    Barrett has the heart that Wiggins never had. I wouldn't underestimate his ceiling

    Ball is a disaster. You can't trade an NBA superstar for a point guard who can't shoot. It's a fatal flaw that impedes your entire roster construction. Lonzo is like a much smaller, much less athletic version of Ben Simmons.
    Right. You don't trade an NBA superstar for a PG who can't shoot. You trade an NBA superstar for the best package of assets available because you're backed into a corner.

    For what it's worth, Jason Kidd's rookie season at age 21 doesn't really look much better than Lonzo Ball's rookie and sophomore seasons at age 20-21. We're talking about a 21 year old here. What you see isn't likely what you get.

    Yeah, he's a great asset. The Lakers really missed Ball on defense when he was out. The mix of LBJ wrecking Ball's flow because has no jumper and Ball's injuries led to a down sophomore year. Ball needs to be in the deal for it to make sense.

    I agree that lonzo better them DSJ. Just like te knocks package better if im the pels
    If they still had Porzingis then a Knicks trade might make sense. I personally think multiple teams can outbid them.

    Ingram has those blood clot issues.. so could be a risk. Kuzma and #4 (so basically not RJ) I guess are the best assets the Lakers have. Also is Ball even a good asset these days? Feels like his stock has dropped quite significantly.

    I'd take the Celtics offer over the Knicks if they include both Brown and Tatum. But I'd take the Knicks offer before the Lakers. Plus you can ship AD to another conference which is another bonus.

    Is it weird Id rather have Lonzo than DSJ? I kinda like the Lakers package more, though the shooting becomes worriesome. Also I kinda like keeping Jrue for a while, its hard to develop 3-4 promising young guys at once.

    The Knicks/Pelicans trade proposed in here is not the best trade available. The Lakers were offering up Ingram, Kuz, picks. An offer of Ball, Kuz and picks would be a better deal.

    DSJ has done nothing in the league. Ball struggled with injuries and doesn't have a jumper but he's a better prospect and has proven more.

    A line up of DSJ, R,J,Zion, Mitchell Robinson with knox and trier off the bench and flip jrue holiday for a young shooting guard. That's a pretty great roster of young talent, They probably would already be better then the suns who have been tanking for 5 years. Knicks trade is making more and more sense to me. Lakers best player is Ingram, and he would be due for an extension soon. I would be willing to take a bet the R.J will be a better player then Ingram. Celtics have jaylen and tatum. The potential of R.J is higher then what brown gives you right now. And tatums games seems to be early 2000's mid range. Right now i have Knicks as the favorite to land AD.

    Whose better then Barrett in your opinion? How much college ball have you watched this year? Tell me what you would do if your david griffin right now?
    I already said i like Hunter. I think he's the 3rd best player in this draft. I also like Reddish, i think he was ridiculously underused by Coach K. I also like Culver of Texas Tech.

    If i'm David Griffin, i'd try and convince AD to stay. If not then i'd offer him to Boston and make sure that Tatum is part of the deal.

    I don't really give a damn what these scouts say. Just a couple if years ago these same scouts ranked Fultz and Ball 1 and 2. Two years later, pretty sure everyone here would take Mitchell, Tatum, Fox, Markkanen over Fultz and Ball. Heck, i'd take Isaac over Fultz and Ball.

    RJ Barrett is not that dude.

    That 4th pick is alot less valuable then the top 3. Zion, Ja morant and R.J barrett are clearly the top 3 players and are the only ones who have star potential according to scouts. Ya their is always some steals in the draft but the #4 pick is vastly worse then the knick #3. It's not the canadian media hyping barret btw. He was projected as the number 1 pick before the season started. American media loves the kid to. Don't see AD ending up on the lakers. Could see them doing something with the knicks for #3, Mitchell robinson, DSJ, Kevin Knoxs, alonzo Trier and maybe another future pick. Thats a better package then the lakers IMO. Not to mention you get to pair up R.J and Zion who are great friends which could lead to them building something really special in NO.

    Zion plus a massive haul from the Lakers or Celtics is a great rebuild start.
