    If his history is any indication, as many as he can get.

    Brooklyn's team reminds me of one of those make-it, take-it teams on the playground. Each guy gets the ball at the top of the key and tries to score on his man.

    I cannot wait to see Cam Thomas get the ball with the choice between a bad shot and passing to any one of an open KD, Harden or Kyrie. He's taking the bad shot every time.
    Now begins the winter of our discombobulation.

    I'm thinking Turner's actually going to get dealt...?

    Who knows?

    In addition to protecting the rim, Jackson is capable of defending on the perimeter, which isn't exactly a strength of the current Pacers bigs. Jackson may actually fit well alongside Turner. And, as BZ pointed out, the Pacers are rarely healthy anyway.

    I'm here for Harden and Kyrie taking him under their wing to convince him to pass it to them, so they can take the same bad shot he was going to take.

    Really like their addition of Duarte and the fit of Jackson as a fourth big/ G League backup (for a year).

    In true Doc fashion, Philly takes yet another combo guard who won't play unless literally every veteran is hobbled by injury, massive slump, or Covid.

    Springer's addition is interesting in the now-they-can-trade-Simmons camp, I guess.

    Like the Sharpe pick for Brooklyn. They won't need him to be anything other than what he is-- and he could be pretty good if he develops.

    Nice bit of draftmanship by Sean Marks and Steve Nash, getting a BPA in Thomas plus the big they needed a bit later (not to mention the rights to backup PG Jevon Carter). Thomas takes over Shamet's instant offense job, Sharpe could play relatively big minutes at center, and Carter gives them needed quality depth.

    broke my heart that Jevon never got to a Final 4....but decent odds he will get to his 2nd straight NBA Finals

    Personally, I may have taken Bassey over Sharpe

    Pacers Nation, though they're kinda nervous about a potential Turner deal, seems pleased. The consensus, with Holiday gone: So long, McBuckets and welcome back, TJ McConnell.

    Four wings-- LeVert, Lamb, Warren, and Duarte-- plus Brogdon and McConnell? Add Sabonis. And Turner. (Maybe.)

    If Indiana could stay healthy, they might take a couple of leaps forward.

    I see their thinking. Bassey just hasn't played enough good bigs to determine if he's too slow to guard them. (He's not, IMO.)

    Did the Knicks really just draft a power forward?

    I can definitely see Deuce going to OKC at 34 or 36....or the Pels at 35.....all would be nice spots for him to land. Would love to see him in NO with Ingram and Zion
