    I hope they can change PHX's mind about Ennis. I'm kinda excited about Bruno
    If Lowry leaves a nice threat of a max offer to Bledsoe, maybe?

    So, putting pieces together, Raptors wanted Ennis and hoped to do the Salmons trade to get Caboclo at 22. Makes sense.
    Masai treats the Knicks like they are his personal farm team system, where he can cultivate assets for the future. It's not right or fair, but he's THE WARLORD

    Damn, Masai's plan was foiled. It looks brilliant actually... I am so sad it didn't work out.

    That made sense.

    What I don't get is that if Ennis was their top priority, and Phoenix wanted a PG, why not draft Napier @ #20 and flip him with a 2nd round pick for Ennis? They had 10 minutes to discuss options with Phoenix... I've had faith in the past, including being supportive of the JV pick, but this one scares me... and yes, I hope to be proven wrong!

    Maybe Phx thought more of ennis than Napier?

    Also wouldn't be surprised if Houston was team looking to take Bruno at 25

    One thing I like is the sense of mystery Bruno brings. These days all the picks are tweeted out before they happen and everything is known about their games but this pick legitimately fooled 99% of fans and experts.

    Also... People. The youngest player in the draft was Bruno. Born 1995... What does this mean? HE IS NOT DONE GROWING. 6'9'' now? 6'11'' later. And guess what? He has only played ball for 5 years, and shoots 3 pointers well. Not even Giannis can shoot well. He may be under-publicized (was given a draft promise, did not work out for any team, comes from poor family, etc) but his upside includes these abilities:

    1. 6'9''... 6'11'' ??
    2. Quick and agile body, good leaping ability, good balance
    3. Crazy (really crazy) wingspan
    4. Good Shooting ability, stretching to the 3
    5. 18 years old
    6. Defensive potential is huge
    7. Humble, has a drive to succeed, probably will be great for our locker room!
    8. Spurs were interested in him

    Could be we want to have his rights now, so that we can begin a rookie season with Bruno at age 20. From the age of 18 to 20, stars can either go from unknown to first overall, or from first overall to undrafted. What if Bruno projects to be a Lottery pick in 2016? To get him with a 20th pick now could be the longest long con in NBA history. Only time will tell.
    yep. i don't think people here really understand the ceiling on this guy.

    I'm warming up to the Caboclo pick given he was their target at 22. Still shocked that they actually took him, especially with a couple of other highly speculated options on the board. (Anderson, Capela)

    More like 100%, I bet Chad Ford and everyone else flipped their shit when they say him picked.

    Why do I sense a Canadian being picked @ #59... just a feeling.
