"anthony melton" Discussed on Chad Ford's NBA Big Board
"And we are back and we're talking about the future talent rankings. We're ranking teams based off of their talent under the age of twenty five right now and which of those teams are set up for the future. The best we've talked about the atlanta hawks. We've talked about the boston celtics. We've talked about the cleveland. Cavaliers in orlando magic now we're looking at rankings. Five through ten. And there's a three way tie between the detroit pistons the memphis grizzlies and the new orleans. Pelicans at five right now. They all earn- twenty four points for their teams and all. These teams are really in different spaces. Right now memphis. Grizzlies make the playoffs. Pelicans trying to make the playoffs pistons. Still heavily in rebuild mode right now so they're all a little bit different spaces all of them have a player that could be a potential superstar for them and for the detroit pistons. That was obviously the number one. Pick in the two thousand twenty one draft kate cunningham who got a tier one designation from us schizo to your one point five here. They also had city bay. Who was there. Twenty twenty draft pick that ended up first team all rookie in two thousand hundred twenty twenty draft class right now. He gets a tier three designation. Then they got a bunch of guys that are tier four designations right now but some of those guys have potentials killian. Hayes was a lottery pick last year played more like a tier five guy but certainly has tier for talent. I definitely frankly tier three talent for them. Hopefully they see improvement from him. Isaiah stuart another guy only twenty years old tier four guy but could play into a tier three type of role someday. I'm going to diablo. Frank jackson josh jackson all tier five guys as well. Luca garza second round. Pick that got this year as a potential too. You're five guy. This is a rebuilding team. This is going to be another team. Like orlando that we expect to have a high draft pick next year and will continue to move up rankings and because some of their players are so young most of them between the ages of twenty and twenty two on this team. They're going to be in these rankings for a while for memphis. This is a team that made the playoffs last year. And so they're pretty bullish about the fact that they've got twenty four points with a ton of young players on this roster all of these guys by the way we'll be eligible next year for the rankings as well and so you're going to see the grizzlies hopefully improve by guys jumping up tears and that starts with john. Rat gets a tier two designation but frankly at times played like a tier one guy in the playoffs against the utah jazz this year. He certainly could move in to that tier one category scouts the advanced statistics rate him. Moore's it tier two all star guy. That's still impressive. Jaren jackson junior's been battling injuries gets a tier three designation but the upside for him becoming a tier two player even a tier one player. That's how high scouts are in them. Is there but he's got to prove that he's healthy so he gets it tier three designation. Both of these players could definitely improve on that as well and they're loaded with a bunch of young players that are role players that are coming off the bench right now and have been really productive for themselves. Tillman desmond bane. The anthony melton Really come to mind. And then they drafted with the tenth pick in the draft. A young player. He's only twenty years old zaire williams out of stanford right now. He gets a tier four designation. Here i'm not even sure he'll be here for. He'll likely be more like pure five when it comes to the plane next year but the talent is there and he could absolutely be a guy that you're going to see come and end up being a player that ends up being a tier two guy down the road and i think that in fact is what these teams are hoping for right now when you draft like a team like memphis. I like sarah williams. You're not drafting him. Hoping about what he can be in your one but what he can be in year..
"anthony melton" Discussed on Debate Amongst Friends With Doc & Prof
"Love on the roster. So i'm curious to see what their plan is with taco fall. Open a chance to play. Because i i really think that he has really really good mussa. I think he can shoot. He can play defense. He reminds me. Of course obama by ianovich. Not just because he's tall but he actually has a really really good feel around the rim And despite his obviously tall body can actually move very well. Ombu lastly been simmons. The ben simmons strain continues philadelphia seventy sixers and the process. Officially put on notice as ben simmons says. Hey i want out. There are several teams. That of course would be interested But at this point and this is something that i always aid when a player comes out and says it hayao one out in my opinion at lowers the trade value for the team. I'm not one hundred percents. Shore want the seventy sixers are going to get back in return for simmons. Obviously is playoff is playoff. I don't even say performance. I guess blender from the free throw line and i guess his at times irregular shooting ability or whatever you wanna call it leaves more room for desire but i know in the off season. He's been working. And i believe each season. He's gotten better and better so he's gonna look for a team that's gonna wanna run and really make some splashes i. I don't think you put him in the half court set. I really think you want to get him out face and had run. Valentine comes up here in this from. Cbs sports which is interesting lists that they put together. The first one is the portland trailblazers. Obviously a package where been sentenced. It's traded for cj mccollum. I know my improv. Talk about that quite often about whether it's time for the trailblazers to move on from either dame lillard or cj mccollum because just like similar to player systems. I ally wizards with bradley. Beal and john wall eventually. It's going to be time to move on second. We have the golden state warriors. Who feel like they been trying to move on from several people for a while