    Alright, good to know where the Spurs will be picking now (#11 or #12). Gonna be a fun draft season.
    That's a good news, we'll have more choices than at 15 or 16 necessarily, i hope we'll win the coin flip against Charlotte and in some dreams climb in the lottery lol

    At 11, one of Sengun, Wagner, Moody, or Giddey has to be available, I imagine.

    You're only hurting yourself if you think that's gonna happen
    Longshot... True. That's why it's called a lottery.

    Who's your top 4? Cade, Mobley, ...

    By some miracle, the Spurs get the coin flip for 11, and pull a Lakers moving from 11 to 4 ... who is the target? Suggs/Green or Kuminga?

    Cade, Mobley, Kuminga... No fourth. The talent level drops from there, IMO.

    Common Dejounte, Jalen Green is a top talent for sure and what about Suggs ? there are 5 guys better than others.

    That will be my wish list without Wagner, if we could have someone between Giddey, Moody and Sengun i will be very happy.

    In the history of the NBA only an average of three players selected from the top 10 become stars. Most of these guys aren't going to make it, no matter how pretty their game looks.

    So... who out of Cade, Kuminga & Mobley won't make it?

    Huh? I was saying that those are my three guys who are going to make it. Anyone else drafted in the top 10 probably won't.

    What I'm trying to tell you: What makes you so sure that these 3 players are going to make it and not others? Green and Suggs have a point to make it over Kuminga at least.

    Ah, that's not how I interpreted your post at all...

    I don't think Green's feel for the game is great.

    Suggs is a tougher choice because he could have a Lillard type career but in the end, Kuminga's offensive arsenal is much more convincing to me.

    That's your opinion. You can be right, but there's a chance that you're wrong. And there are years when more than three players out of the top10 become stars. Maybe Cade is a bust. Who knows?

    Yes, it is an opinion... I never said it wasn't. You asked me a question, guy. And I said an *average* of three. More than that is rare if you look. Not sure where this at ude is coming from. Too early for this .

    Wagner, Sengun, Moody, Giddey.

    Wagner has the highest floor I think.

    Giddey has the highest chance to bust as a PG who can’t shoot or perhaps beat his man off the dribble, that’s the concern at least.

    Sengun, like Wagner, has great fundamentals, and a chance to be a star, but could really struggle due to physical issues in space and pace.

    Moody seems like he could be a solid player, help us with scoring, but his path is more vague for me.

    Anyone have ideas for other realistic targets at 11/12?

    Spurs can still pick in the top 3, if they get lucky in the lottery, right?

    Yeah, I think it’s like a 1.7% chance. But maybe the Spurs get “rewarded” for not tanking? Ha.

    If they win the coinflip against Charlotte then the chance for the first pick is 2% and the chance for top 4 is 9.4%

    If they lose the coinflip - 1.5% and 7.2%.

    They draw for the top 4 spots now. Have for two years.

    1.8 if they win 1.7 if they lose. They add the 11 and 12 odds then split it with a little more added to the winner.

    It would be very on point for silver to fix the draft and give the spurs a 4rth pick in a 3 person draft.

    It’s actually a 5 player draft before it drops off sharply, although the first 3 are a notch above the next 2. Oh, and if Silver thinks that would be screwing us over, then screw us over. I’d love to pick at 4 vs, 11,12. Drafts also rarely pan out that the top players drafted are the top players 3-4 years later. Just scroll thru the draft history on basketball-reference if you don’t believe me.

    You could get Kuminga or Suggs at 4. Yes, please.

    Spurs need to try and move up and swing for the fences. Drafting role players to fill out a roster with no stars is pointless

    This is far fetched. Regardless this team needs considerably more than a top 5 pick.
