    How much weight did he lose? That may help alleviate my concerns if his quickness has improved to dropping some mass

    If the Bulls were interested in trading Deng for Barnes, I wouldn't think Cleveland would be the partner but our rumored interest in Barnes may bring us in to the deal or at least influence it.

    Can't wait to have Barnes alongside Kyrie and Thompson next season. 3 of 5 pieces. Gotta find numbers 4 and 5!

    Hopefully we can find one of those 2 with picks 24, 33, and 34. Get the last one next year. Start the dynasty!

    All this brand stuff that Barnes has, and the fact that there have been multiple places where I have seen that Barnes's camp is trying to get him to a big market, makes me really hope that the Cavs don't take him.

    link?

    I know he interviewed with the Bulls which is obv a better market than CLE/WAS/SAC/CHA. Didn't really hear much about his "camp" (why do so many players have camps??? esp as rookies) pushing him towards one tho.

    I do think if he doesn't refocus his priorities market could very likely be a big factor when he eventually becomes a free agent.

    I have a 6'7"-6'8" wingspan at 6'3", but there are other possible factors attributing to this. Different people have different insertion and origin points for their muscles in addition to different muscle fiber makeups and levels of CNS stimulation in certain parts of the body that will affect their strength in certain areas. I'm guessing it's a combination of all those things that make up my disproportionate strength. Oh well. At least I don't bench more than I squat or deadlift like some of the losers that only work out their upper bodies. :chuckles:

    All I can say is that I'd love to be at the Beal vs. Barnes workout this Sunday. Sounds like a great way to decide on which one to draft.

    Beal's ball-handling, ability to create his own shot, and passing abilities are starting to make me want him over Barnes.

    Yeah, I'll be surprised if beal is still there at 4. Regardless I don't think the cavs can really miss this draft. I mean is anyone going to be mad we got gilchrist, drummond, beal, or robinson? They all are good prospects.

    The truth is right now I would be upset if they took Drummond at 4. He's way too risky. He's got a ton of athleticism for a big. But, his low motor scares me.

    As for Barnes specifically, I like him more than a lot of people do on this forum. He definitely needs to work on his handles. But, IMO, that is much easier to correct than MKG's horrific shooting form. Barnes doesn't have an explosive first step. So, I don't see him as a superstar. But, he should be fine player and a terrific fit next to Irving. That said, I'd rank my preference for the Cavs as Davis>Beal>MKG>Barnes. In a nutshell, I think the Cavs should stay at 4. If they get anyone of the four guys I mentioned, I'd be happy with that.

    Yeah I'm an admitted Barnes hater...

    But I'm actually warming up to him. With a great point guard next to him in Kyrie I think he'll flourish.

    Same! I can't agree more! But thinking about it, anyone really fits well with Kyrie because he shoots and distributes so well, I'll take Beal, Barnes, or MKG! and with the 24th pick, some one that is all around. Then take players who do 1 thing well rather than a all around mediocre (if thats how you spell it) like the Spurs did.

    Wages of Wins is a bunch of clowns. I was laughing the whole time at that post. They don't know a thing about basketball. I could make an argument that all of the guys in that list are the top 10 most underrated prospects.
