But then again, they going to have another great pick in 2018.
Our Euro stash (Ante Zizic) is coming over for next season. He's been dropping double doubles pretty consistently in Euroleague play since he joined this Turkish team that David Blatt is coaching. Before he made that move he was dominating the Adriatic League (where Jokic and Nurkic were playing). Has a really high motor. Will probably be kinda like Zubac for the Lakers. Might not be the rim protector that we're looking for, but at least he'll be a big body.

Will probably have to wait until 2018 for a true rim protector. Luckily there are a lot of good big man prospects.

I can see Aaron Gordon and Tatum switch up their matchups every now and then.

I like Tatum with the Magic. I think it fits well. But then again, this coming from a Sixers fan who hopes they stay leave Monk for us to grab. Besides, they already have Fournier at the 2.

Bamba or Ayton would be perfect, preferably Bamba.


Kid is going to be a different level of a rim protector, 7'8 wingspan and growing + he's mobile with a jumper and plays above the rim even though he can basically dunk from the floor.

I'd be completely happy with either of them.

Good breakdown.

 

Aside from Bridges handles, he is as NBA ready as they get, and in regards to a 6'8 guy who is 19, I will take that flaw any day of the week.

post #8078 of 8309
How much does "NBA Ready" really matter? I don't think I've ever seen a prospect who was "NBA Ready" and actually made a big impact. I am not saying that Bridges is a bad prospect, but the term NBA ready never really translated to anything.

The last highly regarded NBA ready prospects I remember was Evan Turner and we all know how that went.

It is a pretty vague term, I mean it in regard to his body. 

post #8080 of 8309
I find it a term for writers and GMs to hype a prospect up but it doesn't mean anything. lol I think Bridge's stock went up after last game and will probably end up between 10 and 13.

Maybe. But his game is way more refined that Harris during his college days.

I think it's a useless label and more often than not just code for lottery prospects with lower ceilings.

Think of guys with that label in recent years like Kris Dunn, Thomas Robinson, Evan Turner among others.

Ingram's FG% each month (starting in Nov): 34-34-38-44-51.

Ingram's PPG each month (also starting in Nov.): 7.8-7.1-9.1-10.0-12.9

Steadily improving.

Terrible decision

He's got Shawn kemp athleticism
post #8087 of 8309
Definitely a bad decision.

Am I the only one that thinks when it's all said and done that Fultz might not be the best player in this draft?

His team is steering him wrong.

Scouts are only gonna poke holes in him if he keeps playing.

Seriously. I heard when D Rose tried to come back, Cal ripped up his scholarship.

Yes.


He's the most talented prospect by a good bit, he's the only player that truly projects as a franchise talent when we are talking production, age, skillset, measurements, athleticism and temperament.

roll.gif I remember that. Cal had zero interest. Told Rose that he had Tyreke coming & basically g t f o

It's never a good idea to stay, you risking millions of dollars for nothing.

If you're projected as a top 10, staying in school won't make you a better player or prospect.

James Mcadoo is a prime example, obviously wasn't top 10 talent but after his freshman year he was a lottery pick.

Stayed trying to win a ship and by his senior year he didn't enticed anyone with his talents. .

JMM is the ultimate, dude coulda fleeced a team.
post #8096 of 8309

For a select few, going back wouldn't be that bad. I'm referring to the ones who come from wealth. Mcadoo, I'm assuming his family isn't hurting (I have no idea tbh though)

 

No idea if Grayson comes from wealth, but he already won a title, why did dude really want to win another one... maybe he doesn't need the cash idk

 

Other than that going back holds no real benefits, especially if it's just for one more year

Faultz is a flat out star , injuries would be the only thing stopping him from not being great

Agreed, his injuries are the only thing that scare me. Glad he didn't try to push through anything and just ended up sitting out games

post #8099 of 8309
Williams has a chance to move into the top 3-5 next season but the risk isn't worth the reward imo.

Leave school & get your money.

Looking at mocks and it's plausible sac ends up with two top 10 picks. Do they dare and take Fox and Smith if they are available? I've seen mocks that have them grabbing at least one of them. I see mixed opinions on the kid from FSU and PG is definitely a spot where they need desperate help. Collison and Lawson will not be back. The Kings absolutely need to hit on this draft.
