    Russel, get the Lakers band back together?

    Resign Randle?

    Have all of the Lakers players from the last 14 drafts

    This is a very good deal. The difference in talent between 4 and 8 is nearly negligible, gaining 17 allows you to make a risky-bust-or-boom draft that you wouldn't feel comfortable making higher up, and another second rounder (while not particularly important) can never hurt. Combine that with the protected Cavs pick, Griff essentially gained 3 firsts and a 2nd for 1 first. Yes, we likely never see the Cavs pick, but it gives a lot of flexibility either for drafting multiple pieces as projects or for combining into trades.
    Zion ''The Earthquake'' Williamson

    Paying attention to the next draft too early.

    That is what I have read as well. Will likely become 2021 and 2022 2nd rounders.

    The Cleveland pick protections

    Griff just expanded the ''#4'' from the LA trade into #8, #17, #35, and the 2020 Cavs FRP.

    Because of Griff's Genius, Gayle Benson now owns a second NBA Franchise for the next seven years,

    Griffin just squeezing every other team in the league, getting blood from the stone.

    Not sure why we did deal before being on clock. What if Barrett falls?

    We trade 57 to Atlanta as part of this deal.

    Draft Claxton, Porter, or Kabengele at 39 instead of Reid if any of them are there.

    Barrett's honestly not that great.

    Maybe, maybe not. But he would hold a ton of value at 4 and the Pelicans were rumored to like him.

    This is awesome, I think. Gotta put us in the mix for Vucevic?

    Sure but if we were willing to move down, either Griff has other names he likes just fine, or he has more moves in mind.

    You're right, thanks!!! Maybe a undrafted FA? LOL

    They even took Hill. Praise the Lord

    You know, at the same time as this is a good trade for us, props to Atlanta as well. If they love Hunter and want to guarantee him at #4, then good for them. Sounds like a cliche but this trade works for both teams.

    Hawks enter next season with a Trae Young, DeAndre Hunter, John Collins core that looks just great for them.

    Not sure what's going on but it's a lot of movement. Hopefully it has purpose. I rather keep the picks but not sure if that's the play.

    With the TWolves trading into 6, could we see the worst case scenario-

    1 - Zion
    2 - Ja
    3 - RJ
    4 - Hunter
    5 - Culver
    6 - Garland
    7 - White
    8 - ???

    Could we be choosing between Reddish, Hayes, and Doumbouya? Maybe Goga?

    Hope someone sneaks into top 7 and pushes a player down. Seems like a big dropoff after 7.

    The only thing that bothers me is that now he has the money to go after Kevin Love. We all have heard he is a big Love supporter. His number is just too big.

    We better draft my boy sekou at 8!

    No way Cleveland is smart enough to take Culver at #5. They're going to take Garland, and run two undersized guards who shoot well but can't pass. It will be a mess and they'll love it.

    I don't see a big drop-off at all. Goga and Hayes both have higher upside than White, Hunter, and probably Garland as well.

    If Coby white goes at 7 the pick at 8 has to be either sekou or Hayes

    Gotta be Hayes in that scenario
