    And what a gigantic night it is for the future of our beloved 'Boys. So we've been given the following names that we're targeting:

    Lawrence
    Ealy
    Crichton
    Jernigan
    Lee
    Latimer

    I think it's clear that Lawrence is the preference, since he's the only guy we consider a RDE. Similar to the 3T position, this staff sets a high standard for guys to play Ware's departed spot. Lawrence seems to be the only starter-quality guy for that valuable spot, but keep this in mind... Ealy (in particular) and Crichton can play 2 positions: LDE and 3T in the nickel. It's possible that their position flex is enough to keep us from going all-in to deal up for Lawrence.

    If it's me, I think we need to come out of here with our RDE. He's the highest upside, highest value player, and worthy of using a pick to move up for. I would be OK with using our 4th rounder to get him.

    They will probably stay at #47 if they think 1 player in that list will be available.

    Agree. However, I'd like to think Attaochu is their real target (I prefer him over Lawrence).

    My top 5 before going into round 2:

    Lee
    Attaochu
    Jernigan
    Lawrence
    Crichton

    Fair enough, but if we're really coveting that RDE, Lawrence requires a trade up to secure. That said, no way I want to give up #78, which is what it would take to get to Oakland (#36) to jump Atlanta.

    Lawrence and his suspensions seems to not be a RKG.
