The biggest draft storyline of late is Aaron Nesmith breaking his foot and being out for the season..

Really sucks.. I honestly think he deserved NPOY consideration if you were judging it on what we've seen so far..

Nwora gets lots of attention and deservedly so, his team is also much better, but I think Nesmith was playing better than him so far this season. hard to argue with the insane %s he was shooting at a high rate.

I wonder how its gonna affect his stock. Not too much I dont think.

Devastating blow for JErry Stackhouse and Vanderbilt tho. They are gonna get pummeled now. Maybe they give once highly touted Croatian prospect Oton Jankovic some burn.

Davion Mitchell is a player whos not really talked about or on the radars, one thing for sure is he's an NBA quality athlete.. only like 6'1" but if he were to get a combine invite he'd post explosive #'s.

Extremely strong performance by Anthony Edwards yesterday. He dropped 20 in the first half vs Tennessee.

That might be enough to push him up to #1 on my board.

So, as a Norwegian, I'm not really used to any fellow countrymen being mentioned in basketball circles, but there's a bit of a buzz around Harald Frey at Montana State. Have any of you college ball aficionados heard of him? Does he have any chance at all of playing in the NBA?

I can think of plenty of storylines bigger than a possible late first rounder breaking his foot. Lol

"Biggest," he says...

I travel to Bozeman about once a month and I remember a buzz/talk about him last season but totally forgot about him. I'll try and catch a game during my next trip, but after watching highlights, I think he's a longshot to the NBA.

Actually, I think it was Tyler Hall of Montana State I heard about. He was selected 4th overall in the '19 G League Draft and plays for the Westchester Knicks. Looks like he's been lighting it up.

Pretty boy Deni Avdija could be an interesting prospect. Looks like he'll be an overseas project though. Anyone hear of him or like his game? He has a lot of hype online.

Daniel Oturu could be a Favors-esque replacement. Good at footwork, moves, rebounding, and defense. Not sure if he's good with his outside shots but he hits a 3 in this highlight clip.

Ab N'Doye could be a cheap version of what we thought we were getting when we drafted Exum.

Guard, 6-foot-7, 21 years old

The lengthy, versatile combo guard with a 7-foot-3 wingspan is enjoying his best professional season. He is averaging 11.4 points, 4.6 rebounds and 3.8 assists per game so far this season. N’Doye is shooting a personal-best 41.4 percent from three-point range. The guard also connected on 40.0 percent of his three-pointers during FIBA Junior events at the U20 Euro Championship A in 2018. After testing the waters last season, he may be feeling ready for NBA action next season. If not, the draft-and-stash route they took with Didi Louzada Silva could be a viable option.

DeAndre Williams looks interesting too. Reminds me a lil of Hakim Warrick.

Big, 6-foot-9, 22 years old

Williams has been one of the most underrated players in the NCAA and has earned rising draft consideration with his play. The freshman seemingly never misses, putting up 16.9 points per game. He is shooting 48.3 percent from three-point range and has been one of the most accurate shooters off the catch. He is also putting up insane numbers as a pick-and-pop threat, too, averaging 2.1 points per possession on these opportunities. That ranks as the most efficient in the NCAA this season. He has also grabbed 7.7 rebounds, 1.2 steals and 1.1 blocks per game.

Sam Vecenie has a new 2 round mock draft. Let me know if there's any players you want to see.

He has us taking Tre Jones, just like the ESPN+ guys. Third Tre's the charm...
The Jazz have turned to Donovan Mitchell to stabilize the point guard position due to Mike Conley’s injury issues and some ineffectiveness there. They also don’t really have a great long-term option as a backup point guard after dealing Dante Exum.

Jones has been really quite terrific this season for Duke despite missing a few games. He’s averaging 14.2 points and 7.2 assists while still playing absolutely elite level defense at the point of attack. He still is struggling to shoot it, but it looks a bit better this season than it’s been in the past. His ability to distribute and get all of his teammates involved is elite, and he’s a way better athlete than he gets credit for, capable of buzzing in and out of the lane. Even if the shooting never totally comes along, it’s hard to see how Jones ends up being worse than a backup point guard. If it does come along, he has starter upside.

I view him as Bradley Beal with much better measurables. Dude is built like a 30 year old body builder. A Bradley Beal thats not built like a 14 year old is a scary thought.

Some 2020 Draft thoughts:

Still really like Wieskamp. He started the year off slow, but is starting to play very strong. Great conference numbers.

Reggie Perry is a name I'm really interested in now. Undersized center with a big frame w/ ball-handling/passing ability and shooting upside. Similar to Bam Adebayo but slightly less long. Plays out of position in college. Starting to put up some monster games.
