If they get lucky and Stauskas falls to them, the Wolves are pretty high on him. If he's not there, I'd be looking at guys like Adreian Payne, Rodney Hood or Zach LaVine
I can't speak for Nate, but I don't think I'll have a good idea until a few picks away. Even then, there's a lot of uncertainty.
Sitting at Hubbard Headquarters ready to cap a big sports day. Soccer, baseball and now NBA draft.
No sign of Sid yet. When there is, over/under on length of mustard stain on his shirt is 1.75 inches.
Payne passes the suit test, which apparently has become a thing now...
What Philly ends up doing at No. 3 could have a major influence what happens throughout the rest of the lottery picks, especially if they pass on Embiid.
Name me the last draft involving a Minnesota sports team where there was anticipation about the draft but it had nothing to do with the selection process? Or little to do with it. The 2009 NFL draft comes to mind because the Vikings gave up their first-round pick to get Jared Allen but fans were still super excited by the trade.
Here's why LaVine should worry you: 8 points combined in his 3 NCAA games. He'd get good run in the D-League. He's a clear project.
Nick: not if the return is only Klay and Lee. Return would have to be more than that.
LaVine is undoubtedly a raw prospect. He had a solid finish to the season, but for the most part he's unproven. You're banking a lot on untapped potential by taking him at 13.
Pete: he'd get his win now guys back in the Love trade and will chase Livingston, Blake, etc. with the mid-level. Would have enough win now guys to take a project.
John: Re: Embiid -- I don't see Love landing in Boston.
Mr. Mister -- they have reached out to agents asking about draft and stashing. Figure they'll take one college guy among the 3 picks. Easier to call when we see who's left. Russ Smith and Keith Appling are two names to monitor. Iowa State guys -- Hoiberg connection -- worth watching too.
JZHoodie: Still say 75/25 or 80/20 Love is elsewhere -- probably Golden State -- Opening Night.
GeraldGlass: he'd be my pick. They also like Harris and Payne. Really like Stauskas and McDermott. But those two should be long gone by 13.
Anybody think Stauskas will still be there when the Wolves are selecting?
I don't think James Young is going 13th, but word is when the Wolves asked players they worked out to name one player who impressed in other workouts they were at, Young's name was mentioned a lot. He cut his workouts short the last 2 weeks after a minor car accident.
