Re: 2018 NBA Summer League

I'm confused with the Suns, they traded their #16 pick + 2021 unprotected for a guy they plan to use off the bench? Why the hell are they playing Bridges off the bench in fuarking SL? I hope the plan is to move either Bridges or JJ at some point because i can't make sense of it + they don't have a p.g.

They clearly are planning on starting Brandon Knight next year over Okobo & Bridges will be the third wing off the bench behind Ariza. Why draft a 4 year college player who's ready to contribute to stick him at the end of the bench, smh.

Zhaire Smith for Philly made no sense, i'll keep saying it. They're ready to compete now but yet drafted a 2+ year project who may not turn out to be much in the nba & a pick 3 years down the line, ehh.

Re: 2018 NBA Summer League



@0:22 Luka looks like a legit 6'8, only a few inches shorter than Ayton & taller than 6'7 Bridges. Why does this dude height wise looks all over the place? Luka must have terrible posture because he looked the same height as Miles 6'6 Bridges on draft night.

BB's response is solid, imo. No one is beating GSW next year and that unprotected Miami pick might become a real make-or-break piece in 2 years, when their window truly opens. I'm in on Bridges, but is he a lotto-pick better?

Miami is a big market, still has Pat Riley, a great coach & cap space in 2years, why are you so sure that Miami pick is a lottery pick? Also, how many ready made 3+D wings are available in the first round of the draft in general? Mikal isn't a player that comes around every draft, maybe prospects who you hope to become what he is but never him.

Mikal Bridges= 85% ft shooter, 59.3% fg% & 43.5% 3pt shooter off of 6 attempts per game. Bridges is also 6'7, with a 7'2 wingspan, fairly athletic & at 200lbs and scrawny as hell has alot of room to grow once he gets a nutritionist behind him & commits to a good strength & conditioning routine.

3+D wings with elite size & athletic ability are a rare commodity in the nba & pretty valuable for that reason. Unless they get Kawhi in a trade i'd rather have Bridges>> a 6'4 player in Zhaire who played center until college. Playing center as a 6'4 player until age 18 means you pretty much suck at basketball.

Yeah Zhaires next game at guard will be the first ever in his basketball playing life(center in High school and basically a hybrid wing/power forward at Texas Tech) and he's 6'2 without shoes. So good luck with that.
