    That's one of them things that is not always true. For instance, the Warriors supposedly had multiple trades offered or discussed for their 1st round picks this last year of real NBA talent but they...

    Confidence is critical for performance and consistency. Young players who have their confidence broken may never come back. It's a tough balancing act.

    Good teams get value out of late first round picks too. Good scouting and good player development and luck. Of course it's not likely to get you a game changing player ... but it COULD.

    I don't think it's reasonable to say Rodman is unskilled. He had 2 elite skills and other rare talents.

    Slipping screens is part of the offense sometimes, but I agree that setting good picks,...

    If he played now the way he did then he'd be suspended and fined out of the league. I loved his dirty play I must say, particularly on Ewing because he whined about it so much.

    Generally speaking a known quality NBA player is more valuable than a last 3rd of the first pick, but as you go up the perceived value goes up too. I think Thybulle is worth more than a 10-30 pick,...

    Yeah ... I don't think it will, but if this goes to the end of his contract he leaves with nothing coming back. I wonder at what point Simmons offers a buyout just so he can leave.

    I thought it was more than that, but okay.

    Still, 249 pages in nothing has really changed. Either Morey gets his dream offer, lowers his demands, or we wait ... thus far it's "we wait".

    Taking in a sign and trade is brutal and will hamstring the team and essentially waste another year requiring the roster be filled with super cheap non-guaranteed players because of the hard cap.
