How would you have handled the Flip picks
Quick side note. I think Flip stuck by his 50/50 motto and we got one good pick and one bad pick out of the deal.
The Dieng thing gives me hope that he's not completely incompetent. I'm hoping 14 fell in this weird position where they didn't love anyone at 14, had already traded down so they didn't want to move down again and decided to take a (massive) flier on Shabazz and hope his HS Hype pays off.
^that is probably the best case scenario to hope for
So now that we know how this all plays out. how would you have handled 14, 21, 26?
I think we all would have gone CJ at 9....so let's avoid that. That could make this thread boring in a hurry. 14, 21, 26 your thoughts? I ask cause I don't think there was a clear answer at 14 but I think there were a bunch of better options available
Here's what I would have liked to see happen, knowing how the draft played out
14: Giannas Adetokubo, SF
move 21/26 and DWill for 16 and John Jenkins (ATL)
16: Lucas Noguiera, C
Giannas seems to me clearly the "value" pick Flip thinks Shabazz is (i.e. a guy at 14 that could end up being one of the 5 best players in this draft), plus expectations would be pretty low
