When is it realistic for Zion to be top 10 player? - PelicanFever
Generally, I have viewed top NBA prospects for needing their third year before they take the next step and are considered by the majority to be top 10 players (elite of the elite). It took Chris Paul and Anthony Davis until their third year to become elite of the elite. Now, I generally have c...

Is pecking order a concern for the keep AD people? - PelicanFever
AD is an elite level player and I believe we should all be in favor of retaining an elite level player. However, would you view a clear pecking order as a concern? Who is the alpha on the team? A lot of times, this stuff actually matters. We have seen Wade say that he had to realize he was a b...

Is buying a second round pick on the table? - PelicanFever
With Gayle’s new commitment, I wonder if this is a legitimate possibility now. I assume it is. I think the price for an early second round pick is $3 million. It has been brought up before about trading to move up but are we discounting this possibility if Griffin falls in love with a guy?...

re: The Historical Argument for Keeping AD - PelicanFever
All about increasing risk tolerance if your ultimate goal is championships. Let’s says odds of him staying are 25%, and AD, Zion and Jrue have let’s say 50% chance of making the finals over the next three years. If ultimate goal is championships, you have to take that risk, right? I would t...

re: The Historical Argument for Keeping AD - PelicanFever
If goal is to win championships, then you have to take calculated risks. Keeping AD probably gives this franchise the best chance to win a championship. With that said, I think you have to keep him no matter what and continue to sell him and be confident that your vision will sell him over time, ...

re: So, we know we are picking Zion #1, but what about our 2 2nd round picks? - PelicanFever
Dylan Windler is a guy I would target and move up for in early second round. I believe he has high floor of being an elite shooting role player. Second round, I would target higher floor guys and try to secure the best chance of obtaining a solid role player on a great contract....

re: Is getting Brogdon realistic ? - PelicanFever
Is paying Brogdon that contract good value? I don’t think It would be. Would focus on getting good value contracts with the possibility in mind of flipping for a higher quality player and better fit if the chance was made available in the future. Signing contracts that are not value assets lim...

Best NBA trios over next 3 years - PelicanFever
You win big in the NBA based on your top level talent. With that said, rank your top 10 NBA trios while projecting over the next 3 years. For this exercise, obviously assume that Davis opts in for another year and then Griffin can convince him to stay next summer. Also, let’s assume Thompso...

re: The Compromise - PelicanFever
Does this go against the all way in or all the way out comment? We want to create a great culture and think long term in the decision making process but I can’t help to think that the entire organization will be uneasy all year with the Davis decision next summer under this scenario. Having th...
