Donovan Klingan from UConn would be interesting with our 2nd round pick. Likely to be available?
Spurs win tonight v Portland hurts our chance at 33 right??
yea but at least i believe it helps us get 35 instead of 36 if we miss out on the rocket's pick
I think it is pretty likely Portland will lose tomorrow v GS Warriors unless GS purposely wants to lose to stay at 6 (v Kings) rather than go to 5 (to play Suns). Clippers (who play Suns) and GS play at same time tomorrow, so it will be interesting. Portland's incentive to lose is much stronger than GS, so I suspect they will, which would mean in the worst case we get the 35th pick. Not bad, given that we gave up the 29th pick for Brogdon.
I'd take a gamble on someone like Klingan if he declares. Reminds me of Kessler with Jazz; is that a fair comp? Similar size and length, good shot blocking and rebounding. Kessler may have more nimble feet. Klingan aspires describes himself as a combination of Jokic and Embiid; how I wish!!
Rumors are that he could climb into the 1st round. Sonogo might be decent back up power forward. Strong rebounder. Slotted to go in this range I think. I'm pretty uneducated on the draft this year, but I sure hope we focus on size, we are so rich with guards.
