[Termine] Rick Pitino told us on @SiriusXMNBA he tried to convince the Knicks to select Donovan Mitchell with the 8th pick in 2017… They told him they couldn’t do it at #8, and took Frank Ntilikina instead.

What if the Sixers traded Ben Simmons for a point guard who can shoot?

With Al Horford on the team, and Embiid improving as a passer, maybe the Sixers don’t need Ben Simmons’ full passing talent to run a great offense. There are plenty of defensive point guards out there who are adept passers (if not at Ben’s skill level), and *can* actually shoot a 3. I know they’re a division rival, but surely the Sixers can try to work out a deal with the Celtics for the obvious candidate: Marcus Smart. Not only can he run both an offense and defense with Al Horford, but he’s shooting 36.6% at 4.7 attempts a game since the beginning of last season. Tell me that’s not a good deal for both teams.

e: This trade works. Maybe throw in some picks: http://tradenba.com/trades/HyxokEm2r

Harkless and Meyers Leonard for Whiteside: worst trade of the offseason?

I get they needed a center but they also desperately need wings right now. Harkless is a sold two way wing and Meyers Leonard looks better than Whiteside so far. Sure they may be looking to trade Whiteside for someone like Love which may redeem this trade but that’s no guarantee.

Who are the top 10 players in the league right now?

Referring to this season specifically. Injured players like KD would not be considered. Players who would be play again would be (Curry, Hayward, etc). The scenario/criteria is essentially this.

The league is drafting their team for this year, and this year alone. Regardless of team, what order do the players get drafted in?

Top players to consider: Giannis, Harden, Lebron, AD, Kawhi, PG, Luka, Kyrie, Lillard, Towns, Embiid, Westbrook, Young, Jokic, Siakam, etc.
