    No jokes here. I think his basement is good 4th big. Perfect for what the Jazz will need beyond this year.

    Having said that, I like Jennings far more than most on this board. I do think he's a knucklehead, probably a bad fit here (we need a strong leader), but I think in the right circumstances he would thrive in a very big way. I'd be excited if Utah signed him, we could either be entertained with more wins, or by watching a total train wreck .. but at least it would probably be something outside the norm.
    The past few pages were about possible free agent PG's, so I thought it was odd he didn't even get a mention.

    I think we feel the same way about him.

    Today I was looking at what might be available for the Jazz at 12 and 25 range. Then I read the past few pages of this thread.

    So Trey Burkes, or MCM? I haven't seen either play, honestly I don't know a thing about them except what is written on draft express, but it looks to me that C.J. McCollum is a Jazz man. Small School, under-recruited, long arms, creates his own shot, shoots alot of FTs, skinny as a rail, upset Duke in the Tournament. If that doesn't say 'Jazzman' I don't know what does. Really the only thing lacking is to discover he was raised by his single mom in Mississippi and he has a foundation for blind children.

    Also, you can't escape the Jazz's ability to draft a player that is a duplicate of somebody on the roster. McCollum could be Burks younger and shorter brother. Burks could show him the ropes of how a sg learns to play pg in the jazz system while only playing every fourth game and then as a sg. It is destiny.

    Speaking of destiny Jeff Withey at #25--let the jokes begin.
    McCollum plays a lot like Damian Lillard. Both are scorer's first, and absolutely love those step back jumpers. CJ is hitting his 3FG at a remarkable 53% this year and takes almost 6 a game, but I expect it to drift back toward 40% (still good). While Lillard has made the transition to PG, McCollum might have it a little more difficult, his assist to turnover ratio has remained just slightly better than 1:1 throughout college, while Lillard's was a more healthy 1.4:1
    A backcourt of Burks and McCollum would be a nightmare to defend though, you could run some variation of a dribble drive offense with McCollum, Burks, and Hayward in. All can drive, dish, shoot, and get to the free throw line a lot.

I know I get the rap as the guy that follows pubescent teens and not many may want to share in that title .. I understand. Others will obviously emerge, but here are the early leaders as the next great PG's;

    2014
    Andrew Harrison - Going to UK. Best PG prospect since Wall. Big, strong, NBA body right now. True floor general with excellent size at 6'6. No gimmicks, no combo, pure point. Look for him to be the best PG in the nation as a freshman.
    Kasey Hill - Going to Florida. Very dynamic playmaker. Better, by far, than anyone in this year's crop. A bit small, but a little bigger than Trey Burke.

    2015
    Emmanuel Mudiay - Not signed. Incredible PG with good size at a legit 6'4. Look for him to be the best PG in the nation as a freshman.
    Tyus Jones - Not signed. Badass 6'1 PG .. mean as hell.. will be VERY good. (Mudiay is ranked #2 overall in the class and Jones #3)
    Jaquan Lyle - Not signed. True point with good size at 6'4. Fun to watch. I'm catching a few of his games this year and will know better after that..

    That's about it. I mean, there are obviously others .. but just remember, I warned quite heavily about Kabongo when he was being projected top 10 and now look where he's at .. Tony Wroten? I was hating on that guy .. with good reason. Like Gyp said recently, most of these are not my scouting opinions, but the opinions of professionals.

    Look back over the last several years and the next few and you get a great idea why I was pushing the panic button so early and often .. the only PG I pimped big was Kyrie. Now there will be a few more really good ones (franchise) .. but we'll have to be very lucky to draft one.
    You think he's better than Irving, then?

    That is a line up I would love to see.

On why he let Trey and Gordon play while having bad games, "You gotta let them battle through it because that's what you gotta do." Really are you kidding me. You have to balls to say that when you pulled Alec after 16 minutes against LAC and Kanter got 19 minutes toinght?

    Anthony Bennett Drawing Karl Malone Comparisons
    Jan 02, 2013 4:39 PM EST


    Anthony Bennett has had an outstanding freshman season at UNLV, averaging 19.2 points, 8.9 rebounds and 1.3 assists in 28.3 minutes per game.

    Bennett has increased his stock in the eyes of NBA scouts.

    "I have heard Karl Malone a little bit, which is really intriguing," wrote Chad Ford.

    Bennett is listed at 6'8, which would make him a slightly undersized power forward.

    Been following Bennett closely for 3 years now .. seen 11 games live. He's really good .. I think he's a tweener that will transcend the position like Barkley .. not as well .. but in the same way. He has a bit of perimeter skills, but I think he needs to focus on strength rather than handles, etc...

    He should go around 14/15 on 'my' board.

    We will have to disagree on where he ranks. I see him as a top 10 potentially top 5 depending on how well he performs in league play. Like you I have seen him play for 3 years both at Findlay and as a season ticket holder. I really like his swagger and his versatility, but do agree he needs to try to be more effective in the post as he tries to do too much on the perimeter at times. I think some of that is rices offense though because at Findlay he did a little more work down low.

    Was Malone a legit 6'9? Bennet is 6'8 and change from the look of him. I think a taller Grandmama is a good comparison for him. Unfortunately he has had back trouble like LJ so hope that does not become part of his comparison.

    I don't recall anyone bashing his size, bru ..

    He's a beast down low .. not a sf, at this point .. am I wrong???????

    Anyway, like the guy, he's beasting, he needs to give breadth to his skill set .. is he doing that???

    I don't think Bennett will be in the Jazz's range. He intrigues me greatly, though.
