1. Ayton and Doncic, as the draft approaches I expect these two to separate from the group as Tier 1

2. Jackson and Bamba, two potentially elite defenders who fit the modern NBA

3. Bagley and Porter, Bagley could go higher depending on team fit and Porter could go higher if his health checks out and he plays well to end this season

4. Young and Carter, Carter will be the consolation prize big man of the early lottery Young could go high if a team with a PG need is drafting 3-6

5. Bridges and Bridges, both players will have a lot of positional value as solid rational wings

6. Knox and Williams, Knox will be a higher upside project for a team in the later lottery while williams is more of a NBA ready defensive big

7. Sexton and J Porter
, Sexton could be a pg of the future or 6th man scoring option for a team will playoff aspirations next season. J Porter is a very young project big who plays like he is much older then 18.

1. Ayton & Bagley

2. Doncic & Porter

3. Bamba & Young

4. Jackson Jr. & Carter

5. Sexton & Knox

6. Miles Bridges & R. Williams

7. Gilgeous-Alexander & Mikal Bridges


Two choices - the pain of discipline or the pain of regret. The pain of regret hurts a whole lot more.

I think a lot of you guys are missing the boat on Doncic. Kid is mature, an exceptional shooter, great passer, great scorer, and is succeeding in an environment that is much higher level of talent than the NCAA. He will be an excellent player in today's NBA.

I hope you're right! 

The more talent in the league the better.  I hope his talents translate and he's a superstar version of Hayward.  There are definitely some poor teams that have enough athletes and could use what he brings.  I still think at draft time everyone will be lured by potential of the other top 5 or 6 guys in this draft.  The top of this year's draft and all of next season will be very interesting!

1 and 2:  Ayton and Porter
3 and 4:  Bagley and Doncic
5 and 6:  Young and Bamba
7 and 8:  Jackson Jr. and Mikal Bridges
9 and 10:  Sexton and Carter Jr.
11 and 12:  Knox and Lonnie Walker
13 and 14:  Gilgeous Alexander and Khyri Thomas


Moved Doncic up to 4....I think GM's will have cold feet on him 1-3 but can afford the risk at 4.
Reached for Khyri Thomas

1..SUNS--Doncic (or Trade Ayton for Doncic plus X)  How nice is it when your primary ball handler   
    knows exactly what the coach wants to do, and has the skills to sell it to the rest of the team.

2..KINGS--Ayton (ends up here by pick or by Suns trading down)

3..HAWKS--Bagley   close call over Porter

4..GRIZZLIES--Porter   proves himself in draft process

5..MAVS--Jackson Jr.      Smith and Jackson book ends....

6..MAGIC--Trae Young    Gamble on PG of the future

7..BULLS--Mikal Bridges      over Carter by a smidgeon     

8..CAVS--Carter Jr.           hoping the new Al Horford can really be as good as Al Horford

9..KNICKS--Bamba        they wanted Sexton but have to gamble on the faller

10..SIXERS--Sexton        just in case you know what

11..HORNETS--Miles Bridges      even though he didn't play in Carolina

12..CLIPPERS--Knox       potential to play with given pick 13 is theirs too.

13..CLIPPERS--Zhaire Smith (over Alexander so as not to upset Austin...looks good too)

14..NUGGETS--Gilgeous Alexander   (they need Robert Williams too but can only pick one guy)
