    On a side note, if PJ was still here, I wonder if we’d have to worry that he’d go Doumbouya at #3?

    Yeah Lebron otherwise what he says first half of quote makes no sense. If you're going to stand for an environment players what to be attracted to you can't trade away your attractive pieces. So basically anything short of a pipe dream is a no go

    Notice he wants to keep AD and when in Cleveland he never traded away a #1 pick nor any of his Top Players. He's just talking the big talk because that's the impression he wants to give off as an owner. I saw him on NBATV a lot prior to becoming a GM, trust he likes the challenge of keeping AD

    A side story online is that several sources feel that Memphis getting the #2 pick will increase chances of Mike Conley getting traded. Memphis shopped him before the trade deadline. “Experts” can always be wrong but almost everyone is saying Memphis will go with Ja Morant at #2.

    A lot can happen in a month, but still seems most likely that RJ Barrett is there for us at #3 and not Ja Morant.

    Looks like the Pels getting Zion isn't changing AD's mind about staying in NO. Pels are in a great spot to rebuild their roster with that Zion pick, Lakers and Celts are still the front runners to land AD. Knicks have no chance with that 3rd pick to get AD.

    Not sure the Lakers and Celtics have assets that get the deal done either if you think that #3 pick this year after signing, MRob, additional matching contracts, and 2 future 1st round picks equate to “no chance”.

    Yeah I'm not thinking about our trade possibilities #3 ruined any chance, it's really quite simple

    I think you’re right about the “at all costs”. Makes me wonder what we would have done if we ended up 4th or 5th. Tried to trade up to get Barrett? Glad we don’t ever need to find out.

    I’m still in the camp that Pelicans will eventually need to trade AD for something. He’s not staying there. Zion is already planning on how soon he can leave I bet.

    AD will force a trade. Dude wore a “That’s All Folks” shirt the last game of the season. He is going somewhere and we will likely be one of a very few teams willing to risk multiple 1st round picks on an expiring contract.

    Zion looked disappointed in the interview afterwards and said it ain’t over until the pick is made. He doesn’t want to be in NO anymore than AD. Why go from the south to the Deep South. NO hasn’t rebuilt since Katerina. Its one thing to be Drew Brees in NO and you brought a Super Bowl. It’s a whole different deal to be young and black with a little $$$ in Deep South.

    Didn’t realize KP probably broke his hand in that bar fight overseas.

    Tonight guaranteed we get an unprotected Dallas 1st round pick in 2021. Not bad for a bar fighting, alleged rapist who is now recovering from 2 injuries. Too bad the 2023 pick is top 10 protected.

    Ja is from South Carolina. RJ is from Canada. Makes much more sense to draft the southern kid and flip Conley for assets. That’s the smart move, with everything relatively equal.

    Hey, we beat the odds and got a top 3 pick. RJ or Ja or major trade asset!

    You're Griffin these are the offers you get from the Celts and Lakers. Celts Brown, Tatum, Smart, 14th pick or Lakers Ball, Ingram, Kuzma, 4th pick. Knicks offer would be a joke.

    Only had a 27% percent of top 2. A month from now, if we land Barrett, it won’t matter. This front office is aggressive. Hopefully, won’t be caught off guard on draft night.
