Report: Pelicans have discussed move up from No. 4 to No. 2 pick
But the NY Post says it's not for who you'd think:

quote:

According to an NBA source, they have explored moving back to gain more assets and also had internal talks about moving up to the second pick to take Memphis’ selection and draft RJ Barrett to team with his Duke compadre Zion Williamson. Barrett and Williamson are best friends.

Yeah I’m with the rest of the people who posted. If we move up it better be to take morant. Barrett is already making comments about only wanting to play for the Knicks.

Griff plays the public negotiation-leverage game better than anyone it appears

He doesn’t want Barrett but he’s willing to make it seem like we are willing to move up to get him to get others to improve their offers for #4. Shrewd man

Pulling it multiple times isn’t the sign of genius.

Having people keep buying it when you do it is.

If that happened, I'd set Griff's house on fire.

There’s a considerable amount of smoke out there that Morant isn’t the unanimous 2nd pick most think he is.

He’s going second. It’s guaranteed. Ill do a life ban bet if he isn’t picked

I'm not even 100% how a trade of the 4th pick would work, because it will still technically be the Lakers' pick on draft night.

My curiosity is about what happens to the draft if Morant falls from 2.

Him seen as the 2nd tier prospect behind Zion but above Barrett has been a given for months now. If teams start balking, how far does he fall if teams want less of a project player?