now. Of course they're unsure about klay thompson And i think the big question would be if simmons draymond green can co exist I know they've been really really trying to package. James wiseman which stinks because he was a number two overall. Pick in twenty twenty And they've been looking to move andrew wiggins but i'm not a hundred percent sure that's enough And i know dr maury bum. He doesn't want to go and just get draft pick so is going to have to be something bigger than just wiseman and waiting so i'm not one hundred percent. Sure what they would. Be looking for the nicotine. Here is the atlanta hawks which they do have a lot of. Let's say debt. At the forward position i would see they have key von my man cave on here. Hitter cam reddish andy andrea hunt hunter. And if you can just flip to those guys you know impossibly maybe add somebody like dalla nari or bogdanovich will give you an opportunity to keep your core and have been silenced. Trae young clink cappella and john collins but is a high chance that philadelphia would want john collins So i'm not a hundred percent. Sure about that as well but with those other players give them a little bit of next. The denver nuggets. I'm not one hundred percent. Sure they really really want to change anything. I mean obviously michael. Junior isn't interesting prospect. That i could see barrymore possibly wanting but you definitely don't you see yourself giving up jamal. Murray and i can't see the sixers. Wanting shake milton or aaron gordon or any of those guys obviously joke which is definitely a no so yeah with the minnesota timberwolves on which is number five on the list. I just don't see it I'm just not seeing it. I don't even know if i could go over this. Because obviously karl anthony towns unless he wants out the ngelo. Russell definitely doesn't want to go back to philadelphia in anthony edwards while they trade him so it really doesn't make any sense. I can't see anything. Here worth mentioning. I don't think they should break back core. They just have to find a playmaker scoring defense. I think scoring is a little bit more valued in the timber. Wolves lock room And i just don't see where simmons fits their actually might go the same thing with the grizzlies John moran answer together would be awesome. But i'm sure this is probably going to cost them. Dillon brooks and i think dillon brooks is a stead in. If i'm memphis i personally wouldn't wanna send him there I do like the anthony. Melton allot but. I don't know if milton in brooks is enough for simmons. But if i'm if i'm memphis i definitely wouldn't make the steel. I do not think this is a good deal. number seven. Which just the last team on here. Who seems to be somebody. That's really stockpiling bigs right. We just mentioned it. With taco fall is to cleveland cavaliers. Obviously they have common sect stand up isaac a coro- but they also have cabin live out. They have a few different pieces in. I would say that in this particular situation. It could be multiple team trade. I'm hoping that based on this trade doesn't go through. Because i don't like either one of these players for houston especially if they're saying that were giving up christian. Would this particular trae within. Ben simmons to the cavs. That rockets would get taylor. Horton tucker is a coral in a first round. Top five protected paid for cleveland. The seventy sixers. Ricky rubio christian would in talent sexton as well as a cabinet is twenty twenty four first round. Pick in the lakers would just get seth curry which. I don't know how the lakers would feel about giving us taylor horn tucker so definitely i. Train for her for the lakers. Where the lakers necessarily get the most beneficial piece of the brighter. Right in this particular trade. I would assume that the frigging lakers would get been sentenced. Not so outside of that. I.

"They're real strong. Ben simmons seem bill and as of right now tuesday. Nine eighteen am eastern time fifty hours or whatever before the draft. There's been no credible buzz. That bradley beal is going to go to washington and say it's time now and we're just running out of time so absent that right. The warriors are still trying to win the championship. Next year the warriors just saw steph curry heaven. Mvp level season klay thompson coming back condition. Td draymond green. Just finished third and defensive player of the yearbook can't score anymore. Whatever you can still do lots of stuff like you're gearing up to win now even if you can't get bill. So i've been tinkering and toying around like is there a way. The warriors can use one of their draft picks. Yes they had this dream megadeal in mind. It's not in play right now. It's not it may not be in play right now. You're trying to win. can they. Seven or fourteen to get like a pretty good player who could help them this season because they do need help this season. Fourteen is kind of a may asset like. I don't think you're really going to get too much for fourteen. There's this idea like they can't really use oubre as sign and trade because the calendar does it lineup. That has to happen late. They can't they can't negotiate that now. We saw what happened with the puck. Simple donna vich. Last year everybody got slapped on the wrist. They have some middling contracts like looney pool moulder li they can together and on the high end they have wiggins. So i'm sitting here trying to build trades where they include seven but they moved down only a little bit like to ten to nine two eight to twelve maybe too far with san antonio and just get guys who yeah. This isn't a dream but they help us win this season. The problem is going to be. If there's someone they just love it seven that false them. They'll probably just take that guy and say we're happy so this is all stuff that could happen on the clock but a schmitz will start with you is there. Is there a warriors trade back scenario. That you like it all jonathan. I about it a little bit yesterday in online. I mean i think if you do move back to ten and he just said it and you can get a guy like you know. It's a little complicated. But if you can get a guy like anthony melt in there you can get a guy like