think the best Okafor option is to trade him for a future first and a player like Bradley. Future BK pick & Bradley. Thanks, Danny.

He's awesome in transition, too. Flashes of Wall and Wade (I know I know). Three-point shot is a work in progress but only 4% lower than Dunn last year.

Tenacious att-y-tood, as well

I think Kris Dunn is going to be a star. I would try and get a little something extra from boston in the deal like swap 16 and 24 as well or something.....

people say Jamaal Murraay a better fit with simmons because of the shooting ability and I can see that but Dunn has the higher upside and can D it up.

I am on the Dunn/Simmons bandwagon then add complementary shooters

I had a meeting at the Pentagon with lots of generals. They were like from a movie. Better looking than Tom Cruise & stronger.

this is a workable roster. defense first and you can concentrate on the offensive end and developing shooting. I mean, Brown is supposedly the development guru.


We still have Grant.

Glad to hear BC talking about stopgaps. We're gonna have two high picks again next year, no reason to force anything.

Dunn will never make an All-Star game and though IMO the plurality outcome is that he's a functional starter throughout his rookie K, i also think he has plausible downside and is probably a guy you don't want to lock up long term. Rodney Stuckey is my comp. Taek over

Why not swing for the fences? Could a combination of Okafor or Noel plus picks pry Jimmy Butler from da Bulls?

Yeah, not seeing that at all. Wade is kind of a one-off player to me in recent memory

solid body, long arms, not an elite shooter but good at drawing and finishing through contact, pretty good defense (not talking 2016 wade).

i'm not saying the guy is a HOFer, but I think comparing him to a guy that isn't a real starter is a bit much.

i think he'll be better than one of the top 25 pgs in the league.

Devin Harris made an all star team.

Dunn is much bigger than Harris?
