I might literally have a heart attack if we could snag Ayton in the draft. That’d be too perfect.
I have been wondering about potentially moving up to the mid lottery area for a big if the pick doesn’t convey. I have my eyes on Bamba, as I could see a couple of teams passing on him or not being thrilled about taking him.
Depending on the team, I wonder if something like the Sacramento pick, our pick this year, and Rozier (I might even add the Clippers pick if need be, too) would be enough to move up to around the 5-8 range to select Bamba. He needs some development time, but he’d fill a really big need at C for us for a long time moving forward, along with having the potential to deal with Embiid down the road after putting on size.
Imagine a lineup of Kyrie, Brown, Hayward, Tatum, and Bamba once Horford’s contract expires!
