    Doncic said he sees himself as a PG and is really happy when he plays that position.

    Do we want to draft a player and put him at SF where he probably won't play as well, and surely won't be as happy? Doubtful.

    So... if you draft doncic, are you forced to trade fox? Just curious... I'm leaning to doncic with MPJ still an injury concern. But I'm not sure what the next step would be. If wecdraft him as a point forward, I'd guess that a great match would be to trade for CJ McCollum, or a similar type PG. someone who can play PG, but is more of a shooter. Had we picked DSJ last year, like I preferred, then I think doncic would have been a better fit.

    Anyway, doncic fans- if we draft doncic, do we keep fox?

    No need to trade Fox. Position-less basketball is the name of the game.

    Doncic worked well with Dragic for team Slovenia taking turns playing with and without the ball. It'll work fine.

Also his speed is not up to par with NBA players, also he just over all isn't NBA athletic. All those things worry me. Why don't we see 5'3" point guards in the NBA? Are there none good at basketball, or their hight make them not serviceable in the league?
    So the questions for me are;

    Can he create space in the NBA like be did over seas?

    Is he strong enough? I think this is the easiest to remedy if not.

    Will he beable to guard any position in the NBA?

    Also he has to work on his shooting.
    Those are valid questions, but the questions for Porter, or should I say the question is...

    Can he play?

    The kid hurts his back, his hip, who knows what else. How do you get hurt after the season when all you're doing now is work outs? Meanwhile Doncic is STILL playing high level games.

    Hope you're right, but that's not necessarily a great example. Dragic is more of a shooting guard than fox. And is older than doncic, so he probably has the age respect thing going. Not sure a timeshare of the PG duties would be ok with fox and doncic.

    I think the biggest issue is will each player be happy, or will conflict arise. Harden and Paul played together successfully- but were ok splitting ball time. Side note:Paul did have his lowest assist numbers since his rookie year.
