    Presumably, that 4th to 6th pick range is Hunter, Culver, and Garland as targets. Maybe Coby White?

    Draft order is now:
    1. Pelicans - Zion
    2. Memphis - Ja?
    3. Knicks - RJ?
    4. Atlanta - Hunter?
    5. Cleveland - no idea, probably not Garland with Sexton there. Culver I guess?
    6. Minnesota - Garland?

    We are safe, I think. Pelicans trading up to #2 to get RJ was the one thing that seemed possible to stop us from getting him.
    So the Pels traded down, I’d expect we may see a deal for a player with the picks the Pels acquired.

    These 3 seem etched in stone.

    1. ZION
    2. Ja
    3. RJ

    Atlanta has to be be picking a wing like Hunter at 4. Bilas has Coby White going at 5.

    RJ Barrett got a huge cheer from the Brooklyn crowd when introduced pre-draft, even bigger than Zion.

    No doubt to me that RJ joins the Knicks as their most hyped draft pick since Ewing.

    Spike Lee at the draft and welcoming RJ to the Knicks before the draft starts.

    I think you can go to the kitchen for the next 10 minutes to get a snack, the first 4 picks won't surprise.

    Pelicans take Zion Williamson #1 ending the least suspenseful decision in the history of mankind.

    Plain and simple, if Zion is anything less than a superstar in the NBA, fans will call him a disappointment.

    Zion seems like a super good guy. I’m rooting for him.

    Pels fans going ape despite losing Davis, happy for the city now we need RJ to be the next Kobe for the Knicks so Knicks fans can go ape.

    Zion overcome by emotion after getting drafted and unable to do the interview thanking his mother. Man wears his heart on his sleeve.

    Now all New Orleans sports fans can name at least 1 guy on the Pelicans.

    The kid is really emotional being picked one, don't think I remember a guy crying with joy after being picked.

    Ja Morant to Memphis at #2. Memphis is probably going to expect a lot from him from the jump after trading Conley. This guy is going to make all the players around him better on offense with his passing.

    The man loves his mother.

    Our draft needs, according to ESPN’s bottom line, are “Everything”.
