This is a top-heavy class which means Barnes or Jalen Suggs could still be available with the fifth pick. Don’t be surprised if the Golden State Warriors make a move to trade up and snag either prospect remaining on the board. The cost be could a bit higher than they’re willing to pay but they’re undoubtedly going to explore a route to either prospect as both would fit well in their winning culture. If the Warriors are not able to trade No. 7 to move up, I wouldn’t be surprised if they trade down. I’d imagine the Memphis Grizzlies are a potential suitor. Golden State could then use No. 10 and No. 14 to select win-now prospects like Davion Mitchell and Chris Duarte.

All of this stems back to Jokic’s under-the-radar approach to the game and life as an NBA superstar. The 26-year-old big man has no vision of living the celebrity lifestyle, instead opting to quietly go about his offseason back in Serbia as he prepares for another grinding season. Leave it to Hyland to perfectly encapsulate Jokic’s approach to the game when explaining some of his initial impressions of the reigning MVP. “You would never know that he won MVP,” Hyland said. “Just the way he carries himself, it’s like he’s grinding for another MVP, or he’s grinding for that next contract. He’s 1 of 1 for sure.”
The Detroit Pistons did it with a J Cole jersey earlier this year along with a “tryout” offer that, let’s be honest, just didn’t seem to be real. But this time, we at least got Cole on the court. The hip-hop superstar was actually running with the Orlando Magic in a team practice. Like, it was really him. Practicing. With the Magic. Cole Anthony, RJ Hampton. All of them.
