    We donít have a ton of bigs anymore with Portis and Taj gone. We needed a backup C and Noel is solid, I like this move. Still mad about Payton though, **** Scott Perry.

    True, I guess I was thinking Ed Davis was the backup C. I definitely prefer Noel though.

    True, I completely forgot about Davis. I read on twitter that Davis was brought in more as a locker room guy than to get actual burn.

    I do think last year whenever Mitch would sit and Taj would play it was such a noticeable drop off in rim protection. Thibs should have fun with these two rim protectors for 48 mins. Now just trade Randle plz.

    Yeah ironically he and Mitch are extremely similar players.

    Looks like weíre gonna have 48 mins of Mitch every game even if he gets into foul trouble

    I like Noel but I thought we were good with Mitch and Davis. People are going to be surprised by how good Davis is IMO. Then you can go small sometimes with Obi at the 5. Iíd prefer a little more room for experimenting. On the other hand Noel could net us a pick if a contender really needs a big. He might look good in Boston

    how many PG's did we pass on in the draft?

    And we should have gone hard for Ball, GSW took Wiseman, they would have taken Mitch and #8 I think. Mitch & Haliburton is better than just Wiseman for them.

    I think the point was that you guys are so caught up in that one position (understandably so) that youíre willing to reach and overpay although that player ultimately isnít worth it.

    I wanted a pg as much as anyone but the pgs I wanted weren't in the right places for us to draft any of them. Its just how the draft fell.

    IMO the only nba rdy pgs were Ball, Flynn, and Pritchard. Ball should be solid right out then gate, I think Flynn is completely nba ready and will be an immediate leader on the raptors, Pritchard will be a huge liability on defense, but on the Celtics where they play good team ball, and can hide his liabilities a bit, I think he will thrive.

    I'm really excited to watch Pritchard and Flynn in the NBA.
