    At #4, it depends on what happens with Memphis and New York. If they take Morant and Barrett, as expected and there is no trade of the pick, I think Hunter is the best fit. I am hoping Barrett falls to the Pelicans at 4, but Griffin should take the best player on the board and whether he takes Garland, Culver or whoever, I will accept that he believes that player is worth the pick. If they trade down with Atlanta for 8 and 10, my hope would be that he takes Hunter/White and Hayes. I believe the best way to rebuild is by starting with defense and the trio of Zion, Hunter and Hayes (combined with Jrue and Ball) would kickstart the rebuild in a very positive way. They can add shooters in FA.

    For the second round picks, they could pick draft and stash guys, if available. But my late first or early second round desire is the kid from Florida State, Kabengele. Everyone has their favorites, but I think Kabengele hasn't come close to reaching his potential.
    To your first statement,it seems like we have dominated the NBA news cycle since the AD trade request. It's seems that a couple of times a week there is some news on the Pels going on. I think the narrative on this franchise has changed dramatically in just four months. It would be exciting if we become a legitimate destination team.

    on golic and mingo they were talking about the draft and all stars...they were talking about a stat that showed for 25 years straight the 8th pick in the NBA draft has not made a all star game...

    so for all you posters who want us to swap with atlanta for the 8th pick,,i think yall might want to re think that idea lol.........but for real thats crazy,,25 straight years the 8th pick has not made a all star game....

    listening to what griff said he wanted out of the AD trade was a vet to play with jrue and a up and coming star i think.....well , we got the young players but not the vet....so i think the 4th pick may be a vet he wants or we pick hunter or someone else.......

    i dont believe we will have more than 2 rookies on the active roster because we trying to make the playoffs this coming season to show jrue,,zion and the NBA world that its a new day with our organization in being a destination for players to come and play for......we have to make the playoffs or miss be a hand full of games for people to take us serious and not as jokes anymore....

    I was just going to say that's not true. Vin Baker made four All-star teams! THen I realized 1993 was 26 years ago.

    Exciting times ahead for you guys and your legendary city...y’all deserve an NBA title, I hope to see you guys competing for titles in the near future. I saw someone on here mention how FA might be more inclined to come to the Pels. I definitely agree with this, and here in Sacramento we are getting used to FA not seeing us as dysfunctional. You guys have an awesome GM calling the shots, that’s for sure.

    Good to hear from someone outside the Pelicans immediate fanbase who isn't angry at us for getting Zion

    Usually we just hear from LA and NY types in the media who seem mad at us for existing. Sacramento is on the up and up as well. Fox is a stud and I still wish we hadn't given you guys Buddy. Bright future for both teams.
    Zion ''The Earthquake'' Williamson

    Goga, Hayes, or Clarke. All three of them are very, very good rim protectors.

    Haha, yah right as Harden and Westrbook twilight Zion and Fox will be leading the league into a new era, good times ahead! I definitely feel like I found a second Western Conference team (have always loved you guys, Tyreke, Boogie, Eric Gordon etc etc).

    Can't wait to see my other team kill the draft tonight, and maybe even secure my main man John Collins from ATL? As many here have suggested, I think this would make this team insane. Garland-Jrue-Ingram-Zion-Collins...would be EPIC. And we love our Buddy Buckets, here in SAC, he has a Kobe like work ethic and a Shane Battier type demeanor, great guy.

    I want to trade back and get the 8 and 10 spot where I would select

    cameron reddish or rui hachimura

    and jaxson hayes

    What asset would we give for Collins? Doubt they'd do Ingram for Collins straight up. JC is better than Ingram, doesn't have the injury concerns, and wouldn't leave them when the year is up. Highly doubt ATL lets go of a rebuilding piece while they're rebuilding.

    No surprises here, but we picked up Jah’s option. Even if he maintains the same level of production, that is a huge steal for the price. I hold out hope that we can sign him to a cheap long term deal and he balls out right after.

    Too expensive. Nice player but there are probably better options.
