On the bright side the top 10 is pretty even. Average, but even.
I'm glad we won't be pressured into Lamelo now. I'm hoping Haliburton gets to us.
The NBAMath podcast I just listened to and the guy being interviewed was against this guy a fair bit. Rated Kira Lewis Jr much higher than Haliburton.

Haliburton's jump shot looks disgusting, but it seems to go in.

We'd be saying the same thing about LaMelo's too except that it doesn't go in though like you say.

I like the look of Kira Lewis jr as well but I worry about players who rely so heavily on their athletic ability. His speed is off the charts but I think he'll struggle at the rim a NBA level. Dennis Smith is a good example, he gets himself out of shape & his production drops off a cliff. Lewis would light the garden up though I agree.

I think Haliburton will complement RJ & Robinson nicely. His vision & basketball IQ are nuts and he's probably got the most efficient jumper (Despite how gross it looks) out of all the the top tier guards in the draft. I think you'd need to fill the F & PF positions with shooters for him to be most effective.

Honestly the only way I see us coming out winners in this draft is if we somehow land Toppin which won't happen at our current pick. A core of RJ, Toppin & Robinson is a good start. If we got that I'd try & sign VanVleet & somebody like Gallo to round out the starting 5.

Is Lemalo actually worth trading up for?
Is he a franchise player?
I don’t think so.
I think we should just keep our current picks if not trade back for an extra top 20 pick

I don’t think he is. I honestly don’t see any franchise players in this draft.

The only player I’d trade up for is Toppin as I think he’s as good fit next to Robinson.

If not, take the picks to the draft & select shooters.