brandon. Clark or xavier telnan. You know someone who would bring a little bit of toughness. I mean i think melton would be awesome you know with with staff in clay ball mover has improved as a shooter defender. Smart unlike he fits that style of play. And then i'm like. I'm like president of the the anthony. Melton fan club. He is they call him. Mr do something or mr do everything. I can remember on the memphis broadcast since. I'm not on tv. I call him mr up up man. That guy does stuff i mean. Not him keep going. I'm sorry no. I think he would be perfect. Fit so if you move back to ten all right then you're gonna get potentially a david mitchell. Okay the the thought is that he's most likely going to be available at ten. So that's a guy who i think is attractive because of his defense and he can help you right away You know older obviously fits kind of their style of play. you could look at. You know corey kiss bert. Or is josh giddy available. If you love josh giddy than you can potentially get him at ten and then you pick up a guy like melton whoever it is so i think that's a really interesting move. You know to to pick up somebody from memphis who can help next year. And then get a guy like a giddy or a davian or shooting and kiss bert or moses moody who can also help you right now and then you still have fourteen to get you know another potential wing shooter. Whether that's chris duarte whether that's trae murphy out of virginia he's kind of like a a cam johnson type You know if you do stay put at seven in jonathan commingle. Is there or james book. Night is there. I think those are two really interesting options. I mean book night. Like he could be a jordan clarkson type of guy early on in his career like they could use that scoring punch you know and i think he can help you now in has some upside and then you would hope that they could use minka. Maybe in like a harrison barnes type of role as well so a lot of options for golden state. But i kind of do like that. Move back to ten and pick up a player from memphis. So here's a trade that works it. It's going also illustrate some of the problems of this conceit. Melton clark and number ten for pool looney moulder emilee. Because that's how many guys you have to get to kabul up the salary to make it work and seven and so here are the issues. I could see golden state saying that's still not enough for us to go from seven to ten. I'm not sure i agree with that. I don't know the draft guys. Well enough maybe they think that maybe they don't. I could see memphis saying that's too much for us to drop back three spots because we like somebody at seven. I can see the number of players involved being a complicated anytime. You're putting in four players from one team. It gets a little bit messy and memphis crowded wrestler already. So that's the issue for the warriors. Is you either deal wiggins. And then you've got to have lots of money moving around in the deal and by the way i think the warriors are higher on wiggins and maybe twenty five of the remaining twenty nine teams in the nba. That's another issue. Here they they. They're super high on seven and they're super high and wiggins so all those kind of deal constructions are gonna run into that problem and then on the lower end you just have to cobble all of these picks together all of these players together rather just to make the salary work enough to get you a ten million dollar player at nine million players so those are the challenges the warriors face but if i were them and i'm not getting bill i would at least have to think about this on the flip side. If they love somebody at seven they can just take them and say we love them and someone's going to become available.

"The best transition passing we've seen in years. Might be probably the best passer in the class. So the knicks goes sixteen. Let's find out what jimmy battles are. Odyssey college basketball expert thinks of this pet. Jimmy patios here. The a inside of odyssey at number sixty and the mets have moved up. They have traded kevin knox and the nineteenth to move up just three spots. Which i think is a good move because josh get away. Okay joschka day. It's like giddy up. Today is a really good player who has a lot of upside. He's from australia. He did as well as lamelo ball did over in australia. A big guard from italy has great vision. He sees the floor. He can play a little bit of d. And i don't want to compare them to look dodger because he's not there yet but he has a really big oxide. He plays the nba style. You can sit him. He's that big guard that can do a lot and pass. He can switch on defense. He's a little unknown commodity. But i don't think that matters anymore because not everybody comes from college. Goes to g. Li like jalen green. Not everybody who's a one year wonder like jalen logs and josh day is a guy that at sixteen knicks. They need another playmakers. They don't really have a true point. Guard might take one. They have a few picks in the first round. Sixteen with they now have sixty they have twenty one. Tom timid never really doing a good job with leon. Rose is really good value pick. He's a really good risk. Pick but he's also going to be a solid player can turn into a star. I think so can't be an impact starter an all-star. I'm not sure that yet. But tim and the next guy that could fit in. Who's not going to be scared of pro style right away or intimidated and playing in the nba l. Which is the australian pro league which is produced a lot of players including like. I said before lamelo ball. I think josh is tremendous. Pick for the next fits in and plays right away and he's a really good passer fills a lot of need for tom. Ona's knicks as. They tried into next step and win. A playoff game playoff series. Two more fixed left for the day memphis at seventeen oklahoma city in eighteen. Both coming up as we continue with the ultimate mock draft. Twenty-one make sure you subscribe on your odyssey app remember on the odyssey app you can livestream our live. Nba draft show with nba draft goat. Chad fort draft draft locked on. Nba draft does raphael barlow. You're hearing here as well as john. Corrales that will all be on draft