    Yeah, if they come out with any of Jalen, Moody, Wagner, or even Giddey I'm not mad. I just feel Moody is the type of player they'd have a hard time screwing up. Jalen's got the upside but if he can't get his shot down I don't trust this franchise not to screw it up and turn him into the next...

    2021 Workouts

    Yeah, I think that's a pretty darn good assessment overall on the pros and cons and while you could check Baja's write up for a more detailed look Moody has proven his ability to guard up in college already. He doesn't look like a guaranteed star, nor do I think he's a lock down defender...

    2021 Workouts

    I don't think the Kings are guaranteed to land a star at 9 regardless but we already know how bad this franchise can screw up talent when they don't fit. Moody is the type that the league values right now if your team needs defense and length on the wing which the Kings need more than anyone...

    I've seen him higher and much lower so who knows. This draft is a crap shoot. A lot of it comes down to decision too. If Monte is picking between Wagner, he, and Jalen I think Moody is the best fit since his game is that of a traditional G/wing. He's more comfortable when it comes to scoring...

    [NBA] Comments that don't warrant a thread (JUL)

    Yeah, that alone could give them a reason to look at it this way. And with LeBron they could pull it off since it sounds like the Lakers are finally giving in to reality that AD has to become a center pretty much. Bron at PF and AD at center with DeRozan is an interesting inverted offense type...

    Hopefully the basketball gods smile down 2 drafts in a row and by next year Moody is sliding right in next to Fox and Tyrese on the wing.

    Letting Holmes walk.

    My hope is that Jericho Sims is there at 39 and they look at taking him. He can slide right in and provide upside and quality minuites at center from day 1. The other hope is that if Bagley stays, Holmes isn't re-signed so Marvin can get a legit shot at the center position if for nothing more...

    Bajaden's crazy, makes no sense, one and only, 2021 mock draft:

    They seem to be entirely different players. I think Garuba will be best as an undersized C. Wagner has legit wing skills, Garuba, nah, not really. Also defensively I think Wagner is much more capable against wing players. Garuba tends to get beat then rely on recovery more.

    Letting Holmes walk.

    Yeah they'd still have holes that might be hard to fill, but I think a Luka/Holmes pairing is a really good start to something interesting. Maybe it would allow KP to be the big soft stretch PF he is and flourish next to him.

    Bajaden's crazy, makes no sense, one and only, 2021 mock draft:

    I doubt that it is. This is probably one of those deals where someone is going a few picks back that they want so teams are willing to shuffle a bit. I can't see them trading all the way down to 9 just to dump Kevin Love.

    Letting Holmes walk.

    Yeah it sucks but Luka and Holmes would hurt worse since it will make Luka that much more effective. Marvin, you better be on your game pal! haha.

    Bajaden's crazy, makes no sense, one and only, 2021 mock draft:

    Yeah, I see him as more of a switchable 4 than 3 anyway so I think him being able to guard up will alleviate some of the mismatch concerns against smaller players since he'll maintain a degree of versatility. As long as you have some versatility you can game plan around it. He's not nearly on...

    Damian Lillard

    Superstar is a relative term in some ways. Right now his production is there and if they start winning even a tad bit more then him being an All-star is a forgone conclusion. You are comparing other franchises with the Kings, that's another issue there, lol. The Kings are in a strange spot...

    Marvin Bagley will ball out next season!

    And the poor guy can't do that hanging out at the 3 point line watching. Well, sometimes he does but it's usually out of frustration from being iced out.

    Players that I would target with the 9th pick:

    The only issue I've seen when watching Besitkas games is that Sengun really uses the style to his advantage. He has terrible footwork defensively and an iffy motor himself at times. Especially when it comes to run outs. The main problem is he uses his body as a deterrent on help moving into...
