Be open-minded, please, or I'll throw my bizarre 4 team trade on ya!!
A lot of us like Rondo to LAL for Nash and #7 - let's start with that.
For the rest, we must "assume":
1. DA really wanted one of the top 4 (Embiid, Exum, Parker, Wiggins) and tried very hard to move up.
2. He wants a PG to replace "wee-devil man" (for you mel), and Exum and Smart are gone.
3. He thinks there are a lot of good players in this draft (as most people do)
so - we trade #6 to CHI for #16 and #19.
The draft goes - Embiid, Wiggins, Parker, Exum, Smart. CHI, at 6, should take Stauskas or McBuckets.
At 7 - we take Vonleh
at 16, we take LaVine
at 17, we take Warren - who DA is known to love
at 19 we take Payton - who I think will be very good!
Payton, Bradley, Green (for now) Sully and Vonleh
Pressey, LaVine, Wallace, Bass (for now) Oly
FA, Babb, Johnson, Warren, Fav
If not Vonleh, take Gordon
If not Warren, take Porzingis or Anderson.
Plan is to move Green and Bass.........somehow. Maybe next post!!

If no Bynum injury, no Gasol trade - last word!!
