If we keep our pick, I just want us to get the player with the highest upside. If we keep our pick, we need to strike gold, because we won't have it the following year (to my knowledge.)

I think Ball is that Gold we need to strike.

I know if we stay at 3 everyone will want us to take either Ball, Fultz, Jackson or Fox but the guy I think will be the steal of the draft and a much better player than Ingram and Randle is Isaac.

Interested in Mike@LG thoughts on Isaac.

Basically he's Robert Horry, except he has asthma issues, concerns about strength, and more raw individual skills. He was "hidden" at FSU's system because they basically played 10 guys 20-25mpg, and we never saw that further exploited out of Isaac. Where was he in the tournament? Silent. He's not a shot creator or dynamic ball-handler, but a stud #3 or #4 option for teams looking for unicorns. If you're willing to wait on project players, he's the guy, but the Lakers don't have time to wait.

Thanks.
Seems you're not as high on him as me.
I see some Durant lite ability.
Can't say he won't develop into more than a #3 or 4.
I actually like him more than Ingram.

I just see him as more of a project, just to get to a role player status. Even if he was polished, he's a 3 and D guy at PF.
