    The long wait for Jared Butler is finally over. But he landed in New Orleans - a great fit.

    Re: 2021 NBA Draft

    Butler and Wieskamp go back to back at 40 and 41.

    Hot take: Both players out-produce the first rounders the Pelicans (Zahaire Williams) and San Antonio (Josh Primo) drafted.

    Definitely.

    Conversely, that's sort of an odd trade for Detroit, even factoring in the increase in minutes for Stewart. I have to wonder what Troy Weaver (The Mad Scientist) has up his sleeve.

    Portland trades into the draft to pick Greg Brown, a carbon copy of Derrick Jones, a guy they already have-- and benched-- on the team.

    I think he's getting traded to Utah. Also a great fit.

    No Plumlees, no problems?

    Might even argue it's better.

    Brown's ceiling is higher than Jones Jr's. It's clearly a pick for the future.

    An absolute steal for the Jazz.

    I like Petrusev as a draft pick. Kid can score and apparently now has developed some consistent three-point range.

    The Adriatic League is no joke, and Petrusev dominated it.

    As Plumlee Lite (Heavy?), Garza can play behind Stewart and provide some help.

    I hope.

    He's fun to watch, honestly.

    Bassey to Philly too, apparently. With Embiid, Bassey, and Petrusev, Dwight Howard's short tenure with the Sixers is probably over.

    (I like the 76ers draft a lot.)

    maybe Dwight can go back to the Lakers....just looked at their roster, after the Westbrook trade, they will have 4 guys under contract next season....and I assume Gasol is still considering retiring. Then they have Alfonso McKinnie on a non-guaranteed deal. Sure they will bring back Caruso and THT....and maybe do something with Schroder's rights....but they are going to need a lot of cheap labor.

    I suspect it's over. He was basically unplayable in many playoff lineups.

    The 76ers were desperate for frontcourt bench production. A wild card in said search, who rarely gained NBA minutes last year: Paul Reed, should he develop as expected.

    Knicks pick Jericho Sims is a sneaky good choice. He has a real shot to stick with the team all season as a backup.

    I'm holding out hope that B-ball Paul can develop into a solid stretch-4. I agree that Dwight probably won't, and shouldn't, be back. The guy had some great games and moments backing up Embiid. But he also, too often, did incredibly dumb things at exactly the wrong time.
