So when the pick can in ESPN had Young as a PG. Then a moment later they had him as a SF. Any idea's where he will end up? At 6'6" he could play both I guess.
They are both wrong. He's a pure 2.

Bulls get McDermott and Harris, and are able to lure Carmelo maybe. Add them to Rose and Noah.... Wow.

Edit...stupid me, Harris goes to Denver in the trade. My bad.

Nurkic and Harris for Denver would be a sweet haul for mcdermott
 
Yeah. Knowing how the picks shook out, I kind of wonder if the Bulls will end up regretting this.

Everybody I've read says he's too slow to be a full-time NBA two-guard and it jibes with watching him play. Who's saying otherwise?

I think this is as well as they could have done given the way things fell. Feel like something needs to happen with Rondo.

I wonder what happened to Gary Harris to cause him to slip so far.  I guess Danny figures that once he gets a player out of a draft, he can swing for the fences with the next pick.  Hope Young learns how to play defense.
I have a soft spot for Harris. He went to our high school, my wife and daughters know him. Have even seen him at our church. Still waters run deep. Not a vocal kid, but a great team player. Very solid at both ends of the court. Happy he's going to Denver, but would have loved to see the C's take him. Good kid.

Edit: I heard one reason he may have slipped is that he's listed at 6'4", but people thought he was closer to 6'2", which would make him short for a 2. IMO, he's closer to 6'4".

Nice. Do we change the Simmons thread title now to include fist pumping?
I love Simmons, despite his warts. He's a real fan. Compare him to mazz and CHB and the rest of the Boston scribes- while Simmons is fist pumping for a good Celts pick, the other guys have no allegiances- they would tell lies about mother teresa or root against the local team if it brought then readers.

I completely agree, it's refreshing to see an actual fan for once and not a talking head who spits out cliches

'Look, Mike, that's exactly it. You're absolutely right. It's like they're headed in two different directions. Either trade for Love or deal Rondo. This is the worst possible outcome. They tanked an entire season for a point guard who can't shoot, they already have one of those! '

Between Jalen's "certain teams don't attract free agents", and Lavine's "fuck me", I imagine HRB sitting somewhere, smiling.

I agree even if he is a latte sipping, playoff game missing, message-board butt-hurt type.

Bruno Caboclo isn't in the top 60 on DraftExpress, NBADraft.net, or Chad Ford mock drafts. None of those guys even profiled him
 
Look, Belichick knows more than you do.

Outstanding. That's exactly how it'll play out on the air tomorrow.
