I’ve gone backwards and forwards on whether or not Atlanta will choose Sarr or Risacher in current weeks, which I imagine is an acceptable reflection of a few of the indecision occurring in Atlanta. Sources additionally say Clingan not solely labored out, however made an impression whereas doing so, fueling rumors of a possible commerce down the place they might goal the massive man and add one other draft asset.

If Atlanta doesn’t take Sarr, the expectation is that Washington will. If not, this choose doubtless comes right down to Clingan and Risacher. On condition that Washington chosen a developmental wing in final 12 months’s lottery, Bilal Coulibaly, noticed 23-year-old Deni Avdija make a notable bounce final 12 months, and must allocate a major quantity of minutes to Kyle Kuzma – Clingan could take advantage of sense right here.

Here is the place the dominos matter, as a result of if Sarr and Risacher are each off the board, Clingan will not be anticipated to be the choose. Houston reportedly likes Reed Sheppard, however they’re additionally very open to shifting this choose. If Risacher remains to be on the board, the commerce market may warmth up and so whereas Houston already has a group of younger wings – Cam Whitmore, Amen Thompson, Jabari Smith, Tari Eason – this choose might be made by another person.

On this situation, Sheppard offers them a heady, expert, and ultra-tough combo guard who can encompass Wemby with some much-needed taking pictures.
