    Just as an experiment, while Pascal is double-teamed, I'd like to see him on the floor with Lowry, FVV and Thomas at the same time on the perimeter. It would start raining pretty quick.
    Well, by the look of things the Celtics are committed to Hayward-Tatum-Brown-Walker, so Pascal is going to see one of Hayward or Tatum. Theoretically, that's a good matchup for Toronto....

    I think we'll start to see them Friday. Celtics are very familiar with Siakam and what he can do. Gentry is managing a large rotation and a new roster in New Orleans with a lot of young guys - I think his focus is a little different re defense in that he just needs to get them to play solid team defense. Boston will come after Pascal.

    These are some nice under the radar players who could be good:
    Montrez Harrell
    Jusuf Nurkic
    Mitchell Robinson
    Thomas Bryant
    Richaun Holmes
    Are the top 2 really under the radar? They already are good..

    I'm not sure who will be the primary defender on Siakam, but he should have a size advantage on anyone Boston can send at him, if not a quickness advantage.

    Thomas Bryant is my choice, but he's already getting early MIP hype like Pascal was last year. Wiz aren't letting him go anywhere.

    I'll continue your list by throwing a complete dartboard of names out there:

    Malik Beasley
    Aaron Gordon
    Willy Hernangomez
    Bodgan Bogdanovich
    Skal Labissiere
    Kris Dunn
    Dragan Bender
    Markelle Fultz
    Josh Jackson
    Dwane Bacon

    This game 1 Pascal is a version I wasn't expecting to see right out of the gate. 34 pt, 18 rebounds, and 5 assists along with a couple of blocks? Hope he doesn't burn out :-)

    The double teams are going to start by next week. Open shots for everyone else on the floor with him.

    Any thoughts on who could be the next guy to be plucked off a roster and break out for a new team?
    Stanley Johnson

    I feel like Gary Harris could be a oladipo like guy, He's always going to be in Jamals shadow but he a very good player in his own right. He's the type of guy that changes team and people who havent seen him much go holy shit this guy is good.

    Bigs aren't valued so much anymore, but KAT seems like a guy who might be attainable if Minny has yet another bad season. He has all the tools to be a great defender...maybe a change of scenery and a winning culture?

    Beal I find less intriguing as a "room to grow" type guy. He's good, but seems to have reached his ceiling already.

    D. Booker, Heild and De'Aron Fox are guys I think have another level (or two) to go.
    Sorry but none of those guys are undervalued.

    Trade is still possible if you can find the next Oladipo, Harden, D'Angelo Russell, etc... an undervalued young player that gets traded and blows up for your organization. Raptors did that before with Lowry.

    Terrible thought but championship shot every time ..... but this team doesn't really have a Siakam behind him like when Demar was traded....

    Like it or not, Masai has to find a way to SIGN an elite FA here to play with Pascal, we're not trading for one.

    That type of Kawhi for DeMar trade scenario will never happen again where we have a shot at a top 5 player. But if it did and Pascal was the sacrificial lamb would you rather have one more year with a top 5 player and a shot at winning another championship or would you have the next 4 years (potentially another contract) with PS?
