    Yeah you don't trade Zach Lavine for a 4th pick in a 3 man draft. Even if there are potential studs like Culver at 4. Lavine was actually extremely good to close out the season last year. I usually look at a young players last couple months of a season to help me determine how they might look the following year in fantasy, and that method has worked wonders for me.

    Lavine's February:

    24.5 PPG
    5.8 APG
    5.4 RPG
    9.1 FGM
    2.4 3PM
    3.9 FTM
    53.2 FG%
    49.0 3P%
    83.0 FT%

    Lavine's March:

    28.9 PPG
    4.6 APG
    5.3 RPG
    9.3 FGM
    2.3 3PM
    6.1 FTM
    47.1 FG%
    40.9 3P%
    71.0 FT%

    He was an elite offensive player at 24 years old! He's just about to enter his athletic prime. You better get a proven star if you are trading that kind of upside. You don't trade that for a prospect that isn't even projected at the top of his draft class.

    I wouldnt even trade Lavine for Morant. We have him relatively cheap for the next 3 seasons as hes about to enter his prime. Unless were getting a superstar back in a trade package, hes untouchable otherwise.

    Most guys on here know how much I love Lavine. Hes a Dawg man. Hes the last guy on this team Id like to trade. Even though hes a one-way player. He has an elite skill set. I want Zach apart of this team. He loves the spotlight and want to be great.

    I mean, I might think of it in that scenario if Culver was going to be there at 7. That'd be an amazing core on rookie contracts for a long time. Morant/Culver/Porter/Lauri/Wendell.

    I would trade him for Morant/Zion or in a package for a superstar. Nothing else.

    We saw in the games against the Rockets, Sixers, Hawks that hes developing a killer instinct that only the greats possess. You dont just trade that away for a draft pick (unless its Zion).

    I kind of agree. We had a very incomplete team most of last season. 75% without a decent SF, 75% of the season with only 1 true veteran leader, and zero depth. We have a chance to surround Lavine and Lauri with multiple veterans and another top 7 pick to pair with Wendell. Things will be a lot different this year with the right additions. Give me Thad, Bev, draft Culver, sign Rolo with the MLE and hopefully a half way decent role player at 38 with what we have. Thats a very deep team with a lot of complimentary pieces. Id have fun watching that team

    Id be cool with Hunter too, but in that scenario, sign a SG rather than Thad

    I'd trade Lavine if they add Zo and Kuz to it and take Dunn. That would give us close to a max slot.

    Am i the only one who would consider a #7 and felecio for mike Conley. I know it feels steep but lets be honest them eating Felecio is worth something on their end too.

    I just know I don't trust the other options at #7 much more. Culver I like but he screams 6th man and a Tyreek evans esk guy to me which is fine but we need more. White is similar where I think his best role is more of a Lou williams esk role where he is more of a 6th man and scorer but can play some point. Hunter Screams role player to me and I am not so interested. And Redish feels boom or bust and while some like that for obvious reasons. Can we really risk a bust. (I tend to worry more than some of you about his lack of college production on court andpoor shooting %)

    The only guy I feel comfortable with both floor and ceiling is Garland. Who I think at worst is a scoring bench guard which has some value. And ceiling is a top flight PG. And lets be real that he likely wont be there.

    Other options seem to be Lonzo. And I hate that route even more than conley somehow.

    But what do i know right.

    Hypothetical. If the Pelicans trade for Lonzo Ingram and #4. Would you trade #7 and maybe a future pick to move up to 4 and get Garland. They pelicans clearly would not need a PG and perhaps their bigest need of a big man would be quite a reach for them there.

    Again looking at some of the other options I know i have Garland much higher than White or Lonzo.

    I dont hate the Conley route, but I dont think hes worth 7. Maybe a 3 team trade:

    Bulls get Conley
    Blazers get Dunn and Valentine
    Memphis gets Evan Turner, Felicio, Blazers 1st, and a future top 10 protected from us.

    Memphis will be in straight rebuild mode so they can afford to take on a couple big 1 year deals. Getting 2 1sts for a 32 year old is also as good as you can get there, so eating those salaries wont kill them.

    Portland would be dumping 18 million, getting a contrasting guard off the bench on a 1 year rookie deal, and clearing some room to add a player to help Lillard and CJ.

    We give up a PG that didnt work for us, shed a Felicio, and adding Conley should put that 1st between 15-20 so I think its worth it.
