And then who would be the guys our front office traded them for?

Future draft picks of course!

We probably would've traded Booker for KP.

I remember seeing Butler in limited minutes early in his rook year and thinking that he had a lot of energy and a great physique.  Intriguing.

Shai was seen as having flaws, maybe being something akin to Elf, a possible starter or just a solid backup.  But in the last week or two run-up to the draft Shai was getting good buzz for his workouts.  Bumping him nearly into our range.  Would've been a great addition for us.

I'm very much not a draftnik, but I'm pretty sure I even mentioned him in a What about this guy? way.  Since we bottomed out so thoroughly, we really needed to hit on a Donovan Mitchell or Shai or Bam.  Best we've done is RJB, who is interesting but needs to correct a lot.

Given the picks we had, I liked the way that all three past drafts played out:

Needing a PG we had a choice of Frank or Jr. Smith. 
With Zach Collins, Don Mitch and Bam as 3 of the next 5 picks.

'18: needing an SF (and much else) we had a choice of Knox, Bridges x 2, Porter, or a PG in Shai or even Zhaire.

'19: 3rd pick so we had our choice of the field, although the Top 2 look like franchise guys.  RJB, Culver, Hunter, Rui, Jax Hayes, etc.

So we had good draft slots, just didn't hit on any of the 3 picks (jury still out on RJB and last years draft class).

Nice.

All Star break wayyyyyyyy long.

Clippers come back and then play just 4 times in the 4 succeeding days after having 6 days off (most teams play 2 of 4).

What will Knicks look like the last stretch?  Dosome new names get run?  Do vets (see Kanter, 2019) get tossed aside?

On coaching front - THIBS said to be pushing strongly for the job

Looks like a 3-horse race.  JVG has an "if I am the selection, fine - but I don't have to do a dance for anybody" approach.  Mark Jackson meanwhile has a gaggle of friends working behind the scenes for him.

Will there be another candidate oitside the three (I am assuming WRIGHT is no longer a candidate after recent news - though a crapload of cash always talks)

Lakers interested in Harkless if he is bought out.
Will he spill the Clippers secret sauce?

Knox the only Knick mentioned, though as a step up from Justin Jackson.

Is the break over?

Jeeeee-zus.

27 left.  We should win about 8

We should pick about 4th

We should be in line to take LaMelo unless Hawks want him.

Ball and Ball backcourt by '21-'22

Will fit right in.

His shot a work in progress.

Like RJ.

His father a jerk in progress.  Maybe Dolan will give him a spot on celebrity row next to Oakley.

I like watching Cole Anthony.  Shame UNC will be missing the tournament.
