Assuming Ayton is the #1 pick (as he is in most mocks) personally keep switching between Bagley and Doncic. Bagley is a great switch defender and all around offensive player, but Doncic dominated euro league which is harder than d1... And he is also a well rounded player

The other option I thought was we can Trade down a few spots for a future pick and select the available player out of bamba, jackson,  or Carter. The rookie contact would be slightly cheaper but these players are still great options. And getting a future pick is Ainges favorite hobby

Doncic. Not even close. We're talking about proven elite professional basketball player.

I agree. the guy is unquestionably going to be a great nba player, and would be nice for him to learn the art and handles of the elite point guard from kyrie. Doncic with a little kyrie handles and a "little marcus smart defensive instinct" might be a beast.

Yep. He looks like hes going to be monstrously good. Already is in probably the second best league in the world, and hes a teenager.

I think I would prefer to trade down, get the lower $ contract, and pick up Porter or Bamba. I am still pretty sure Porter will be the best player in the draft, but that's probably just because I am stuck on last year's rankings.

It looks like Donic to me too but I'm sure Danny and his scouts know best.

If we retain Smart then trade down. If Smart is gone go with Doncic
Mock "trade deadline" team: Blazers.
PG-Lillard, Napier, Baldwin
SG-McCollum, Connaughton, Wilcox
SF-Fournier, Harkless, Layman
PF-Aminu, Davis
C- Nurkic, Leonard, Collins

I'd love Doncic if he's available, but part of me wonders how he'd fit with Hayward, Tatum, and Brown already having the 3 wing spots locked down.

I realize that can be classified under 'first world problems', and you're probably better off to just take the the BPA and figure it out later, but eventually someone would likely end up unhappy with their minutes and role.

I'd almost be inclined to think if Boston ends up with the #2 pick a trade down a few spots for additional assets might not be the better choice.  Either that, or use the #2 pick in a package for a superstar.

Ayton is like the perfect addition to this current young core. Id try to trade up and even give up the Memphis pick to move up a slot or two to select Ayton.

If not, take Doncic and figure it out later.  Hes unbelievably good at basketball and a proven winner at only 19.  His resume is insane and his basketball iq is generational.

Based on the return Boston just got for trading out of the #1 pick, I don't see the Cetlics having the disposable assets necessary to trade up to #1.

its an interesting proposition. We have 2 to 4 first round picks in 2019, and 1 first rounder in 2019. Our team could get clogged with too many players soon so consolidation might be needed. We have multiple backup guards and a bench full of players.

I'm not 100% convinced Ayton will be the #1 pick. He's the smart bet, but it wouldn't shock me if Doncic is the pick. Assuming Ayton is off the board I'd consider Jaren Jackson, perfect modern NBA big with shot blocking and 3 pnt ability.

He looks well-suited to be a PG.  With Kyrie's injury history and the upcoming FA of Smart/Rozier, he'd be a nice luxury to bring along slowly.  Maybe he'll even get the Yips.  We'd then have a core that could functional well on or off the ball, too.

Yeah, he could be awesome. Was arguably the best rim protector in the NCAA and will still be 18 come draft day. Bucket loads of potential
