Jamal Murray has never made an All-Star team (which should change next year).
How many guards would you take ahead of him if you were trying to win a playoff series?
Steph. Luka. Dame. Booker.
I think those are only 4 locks.
Then he’s with Morant, SGA, Mitchell, Brunson, Fox – 8:31 AM

Sean Highkin @highkin
None of the national conversation about “wanting to get Dame out of Portland” is about actually “wanting better for him” or whatever. They just want him in New York because it’s a big market. Saying it’s because “he deserves to get a ring” is disingenuous. – 3:45 PM
Erik Slater @erikslater_
Damian Lillard further fanned the flames of a potential trade to Brooklyn, calling the Nets an “obvious” destination.
What does the comment mean? Does Brooklyn have the assets to outbid Miami? Is a Dame trade worth it?

Erik Slater @erikslater_
Damian Lillard’s response when asked which of the Heat, Knicks, Celtics, or Nets he wouldn’t mind being traded to:
Miami and Brooklyn.
“Miami is the obvious one. Bam is my dog. Brooklyn is another obvious one because Mikal Bridges is my dog too. Both have capable rosters.” – 9:58 AM

Tom Ziller @teamziller
I wrote about overthinking the Scoot Henderson sweepstakes, including a suggestion that (if he’s there at 3) the Blazers should just draft him AND keep Dame for now. – 8:58 AM

Kelly Iko @KellyIko
Thinking out loud here but the closer the draft gets, why would Portland trade No. 3? The odds of you getting a return that really helps Dame and puts Portland in “getting out of the 1st round” territory are slim. Take the best player available, move Dame to a contender – 8:31 PM
