Here's Michael Porter Jr., Of all the players to be compared to Grant Hill over the years, I think he's the closest. I also like him better than Josh Jackson who's widely considered the best wing prospect from the previous years class.

Wow.. better than Jackson is way telling. Jackson is insane. In a good way.

Trevon Duval from Jersey, plays a bit like Kyrie Irving from Jersey. I'm sure you've heard that line about PG's having it the toughest when transitioning to higher levels of competition.. well not for a PG like Duval.. he's got the advantage, and good luck to whoevers going to try and flip the script on him.. One word to describe Duval with the ball in his hands; Devastating

I'd take him on the Jazz right now and would sacrifice a **** ton of picks and whatever penalties they could muster up to do so.. He's got a better frame and more hops than Kyrie ever did, Dunks the ball rather effortlessly.

Somewhere between Kyrie and Mike Conley, but taller/bouncier...
Total BADASS. I HATE that he will be a dukie.

Post some Dzanan Musa highlights!

The Slovenian Golden Boy, Luka Doncic(6'6" wing player) will be draft elligible in 2018, he's the best international prospect I've seen from the age group. Real Madrid signed him to a 5 year deal at 13 years old..

Good. Sounds like he will be free of the contract in time for the draft. Hopefully with the Salary Cap going up the next CBA will push up rookie contract so more of the intl players will come over instead of waiting 3 years or perhaps never in the case of some guys we might know on Jazzfanz.

Gary Trent Jr. is regarded by the consensus as the top SG in the class, he's not that big, maybe 6'5", hes not crazy dynamic, what he is though, is the top shooter in the class and a very reliable, polished player, . He can attack closeouts in many ways, he's got plenty of moves to get his shot off, and he's always concise with the ball, plays with tremendous pace and poise. He seems kind of Bradley Beal-ish.

The son of Gary Trent who went Ohio U?

Another UK target, 6'1" Trae Young. some compare him to Steph Curry, like Howard he's got an exceptionally sharp handle, sees the floor well and can shoot the lights out. He's also been linked in a package deal with Michael Porter Jr.

Tell me the truth. Does your name on another site contain the the word smash?

We have a very savvy fan base, we're lucky to have guys like PG_AB and other stat freak posters I've seen around here. It's a large spectrum that goes from the analytical likes of PG_AB to the comical taste that Avery and Bodhi bring, to give a couple examples. We make Lakers forums look like a pre-school playground.

Jarrett Allen could very well end up a one and done. He's one of my favorite bigs from 2016 and a clear cut Lottery talent in my estimation. Given 2 years of college I'd say he's probably a top-10 player in this draft.

1 more 2016 4 star. #72 in scout's rankings. 6'4" Zack Norvell, a lefty marksman. From Simeon High (D. Rose, J. Parker)

The kid is bombing from about 25 feet. Damn. Don't like his form at all though. Just sort of chucks it up casually.

6'9" T.J. Leaf is like a more badass version of Kyle Singler. Serious face-up skills, he's bouncy a triple threat, and a threat to hit triples, infact he can make it rain from outside, and must be guarded out on the perimiter like a SF. 2016 recruit, must add strength to play PF in the league.

He decommitted from Arizona.