night plus live on the lockdown. Nba draft youtube channel. All brought to you by built in eighteenth picks are left for us. We've moved into the second. Half of the draft. Are you shooting the moon here. Richard are you trying to find a specific need or you're trying to find one specific skill. There used to be like if i go back in the years of the nba draft. It used to be the phrase in excuse. My language here that you had to have the i'd have the oak factor like there had to be one skill that made the other team. Look at you and say. I got a guard that guy. It feels like the nba. Become a more well rounded game or now you've got to have versatility to your game. What are you looking for at this point of the draft. I think the next two picks for example have teams that have already made one selection and then you also have at some point later in the first round you have multiple teams that made are gonna be making their second or third pick in the draft out of room to swing for the fences. And i think you go upside after you've already gone. Probably upside at the top assuming all of them as a whole generalizing it that they have already done so gone fit or not. You can do the opposite of what you did i take. He's richard stabbing you can catch him on lockdown. Nba draft raphael. Drafting for the grizzlies. I mean they have so much in everything right now. I don't know a rookie at this point. That is going to come in and start. Maybe not even make their rotation in the playoffs. So i think at this pick. If you're memphis you go with a guy that has a high upside that you don't necessarily need to contribute there. Maybe you can develop in south haven with the forgot. The name of their g. league team but it's odd that's name of any team in muscle the meccas hustle hustle up actually located in mississippi. But they're still. The hustle is the best name out there as a play by play announcer the hustler hustler. We'll see what mike the mad ants met. Ants can't meet that that's not bad either. Let's see what the hustle have in store for the grizzlies coming up here with his pick of the nba draft. We head to the dodd memphis. Grizzlies hello. This is shaun color spot. Podcast it's good to see what's again the memphis. Grizzlies is all the clock at fourteen. After acquiring the fourteenth pick from the golden state warriors where we selected james book from yukon. Now with the seventeenth into two thousand and twenty one ultimate in the draft. The memphis grizzlies. Slate kion johnson shooting guard at a university of tennessee. Now it may see a bit off. The grizzlies are selected. Kion johnson. would they just selected another shooting guard. James book and they already have multiple to guard roster to auctions off the current roster but about is this in selecting book nights. We gotta player. Who's skillset beats of the deep at the grizzly tab with kion johnson. We simply went best available. Keok johnson is an extremely valuable pick number seventeen highly intriguing to a guard who's athleticism and defensive upside which is too good to pass up one plus with gecas done for players of similar profiles to johnson like the anthony. Melton in cali anderson how deacons has helped to improve their shots. If taylor g can can have that. Same impact on kion johnson and help young develop a respectable shot. You've got a very very valuable player. Inbetween james book in kion johnson. The grizzlies now have to truly feel confident that they're going to have job rants long term backboard partner for the roster though there are plenty of options in the back for now. Maybe a bit too many on the grizzlies roster you also have plenty of trade assets that you can use from a creative front office to be able to bowl this moving folk. Yes the grizzlies. Need to add perimeter shooting. They were twentieth in the league in three point. Shooting percentage last season in just twenty four and three point makes per game so drafting six five tennessee guard kion johnson who shot the ball of just a twenty seven percent clip from three in his only year in college. Last year doesn't immediately address one of memphis's biggest needs. That's true but the fact is you. Don't pass up a prospect at number seventeen with johnson's freakish athleticism and considerable upside. And frankly i'm stunned. Failed this far in the draft. Most mock drafts at the nineteen year. Old johnson going somewhere in the mid to late lottery. Many adam a top ten pick having registered a record setting vertical leap of forty eight inches. Yes forty eight inches at the nba. Combine imagine johnson finishing off monster alleyoop from djalmir and all over sportscenter while using his athleticism is lengthened. Lateral quickness to be passed on the defensive in versus opposing backcourts in smaller wings. The great thing for the grizzlies is that they've got time on their side. Memphis isn't ready right now. To be a top four seats in west giving it time to try to develop johnson particularly that outside shot.

"Because there's there's just really not a lot behind them. I think ab- del nater. Who came over from okay see might be at other break. Glass in case of emergency guy who has really improved is shot and news. Never gotten a huge chance. You know he didn't really fit in kind of like what okay see likes but he somewhat i think could get a few minutes again in the regular season and not kill. You hopefully is okay after Yudo gaza bouquet got ejected for hard fall on his head on the floor yesterday. He'll definitely get some time in the regular season. Because like you said those guys are going to miss some games especially without condensed. The schedule is but just yeah long-term or in the playoffs you want to be going with those three wings with the majority of those minutes. Is there anything that you'd think. The national conversation hasn't been focusing on enough with these guys going into the season. I mean i think just one thing. That's interesting i think. The sun's moves of late just get panned so quickly. Just because they're the sons and they've been making bad moves for a decade so even like the the discourse around the tj. Warren trade was somewhat frustrating. Just