The one non-Thunder representative being from the Knicks is what makes this art.

Edit: responding to this post.

So a question: If you buy a second-round pick, does that somehow count against salary cap or is there some penalty? There must be something, right? Else it seems the rich teams could just buy up the second round.

There's a limit on cash that can be sent out and received in trades per league year. Think it's like $5 million.

Oh my. The Warriors have to be thinking "we can't waste a Curry year". Wonder if they are going to lean towards a trade either using their pick or separately for future picks to put together a contender in case Klay is out for awhile.
I think that was their thinking before the injury. Now they gotta be looking towards 2021/2022 (this is all on the likely faulty assumption that Klay is done for the year). A team of Curry, Wiggins, Green is not good.

I just read for Thompson that he has a torn achilles tendon. Poor guy.

I love the draft, and I love thinking Trader Danny is going to make a bunch of moves.

I expect 3 picks.

Packing 10+ people into a small room, what could go wrong? NBA draft everyone!

Edit: referring to the views into the top picks' houses.

I like what Edwards can do, but I am concerned that if he doesn't have top-end talent, if he can fit in as a role player when his mentality is to be an alpha-scorer.

Based on that footage his best highlights are in cartoon, that doesn't make me feel too high on Edwards.

After gettin burned with Wiggins and Bennett at 1, will the Wolves go with the uber-athletic choice again with Edwards, or pick someone with a better feel for basketball, like Ball.

They’re going Edwards. Why end the personnel shit show that’s been going on since the KG trade?

Anthony Bennett wasn't drafted by the Minnesota Timberwolves

I like Wiseman for Golden State. Most potential in the draft, potential great fit in Golden State. Hope he gets a chance to succeed in that environment and isn't traded away to a hopeless franchise.
