    I can’t tell you when he will come... the churro said no man knoweth when he will come... but he did tell me he’d come like a thief in the night and I should stay ready.

    Zhaire Smith, Troy Brown Jr., Kevin Huerter, Keita Bates-Diop, Elie Okobo and the sleeper Jerome Robinson--at least one will be available at #21.

    Other dark horse picks -- Melvin Frazier, Gary Trent Jr. and Chandler Hutchison.

    I would dump Epke and bring Bradley in.

    I know his numbers totally speak otherwise, but your comment about him being a Collins brother, I think, really hit the nail on the head of my lack of enthusiasm about him.

    I think Ekpe is criminally underrated. If we had someone like Niko, Ekpe’s 15-17 minutes a night will almost look like Gobert. Almost.

    That's not very informative... I genuinely like to see other's thoughts, maybe I can learn something here, you've assuredly thought of players from different angles than I have, but the snarky remarks are just annoying.

    I'd be surprised if that happens. Could happen if they keep Favors.

    He is great defensively, but he has hands made of bricks and very poor touch in the paint.

    Yes, but if if there are decent offensive threats in the second unit, or if he spends a reasonable amount alongside someone like Niko, it’s a lot less noticeable.

    Yep. I wasn't joking either. Everything about his body (out of shape, huge ***), and lumbering up and down the court, with minimal vert, reek of them.

    What's the story on Billy Preston? He appears to ooze talent but is so far off the draft radar that he doesn't even show up on mocks. Maybe we could take a flyer on him at 52?

    He is really fast up and down the court for a guy his size. He doesn't lumber at all. He isn't out of shape either. By the end of the season he looked great.

    I think Bradley is supposed to be our budget version of Steven Adams.

    He was 12.0% body fat at the combine a year ago. Those numbers are usually ******** (I remember fatass Deron being 6.0% at one point :rolleyes:) so it wouldn't surprise me if he was more like 14-16%. I doubt he got lean and cut (as he doesn't remotely look it), so yeah, I'd guess he's still somewhere around 10-11%...and he does run in a sort of lumbering manner.

    Character concerns. There will be a very nice crop of undrafted players this year.

    I was doing some research on Preston today am Gilles is right character concerns. He doesn't play defense either but as a project for the SLC stars I say yes.
