Now that the lottery has been won and done I thought it would be pertinent to keep all the draft discussion in one place.

Boston, Phoenix, Denver and Philly have a huge chunk of the picks with Boston having 3 firsts and Philly 2. Boston also have 5 seconds. The Suns have 3 firsts and a second, and Denver have 3 firsts as well

Most of the local interest will be around Ben Simmons and to a lesser extent Thon Maker.

Boston meanwhile have the first real decision to make, shall they be the Mother of Dragons (Bender)... what a sh*t pun

Hoping Boston and Phoenix highly rate someone else and let Bender slip to 5. Otherwise, all in for Jamal Murray. Not sure I like the rest eg Brown, Dunn, Hield etc.

Dunn's management have sent out the word that he doesn't want to be headed to Boston or Phoenix due to their guard stocks.

He's the best pure PG in this draft and would be a good pick up for the Wolves imo.

Ainge is a fan of Bender apparently.

After Pork Zinger tall white guys stocks have improved.
I'm intrigued by the potential of Jamal Murray. Maybe lacks the eye catchy athleticism that these teams seem to lose their sh*t over. Feels like he could contribute to a team straight away with some of the traits I see. Being so young and having that sort of statistical season is impressive. Hield was a late bloomer by comparison.

Wouldn't fit as well as Bender would at PF, or Murray as a combo guard. Problem with PG is that we already have Ricky who is awesome, and whilst there's a need for a backup PG, another rookie/developing PG to compete with Tyus Jones and reliant on those two to back up isn't really the answer, so I hope we don't select him.

Based on the players Wolves' have done private workouts with there's a lot of speculation that they're going to try and trade the pick and move down in the draft, whilst hopefully acquiring decent experienced player or Vet.

Any particular reason?

I've not seen much of him
Is young but has a very light frame. Doesn't excel at any one thing and is weak in a few areas.

Seems any 7 footer who can shoot a 3 is rated these days.

Might have potential but also has big bust potential as well. Not something I'd want to spend a 3 pick on.
