    Who will we leave on the board that infuriates part of the fanbase? I’m guessing either Kai or Sengun.

    I wonder the degree to which the win now mode is dissuading these prospects from GSW, in secret tbh. Coach Kerr basically threw Wiseman under the bus for good reason, but still. He was rumored to be traded even before being picked and his first season aside from being disappointing for a 1st round draft pick has him already rumored to be in trades again. He’s under immense pressure to develop quickly to fit a timeline that’s not his own. All these guys aren’t ready for that pressure which is why I think GSW is expected to make some move. It’s not about the future for them.

    And these guys can’t be assured that they won’t be ditched after getting drafted for some win now move. That’s just how it is. I wouldn’t necessarily want to be drafted there for that reason, even after giving them the lip service of admiring their team, etc.

    They have always been rumored to flip 7 for a win now player and keep 14. Anyways this is all speculation based on some reports. They may very well keep the pick bc they love Franz or Giddey or someone else like Bouknight.

    I wonder if you missed an article I posted about how Halliburton and his agent really dissuaded other teams higher up in the draft from drafting him. He wanted to go to Sacramento bc they sold him in his fit, development, role etc.

    Its not that cut and dried.

    There are rumors swirling with Beal, and others around the league it’s possible that pick is going to the Wizards after all for example…
    If they are really enamored with someone at 7 maybe they have a deal somewhere to package Wiseman + 14 with Wiggins for cap relief or a player that offers 'some' cap relief.

    My personal guess from reading between the lines is that there is a deal in place and its not some salary dump/cap relief. They likely have made offers for the disgruntled stars out there, and if there is a trade it will happen on draft night. I don’t know that there is a bid for the 7th necessarily. Grizzlies have the highest rumors to want to trade up but who knows if it is for 7. I am now wondering that they want Mobley, and not some of the rumors that are swirling around, but they have to be comfortable with picking at 10 if they can’t trade higher for example. There are many other teams interested in trading up, and a few stars that want out. My guess is that the trade is likely with the Wizards for Beal. GSW sends Wiggins as $ ballast, and maybe Wiseman and 7th plus a future pick. Wizards to jumpstart their rebuild likely prefer the higher, not the lower pick, they may even want both.

    There was a rumor on twitter that Grizzlies offered Dillon Brooks in exchange for Beal. I imagine picks would be attached, and that the offer was rejected bc Winslow was included for salary matching. Bledsoe would be ballast in a different hypothetical offer. There are things happening behind closed doors that we can only speculate about, but projecting GSW is the riskiest bc IMO they are likely to move one or both picks in some kind of win now move.

    I haven’t even mentioned Simmons bc who knows what’s going on there. The rumor is Morey is waiting for the expected Lillard trade request. Incidentally, I heard that NOLA is also interested in both Beal and Lillard… so who knows.

    Final point is that if there is a bidding war, obviously GSW can’t get stingy with their assets, bu their move isn’t IMO as narrow as shedding salary. It’s never been about that or they never would have asked Durant to do the sign and trade. This is the only way they have to improve their roster. Worry about shedding salary if Curry’s ankles fall off a cliff basically.

    No I posted an article from a local news station in Sacramento tbh.
    Got a link?

    Those quotes in what I posted are from Haliburton himself but I guess it's possible there's something more to the story.

    Dude! Go to your kid's ceremony, nothing you do will affect the draft results and you can read about it on spurstalk later...
    No joke. We all know how this goes. The day before and the day of, anyone that we consider drafting are highly criticized to the point we don't want to draft anyone and trade the pick for next year. Then, once drafted, Spurstalk will be flooded with articles about how this was who the Spurs wanted all along and fluff pieces to get everyone optimistic. There will be youtube clips and lots of line up speculations....and then the player will spend the year in the G- League.

    he will miss the real time epic meltdown in the draft thread
    Tbh, this is one reason I put Kispert first. The meltdown if the Spurs pick him would be pretty epic, especially if the Senguns and Giddeys are on the board

    cue the whack-a-mole trolls who only show up when things aren’t good— screaming for attention, calling out people they disagree with (it’s like yelling at the sky) and wanting so badly to be acknowledged

    I think we are making this way too complicated. Other teams may do trades inside the top 11 and I truly expect some to be made just not by the spurs. That's been their history. it might change but probably won't. Which ever player hasn't been selected is who we will take.
    I gave up trying to figure out how the spurs will draft because it doesn't always make sense or pan out. I can hear it already, "they drafted a guard - but we need rebounding or they drafted for rebounding but he can't shoot a three pointer or make free throws" or this is a popular one "he's a project who's two years away". Whoever they draft will stir up some controversy with some people. I'm just getting ready for all the #@#$% opinions that will surely be flying tomorrow. After that it will be free agency....that should really be interesting.

    this is the most throwaway comment of all time. this could be said of literally any team sitting outside of the top 10. Thanks Jeremy Woo for the insight

    Prolly the same people who want to break the bank or trade multiple players for Duncan Robinson.

    we don't really have anything to warrant a trade up. vassel and johnson might get close, but there is no contract worth trading two useful players. A future first A la dallas for luka might fly, is there a luka level talent?

    Duarte is a good pick for the Knicks, I feel. Would give up a lot for him, though. If Charlotte trades down, excellent news for the Spurs. And I think it's smart for Charlotte, too: if they want Jackson or Kai Jones or any big, it feels better not reaching at the 11 slot.

    Obi + 19 + 21 or even 19 + 21 + 2023 1st would be pretty tempting unless someone we really coveted fell.

    Maybe this? https://www.sacbee.com/sports/article247300064.html

    But it's Givony and Lowe talking about it. Much of it reads like speculation, but who knows?

    And then there is this, which kind of sounds like Haliburton is deflecting that question a bit. Again, who knows? https://www.nbcsports.com/bayarea/vi...cramento-kings

    But the way Halliburton answered the question on that video makes it seem like that he and his agent did not explicitly tell any team to not draft him, but they sure could have made it known where they wanted to go. So if you're a team like the Spurs--who were just burned by Kawhi, is he worth the trouble, particularly since Vassell was right there to take?

    Toppin is a stiff. If they included him, I’d ask for another first rounder to take his salary.

    I'm by no means an Obi Toppin guy but I don't like writing rookies off after one year, even one at an advanced age for such.

    His style of play, theoretically, fits the Hornets current core too.

    If you feel you can grab your guy at 19, this would be hard to turn down for Charlotte.

    Have to scroll back a bit, but Iíll link you to it when found.

    edit: I hadnít seen but A post above but do believe it was similar or the same I posted. You arenít going to find a definitive admission, the smoking gun.