because to me this was a guide seen with the suns for five years. And he's he's a guy who averages just over one assist to game you know and it just was a really bad fit for what money williams wanted to do and even though the trade the value certainly was poor having to give up a second round pick and a high one at that to get rid of him It just made a lot of sense. For what the team needed opening up the salary cap. Space for a tj warrants. Certainly the six for eleven. Dario trade was another one. That actually has worked out really well So i think it's there's a lot of what are the sons doing because they've made a lot of head-scratching moves but then there's so many that have happened in the last two years. And then if you go back and compare the roster from two years ago it's kind of night and day so i think that's one thing that i think that's something that i know's sons. Twitter will often get frustrated with about the the national discourse around the sons that The the kind of looking at the small picture and and james jones has proven himself to be a guy who doesn't care about asset valuation yet at the end of the day. He's got a much better roster. Yeah and they have gotten a lot better and i think you know if you put it to my head on the chris paul trade for example and said okay really the only way we can do. This is by including beaupre and this future pick. That's not entirely lottery protected. Okay i i would end up. I probably would have done that deal anyway. Although they certainly bought high on chris paul. And there's an opportunity cost paying chris. Paul forty million dollars a year and you know there was also the aspect of not using the cap space completing the deal before free agency started again. It would have been nice to keep your optionality open there but as it turned out they got jae crowder and they were able to bring back shards and that was far superior to probably. What they could have done is used that seventeen eighteen million in cap space in the end last summer. You know i think the the move with You know giving up on the anthony. Melton who's looking good and just got a ten million dollar. You're not giving up a second round pick. Yeah giving up a second. Did he get carter back in that. At least who helps you know. And and doing that to get off of josh jackson rather than stretching him as well. I mean this is the head plenty of salary cap space. That could have done that if they really had in. Hindsight you certainly would have rather stretched him. Certainly looking at that move a year out. That certainly was a mistake. Hence me not saying it in my little free so you know you certainly not going to bat a thousand but i think just in the totality of the moves. You know you certainly needed to get off that money. i'm with you. That wasn't the best use. That wasn't the best way to do it. But yeah i think it's. It's people are so quick to criticize things and some of them you know you look at the asset valuation the beginning. It doesn't look too pretty. But i think a lot of the moves of turned out certainly to me the the kaman dario trade. Now that you re signed charlotte's cam. Johnson certainly looks a lot better than what is pre-draft stock was at a looks like a guy definitely deserving of an eleventh overall. Pick even if maybe there were some guys picked after him who also would have been deserving that brandon clark namely. I think things don't look quite so bad. No that's certainly the case and you know we'll see me. Part of why. Johnson was not read it as highly as due to some of his injury issues. Do you help a little bit last year. So it's too early to say on that. And certainly i rather have cam johnson than jerk culver but also kobe. Waimea billable there. And you know we'll see where where he ends up this year. They did need a point guard at that time. Allie of chris. Paul's that doesn't matter as much. But chris ball in theory. You still have the other better dow but you know what are they going to be two years from. Now when booker and eaten are like really in their primes on. They need some less expensive contributors. So i mean my biggest problem is just been that. I thought the execution of the moves if not the initial vision you know as where where they just kind of missed on some cap things then. We'll see what happens with jalen smith the as well. I just taking a center and one who just you already have eight news so much invested with there were interest only so much that you can do at number ten when again you had other guys like halpern on the board. And we'll see whether joan smith better than those guys. Dr jones with is better than those guys. They made the right decision. Obviously right and yeah. And i'm with you there. I thought halliburton would have been the perfect fit. I thought like you said he would have been an awesome fit next booker and could kind of be that next guy once. Paul leaves to to be your backward the future whereas now Probably the biggest hole of going forward is. Where are you going to do at point. Guard after chris paul. You aren't really gonna have any cap space once. You do the bridges and in eight and deals which i expect to be some sort of extension for those two guys at least at this point and so i. I really have no idea how they're going to get that next really really strong. Point guard That you really need to complete the steam. So i think that's kind of the you know we're certainly getting ahead of things for talking about this year. But i think that's the one thing. And then just the roberts server cheap stuff. I think hasn't really been an issue just because the sun's haven't really been in a position to spend a lot of money the last really decade or so They've just been kind of a bad team and it it went to make sense to spend too much or they always seem to have cap space or is only so much you can spend so now. I'm really curious what's going to happen booker's on his max deal of course you've got Paul for two years then. You're gonna have the bridges and eight and extensions coming up. Are you going to be willing to pay those guys. What they're worth and then still keep on using whatever mid-level exception.

