My gut says the same thing now. Keegan at 4, Ivey at 5. That should be fun on the Twitter!

What an absolute waste of the leverage at 4. If they do this, it confirms the Kings have no semblance of vision for this franchise and instead live in regressive mediocrity.

Disagree. If nobody is willing to pay your price for #4, then take the guy you think is best. If Keegan is their guy, and they don’t think he’ll be there at #5-#8 then you pick him.

Agreed. But I think if they choose Murray over Ivey, Monte be damn sure he picks the correct guy just like Toronto passing up on Suggs to select Barnes which turns out to be the correct choice.

Nope, Murray won’t be drafted at 4, game theory calls for taking whatever you can get to move back to 5. I don’t care if it’s three second rounders. We need to take advantage of this opportunity.

Theory says to do that, yes. But it also assumes Detroit will give you something in return. Detroit might call Sacramento’s bluff and not offer anything, in which case Sacramento should take whoever they want.

Exactly. We all pretend as if we know the “proper” order of the draft all the way up until Scottie Barnes goes before Suggs and Giddey jumps to #6.

With all the smokescreen teams put out, the only certainty of getting the guy you want is picking him when you have the chance – draft slot be damned.

Of course you are correct.

If Murray is the guy, then he is the guy, regardless of what all of they guys who are paid to get clicks say on the internet.

Well then we have to ask how much is Keegan really Monte’s guy? Because if the degrees of separation between him and Ivey are minute, you move back. If it’s a steep drop off, then (1) I question Monte’s judgment and (2) fine. But frankly we need to call all these other teams’ bluffs and set a new tone for this franchise. I’m tired of getting bullied around by the league, we own this blacktop, let’s act like it. Second, regardless of what Chris’ models suggest, Ivey has a clutch gene. We need that gene on this team. Murray is not a take the game over kind of player and we desperately need one. If the move is to trade away the 4 for a bunch of firsts next year where the draft is far more talented, then do that. But for us to just say “he’s our guy and we are comfortable at having him at 4” is so Kangz. We aren’t the Spurs in terms of coaching so stop drafting like them.

While I don’t think there’s a steep drop-off between Murray & Ivey, I think there’s definitely a drop-off that puts Murray ahead of Ivey. If the Kings prefer Murray, it’d be ideal if they could move back, but there may not be a deal that makes sense for them.

For what it’s worth (2.5% of squat), I had Suggs lower than Barnes. I just don’t see it with Suggs.

Your game theory is flawed because you are already under the mindset that Murray is not BPA and that Detroit wants Ivey so bad they are willing to give up assets for him. That’s just one scenario of many. For all we know Detroit, Indy, Portland or even more have Murray as their #4.

If Monte has Murray as BPA or even on par with Ivey, don’t fuck around…just draft him.

The last thing you want to do is draft Ivey because you want to trade back for Murray.

I hear Portland and Pacers have Murray as #4. Pistons have Ivey. A trade to Pacers risks losing Murray and Ivey. That only makes sense if Collins comes to Sac.

Pacers want the #4 to pick Murray and so does SAS.
Pistons and others want the #4 to pick Ivey.
If Murray is the Scottie Barnes of this draft, the only safe trade is to Pistons. Do they want Ivey enough to give up anything.?They MAY want Sharpe at 5 if Kings take Ivey, leaving Murray to the Pacers. If Kings take Ivey, could wait and see if Pistons take Sharpe and then trade Ivey to Pacers for #6 but, ah ha! Pacers may not want that.

Honestly, that feels like the obvious and rational outcome. IF the Kings don’t end up getting a great offer for the pick, I fully expect them to take Murray and have expected it since the lottery.

It appears the Kings will most likely draft Murray but will they bring someone else along with him by strategically. Also let’s hope they get Koloko in the second round.

TRob has nothing to do with any of this. He had nothing in common with the top 3 as a player or prospect and none of the FO or ownership people involved in that decision are still around. I get that we’re all traumatized, but let’s try to move forward.

It’s as good or better than any other major fast food burger chain. The only one I’d put comfortably above it is probably Burgerville up in the Pacific Northwest. Maaaayybee Culver’s. Personally, I think Shake Shack is overrated like 5 Guys before it.

But really, we’re talking about a really low bar here. Pretty much every town has a little burger/shake stand that’s better. On a sidenote: did Nationwide Freezer Meats close entirely, or just move?

Fully agree about shake shack and 5 guys. Culver’s is pretty good but because of their custard and pork tenderloin.., I think In and Out is the best for fast food, especially animal style; plus the price is on point!

Per Bleacher Report:

  1. New York Knicks Receive: No. 4 overall pick, C Richaun Holmes
  2. Sacramento Kings Receive: No. 11 overall pick, 2023 first-round pick (via Dallas Mavericks), G/F Alec Burks, SG Quentin Grimes

Always amazes me how proposed trades by these websites involving the Kings always has us getting fleeced. It’s basically the number 4 pick for a mid first rounder this year and a late first rounder next year.
And the heading of the article is “Realistic Trades We could see during 2022 NBA Draft Week” LOL.

I just might do that if I really like Ivey and want to hand the PG keys to Mitchell. If Sochan is there at #11, I’d definitely do that deal.

Dream outcome? Mine is a bit more simple. Part of it has already occurred; the Kings jumped into the top 4. Now I would be pleased if they select a player who will be seen as a good solid pick in hindsight, not only 1 or 2 years from now, but also at the 5 year mark and at the ten year mark. (You all noted how both teams in the last two finals got there that way.

sleeper pick? I think the guy who has dropped way off the draft board and is now projected to go in the 2nd round or undrafted who I think will find a way to succeed in David Roddy. Not saying superstar, but I think he’ll significantly outplay his draft position.

my dream scenario: trade back to Detroit for Bey and the 5th,and get Murray. Pick up Roddy in the 2nd to play SG/SF and absolutely bully those players opposed to him. Pick up shooters in FA like Monk, Beasly, TJ Warren, and trade HB for Duncan Robinson. Trade Holmes for PJ Robinson….

