    Barnes' "happy medium" comp: A cross between the Warriors version of Billy Owens - before injuries began to curtail his career - and Draymond Green.

    FWIW, there are whispers that Toronto will select Barnes. Anyone buying that?

    Anywhere from #20 to Atlanta (if they don't trade up) to early second round.

In two years, maybe they need to become a little more conservative with their swings, but I think this is the exact time to have pure freedom with big swings.
    Seems like a "let's be terrible forever" plan. What they ought to be doing is offering Toronto or Cleveland whatever it takes to get Suggs and then letting him run what hopefully evolves into a basketball team rather than a collection of guys with great vertical leaps.

    Michael Carter-Williams strikes me as a realistic comp for Scottie Barnes. MCW is a useful bench dude - defends multiple positions, distributes, rebounds well. It's just that his scoring ability is severely lacking. Sounds kind of like Barnes. Obviously Barnes is young enough to evolve into something better, but that's his current hoops genus.

    Russell Westbrook to the Lakers being discussed per Twitter reports, though not final

    I don't think it has to be politics. I've always thought that Lebron seemed like a tremendous individual but I cannot stand the way he plays the game with the flopping and crying.

    Re: 2021 NBA Draft

    So supposedly Golden State turned down Philadelphias offer of....

    Ben Simmons for Wiggins, Wiseman, #7, #14, and two future firsts

    I cannot tell you how hard I laughed when I read that. Even the article said Golden State took the offer as a joke.

    That's fascinating. That might work for both teams, though I would assume the Wiz are trading Beal too if they make that deal.

    Agreed. It had been talked about that Russ would have to go if Beal were traded but I feel like it's the same thing if Russ goes. Maybe we get a Beal to Golden State deal put together within the next 3-4 hours.

    Yeah, that's too much.

    That being said, I'd rather have Morey asking for that rather than accepting Jeff Hornacek, Tim Perry, and Andrew Lange for Simmons.

    The Sixers don't have to trade Simmons, so why in the world wouldn't a guy like Morey (if we can trust the rumor) start out asking for a ton?

    Cavs may have gotten a steal at #3 with Mobley.
