    Wonder if that changes Davis' mindset at all.

    Draft was insane

    If AD still wants out the Pelicans have crazy leverage.  They could end up with #3 from NY or #4 from LA

    Think they could get a better deal from the Celtics?

    He’s either joining the duo that swept Portland last year or joining Jrue and a bunch of young talent.   How are the Knicks a better spot? :lol:

    CP3 didn't want to stay in NOLA.
    AD doesn't want to stay in NOLA.

    There is a reason that Zion was whisked out of the draft ceremony so quick.  He doesn't want to play in NOLA.

    Not sure why no one likes it there?

    So My Knicks predictions last night were as follows:

    1-Knicks will not get #1 pick
    2-AD is not coming to KNicks
    3-Kyrie is not coming to Knicks
    4-Kawhi is not going to Knicks

    So far I got one right.

    Not exactly going out on a limb, are you?

    I wonder how much that will cost Zion in endorsements over his career by not going to NYC?  $20M?

    Like Paul Pierce, it's the truth...

    Pelicans also gained a ton of leverage in trade value for AD.  I still think you need to trade someone who quit on you but the fact that they can project he might come back will maximize the value. Might strike a good deal from NYC as they may panic and sell the farm.

    Celtics have young players who already have some seasoning and next year's Memphis first rounder to offer(top 6 protected, becomes unprotected in 2021).
    So question would be would N'awlins prefer #3 or #4 this year or a couple of established players like Brown and/or Tatum (plus probably Al Horford to make salaries match, and he would be on an expiring contract, a valuable commodity at a 30 million salary slot).
    They say this is basically a 3 player draft, so Lakers aren't exactly sitting pretty at 4. They do have some young players, but Pelicans turned down a package of essentially all of them at deadline. Does adding #4 to that group tip the scale?

    Would they take #3 from NYK and have picks 1 and 3? Knicks would still have to sweeten that deal and they don't have a lot of sugar in the cupboard.

    And the wild card of course would be does AD change his mind now that he'll have Zion alongside him.

    Its a wide open scenario at this point.

    This weekend we rock Portland

    Knicks would be signing him up for only 2 years.  If Davis doesn't like it there either then it would put them further into a tailspin.

    The Knicks have regained dumpster fire status.

    If you listen to the average delusional Knicks fan they were on top of the world until draft time, lol!

    14% people... 14%.

    You should have heard the grandiose possibilities the sports talk radio people were throwing out there.
  • Jason PJason P Posts: 18,134
    It could be that AD is this generations Dwight Howard.  A great player that somehow makes your team worse.  Considering Boogie couldn’t push them over the edge I’m not sure how Zion would.  Hard to tell since Pelicans games are never televised.  That might be the main reason no one wants to play for them.  

    I think they they try to get the 2 or 3 pick in a trade. 
  • tempo_n_groovetempo_n_groove Posts: 20,437
    So votes for the biggest dumpster fire!

    Lakers or Knicks?  I actually have them in a tie right now.  The knicks won't fail me though and soon take back that #1 spot.

    Good take.

    I like that thinking.

    I don't think Memphis is trading the #2 pick.

    Agreed.  They'll keep that and Knicks will try and get rid of 3 for AD.

    Unfortunately for you, Dolan is the dumpster wildcard that will keep NYC the keepers of the fire.  Lakers have had a bad year but Dolan has been making idiotic decisions for the last decade and I don’t see that trend changing.  Worst case is that NYC trades the farm for AD and give him a supermax and then his leg explodes and he and Bobby Bonilla end up sharing a flat and cash checks for the next decade.

    Good news for you!  At least Lebron can be cut loose if he continues to have his ego expand at the same rate his physical skills decrease

    NOLA’s finally in good shape.  Got the best GM on the market. The best medical staff. And the 1st pick. 

    Whether AD stays or goes we’re going to have a lot of talent.  Id be happy taking #3 from the Knicks and turning into the next Great young team

    Apparently you've been drinking the same delusional water the Knicks have.

    Lol  Pels hold all the cards.  Lakers, Knicks, and Celtics will battle it out with offers.   

    Im looking forward to preordering my Zion jersey :D
  • Jason PJason P Posts: 18,134
    If Zion hasn’t hired an agent, he technically can return to Duke next year.  It would be super dumb but he could if he wanted to.  

    If if it did happen the NBA would need to strip New Orleans of the franchise and give it to Seattle
