Recommended Posts

We aren't getting the number one pick for kemba.  You're delusional.

Enlighten us with your break down of Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and why in the world he can replace Kemba Walker. 

I've never said I wanted that guy once. I did however say I prefer MPJ (Michael Porter Jr), if we were going to make a trade up to the Cavs pick.

i like Porter but I read there are concerns with his back long term.  Not sure its worth the risk.

I like Sexton a lot.  Dude is fearless like a mini Russell Westbrook.  Not saying he's on that level, but if he gets his jumper down, and learns to share the ball more he could be pretty damn good.  A lot of the mocks have him going earlier than 11 now so not sure he makes it anyway.

We have rarely seen a draft where the projected Top 10 are exactly taken as projected. There is always a player that drops like Monk did the last draft. 

Definitely Gone: Ayton, Doncic, Bagley III, Jaren Jackson, Bamba 

Most Likely Gone: Trae Young, Wendell Carter, Porter Jr., Mikal Bridges

Options at 11: Sexton, Miles Bridges, SGA, Knox, Lonnie Walker, Zhaire Smith, Robert Williams.

So my question if one of the Most Likely Gone players drop, would you take them over the other options at 11? 

I think I would be extremely happy with Porter Jr. He would be my dream pick even with the back concern. Wendell Carter and Mikal would be BPA if they drop. The only player I couldn't see us picking would be Trae Young due to the size next to Monk. As for the other options at 11, I could really make a point for any of those players.

He would be worth it, honestly.

So what do you all think about Kevin Knox? I am starting to really like his potential. Also he could play either the 3 or 4 which would be very nice.

Got similar size to Tatum and Paul George but he wasn't as refined as a freshman as those guys but has the tools.

Knox is just another MKG

I really want Mikal Bridges

A athletic 3 and D wing to come in where the new head coach is from the Spurs system.

We Need someone who can hit a jumper besides Kemba.  

Kemba, Monk, and Bridges starting together has some nice potential

I think Mikal will probably be off the board. If he is who are you looking at? My way of thinking is the following: 

If we trade Kemba, find a way to get SGA. He would be a great complement to Monk. Or we could go the route of SG if we think Monk is our PG and get a guy like Zaire Smith or Lonnie Walker. 

If we don't trade Kemba, I want to upgrade the SF, PF position. In that case I have been thinking Knox or Miles Bridges (less excited about Miles but think Mikal will be off the board).

No he's not.. Knox is a scorer with questionable defense.. MKG is a pure defender with no scoring amplitude..

Reminds me of Barkley coming out of Auburn with a better jumper..

Does this looks like anything M K Or G to you? 

He looks more like a offensive Greek Freak .. A tall long SF..

At 11 we're not going to get a guy that's going to make a direct impact anyway. So, doesn't really matter. 

For the most part you are right.. But either of the Bridges can come in and start day 1.. Miles IMO can come in and avg. 10 to 15 points and 7rbs a game at SF for this team...

I'm okay with Knox, Miles, or whoever at 11. But, if somehow one of those guys that might be a "can't miss" falls. I think we should take him, regardless of position.
