    Re: Draft Day Thread! Let the Fireworks Begin!!

    Since Syracuse, Duke and Virginia were the three strongest teams in the ACC last season, it's easy to forget that ACC player of the year honors didn't go to Tyler Ennis, Jabari Parker or Joe Harris. Instead, N.C. State forward T.J. Warren captured that award, making the transition from complementary scorer to go-to threat look absurdly easy. Warren led the ACC in scoring at 24.3 points per game and shot a league-best 53.2 percent from the field. He also closed the regular season with a pair of 40-plus-point outbursts against Pittsburgh and Boston College, becoming the first ACC player to put up back-to-back 40-point games since the 1956-57 season. Warren isn't a great long-range shooter and he's just an average defender, but the crafty 6-foot-8 forward should remain a formidable scorer at the NBA level because of his mid-range game and ability to score in the paint.

    I'm feeling #17 is a C like Nurkic or trade back. It only makes sense.

    @WojYahooNBA: In the Saric-Payton Jr., deal, Sixers also get back the first-round pick sent to Magic in Dwight Howard deal -- likely 2017, source said.

    Smart 6'3" and Bradley 6'2" ????

     

     



    Which is bigger, Rondo 6-1 and AB 6-2 or Smart 6-3 and AB 6-2?

     

     

    I didn't say the Celts backcourt is big.

     

    What I said was it's not so small anymore.

     

    Pay attention!



    Still small but not as small

    True.

    That's why the next step is to find a bigger starting SG so that AB can move to 6th man.



    James Young?

    Picking Smart gives Danny the upper hand in the AB negotiations.  He now can let him walk if the price is too high. Keeping AB and Smart and Rondo gives them a steady 3 guard rotation.
