    Chet isn't hulking and it took barely a bump from LeBron to put him out a season.

    It was a Lisfranc fracture, which until recently in sports terms, had only been seen in car crashes. Upstairs, it may have been a bump, but there was some serious torsion on that foot.

    I can almost guarantee you that if we get Wemby, Pop will explain to him that he needs to not play in any stupid pickup games.

    French top league isn't the NBA but it's still pro ball and Wemby didn't have any major injury this year, with a very high usage rate. The team is litterally build around him and he's gonna end up MVP... He missed part of last season but I guess they adapted and that might not be due to his size or frame anyway.

    We should maybe wait to see how it's going for him in the NBA before panicking about injuries. He's one of kind so he might be also on the medical part.

    If there is ever going to be a tall, skinny MFer who is prepared to take on the physical punishment of the NBA, I feel like it’s Wemby. Dude is going to have the world’s best scientists taking care of him like he’s Steve Rodgers taking the serum to become Capt America. I feel like injuries are mainly just the combination of freak accidents that put forces on your body combined with your body’s preparedness to deal with those forces. I feel like Wemby will be as well prepared for that relative to his frame as anyone who’s ever stepped foot on the court. There is too much $ on the line for this not to be the case.

    Random idea/question.

    OKC has three quality point guards. We have zero. We may have a high lottery pick. Presti masturbates to lottery picks.

    So if we don’t get Wemby, would you trade pick #2, 3, or 4 for Josh Giddey? (I don’t see them trading the other two but rather build around them.)

    Just spitballing.

    No. Who are the OKC PGs besides Giddey?

    You're both wrong. The Thunder have two quality PG's, Gilgeous-Alexander and Giddey.

    I wouldn't consider trading 2 or 3 for the latter, 4 is debatable but I don't see either side being interested and even though I don't love the options, (Amen) Thompson, for example, is actually similar to Giddey, only younger and in another universe athletically, so I don't see the point.

    Tre Jones is more of a PG than Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, who is strictly a shooting guard.

    Giddey is a proven, above average starting PG right now, and likely future all star... and he's 20 and stands at 6'7". His outside shot (biggest weakness) is improving.
    If we could get him for #2 even, we should pull the trigger. I don't think Presti moves him for #2 even. Him for #4 is downright armed robbery.

    IMO there's 0 chance they trade Giddey but if i can yes i can trade a top pick for him. Depends on what i think of Henderson.

    I was very impressed with the early reports on how he's taking care of his body at 19 years old, with longevity in mind. That kind of awareness and work ethic is great to see, and speaks highly of his intelligence and commitment. That's very important because, to improve his long term outlook, he should be under a load management routine from the start, to maximize his impact when it counts the most (playoffs) and for as long as possible. If he had that "stat driven" mindset a lot of youngers nowadays have, that'd be detrimental to him long term. But his mindset and the Spurs approach seem like a match made in heaven, I think Wemby and the Spurs are by far each others' best option looking forward.

    SGA has been considered a point guard.
    Jalen Williams has been considered a point guard.

    Oh, well I guess we’re set then. To use one of your favorite phrases, are you an idiot? You’re missing the obvious point. They have three very good ball dominant guards and Presti loves draft picks. We need a point guard and Giddey would be the weakest of their three, though would be great for us.

    Anyway, moving on…

    They can all act as lead guards but their skill sets are complementary: Giddey is more of a playmaker, SGA is more of a scorer, and Jalen Williams is more of an all around guard/wing who excels at playing off ball as well. Not like, say, Detroit getting Scoot on top of Ivey or Cunningham, or Charlotte with Lamelo already aboard. So they won't move any of them unless it's for a ridiculous price tag.

    Still looks to be made out of glass. Lost his entire first year before it even began.

    Even if you can consider SGA, Giddey and Jalen Williams as point guards at times, the fact is they can all play together. Further, whoever they’d pick at #2 or 3 is going to be just as redundant as one of those 3 (Scoot, Miller or even a Thompson).

    On the other hand, if this was last year’s draft and they were looking to add a premier big to their lineup, I could see it.

    Trying to think of who might covet #2, ORL comes to mind because they have lots of young talent already and might view a PG like Scoot as the final piece in their rebuild and may not want the burden of developing two top 10 picks. I’m not sure who else might have an abundance of talent in a certain area that they’d feel like they’d want to swap it out for Scoot. Brandon Miller might actually be more enticing for a lot of teams in that regard.

    Sure they can all play together. Jalen is very adaptable with his skills. I see a player exploding right now and I guess I just have doubts that he’ll want to stay off the ball moving forward in the future. Would it be better for them with Jalen at point guard, SGA as the shooting, guard, and Brandon Miller as a shooter? Who knows, just speculating.

    No beef with the speculation at all, that’s what makes this message board fun (and I don’t think anyone should be called an idiot for throwing out ideas we can speculate on). There doesn’t seem to be enough obvious upside to me for this to be worth it for OKC. Seems like you’d be breaking up the trio of SGA/Giddy/JWill in hopes of having a trio as good as SGA/Giddy/JWill.

    Out completely on Miller? For me he is still either option 2 or 3, but I do like Whitmore as the best choice outside of the top 3.
    Nah, Iím not completely out. Heís like #5 on my board. Itís like Jabari Smith last year, I donít buy that heís the second best prospect in the draft even though itís the consensus. Year after year it never works out like that. Shooter archetypes like him have to show heís elite in that aspect to warrant the hype but heís really only above average. I mean, heíll definitely have some big shooting games that makes it look like so, thatís what chuckers do. A team that gives him that much freedom will allow him to thrive. I donít think the Spurs will give him the keys that early nor do I think heís a guy the current roster (at least the core ones) will rally aroundÖ some fans might not think this matters, but IMO, the Spurs operate that way.

    They aren't likely breaking that up and OK City most likely will be adding a lottery pick of their own.
