There are quite a few wings available this year, up and down the draft. Many have been mentioned in this thread. I'm pretty sure I'm the only one that still thinks Max Christie is a name to watch. He hasn't made much noise in Lansing, but I love his skill set, size and athletic profile. MSU players, especially freshmen, underwhelm statistically, so im less concerned than most.

Give me 3 wings please.

21.Wendell Moore.

33.Julian Champagnie.

38.Christian Braun

Max Christie is way too raw for me now. Pass. There’s too many prospect that is shooting 50%fg and 37%3 that’s projected to go in the 2nd round I’d rather have.

One guy I'd be all in on a similar package to the Zaire Williams trade up for is AJ Griffin. The guy looks like a future star if everything breaks right for him, even before tonight. He may end up top 7 at this rate.

To some extent Okoro/Stevens/ Cedi, and maybe Sexton all can do a above average job at SG ……My first choice would be some type combo guard with more PG skills to be my first pick…..Looking at TyTy and Wesley…….

For me I'd rather have my back up PG be a veteran who the young guys can learn from. This draft appears to be loaded with wings so if we keep all our picks i'm definitely taking 2 wings and maybe backup C.

Since we had a convo about this recently, interesting to see this come out from SI. Has TyTy falling to 24, first publication I have seen with him that low. This blurb was also interesting:

Many scouts I’ve spoken with view him as a better option in the 20s than in the lottery, and he’s not for everyone, but his play has been trending up lately.

20. Cavaliers: A.J. Griffin, F, Duke​

Height: 6' 6" | Weight: 220 | Age: 18 | Freshman

Following his slow start to the season while returning from injury, it’s been nice to see Griffin string together positive showings and carve out a significant role as Duke’s sixth man. The jury remains out on what that actually means as far as the draft is concerned — NBA teams have mostly been in wait-and-see mode — but the closer he can get to his old self, the firmer his case as a first-rounder becomes. Griffin has been efficient and selective as a scorer, but hasn’t showcased much of a complementary skill set yet, which is a likely requirement for him to inch toward the lottery. He’s strong but not overly quick or shifty. Teams want to see him do more than simply score, and he can also be better defensively. Griffin is young for his class and warrants additional patience as he finds a rhythm but his stock remains one of the trickiest to gauge at this point in the season.

Sign me up! But this is never going to happen, no way he drops this far barring another injury.

Yes please.

I really doubt this but i'd be happy with everyone mentioned thus far and you can absolutely add this guy to the list..

Interesting to me that a guy I’m liking more and more, Jeremy Sochan, is touching the lotto.

But yeah, if the crop of wings that fall to the 20s in this mock happens in real life the Cavs are winners.
