I want Jackson, Smith, Ball, or Fultz

One of those and I'm happy!

They're all talented. I think Jackson presents the most interesting dynamic. Just his size, length and athleticism with the group we already have.

Ball similarly has that interest though he's more a pg but that's fine since Russell is 6-5 and can play off ball ;)

I like Dennis Smith and what he can do on the offensive end, but his height and his short wingspan limits his defensive potential.

Don't want to imagine a Dlo/Smith back court. I mean it's nice on the offensive end ; not so much on the other end

I watched the USC/UCLA game and I wasn't overly impressed w Ball although he remains high on my wish list.

LACAS I agree he had a bad game let's see when they meet. Alford recruits better than coaches, where was the D?

What position are we attempting to fill? Where are we the weakest? Or do we draft someone that someone else needs in order to trade for a very good Vet?

Sure if that's all it took. I don't think Butler is worth a package of our young players for the what would be leftover to ball with.

Im not sure the problem has been the picks (Randle, Russ, Nance, BI and Zu) as it has been the cast (Moz, Deng, Huertas, Calderon..) we have put to support & enhance them.

So you are happy with the Moz and Deng contract? If it was the same situation would you be cool with giving out those ridiculous contract. I didn't mind them at first but they have both been underwhelming

They are role players who are placeholders until the kids mature

The bench had been solid a bright spot in this dismal season.
