    Did the Knicks really just draft a power forward?
    i think their charter requires they carry at least 8

    Bassey looked pretty good against WVU's bigs....Oscar and Culver if I recall

    I'm looking for Wieskamp to be a nice pick somewhere around here.

    Massively underrated as an athlete and, IMO, the best shooter in the draft.

    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.
    Between Sharpe and Massey - who was mocked as a late 1st round pick by many - it will be interesting to see who's the better NBA big man moving forward. As for the Suns/Nets trade, I'm not particularly fond of it from the Phoenix point of view. I'm just not as high on Shamet as most.

    . And Carter - a bulldog on defense - as a 'throw-in' could make a larger contribution than expected, as both he and Bruce Brown (if he's retained) can defend and neither need the ball. Both qualities this Nets team can sorely use.

    If Indiana could stay healthy, they might take a couple of leaps forward.
    Brisset and/or Stanley may also be keepers.

    But the division itself, should be tougher than last season. Low bar, I know.

    New York gets Rokas Jokubaitis, which sounds like a disease you get on Times Square.

    Jason Preston to the Clippers may be an absolute steal and just what the Dr. ordered.

    Like JT Thor for Detroit.

    He could well be good if he develops at all. Worthy gamble this late.

    Lakers could use him if they could get a pick

    Lue doesn't play rookies either.

    Next season, maybe he'll scratch the floor a bit.

    Ayo Dosunmu to Chicago could not work out any better.

    I even like the fit with the team.

    He's going to Charlotte along with Plumlee. So he adds to their collection of young bigs with tremendous potential. IMHO, and I may be crazy, Nick Richards has a higher ceiling than Vernon Carey Jr.

    Detroit will pick 57 via Charlotte.

    Thor as a backup for PJ Washington (and a G League guy) also makes sense.

    Charlotte's killing it.
