I voted for Wiseman at 2 and am voting for Okongwu at 3. 2 way big, can play PF and C, good rebounder, good defense and offense, I see him as an Adebayo clon, perhaps without the passing.

If 1 and 2 are Edwards and Wiseman, I voted too trade #3 to someone who wants Ball. If Edwards or Wiseman are still at #3, have to take them.

I'm always going to select 'trade' but, if we have 2 seconds left on the clock and nothing materializes ... I guess I'd take Donkey OKongwu

Wiseman is overrated.

He's not overrated in general, on here, yeah.

There's eggsperts saying he could be the #1 pick.  It's not just folks here overrating him.

Again, Give me Melo.  Although Okongwu or Hayes are okay here too.

Trade. If I'm forced to make the pick Haliburton or Toppin.

I'd take Ball and ransom him to DET or NYK since they need him desperately.

But who would you get from either of them for Melo?  More draft picks?  That's the only thing they can offer that I'd be remotely interested in.

Exactly.  Pit them against each other, sell his rights to the highest bidder.  We can net that and still get a guy we can use with their pick.

Ball to NYK would be a great story and would give them a marquee name they covet.  Same for DET.

I'd want Ball only if we didn't already have Trae.  Can't play them together imho.

Ya it’s a video game 🎮 :gamer4:dream of mine to have a Zeke/Magic backcourt but they both need the ball it seems. Boo 😒

Agreed. The idea in principal sounds great but they are both best WITH the ball. Melo can't play off ball, Trae is still learning how to. I think it'll limit there effectiveness as a tandem.

It's ok.  Ball could end up being a rich man's Livingston.  Actually, that's what I'm expecting.

Wow really? I think Lamelo is going to be a better all around player but that doesn’t mean more effective in wins.

 

Ya, the Knicks and Pistons are perfect 👌 for Lamelo. Stat wise at least he would blow up.

That's where I think he'll settle in.  A better version of Livingston.

ETA: 

Some Ball-to-Knick propaganda to whet your appetite ...

With Ball on the board and the Hawks set to pick, put in that call to DET and NYK.  See who blinks first, bro.
