Karl-Anthony Towns, Wolves 'not in a good place internally,' could come up in trade discussions, per @ZachLowe_NBA, @WindhorstESPN https://t.co/5HkOgicOp7 https://t.co/Of3xvOnBjO

From our interview with Suns GM Ryan McDonough at the Draft Combine: Phoenix “certainly open” to trading the No. 1 overall pick. https://t.co/jC9TyAKH6l

https://www.hoopsrumors.com/2018/05/gri ... -pick.html

The buzz at this week’s draft combine in Chicago suggests that the Grizzlies are a prime candidate to trade a high pick next month, according to Sean Deveney of The Sporting News. Deveney hears that the Grizzlies’ preference would be to move up to No. 1 or No. 2 to grab one of 2018’s top prospects, but a trade down is probably more likely.

“If you have someone you like in the first few picks, they’re the first call you’d make,” one general manager said of the Grizzlies, per Deveney. “They obviously were the most disappointed with the way the lottery went and the options they have now. It seems like they want to try to turn that pick into something else.

“Everyone’s going to talk before the draft, of course,” the GM continued. “But Memphis, I think they’re the ones who are going to be more ready to do something than others.”

I understand from Memphis point of view, we could go the Brooklyn route to get that 4th pick by acquiring Chandler Parsons and his horrible contract. I wouldn't give up the 9th pick though, I would just give up Kanter, Burke, and a 2nd round pick. Hey, it's Dolan's money, and a 4th and 9th pick would really get knicks fans excited, especially looking at the progress from Boston & Sixers young players.

Yeah, that ain't happening without the 9th pick and they probably ask for our 2nd rounder as well, which Id probably do.

And I'd take Bagley with the pick

Sources: Charlotte traded Dwight Howard to Brooklyn for Timofey Mozgov, two second-rounders and cash considerations.

Jordan makes Dolan look like Red Auerbach..

He is awful...

How do you move an expiring productive Howard for Mozgov,a bum with another year??

Does he think he's going to strike gold with 2 picks in the 40's???

Dam, what was Perry doing,unless he is on full tank mode

HAHAHAHA! That makes NO sense. And Mozgov's contract sucks. Mitch bringing back his bad deal to his new team?

What on Earth is Charlotte thinking??

Far worse,if we are serious about the number 4 pick,why didn't we do that trade???

I hate to say it,but Moz is the one contract that makes Noah's deal look appetizing

I read where Nets will have 2 max slots next season and all their 1st rounders after the ‘18 Draft.

Wow.

All true but Howard is a total waste of potential. Hasnt worked on his game in ages and doesnt give off the vibe that he cares about winning.

I think Koopa hit the mark. This trade was all about getting rid of Dwight. Same scenario as Atlanta where they were happy to take on a terrible contract just to get Dwight and his farts out of the locker room.

Peeps luv to laugh at how bad the Nets are but that was a different regime. These guys are doing a lot of little, smart moves and have the team poised to make a big jump quickly. If the Knicks were to miss on this year's draft, we could see the Nets quickly become the next fast moving team in the east.

If that were to happen....imagine if the Nets were to build a winner before the Knicks after seemingly giving up every pick they have had for years.

I know they don't want to tank necessarily, but if they were to really stink it up next year and get the top pick (or close) it could be a quick turnaround....very quick.
