Also this would be alot more fun if there was a more than 2% chance if it happening. Maybe Ainge will go big and put together a Rozier/Sac package for a big that falls into that back half if the lottery. A young big with length is really the last piece we need in our rebuild

I might literally have a heart attack if we could snag Ayton in the draft. Thatíd be too perfect.

I have been wondering about potentially moving up to the mid lottery area for a big if the pick doesnít convey. I have my eyes on Bamba, as I could see a couple of teams passing on him or not being thrilled about taking him.

Depending on the team, I wonder if something like the Sacramento pick, our pick this year, and Rozier (I might even add the Clippers pick if need be, too) would be enough to move up to around the 5-8 range to select Bamba. He needs some development time, but heíd fill a really big need at C for us for a long time moving forward, along with having the potential to deal with Embiid down the road after putting on size.

Imagine a lineup of Kyrie, Brown, Hayward, Tatum, and Bamba once Horfordís contract expires!  :o

This years draft has a lot of cream at the top. It's going to be near impossible to move into the top half of the draft.

I seriously would take Mo Bamba second behind Deandre Ayton.
His wingspan + fluidity for a big man are just ridiculus, furthermore he is a very smart defender and can defend every position. I know his offense is a work in progress, but his jumper looks smooth so I'm optimistic.
If he puts it all together he could be perennial DPOY who can space the floor and finishes in the paint.
He could become the next Rudy Gobert, Dikembe Mutumbo, Manute Bol or dare I say Bill Russel?  :o

Ainge would trade down to 4 or 5 and get another lottery pick next year.

While I think Doncic is the best player in the draft and would love him or Ayton, if I'm being honest I could see Danny drafting Mo Bamba because he's already a defensive nightmare for teams and he can become Dikembe 2.0.  That being said we all know Danny isn't conventional and would probably draft someone we'd never expect LOL.

That high in the draft Ainge is picking best player available. If he feels Doncic is the best player, he is not gonna care if Mamba has Dikembe potential or Ayton has Towns potential or Jackson has Chris Webber with better defense potential. If he feels Doncic has higher upside and will be the best player, that's who he is taking.

I'll say it again if Ayton is gone Michael Porter, Jr. is the correct pick.

Does anyone actually believe that this will happen? I mean, I know that the lottery machine loves the Lakers, but still. It would take a Derrick Rose to Chicago let's say "miracle" ;) ::) for any of this to actually occur, lol.

That said, it would be beyond hilarious if the pick were to somehow convey, but I doubt it.

Nope.  The lottery is super fixed, proven by science.  Cleveland hasn't had #1 in a while, right?  Once LBJ leaves they'll be due.

Imagine the pick conveys.

And when you look at our roster. We'd have Kyrie/Hayward/Horford. Brown/Tatum/Rozier. And now you add one of those 5 or 6 big talents from this draft.

Dynasty, baby. Multiple titles for years to come.  :angel:
