B/R Draft GURU, Jonathan Wasserman, joins to breakdown the madness of the 2019 NBA Draft - The good: David Griffin and the New Orleans Pelicans trade away #4 pick to get Jaxson Hayes at #8 to accelerate rebuild after losing franchise player Anthony Davis, thus making themselves exciting team to watch. The Memphis Grizzlies are also big winners getting a star point guard of the future in Ja Morant, and best defensive prospect, Brandon Clarke. The bad: Washington Wizards picking Rui Hachimura at #9, and potentially squandering Bradley Beal's prime years. The ugly: Cam Johnson becoming oldest first-rounder going #11 to the Phoenix Suns (which even shocks Cam's former teammate, Coby White). Beck & Wass also analyze Atlanta's surprise move up to grab DeAndre Hunter at #4 and Cam Reddish at #10, possibly to make the Hawks more attractive to free agents, Minnesota Timberwolves grabbing Jarrett Culver and potentially dumping Andrew Wiggins, Oklahoma City's "hit or miss" draft pick, Darius Bazley, the pros and cons of flip-flopping the draft and free agency deadline, and the reason why Zion Williamson is pretty much a lock for Rookie Of The Year.
