    Letting Holmes walk.

    I guess it depends on how the FO feels about the previous regime developmental guys (James, Guy), but having a bunch of 2nd rounders lose value if you have a bunch in consecutive years because you just run out of developmental spots to keep them. Kings obviously want to hold on to...

    Really now? I've been seeing 6'6 everywhere, but all the merrier if he measures better. Leans more into the narrative that you can play him up vs some 3's.

    So maybe a little hot-takeish... but I'd take Jaden Springer over Davion Mitchell. First, he's 4 years younger, 2 inches taller with an inch on his wing-span. He's one of the youngest American players I believe projected to be a first round pick. So there's some chance he could still be growing...

    Players that I would target with the 9th pick:

    Yeah Im more convinced that Barnes is the absolute perfect mesh of fit and upside. He's gonna be a 3/4 flex wing, allows Harrison Barnes to play close to full time at the 4, adds elite big wing playmaking (which there's like...6 guys that could qualify for that tag) and has legitimate 1-4...

    Letting Holmes walk.

    Kelly O is actually really good as a spacer/passer and has been underrated on D is whole career. He's not Holmes, but he'd be a pretty good replacement to get 80-90% of his impact. I'd love a world where we could get Holmes on his early bird rights and sign Kelly O for the MLE. Perfect 3rd big...

    Kings Roster next season

    No troll here, even though I have in the past. Do you know have any idea if they offered that package for Gordon? That's my hold-up; it seems so unlikely they offer 1st/Nesmith for Barnes, but not Gordon when they were so widely reported to have Gordon as their top target.

    Way too low for Keon Johnson here. Tremendous athlete who is probably better on defense than he is offense at this point. I don't see too many issues with him defending 3s either with a solid wingspan and of course the eye-popping athleticism. He'll be multi-positional defender where you can...

    Kings Roster next season

    Right. I think that's a detriment? I've thought that teams value more flexibility in the "win-now" type trades and would rather have the 1 1/2 year or 1/2 guys rather than big long-term contracts.. They moreso go long-term in FA, rather than trades. Totally anecdotal though, nothing to really...

    Lol what? Dude has been more injured than Kristaps and has yet to come close to his offensive production, much less Kristaps rim protection and defense.

    Off season targets

    I think a Buddy-Bagley base for KP actually makes a ton of sense for both teams. Luka gets 2 lights-out shooters next to him in THJ and Buddy and a big who theoretically can rim run for him in the PnR. Kings take the big injury risk, but potentially massive buy-low on KP (who btw, actually still...

    Eh disagree. Terrance Davis (especially if you retain him for like 3/15) and Delon Wright on a 1/6.5 (after factoring in CoJo dead money) is pretty great value for bad 2nd round picks. Both guys showed they're rotation contributors (in Delon's case, a low-end starting quality guard) for an asset...

    It's not really talked about enough, but Frank Mason functionally being the only 2nd round investment he made in 5 years was a one of the main reasons for Vlade's downfall. A big reason why teams spike in wins is hitting on 2nd rounders with that limited invested asset. Bigger ones (Jokic...

    Players that I would target with the 9th pick:

    My biggest issue with some of these prospects like Kai Jones, Sengun and Garuba is just the positional value of a big man if he's not going to be a generational type player. Like even if we lose Holmes this off-season, Im confident we can get 80% of him back in someone like Noel/Theis or even go...

    Dont know if I've asked you or not, but would you have been on board with some of the rebuilding packages that teams got at the deadline for similar player comps? The Aaron Gordon trade for Barnes (long-term contract,young player, future 1st round pick), The Dipo package for Buddy (essentially a...

    Letting Holmes walk.

    Ok, ill bite. Per 36 isn't "normalized" in the slightest because it assumes the way a player generated his numbers will apply over 36 minutes of game time. Considering Funderburke played 8/319 career games above 30+ minutes, this is a really bad assumption to make that he all of a sudden could...

    Letting Holmes walk.

    Per 36 doesn't mean what you think it means. Holmes is significantly better on both ends and its not close. Just a bad take, they happen from time to time!

    Maybe in the smallest spurts, but 2 true bigs just doesn't work. I'd rather swing for a wing with pick 9 and sign Noel/Theis if Holmes walks.

    Porter and Winslow are both super intriguing "buy-low" guys for me that fit what we should be looking for. Lots of injury risk, but you're potentially getting a quality starting 3/4 flex guy for the MLE if they can hit. Which almost never happens.

    Sac/Lakers Trade Proposal

    Contenders are exactly who we should be looking at. Kings fans are jaded at Buddy, but he's still one of the best spacers in the game with more utility than a Bertans/Harris type. I think he'd fit incredibly well with the Knicks with Randle/Barrett, would fit incredibly well with Philly, fit...

    LOL. Some of the "takes" on this site are so far gone out of reality, it's mind-blowing.