Can’t argue with Bey and Murray, but I doubt Detroit would do that. Roddy in the second round would be a nice pickup I think. I wonder what his draft stock would be if he shot 2/3 from three at the combine scrimmage rather than 0 for 3. Free agency is after.

if we draft Keegan at 4 it will be a mistake. My guy feeling is starter or yet another role player. We will look back upon this draft and passing Ivey as a huge mistake right behind the likes of Luka. This team loves kicking you square in the nuts repeatedly.

I just keep thinking that a very good 6-8 guy is more valuable than a great 6-4 guy. Watching these playoffs (and the Dub’s do not win the championship if not for Wiggins ability to guard Doncic and Tatum), looking at rosters, there is just way more talent at the guard position, from point gaurds to shooting guards to combo guards, than there is at power forward/small forward.

Yup, wings win rings is the new NBA trend. Plus defenders that can guard multiple positions and hit from three are the bee’s knees. Murray can do that, while Ivey cannot.

I have a legitimate question, you are all for Ivey at four. I would like to better understand why you feel Ivy is such a better player aside from athleticism.

I understand why people like him, But aside from people thinking he might be Ja Morant based off of athleticism I think that the overall skill level is not there

Sincerely would like to understand why you are all in on Ivey

Yeah, that’s roughly where I had him as well. Maybe 8. I can’t quite remember.

Doncic
Jackson Jr.
Young
Ayton
Carter Jr.
Mikal Bridges
Bamba
Miles Bridges

Umm…. from there, I can’t remember. The next few were Bagley, Robinson, Porter Jr., Zaire Smith, etc. But I can’t remember the order. Bagley was probably at the top of that group.

I wouldn’t trade the #4 for future picks alone. I’d start with the #4 for the #11, a starting caliber player (Barrett?) and possibly an additional future pick. It’s a king’s ransom or keep the pick.

I’ve got no interest in sending the pick to NY other than for something that includes Barrett. He’s their best asset, and the dropoff is steep after him.

I like Toppin, too, but for the pick, I’ve gotta have RJ.

Anyone like the idea of kings trading down from 4 to 8 for herb Jones, and Larry Nance? Kings send out Holmes to match salaries, or kings send out holiday, Terrence Davis/harkless, and len.

You know who wouldn’t like that idea? New Orleans.

Yeah, N.O. is the only team I see the doesn’t have an interest in trading up because they don’t need an off ball scorer or a big, all of which are likely going #1-5.

I feel what N.O. does want is a PG. What about Fox for Graham, Nance, Murphy III, and the #8? I’m not sure Fox is worth that much, but maybe New Orleans is desperate to win now.

I think that with McCollum, Ingram and Zion on the floor, they would be looking more for a Davion Mitchell or a Tyrese Haliburton than a De’Aaron Fox. They have their big three, and Jones fits them like a glove and is on an insanely valuable contract, so he’s going nowhere.

I could see the Pels trading out of the pick for immediate help, but I could also see them taking Griffin or Davis here and calling it a day. Or maybe they shrug at the value give-up and draft TyTy Washington.

You don’t see Dyson Daniels as the guy if they can’t trade out from 8?

Certainly possible if he’s still on the board.

He’s actually kind of an ideal partner for McCollum. Fox, on the other hand, isn’t.

Yeah, that’s what I thought too. Secondary or primary ball handler, doesn’t want to shoot, will make the right passes and play defense at a high level.

If Daniels is gone before #8 & Sharpe’s still available, I wouldn’t be surprised if NO drafted Sharpe.

I read they were looking to move out of their draft slot entirely from an si article. Kings could maybe trade back into that 8th slot, but how would that work? Future first for it? Or can players go out for it?

There are 29 teams that could offer on the #8 pick. The best offer that the Kings could make (and I’m not saying they would) would be Mitchell, who would have more on-court and payroll value than (say) Barnes. I think that if NO is hell-bent on moving the pick, they could do better. But if you’re going to try to squint and find even a million-one odds chance of happening deal between the Kings and Pels, it would probably be Mitchell for the #8.

The Kings want No. 6 + two future first-round picks in order to move down from No. 4 with the Pacers, which Indiana declined, per @bkravitz
.

Sacramento’s outrageous asking price is making it likely they stay put and select Keegan Murray or Jaden Ivey.

Kings should be asking for something like this and see if anyone is willing to play ball.

I’d rather have player actually who plays over 60 games and doesn’t cost $30 mil to do it.

This, I’m happy to take a high upside play on an oft-injured if:

A. They come along with extra assets to take on their bloated contract (ala Hayward)
or
B. They are a potential bargain on a low risk deal (ala Oladipo)

But neither of those are the case with Brogdon. Which is to say, I wouldn’t place a ton of value on Brogdon in the balance of the trade.

I’d rather have Duarte than an injury-prone player like Brogdon.

Yeah but they aren’t going to offer him. I think best from them is brogdon, 6 and one future 1st.

Which I’d probably take if the top 3 go as expected. That said, I don’t think that works money-wise. So it would probably have to be a bigger deal if Brogdon (and his contract) were involved. Probably something involving Barnes (who makes sense for them). Which, of course, could force the Pacers to add another decent asset (ie. another future pick, Jackson, Duarte, etc.).
