    Take Knox at #9, DiVincenzo at #20, and Anfernee Simons at #36.
    No i would prefer Wiggins back instead of Aldrich.

    THANK YOU!!!! I agree! Not sold on Knox at all. I'd happily eat crow but I sincerely doubt it.

    Beasley had other issues beyond basketball. Porter seems to have his head on straight, but if it wasn't possible then he wouldn't have a chance at lasting until 9.

    Yeah but I just hate the effort, itís like heís letting the talent get to his head. And heís barely trying on defense. Beasley is gifted but heís too gifted to the point he feels like he doesnít need to try hard. Thatís the vibe I get with Porter. Plus his handle is horrible

    I think it's common with the top HS players. They are just that much better than everyone. It's part of the reason why many of them aren't good defensive players until they are finally taught defense/have to play defense in the NBA.

    Let's be honest. All these dudes need work.
    MPJ - injury history and lack of defense bothers me
    Knox - IQ, coordination, lack of defensive instinct\movement\iq bothers me
    Mikal - lack of strength for SF bothers me (if he goes up against say Tobias Harris, what happens - BBQ Chicken). Too light.
    Miles - lack of length bothers me
    Trae - everything but open jump shots and passing bothers me

    I don't mind taking Knox
    I wouldn't mind talking Lonnie Walker at 9; then somehow trading up and getting Hutchinson (but i don't think we worked him out).

    But most of the time theyíre still poor defenders when they get to the league. You rarely see players that were poor defenders in HS & College end up being good defenders in the NBA. Watching the video he lacks instinct, effort and slow to switch.

    And back to his handle, he needs to fix that, itís really bad

    I rather take Mikal and Miles concerns over everyone else!

    Now everyone is saying that Mikal killed all his interviews and heís the epitome of what you want in a player character-wise.

    I swear Iíve flipped from Mikal, Miles, Knox and Walker too many times this week alone. Need the draft to happen asap.

    Still say that Wendell Carter would not be a bad pick either.

    I mentioned Lonnie Walker earlier -- I too would be good with him. More of a gamble perhaps but higher upside?
