2024 NBA Draft Mega Thread

Once again all the so called jazz experts that were so confident that the jazz wanted to distinguish our obligation to the thunder are wrong. I wonder who these guys are actually talking to or if they are more so just throwing their opinions against the wall to see if they hit on something.

They need a triple-threat wing who can create an advantage. Same as always. Otherwise it's going to be more Sexton kamikaze offense.

Castle definitely showed that potential in high school and we are starting to see it for UConn. In the end though this is a solid role player draft so you shouldn't expect some elite triple threat wing because that is not likely to happen. With Hardy at the helm though Sexton is definitely not going to be a long term focal point. I don't think there is a shot in hell that he is starting over Keyonte next year and it may happen by the end of this year.

Personally, I think the Jazz were always going to head this direction at the trade deadline. I think the talk about making the playoffs was PR to generate some excitement and fan engagement. Being a 9th seed and playing one or two post-season games isn't worth foregoing value on expiring players and giving up a top-10 pick, even if this is an iffy draft.
 
Tidjane Salaun is interesting. He's long, moves well, has decent hands (not amazing), has real shooting touch. His handle is a bit loose. He plays with consistent energy and tries to have an impact on the defensive end. He's comfortable taking (or settling) for long jumpers, but also attacks the rim pretty hard if he has a lane. Looks like a reasonable, off-ball stretch big who has enough tools to potentially develop into something more. He'll move the ball and make the next pass.

The question mark is shooting off the dribble and being able to create a few separation moves. He doesn't seem to have that yet. He also needs to develop more of a rim-finishing package besides a straight layup or dunk. I can see this guy going in the 2nd half of the lottery.

Gonna wait about 10 games before diving in here. I think the only guy I’m going to love for the first pick is Cody Williams… in the 5-10 range I love Shep. The rest of the guys look like guys I could like if I squint a little.

Take a look at Cam Christie's highlights. He has great size for a sg and can really shoot the ball. I look forward to following him over the next month.

Will do… in 10 or so games.
 
Filipowski is a legit option for us now that we’re going to be trending towards keeping our pick. That is amazing for us.
