Default 2019 Off Season Moves

There's not much for moves that can be made. I've seen they are interested in Seth Curry and Derrick Rose. There's the 15 pick. It's a gamble but I would hope Sekou Doumbouya would drop to us. Could be a complete bust. Could be the best in the draft. It's a position of need big time though. Our management is terrible. Spend a ton of money for a mediocre team. I would try to move Griffin. He was incredible last season. Not necessary though. Let him go to a team that has a chance to compete. Get some draft picks. Rebuild the right way this time. PG is a position that really needs an upgrade. Move Reggie. Try to get another pick.

So we have picks 15 and 30 now. I wonder if we can package both of those and try to move up a bit to get more of an impact player.

Really happy with our draft pick tonight. It's a boom or bust kind of thing. I don't have an expectation for next year. He's obviously a project. He has a very high ceiling though. And we've needed a wing for about a decade now lol. The last solid one we had was Tayshaun.... Obviously Stanley busted. As a lot of #8 picks do. The Pistons love to draft in that area though haha. If Doumbouya can play next to Dre and Griffin somehow that would be a very tough defensive front potentially. Luke steps up at SG and we somehow fix the PG position and that's a solid team.

Mate - absolutely stoked with Sekou slipping to us at 15 - how the heck did that happen? This kid, likely has one of the top 3 ceilings in the draft - his physical gifts could translate into anything -

Although his floor is quite low, too. He could be out of the league in 4 years time.

LOVED trading pick 30 for 4 x 2nd rounders and Cash - but hated trading to move up to 37 (costing us 2 x 2nd rounders) even though I like the "6'8 Kennard" clone.

I really like Bone, too. Explosive and smart. Has potential to develop into a backup PG

C: Dre / Maker
PF: Griff / Sekou
SF: Snell / Svi
SG: Kennard / Khyri
PG: Reggie / Brown

Obviously the above will change a bit between now and start of the season - I believe that we should be trying to develop Brown into a defensive stopper PG. I think that is where he can make the most impact in the NBA. I think we also need to give Khyri more minutes off the bench at the 2. Brown and Khyri are both staunch lock down defenders, could have a real identity off the bench. I am not sure where Svi is inn his development - but the kid can shoot lights out! Might still be a year away from getting minutes.

I think the big hole I can se - is not having a true "6th man". I think we need to bring someone in to play that role. Someone who can consistently get you 12 - 17 points each night. Sure Kennard can play that role right now if we want to, and put Brown back in as a starter - but I would love to explore Kennard's growth as a player with the starters and see if he can be better than a 6th man in this league (I think he can be).
