    Man Elfrid Payton looks like the best PG left on the market lol.

    Randle/Obi/Mitch has potential to be a really bad situation if we don't get better backcourt play to make it work and also dump Randle for more spacing. It looks like Josh Smith, Greg Monroe, and Andre Drummond circa 2015 right now. That is compounded by the lack of competent PG play.

    Long story short, young guys featured or not, this will be very ugly if we don't make a few moves even if they are Burks level move for the right guys. RJ and Toppin won't thrive if we don't get some guys that fit around them and don't get rid of Randle.
    You realize theyíre not gonna play Obi/Randle/Mitch together like the Josh Smith example you mentioned right?

    Or youíre just concerned about Randleís attitude if they have him coming off the bench? That I am worried about, Iím sure heíll make a stink over it.

    This is why I wanted cp3 because even if your rebuilding cp3 helps the growth of young players faster then guys like teague augustin dunn rozier.

    The Hawks are going to be very interesting

    No. That's why this draft was baffling and this FO is really no better than some of the previous regimes.

    We could have drafted 2 PG's and a Shooter in this draft and kept Mitch as well as our other recent picks. Instead, we drafted a PF we didn't need and we already had Randle who is both young and productive and on a good contract... Obi may be a great player, but he wasn't what we needed or should have drafted.

    Hell, if the point was to tank another season, we should have traded down and would have still picked up quality picks + some.

    The available pgs are so bad and OKC and Pels have taken all the decent ones on the market.

    This post is actually ignorant. You might not like the roster but we have:

    Young PG - Frank
    Young combo guard - Quickly
    Young wing - RJ
    Young combo forward - Knox
    Young PF - Obi
    Young C - Mitchell

    We actually do have roster balance.

    Tank for Cade 6Ē8 PG and then with the Dallas picks we could have a bright future just one more year to see

    What 2 pgs in the draft were available to us that were sure things?

    I want to draft a real pg as much as anyone, but none of these dudes were a sure thing.

    Quickly was a Mid/Late second-round pick on most draft boards, we reached and passed up a lot of better players who won't get that much burn in the league anytime soon. Not sure why folks think he's going to contribute.
