    What are people thinking for the draft? Alex Sarr was a consensus #1 a month ago, but then everyone realized #1 this season is like #10 in other drafts and it seems like teams are cycling through names because they don't really like any of them. Sounds like this could be an anything goes draft. Is there anyone you like to become an all-star out of this group?

    Interesting to make the draft 2 nights now...

    I don't envy the Hawks...of all the years to get the #1 pick...I did hear the Spurs are trying to move up and could swap out with ATL and get a pick they dealt them back in the process.
    If you have a losing record at Reds games, please stop going.

    Per longtime NBA insider Marc Stein, league insiders “still project” the Cavs to hire James Borrego as the team’s new head coach:

    This spring’s coaching carousel has been full of twists, turns and curveballs, so declarations of any sort have been tricky lately, but as of publication time this afternoon most league insiders consulted are still projecting the Lakers to hire JJ Redick and the Cavaliers to hire James Borrego.

    If those teams make their hires this week, as expected, Detroit would have the league’s only head coaching vacancy.
    Though I did hear today the Pistons like Borrego as well.

    Any chance Steve Nash (94-67 with the Nets) emerges for one of these jobs?

    Redick officially hired by the Lakers.

    If it wasn't for the Oakland game I would have liked to have seen Reed Sheppard taken by the Hawks. Think he could be at best a Steve Nash or at worst a JJ Redick/Kyle Korver. Think he falls to 4 and is paired with Wemby in San Antonio.

    You have to think Thursday night is going to be Bronny watch.

    Simmons and Russillo were saying that they're hearing Bronny might be in play in the 1st round, because his dad is pulling the strings. Keep an eye on Philly at #16 and Cleveland with the #20 pick.

    The Rockets seem to be offering the #3 pick in the draft, while ATL hasn't determined who they want, yet (or what to do with Murray/Young, which should be a no-brainer from an outsider, but it isn't for them being too close to the situation...truly having a difficult time with self-evaluation).

    Bill Simmons suggested that BOS take Bronny at 30 and trade him to LA. I remember reading Bill Veeck did something similar to an owner's GM's son in law.

    He seems like the kind of guy who in the past would have spent four years in college and really benefitted from it (like Redick). I just don't buy he's got enough to offset his lack of size. Doesn't mean he can't play at all, but maybe he's Payton Pritchard. I get that in this draft he'll go fairly high and that he stands to make tens of millions because of it. I don't blame anyone for taking that kind of money. He just seems like a player who needs to be a more finished product.

    Will be interesting to see if anyone wants to move up. Hard to see star potential in any of these guys. For instance, Cody Williams seems like a guy who might bring a lot to the table (size, good passer, great athleticism, high motor), but I'd want him at good value rather than burn assets to get him.

    NBA 2024-2025: Celtic Pride

    Bulls trading Caruso to OKC for Giddey.

    That came out of nowhere.



    My pre draft overall take: With so little projected high-end talent available, if there ever were a time to eschew ceiling for need for teams in win-now mode I am looking at you, Philly and Milwaukee this may be the draft to do so.

    OK, I found the reference. Senators owner Clark Griffith hated Veeck. Thought he was a disgrace to the game. When Veeck owned CLE he had tried to get Early Wynn from the Senators for a while but was always rebuffed by Griffith. Griffith's son in law, Joe Haynes pitched for the White Sox. Veeck picked up Haynes cheap because he was going to get an operation on his arm. He was sure that Griffith could not live with the thought that his son in law was working for Veeck and may possibly be participating in some of Veeck's stunts. So Veeck called Griffith and said that he had Haynes and Griffith had Wynn and what did he want to do about it. So Wynn and Mickey Vernon were traded to CLE for Haynes, Eddie Robinson and Ed Klieman. ��
