    Kings now have 4 2nd round picks next year and 3 in 2020.

    They'll trade one of the big men.

    It's a great time to be alive if you're a Kings fan.

    I was surprised nobody drafted Brandon McCoy. Thought for sure some team would have taken him in the mid/late 2nd round. Heard he was added to the Bucks summer league roster though.

    Not sure who Gary Clark the basketball player is. But I'm a fan of Gary Clark, Jr. the blues musician.

    That's why I didn't like the trade (beyond how fucked up that was for Bridges family). I don't get why Phoenix did it. I actually don't think Bridges is all that different from Smith and then you give up a totally unprotected future first rounder? That's just dumb to me. They must really believe Bridges is so far ahead that its worth it but I just don't see it. That deal for Phoenix seemed to be more reckless than it needed to be.

    But beyond taking a massive dump on a family moment, I totally see why Philly did it from a pure basketball perspective. They got a player of equal talent and a great asset. There's a very real chance in 2021 the Sixers will be a team competing for championships and will have a high lottery pick via the Heat

    Agreed.

    Good basketball move by Philly. Smith could easily end up being the better player.

    But damn that was cold hearted.

    Sounds like he was happy about being drafted but realized he too will lose to the LeBron Cavs and went to cry himself to sleep

    Less money to pay to the draft pick is my guess. Opens up more cap to sign a star possibly.

    The difference is only a $1M it looks like but it can go along way especially if they make other moes. Still cold-blooded

    Welcome to the NBA. Imagine how exhausted you will be playing back to backs or playing brutal intense playoff games. Not a huge deal but you have commitments now, rookie

    Embiid’s schtick is old.

    I hope Ayton dunks on him like Shaq on Chris Dudley.

    Likely story.

    He celebrated being a first round pick by a contending team by going to sleep at his Aunt's house. I am sure that is why he slept through an 11 AM conference call.

    I didn't think any team trades unprotected first round picks anymore.

    Yep, they did.

    There were some steals at the end of the 2nd round.

    I can't recall people talking about length as much as they have the past two or three years. It seems like people were more focused on height back in the days.