"Herro tyler heroes definitely more along the lines of deondraye eight and where. It's like you see them perform in playoffs. And you're like wow this guy's going to be an important piece of this team now and going forward in the future. So that's the little bit of a differentiation for me. The other question that you could look at this as who's been the best rookie in the playoffs. And i think we saw him both in the sixers versus hawks series. It's gotta be yucca. Kong will or therese maxi congo. Probably a smaller impact But he's doing it more consistently whereas tirees maxi basically one six game at one point had looked like he was going to be like should he be starting over. Ben simmons that became it became a little bit easier. Maybe to wanna trade. Ben simmons having seen what tyree maxi did in the playoffs but getting necessarily to tyler heroes level. They weren't doing it every single night. But i've loved. I've seen specifically from a congressman. Like that guy looks like he's going to be ready to start in about a year. yeah he does. Look the stream team is throwing out. Reggie jackson bad one really come on and consistently been putting a point. That's a really good way of of course not a rookie. But in terms of just like opening some is being like damp is reggie jackson actually good cook because we thought maybe he wasn't a good team. Next question here actually involves parents man bone you know dunks terrence was the man in game. Six of the western conference semis. But it seems like not too long ago. He was still an end of the bench player. Someone whose name would trigger a high pitched who on the show. Who do you think can be the next guy go from who status to contributing on a winning team could be your fellow canadian. O'shea bruce brusett who has shown promise at the end of the season. Wow he's deep. Pull their turnip catnip personnel. That's from shank tank in new caledonia. So task a guy that's like you're like who the heck is this guy to contributing on a winning team. That's a tough question. But who would you peg here. Yeah it's definitely tough because you gotta go deep. No one expected terrence man to come up with a thirty nine point blender there. That was a great game was phenomenal to watch him do that. And i assume he is going to be a part of the clippers future. I don't think it's just a flash in the pan right. I'll stay in canada or set with that suggestion there. I'm gonna go with nicole alexander walker of the new orleans pelicans now you may say nah missing. Some people may say knob because those are his initials now. But i believe in him and i also believe that the pelicans maybe moving on from lonzo ball so if you think lonzo ball's gonna stick around. Who does make sense in. Theory around zion williamson. I'm not so sure that david griffin believes that theories don't win basketball games. They didn't win basketball games. This season and i think david griffin looks at even the ben simmons scenario says. I don't know if we're just gonna hitch our our car to to lonzo ball with sign williamson. So let's take a chance on this nikila alexander walker kid who's second year out of virginia tech still got time under his first contract So i i got some hopes there. And i think a probably a a non sexier pick is d anthony. Melton of the memphis grizzlies. Because i just. I just see him as a guy who could contribute like even a campaign rolled on this grizzlies team. That has so many guys that you could probably pick. You could pick grayson allen. You could pick ties john. There's there's a bunch of guys were just good on that team. He shot forty one percent from three last year. So i think the grizzlies just looking at a team. That should be in the postseason next year because they got a job rant leading them they got guys up and down the roster who will be contributing. You look at teams right now. Phoenix the clippers guys who are contributing from one through ten eleven twelve angry grizzlies. Grizzlies have that template going for them. They could be a team next year. That people are saying whoa. This team is in the second round. Small markets all over the place in the nba. Happening right now as we could see with the bucks and hawks pretty big market but yes sons and teams that. You don't necessarily expect to be there so Yeah i i. I've got faith in the grizzlies to be there. Some people in the stream team asking if nicole alexander walker is a shays cousin s. And i'm not proud to say it took me a while to realize there are two names involve one part of the same name and the cousin part. Don't be little longer again. Then i'd like to to keel alexander walker shea killed alexander. There's the but yeah going to be hopefully leading candidate to the olympics. Here coming up quite soon. I know nicole. Alexander walker of courses playing. She is not because of injury but trip back to the question. There that guy that's like. Who is that guy contributing. Do you want to try and predict somebody. Do i have to pick a canadian. Or is this just ultimate. What about this guy conversation. You can go wherever you can pick any any player. Okay patrick williams. He was a second team all rookie. This year. the balls will be in the playoffs next year. And he's gonna shoot more than seven times in a game. But i mean if osha bruce. Is the suggestion here. You can literally just pick anybody so okay i will pick in orlando magic and i will scroll canadian. Coal anthony anthony. That's a good one. He's gonna hit a game winner in the playoffs at some point. Market down really got an answer. Well i continue to be intrigued by anthony. Simon's adding Portland hit that began. Game against the pacers where he hit the nine consecutive threes and his numbers did actually take a tiny drip down this season. But he's three. Point percentage went up shooting. Forty three percent from downtown. So he's definitely a got that ability to shoot three and spread the floor and give the blazes something but he has to obviously work on his consistency..

I think he would be ideal for this team and they could be realistically had for the tax do that. He could be in. Play there even though i think. He's definitely worth more than that. But this is very very deflated Marketplace so i think that's probably that's the first thing that comes to mind for me for sure The anthony melton with would have been somebody. But i just don't think there's any way that memphis let's some go and he's restricted. So i i just don't think they're going to be able to pick up for them. Maybe if they want to throw the full emily. I don't maybe maybe memphis are willing to pay nine million dollars and somebody who's probably going to be a bench player. Maybe a starter. But that's another guy that i've always been really high on. But i think that 'cause i mean he's melton present something kinda similar to new smith and i think that knee smith is good and ready enough for the league that they can count on him to be part of the rotation right away. But i'm a little skeptical that he's going to be a good.

Now know of hers that Guy. Yeah Kinda sneaky good pick and roll player. But not a good enough pick and role player to get downhill right? Like it's more a similar. You know not a similar picking player to trade necessarily. But just in the way that like you know they use change of pace and you know they've really good footwork and can get into the paint and then make like a kickout passer shoot a little floater like you know it's it's not that like downhill pick and roll threat that I think Atlanta could use an like D Anthony Mountain Sorta Kinda does a good job getting downhill but like isn't quite a good finisher to really. Be of concern to opposing teams. The other option here is obviously the number six overall pick, and if I was them, I'd be looking heavily at tires Halliburton because. Halliburton. Brings you a lot of what the idea de Anthony Melton. Is Plus just being bigger six-foot-five. Guy. A guy that can guard both ones and twos really really good unselfish teammate makes all of the guys around him. Better just through his sheer presence can play in pick and rolls the secondary playmaker. Honestly can be a backup point guard whenever you want to take trae out. It's just kind of a perfect fit for everything that they need to bring that roster in that backward together. I'm interested to see if they look into moving that pick though to be honest another guy by the way that I think makes a lot of sense for them. If they were to trade down like if they could move number six down to number fourteen or something like at Boston wanted to trade up. Or number thirteen and try to get a player. In there in Atlanta..

