Crazy that NOP got the No.1 pick. I'm happy for them though as they faced the prospect of losing a superstar. They have seemed to gain one.

AD still wants out though and I think he ends up in New York. Can see some kind of package of Knox, pick number 3 and DSJ??

Kyrie and KD sign with the Knicks and AD joins.

Pelicans get Zion, Barret with the 3rd pick and decent players around then in Knox and DSJ. Still... that's not enough for AD so probably won't happen.

No chance of that. Go back to Duke... get hurt. Or take the fat NBA contract. Zero chance he goes back to college and risks losing millions of dollars.
Yeah, no chance at all of that happening. There is a better chance of NO drafting Zion and then trading him for a haul - not similar to how Charlotte drafted Kobe Bryant and then traded him for Vlad Divac - drafting/trading Zion would require something massive.

Do teams have the picks/young talent for Zion? Probably not when Zion is talked up as being the best number 1 pick since LeBron James. He will be a NO player for the next several years. And that is fair. He chose Basketball as his sport of choice, became super good at it and now will get drafted by the team lucky enough to win the lottery. You can’t choose who you go to in the draft.

Who will the pelicans take with pick 3?

Could be a win win for both sides. AD wanted out and now they can build around Zion, pick 3, Ingram and who knows Lonzo with a chip on his shoulder might be better than we think

It's not pick 3. It's pick 4 in a draft with only three good guys. So 4 is basically useless.

Money is a problem. Kemba will have to come on less money and not many players will do that.
He said he would to stay at Charlotte. Durant did it to chase a title. Wouldn’t be surprising
