Kuminga

Jalen Green

Jalen Suggs

I predict that when we'll be decently healthy again, we'll still try to be as competitive as possible, and we'll miss the top 5 somehow...

Good idea.

I really want Cunningham, like everyone. But I love that Kuminga is emerging as a slightly similar but less heralded player, and then there's still Green. I think that's 3 quality players across the swing positions in a draft we really need to be focusing on.

I really hope this is all serendipity for us. Bad luck for a good future outcome. If we get one of these guys and they are impact players straight away... at this point i'd be so happy that I don't think I'd even care if we didn't dismantle the entire roster but ended up with a talent so overwhelming in their gravity that we truly had to build around them right away.

Might be the only way any of us stay sane lol.

Ayo Dosunmu please, thanks

He's projected late 1st apparently, so are you hoping we get another 1st somewhere along the line or? Because hell, I'd be happy with a lottery and a late 1st and pick up wings with both lol

Kuminga and Isaac going forward will be nasty. Would be my dream. Happy with any of the top 5 though.  For the make up of our team I would argue Green is best fit as our future alpha scorer. That’s why  I wont understand it if we don’t make trades and play the kids for rest of season with the chance to go into next year with a line up of Fultz, Green, AG, JI and Vooch.

I actually really like a bunch of guys in the late lotto to teen range in this draft (Ziaire Williams, James Bouknight, Sharife Cooper, Franz Wagner to name a few) so I'm really hoping we can pick up another draft pick by trading some guys.

I’ve seen 12th pick and rising. And as I watch the Illini he is becoming a hell of a player. Clutch, takes over games. Gained a lot of muscle and unstoppable on fast breaks. The alpha I am looking for.

Well yeah we do need one of those for sure. Sounds good. Cheers for the info!
