Our plan in this draft was to go and get a high potential big man that could turn into something special. After Meyers Lenoard and Andre Drummond came off the board, we decided that the best route to get what we want would be to pursue a trade. The players available at 12 will be nothing but wing players unless we decide to make a huge reach. Our team has very little room at the 1-3 spots for a player to develop as it would be hard for them to get time to develop to their potential.
Conley/Ridnour - Iggy/Brooks - Hayward/Miller
Ed Davis can come in and get time at the back-up 4 and a little bit of spot time at the 5. With Dalembert and Milsap expiring at the end of next season, we can groom Davis to be a possible replacement for them.
Not bad, Ed Davis is still getting some PT in real life and he's still playing solidly, showing his potential. Not sure when he gets a real chance to shine there unless there is an injury, but it's basically him for pick 12 and I'm ok with that.

Alex English: I think it's more than just a random sample of people having some guaranteed to be stupid, otherwise I think you would've seen more of the "woke" athletes speak out against the jew hating nonsense from a week or two ago.

Tom Izzo: I think it's more likely some NBA players have weird or awful views, same as the rest of us, because they're stupid and have platforms to openly discuss it.
