    Teague is a player with good reputation around the league and an expiring. Tyus in a sign and trade? Saric. RoCo I would hope not. Okogie showed good things.

    I am more interested in what assets we can get moving down from 11 to the late teens. For example, 11th pick for 14th and 22 from Boston(probably not realistic), but I think that 11th to Brooklyn for 17th and 27th may be a real possibility. We need a lot of help and this draft is about top heavy and about as "flat"(as Rosas said) all the way into the 2nd round as I can remember in a long time. There will be plenty to chose from at 17: Langford, Clarke, Alexander-Walker(my person prefernece), Little, Herro should all be decent pros. There should also be some nice players available at 27(Thybulle, Fernando, etc). This is a deep draft and we desperately need some more baskets for our eggs.

    a) their - stands for "belonging to them"
    b) there - means "over there" as in location
    c) they're - short for "they are"

    On the other hand you can't get into a bidding war with Brooklyn. Especially if you factor that 2 stars that are about to become FAs are long term injured.
    And they (Brooklyn) know that. It's all totally dependent on whether they get Irving. It's sort of hard to determine an RFA's value - because his value is whatever he gets offered. It's pretty unlikely though, how often do we see a S&T? I honestly can't remember the last one.

    Not sure it is deep but beyond Zion and Ja don't see much star power.... do believe your strategy is solid though. Better to have a couple good shots at talent vs one considering where we are at. All depends on a team wanting our pick and willing to move on it. This should be interesting.

    Covington and 11 to move to 4. Would anyone do this trade? Without Covington, we're not good on D, but he's also coming from injury too.

    I just posted it in the draft thread, and thought it was steep. Did a little research on Garland and I am a complete 180 on that take. I would say this:
    If you are 80% confident that you can work something out to sign Russel(and you have inside info that the Nets will not retain him) - you don't need to move up. However, if he is there(the Knicks might snipe him), if you feel like Garland's health will hold up and you feel that Okogie has shown enough to become a similar type of contributor to RoCo in a year or two, it's kind of a no-brainer. Garland screams prototypical modern high end PG to me as his upside(Lillard, Kyrie, Curry). I am always weary of players coming in with knee issues into the draft, but it's not like RoCo will ever give you 82 games either. I guess if Rosas thinks of moving up in the draft, Garland is exactly the type of player I would want, high risk-ish, but immense upside.

    probably. RoCo has a great contract right now, but we will feature him as an offensive role of importance too, which almost negates his defense. He sucks offensively, and he WILL want to get paid soon. RoCo is a glue guy, not a franchise guy. But you better his on pick #4 if you trade a legit starting wing defender away..

    Garland needs to be the target. He has that Lillard type of game, though so did Mo Williams so....

    If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.

    I'm sold on Garland. If RoCo and 11 can grab him, I'm all in. It'll depend on Knicks. Also heard that Bulls are offering the 7 and Lavine for 4? If so, we might be out of luck.

    That would be absolutely stupid on their part. You throw in an established All-Star caliber player to move up 3 spots? That has too be utter rubbish put out there to increase the value of the #4 pick. If that's the price, either the Bulls can have that pick or the Pels can keep that pick. That is insane.

    If they are intent on moving Lavine I'd trade our number 11 and Teague for him. Give a bit of a salary dump to the bulls.

    I'd throw in Saric and RoCo if need be, lol. Then sign Rubio to play PG.
