Watch list

Josh Jackson - Kansas - SF - Andrew Wiggins type

Lonzo Ball - UCLA - PG - 6'6 pass first athletic PG

Harry Giles - Duke - PF

Jonathan Isaac - Fla St - SF

Jayson Tatum - Duke - SF

Frank Ntilikina - France - 6'5 PG

Isaiah Hartenstein - Germany - PF

And all the Kentucky kids lol led by Malik Monk (SG) and De'Aron Fox (PG)

Lauri Markkanen - ARZ - C

Kobi Simmons - ARZ - PG

Giles is the fellow that tore his ACL twice? No thanks. I am for tanking hard right now. We definitely need a PG or SF in this draft. Maybe a PF if they can emerge like KAT or something.

we need a high scoring PF (like melo). defensive not that important since the rest of our starting lineup covers that up pretty wel
Dragic
TJ
Winslow
Scoring PF
whiteside

with Jrich coming of the bench, provide some solid role players and were good to go in a matter of 2-3 years imo

We should be taking the best player available regardless of position other than Center.

Giles would be a risk for sure

But is number 1 pick in most drafts without those injury's

Gotta see how he bounces back

Lonzo Ball was my favorite HS player coming into the season and showed why tonight

Who is the best athlete in this draft slotted for a top 10 pick?

We are really lacking in athleticism. Nobody on our team finishes above the rim (save for Richardson a few times) or can make acrobatic shots in the lane.

Hard to say...Like 7 of the top 10 freshmen are freakishly good athletes lol

Go on YouTube and watch Lonzo Ball vs pacific and watch Miles Bridges vs arz

Take this with a grain of salt: Jay Bilas believes this is the deepest freshman class he has seen in all his years at ESPN. Said that on the MSU-Zona broadcast last friday.

I'm not taking it with a grain of salt

Although I'm much younger then he is that's how I feel to

I feel like if you have a top 5 pick your getting a guy with star potential

If you get a top 12 pick this year your getting a guy with potential to be a good NBA starter

2003 is the ultimate standard, so it will be tough to top that.

I think the 2015 and 2014 classes were better

Players to keep an eye on for me are

OG Anunoby from Indiana and Jonathan Issac from Florida St.

I really want to go after another multi-positional wing to replace Deng so Winslow can play at the 4 more

This draft is deep when it comes to PG and C and weak when it comes to SG/SF

The league is over saturated with PG and C and weak when it comes to SG/SF

Im not as high on this draft as some are

It's crazy how much De'Aaron Fox looks just like John Wall...Like an exact copy almost

Jonathan Isaac has started off hot to for FSU

Markelle Fultz(6-5 PG Washington) had a huge first game...30/7/8

The 1st 4 picks of the draft could legit be all PG's and they all have star potential

Ball
Fultz
Smith Jr
Fox

I want one of Josh Jackson, Dennis Smith Jr, Markelle Fultz, or Harry Giles. I know about Giles injury history, but if he's healthy this year I think he will be a massive sleeper coming into the draft because teams will be scared about his history. He may be the most talented player in the class.
