    interesting top-60 by ESPN hot off the presses for this draft. I have way too many thoughts about this to list so ima just let it breathe. I'm familiar with almost all of these players if anyone has a question im chomping at the bit to spitball a bit over these topics. Alright well
    i gotta say one thing!!! Herb Jones in the top-20!!!!!! Yours truly has said many times on this forum he was my favorite 3-star recruit in the last freshman class

    Francisco Caffaro 7-footer from Argentina has commited to play for UVA. On probably a 2and done type of plan. He's the best Arentine prospect since Ginobili.




    Sophomore Oliver Sarr at Wake Forest has more upside for sure and should be primed fo r a big season.

    Francis Okoroh to Oregon and could reclass up to play college, with Keny Wooten, Bol Bol, Louis King and Okoroh who's a mauler 6'9 type they'd have the best frontcourt out west and one of the best in the nation.

    I expect '98 born Frenchman Adam Mokoka to get drafted in 2019, he withdrew from 2018 last minute.

    6'3 1/2 without shoes, 6'10 wingspan, extremely athletic and strong. Shots improving. Quick kid, major defensive potential

    Ashton Hagans officially has reclassed up to play in college for UK next season, the 6'4" combo guard is an excellent defender and plays with an excellent motor and has nice well rounded game aside from that. He's got top-20 talent and is of age to be a one-and-done.

    LMAO at some of these "super early college rankings" for next season you see..... complete trash...

    When UK lands Reid Travis, which is imminent, they easily have the #1 most complete/well-balanced team. EJ Montgomery is going to show extremely well.... Hagans too... Keldon Johnson is gonna be a lottery pick..


    Virginia should easily be one of the top teams, they should be 2...

    Kansas top 3 or 4 for sure.

    Gonzaga top 5. Duke has an awkward bunch, but Reddish has very serious upside and with he and Barrett combined they'll be fine. Javin DeLaurier will shine for them.

    Filling out the top 10 I'd have Oregon, Nevada, UNC, FSU and LSU.

    Outside of that top ten there's many schools i feel are being underappreciated, one is Vanderbilt -- their nowhere to befound on top25 lists and will be there during the szn -- 6'10 forward Simi *****u is underrated and easily one of the best athletes in the class. MSU (Mississippi), and definitely UCLA (there's lots of west coast teams to watch next szn)..

    This is my boy for nextyear

    Luka Samanic | 6-11 | PF
    Croatia | Age: 18.1

    The MVP of the Adidas Next Generation Tournament in Spain last month, Samanic showed his immense talent level and some of his shortcomings. The big man is an intriguing prospect with his ability to step out and knock down open 3s, straight-line drive with long strides, finish dynamically off of one leg, playmake on the move and score in the post against switches, showing impressive balance and touch. He gets good rotation with his feet set, but continuing to develop into a more versatile shooter and ball handler are keys to opening up the rest of his game, as his deep crouch and somewhat slow release limit him a bit. Samanic, who has a slight frame at 210 pounds, figures to rely more on pass-dribble-shoot skill at the higher levels given his so-so physicality and average length (7-0 wingspan), and cutting out some of his avoidable turnovers will be important for his growth on the perimeter.

    Samanic also can improve his intensity on the defensive end and on the backboards, as he doesn't quite have the reach to fall back on in the post. With that said, he has the feet to switch and guard the perimeter and impressive instincts in the passing lanes. Samanic is no stranger to NBA scouts, and he's had some excellent moments with Barcelona's second team in LEB Gold, most recently scoring a season-high 17 points in 25 minutes on Feb. 9. Samanic's agreement with Barcelona is up after this season, but it is appearing more and more likely that he'll return to the Spanish powerhouse before entering the 2019 draft, where he's viewed as a borderline lottery-level talent. -- MS

    Still love Hachimura

    Will keep a close eye on Jalen Smith

    I am hoping the Jazz g-league team drafts Darius Bazley. Would be interesting to see him up close

    Of course that Jazz worked out JalenMcDaniels

    Oshae Brissett might be a future option as well

    Dark hourse pick is Aric Holman

    This guy intrigues me

    Marko Simonovic | 7-0 | PF/C
    1999-born | Siena (LegaDue -- Italy 2nd Division)

    Siena, once a longtime Italian first division powerhouse and EuroLeague participant, has been slowed by financial struggles over the years and it's bled over to the on-court product. LegaDue, Italy's second division, isn't the most inspiring level of play from a global standpoint, and the late-blooming Simonovic hasn't done all that much with the minutes he's been given thus far. With that said, he's not in the best evaluation situation as he's used almost strictly as a screener and diver. The 18-year-old late-bloomer showed this summer, by averaging 17.7 PPG at the under-18s, that he's comfortable stepping out to 3 and thriving in more skill-based situations.

    Potential NBA role: Agile, Skilled PF/C

    Simonovic, who Jonathan Givony profiled more extensively in his most recent international scouting notebook, is still finding out who he is as a prospect. Formerly a perimeter player, he's extremely agile at close to 7-feet, with budding skill that should allow him to stretch the floor more consistently in time. Because he's not overly long or wide framed, being able to slide up and play some power forward as a more skilled 4 would make Simonovic far more intriguing to NBA teams. Also learning how to defend without fouling and play through physicality are on the priority list for the 18-year-old. With that said, he's a bit of blank canvas who is still at an early stage of his development.

    Outlook: Simonovic's combination of agility and offensive upside are certainly intriguing long-term, but he's quite clearly a year or two away from maximizing his draft stock. It will be interesting to see if he attends the Nike Hoop Summit in Portland, as a week of drills in front of NBA scouts will certainly work in his favor given his shooting potential and athleticism. Simonovic may also compete in the under-20 European Championships this summer with Montenegro.

    Almost forgot and I am ashamed is Killian Tillie. He would have been the best shooting big man in 2018 if he had come out.

    I think it'd be pretty cool if you made the next year's potential draftee threads each year right after the most recent draft ends. Could make it a spectacle - an event - something to look forward to.
