Also sounded like Saric would only come to NBA if Celtics or Lakers draft him according to his handler's. So be risky for us to reach for him. But if we take Parker then no need for Saric.
I don't see the point of getting Knight if they still have Thomas. I don't see anyone giving out big money for him, so they will probably resign him.
Thomas could get a Teague or Jennings offer easily. Knight will be in that boat soon enough. Plus where letting him pad his stats on a losing team. Time Knight is RFA he be scoring well over 20 easy by then. Also horrible east Knight could slip into All Star game. Heck look when DeRozan got that huge contract. Looked like a huge mistake. Probably still is. Since easts sucks and lacking guards. He got a free pass into All Star game with over 20 points and easy wins in the east.
You said the Kings had interest in Brandon Knight for the 8th pick, would that interest extend to Larry Sanders, considering he would be a perfect fit next to Big Cuz.
Yes. The need a rim protector and Sanders is available. I think if they give up Knight and Sanders they'll want more than just the 8th pick. But the Kings have enough assets to throw another player the Bucks way. Would be a good deal for both teams -- especially if the Bucks could get Ben McLemore as well. They need young players they can build around. The Bucks will be active in trying to move up and get another pick and the Kings have been among the most active in trying to add a few vets to turn this team into a playoff contender next year. Sanders and Knight would probably do it.
No way I do Knight, Sanders for McLemore and #8. Who do we play at the 5? Henson? Embiid will probably end up being the #1 pick. Then we end up with a lineup like
No point in that deal IMO
I will guess Vonleh, then Gordon.
Some people talk about McDermott, but he is risky.
Even though I wouldn't trade him even if #4 pick was on the table for Sanders. If we take Parker we need Sanders to protect the rim. Zaza is horrible defender. Henson is soft as well. We all label Henson a center cause he has no outside game. Just has that baby hook shot. Farther out he plays is like when we first drafted Moute. Moute was elite defender. But on offense he was putrid. Was like playing 4 versus 5. Ersan a lousy defender as well.
Knight,Giannis,McDermott,Parker,Sanders McDermott would cause a log jam at sf though. Play Giannis at pg? lol
Giannis,McDermott,Parker,Ersan,Sanders That be kinda exciting. Even if a fast pg got by Giannis he can still swat the shot from behind. lol McDermott be to slow at sg though. Wishful thinking. I do like McDermott as a shooter though off of the bench. Guess I have to check out youtube to see who is worthy at #8.
Stauskas has nice three ball.
Saric seems decent as well, long as his handlers change their minds about Lakers or Celtics only.
Damn Mcbuckets perfected the one leg lean off fade away Dirk jumper.
Damn more I check youtube the more I like each of these guys. But then again we did the same thing picking between Parker,Wiggins,Embiid,Exum,Smart in Bucks preseason.
I was worried he be only a flashy dunker. But he can drain the three ball with ease with a hand in his face.

Talked to two GM's today that couldn't believe how out of shape Vonleh was at workouts. They were really annoyed.

For me the only guy I think I might like in that group is Vonleh. I think the divide is Embiid, Exum, Wiggins and Parker are the top 4. I think the next four are Smart, Gordon, Vonleh and Randle in some order. I don't forsee anyone really jumping those guys, so basically we're looking at one of those guys on the board at 8. My guess is that it might be Gordon, who I'm not in love with, especially with Giannis already in the mix. Vonleh being out of shape is stupid by him, so maybe he would fall. I think I like him.
Personally, I'm not sure I like any of those guys over Knight. I would probably rather keep Knight, and then maybe look to move other pieces to get a later pick. I like Payton, but probably not at 8 for Knight. If we could grab a pick later in the draft, maybe mid teens to take Payton, I'd be more willing to do that.
