The Knicks will still do well with R. J. Barrett, but who can they get to put around him. The Lakers got the 4th pick in a three player draft, I mean the talent drop off after Barrett is pretty significant. I'm just glad the Celtics didn't get in the top 3.
I'm reading the the Pelicans have more leverage now for a AD trade, but I don't see it that way. Williamson and AD would not be good on the court together, they are both fours. I would still like to see a trade package sending Simmons for AD.
