Ziad Abdul-Malik had the other goal as none of the Wildcats’ nine shots got past Chris Szidat or Will Summers.This loss didn’t shake up the Wildcats too much, though, for on Thursday night it hosted Cicero-North Syracuse and unleashed its attack on the Northstars, not letting up until it had earned a 4-2 victory.
The first three picks of the NBA Draft are pretty much set in stone, but things could get interesting with the fourth overall pick. The Lakers technically hold the pick, but they’ve agreed to trade the draft rights to the Pelicans as a result of the Anthony Davis deal. But New Orleans is reportedly shopping the pick around, which would lead to a confusing trade inception. If the Pelicans do make a deal, ESPN’s NBA analyst Jalen Rose predicts the Bulls will be involved. Sometimes @jalenrose makes a mistake and says things into microphones he shouldn’t. Then I put them on the internet because that’s what friends do: pic.twitter.com/gOLx53xRMw— Jacoby (@djacoby) June 20, 2019MORE: Full first round 2019 NBA Mock Draft What Rose reported isn’t quite as interesting as how he reported it. The social copy promoting the video says “sometimes [Rose] makes a mistake and says things into microphones he shouldn’t.” And in the video, Rose wonders aloud if he’s even allowed to say what he does.”I guess I’m gonna say this,” Rose said. “I was about to look at my phone and see if I was able to say this or not.”Here’s Rose’s proposal:Pelicans get: 7th pick, Zach LaVineBulls get: 4th pick, Lonzo BallThis isn’t the first time LaVine’s name has been tied to the Pelicans. ESPN’s Zach Lowe suggested the deal in a recent podcast appearance, although he made sure to point out there was no reporting behind it.One clarification: Beck and I had a spitballing session on who the Lakers/Pels might be able to get for 4th pick. I mentioned a bunch of potential targets, including Zach LaVine. That was just me speculating, not reporting. Worded it inelegantly, apologies for that. https://t.co/cxcbe1Pd01— Zach Lowe (@ZachLowe_NBA) June 13, 2019Ball’s name was also tied to the Bulls before the Lakers deal. There was speculation from some saying the Bulls were trying to get in on the Davis deal. Essentially the talk was the Bulls would receive what they ended up getting in Rose’s proposal. Would it make sense for the Pelicans and Bulls to make this trade?This trade is a good idea for the Bulls. They get to move up in the draft and take on a player still on his rookie contract in Ball. LaVine currently has an average salary of $19,500,000 until 2022 when he becomes a free agent. Ball, meanwhile, has an average salary of $7,489,280 until 2021. The deal doesn’t make a ton of sense for New Orleans, unless the Pelicans truly view LaVine as a much better option than Ball. LaVine is the better player, but is it worth taking on the extra salary and moving down three spots in the draft? It depends on how much the Pelicans really like LaVine.Rose seems to think some version of this deal could go down on draft night.
