I think Danny will value his talent. He likes those wings with elite size and strong skillset.I think he is boom or bust. If he ends up on a team like Charlotte then he’s Shabazz Mohammed. If he ends up here? Look the **** out because he will be held accountable here and he will be joining a culture stronger than the allure of his talent.
I could stomach him with the Jazz’s earliest pick because at least it’s a swing and the Jazz should make those. I would be pleased if they drafted him with the 2nd pick. I would be over the moon if they got him with the Sixers pick but it is inconceivable to me that he falls that far (though, maybe trading up from the Sixers pick is doable).
The talent is undeniable.
Jordan Hawkins is really ****ing good. I think he has played himself into the lottery. I think there is a solid top-7 at the moment and starting at 8 it starts to get really interesting.
Doesn’t show any advanced ball handling skills. I hope he skyrockets up the draft board to push someone else down to us. I do think he is a very gifted shooter and has great off ball movement, but I have concerns about his size as well and effectiveness in 2 spot in nba. I could envision role playing minutes off bench with length career doing short minute stints. To me seems like a Reggie Miller or rip Hamilton type of player with his movement and shot seeking….but those players were both >6’7” I believeHawkins’ shot has poor arc and I’m not sure what else he does on the court. Fine height but overall seems small.
I just don’t personally see much of an NBA player. If that shot translates then he will find a way for sure.
