TP to the OP for the thread and the shout-out.
Given the slots we're picking at, this thread deserves multiple hits and pages for its relevancy to our situation in having to take chances with our picks.
Harvey (good call, Beat LA) , Pettaway, Luwawu and Tokoto all interest me.
Thanks, TP for you, too
. I just looked up JP Tokoto, though, and wasn't impressed by his numbers, but that obviously doesn't tell the whole story. Is there a specific reason why you're interested in him, like, did he have a breakout performance in a big game somewhere that I missed, lol
I'll say this, though - depending on who's still available, if we could get Delon Wright at 16, Harvey at 28 (which is very dicey, imo, because of teams like the Spurs and Bulls picking ahead of us), Upshaw at 33 (which, again, is definitely not set in stone seeing as Minnesota and Houston, in order, both pick ahead of us, and they both know how to draft), and whoever is left at 45, lol
, be that Petteway, Boatright, Dakari Johnson, or Richardson, that's one hell of a draft, imo. I know that we already have too many guards, but we need as much talent as possible. Plus, some of the guys won't work out, and you should never draft for need. I think we need to get a few more second round picks, quite honestly, and then sign whoever isn't drafted, like one, or both, of the Harrison twins, and any of the other guys that have been mentioned so far in this thread. The Lakers signed Jabari Brown and Roscoe Smith after last year's draft, and the former has proven that he can play in the NBA, and we have to do the same if we want to be successful, imo. It's not like we already have even one proven star, let alone a foundation of some sort in place, so leave no stone unturned, lol