"So they don't really have a big. Leap I, they might not know they. All they have is the number forty pick from the Phoenix Suns after the Melton Trade. Okay. So I guess, I wanNA start looking before we get into free agents. Justice winslow next season I mean he's obviously part of that crowd trade never played from this and he's just he's super interesting as does many ways you could deploy him. You can use them as a backup four and champion playmaker off the bench You can start them for defensive reasons. He asked offensive potential has always shown it, but he has essential start off the season ours career as known as infant soccer Mexican slips. But what do you project your role that season? He's going to be a starter at least he should be if if Joe Mullen ex is running the ministries, he'd be a starter and I think he will be they had big plans for am even in the bubble of before he got hurt again and it sucks when a guy snake bit and none of these injuries are connected to the hip displacement isn't connected to the knee issue that he added the back issue that he had. No, it's all just random things and you. Hope that he can kind of get past that I love that trade by the way. Yeah. What what Jae crowder became in Miami is nowhere near what he was in Memphis even if even even solid is a perfect tradeable sides license, but my point, I, agree with you still. But my point is he shot twenty nine percent from three in Memphis like and he shot more than Jaren Jackson Junior. Did he got more than Dillon Brooks did and he shot twenty nine percent so Memphis some members love him in his leadership qualities and all that stuff. But I was I was very happy to see that they got justice winslow for essentially nothing and no disrespect, the J. and Solomon. Solomon Hill was Memphis grizzly because he was better than miles plumlee That's the only reason he was there. And Andre with AL obviously never had any interest and being with the organization. So they essentially got just as winslow for Jae crowder and I'll take that trade hundred times out of one hundred I see them kicking the can down the road on this free agency class They'll have the mid level exception accenture essentially and they have to handle business with the Anthony Melton depending on what he gets in restricted free agency. Those are the two questions for Memphis moving forward.

"The hawks. I don't know you you tell me. Is it better. Is it better for you to not have to see Agent mulder and the golden state warriors to take no smiling each de ngelo russell Crap on some of the guys are actually bad moulder. It's gonna be good. You mark my words okay. Although calling him agent moulder is is quite salt. So the hawks already filled one weakness with cappella right. There centers were the worst in the league hands down and now they're not but at the wing i think again. You know a little bit of my charlotte conversation. Goes here where. I'm worried about the hawks. Because i think they're too focused on making the playoffs this year and not focused enough on what on what they look like one to three years out. That said i do think they can thread the needle little bit and try to get some guys in their in their twenties. Who are who are young enough to still be part of what this team could be going forward and try to find some of those younger wing players Who could maybe help them a little more now but still be a piece of what they're doing going forward. I think that's a that's a. That's i mean that's the name of the game for them in free agency. I don't think they're going to be doing as many deals this year where they get paid to take on assets. So it's going to be. It's going to be more about them hunting for talent and bringing guys in and i see a couple of guys who might be interesting for them. Continues will pope. Who is from georgia and could be an unrestricted free agent. I think he'd be sort of interesting. Maliki beasley. I think would be interesting. He's another georgia guy. Although he's restricted minnesota having given up a first for him. They'll probably try pretty hard to retain him. So i don't know how well that will work out the anthony. Melton would you. Would you make a run at him Yeah that's administering one. I think really a. I wouldn't even be and you've kind of luted to this. I wouldn't even be focused on owen. What's the fit with john collins.

"That I'm most interested in this offseason. His play. COINCIDED WITH MEMPHIS turning their entire season around I. Don't think that's an accident. He is a restricted free agent in Memphis. Just given that they have John. Maria given the tie Jones already and given that. You know I don't know that they can afford to drop like a crazy amount of money to keep the anthony melting while maintaining the flexibility. That I think they should be trying to maintain going forward. I think that the Anthony can make himself a lot of money if he has a really great eight games and then a solid playoff series. What kind of what kind of money you expecting other teams to offer if he has a strong little run here? I mean if you're Atlanta like the number I throughout for Atlanta was like four, fifty five, which is too much for Anthony Milton, but if you're getting over pay to get a guy like him. You overpay to get a guy like him. And you overpaid to get a guy who fits the age curve age timeline of your team, and who fits with trae young who fits with Kevin hurt her who fits with every every single thing that you need on your roster. You need a backup point guard. He's a little bit better at the two obviously. You can play him as a backup point guard next to someone like a Kevin Heard, or who can also take on some pick and roll possessions and a camera issue I think they hope can take on some pick and roll possessions long-term. I'M GONNA. Try Well. Right yeah, and you can play him next the trae young as well as we've seen this year with John. Moran so I I'm terrified of a big offer sheet from Atlanta if I'M MEMPHIS BECAUSE I I don't know that they should. Break the bank in the way that Atlanta showed given that they have more depth there. Right I I. Do know that Memphis internally values anthony, velten. Highly. That trade is referred to as the D. Anthony Melton trade. It is like that Josh. Jackson was the name that people knew because where he was drafted, but that trade was about the Anthony Mountain so. I do think that they went institute that with clear is. knowing that if if things panned out for them, it meant it panned out for the Anthony Melton to to get a good deal, so I think when you're memphis and you're not really going to attract a bunch of free agents anyway. You probably are just as likely to to say you know what we'll overpay. Now to keep this guy here. As Atlanta is I think that you know this is a team. Obviously thinks it's to be able to compete next year, right? They look at what they're doing. This year. They made the play offs, or at least it seems like they're going to make the playoffs, so I just don't know if you're gonNA. Let anyone Take that guy away from you, he he's important to their plans. I don't know that. Man It's tough. That's a really tough decision. Can you get Josh Jackson for a little bit cheaper? Maybe in Josh kind of provide. A very different skill set, but a similar amount of havoc and transition play that makes the Anthony is special as he is right. Saying, it's playmaking from Josh actions some playmaking yet like it's. I'm not saying that. Some incredible player, but like he is a really good player..

