    That's fine. We'll get disabled player exception.

    I saw a pic on twitter yesterday where someone superimposed Deng's billboard on Staples like #stayDwight but hashtagged it #GoBacktoSudan...I can't stop laughing, for the life of me I can no longer find it to post it here.

    Thoughts on Jontay Porter? @therealdeal .....another skilled stretch 4/5....if lopez isnt retained, id take Porter with this clev picks, looks alot more skilled/coordinated than Bryant.

    I'll have to take a look. Thanks for the heads up. I've been falling behind on the draft picks.

    If we keep this pick, thoughts on reuniting Aaron Holiday with Lonzo Ball? Too short?

    I like Landry Shamet in that area right now. Shifty kid. Chandler Hutchinson, Jontay Porter, Kyri Thomas all sound great. Troy Brown could fall around there.

    I keep thinking about Daniel Gafford. He doesn't quite profile as a perfect fit in this offense (can't shoot, not offensively skilled), but he really reminds me of a young Gobert. All limbs, great athleticism, good defensive instincts.

    The big reason I say no to Holiday in that slot is his size. We emphasis all that switchability, we need a guy who can handle that.

    Chandler Hutchinson is the guy I would like the most. Reminds me a ton of Kuzma.

    Assuming the Lakers keep the Cavs 1st rounder this summer (can’t package to dump Deng), would any of you use it on Grayson Allen?

    He has the size and skill set to what we are trying to do (positionless basketball - can guard SG, SF, PF; good passer for his position; can hit the 3).

    Dear Lord no. Not only do I find that kid pretty detestable, but he's not very good and certainly I'm not taking him with a mid 1st round pick. He's an end of the 1st/ early 2nd type of player. Maybe exclusively 2nd round player.

    Oh hell no. Screw that dirty little tantrum throwing punk. Habitual tripper, habitual line-stepper, I’m surprised someone hasn’t slapped the s*** out of him in a game yet, just hell no.