I wanna see you mess with a tough guy. So I mean, I don't think they have any what strikes me whenever you see video like this Gordon Hayward had this soldier George had this Alex Smith has this right now Redskins quarterback. He's not gonna be back next year. When is men went down, however, many years ago that was and Lawrence Taylor is going like this get a doctrine here because the bone sticking through the guy's skin at that point other players when you see them turn away. You know, how serious this is. And they're thinking themselves my God, this could have been me as well. That is that is the surest sign that something desperately has gone wrong.

In fact, he had surgery today. No nerve damage muscle damage coming back. This news. Not by the way. Paul George was at two hundred fifty seven days he came back late in the season knowing that he was gonna play about a month and heading to another season.

"When we see something like that happen. I haven't been on the floor. Someone had a gruesome injury like that. However as Daimler reference. I remember the Paul George injury happening. I remember the Shaun Livingston happening as a member of the clippers those are the two to stand out, and it's really unfortunate for Portland team or put themselves in a really good playoff position for what it's worth we see Paul George now a couple years removed from that the bones heal. That's what he has. He has fractures in the leg the bones heal. They come back stronger in the end and Georgia's now playing better than ever. So we certainly hope for that for nook. I was in the. In for Shaun Livingston that was covering the clippers for Fox Sports west at the time. For the NBA. And I just remember that this is a young man who had such a bright career ahead of them. Now, look what he's able to do. I mean, even this late stage in the game with the warriors. He's come back. He's reinvented himself. And that was as gruesome as an injury. I think I've ever seen in person. So we certainly hope it which ultimately will come back. But now, let's take it to the season where he certainly isn't going to play for them again this year, and they're a team no one pays attention to. But they're actually very good. How would you describe what this laws means for them? I'll give you another team. Also that people don't pay attention to the Indiana Pacers ends up happening is you look at the conference standings in the east in the west. Both of those teams will be in four five matches Indiana's going to be without their best player. Victor Deepal Portland is going to be without their best interior player in nurtured. Fortunately, that may put both of those squads positions to where they may not be able to advance because those losses are really going to be significant blazers got swept out of the first round a year ago. What do you make of the loss of of their big, man? Well, we'll get hurt some more at the offense. The numbers will. Tell you to hurt some more at the offensive end than it does the defensive end is thirty percent higher rate at the offense of and then ease of the defensive end floor. So that doesn't concern me as much based on the fact that I think there's other guys that can step up with their offense, but his size his stature everything that you'd ask for a playoff series. It is going to be a detriment for this team. They need CJ McCollum to come back. He's been out with a spray knee. He's do back sometime hopefully later on this week. And this is why you bow genus cantor from the knit. Yeah. He's going to come into supplemented out of that office in every bonding as world tough moment to watch. So obviously, first and foremost, you wish him the best as he will go through the recovery here. And again, I think there is evidence to suggest that ultimately he will come back, and we'll be generally able to play. And maybe as good as ever now on a show you something else that happened because it was weird the sun jazz sons atrocious, and maybe never worse. They've last night. But Devon Booker remarkably at twenty seven points in the first half these are third quarter highlights he would score twenty points in the quarter. But his team was down twenty and twenty five points. Is this is going along really dubious to see a guy score fifty nine points. Yet is team lose by thirty points. Overall. No one else and his team had double digits the next highest score was Andrei who would score nine. Now. I want to show you what happens in the fourth quarter here. Right. So the Suns are down twenty three and that's Booker going over fifty Trumper. There gave him fifty one later. He's got fifty three points. These drive in score. Ultimately, he's going to go to the bench with fifty six points with just over five minutes remaining. Okay. No way. He's coming back. Just under three minutes. They put him back in with fifty six. He'd make a foul shot to get the fifty seven make that to get to fifty nine. So watch what happened to your twenty seconds to go. Keep an eye on Booker off of free throw. The jazz are going to commit a foul away from him. They're going to foul the Anthony Melton..
