    If Utah could pull Butler, or Grant Riller in the middle of the 2nd rd that would be tremendous value.


    Neemias Queta is probably going undrafted. But will be a guy teams are looking to sign on draft night... Like i said long ago when he first hit the radar (and Embiid comparisons were being floated).. "This guy reminds me of Ian Mahinmi"

    Ur talking about Hofstra's 2nd leading scorer this season - Eli Pemberton, 6'5" Senior SG. Right?

    If he measures out like Derrick Favors, he's a real commodity. You think he's 6'8" or 6'9"?

    Guys I really like for the Jazz in the early 20s:
    - Jaden McDaniels (if he drops)
    - Theo Maledon (if he drops)
    - Aaron Nesmith (if he drops) -- Dude's a knockdown shooter from lots of angles. Good size and adequate athleticism at 6'6".
    - Jahmi'us Ramsey -- He's going to be a good pro. He has an NBA body and NBA game that's ready to go, and he's not even 19 yet. I think he's underrated and should go mid-first round. He looks like a guy who could start for the Rockets ahead of Daniel House and Ben McLemore.
    - Leandro Bolmaro -- a 6'8" wing with a handle who plays with pace, gets downhill, passes with vision and timing, and has some competitive fire. He'd be a great get.

    Guys I'm okay with more or less in the early 20s:
    -- Tre Jones -- He's bigger and better than Tyus and could probably run a team as a starting point without getting killed defensively.
    -- Jalen Smith -- Think Thomas Bryant with a bit more rebounding and effort on defense.
    -- Paul Reed -- 6'9" versatile defender and rebounder that might allow the Jazz to play guys like Conley and Bogdanovic at the same time. He can score a bit. A better version of Kevon Looney or Moe Harkless.

    Nice video on Bolmaro. He's 6'7" with a 6'8" wingspan (like Gordon Hayward), and some of his floor vision and passing is reminiscent of Ricky Rubio. A guy that size with his handle and ability to get downhill is a valuable player.

    Florida's Scottie Lewis announced he's returning for his sophomore season.

    Reggie Perry was at the NBA combine last year. He's 6'8" without shoes. 7' 1/2" wingspan.

    He's added quite a bit of strength in the last few years, he can bang down low in the NBA. Think he can fit in as a backup C for sure, if he keeps developing his skill he could end up a PF after all tho.

    I'd compare him more to a Richaun Holmes, who was actually extremely effective this year as a starter. Perry has more natural offensive talent but he's not naturally explosive like Holmes.

    I'm interested to see what kind of vert #'s Perry will post, I think what you wanna watch for progress. His #'s last year in that part of the testing were underwhelming. 31 1/2" max vert 28" standing, some of the lowest posted.

    Yeah, looked up his combine numbers. He had an 8'10" standing reach. He needs at least a couple inches there to play the 5 full time, imo. He's a big dude at 250 lbs, who in today's NBA is probably a 5. He's probably skilled enough to play like Nurkic, if he's big enough.

    We know what he is dude. He was at the combine last year. No need to speculate.

    I'm assuming the Jazz won't be able to have their annual cattle call where they bring guys in and put them through their paces like in years past. I'm not sure how effective that exercise really was in getting an NBA ready player.

    Yes, working players out in person is probably useless. Real galaxy brain stuff there homey.

    Yeah, he's a 5, not a 4. I would compare him to Bobby Portis. He doesnt really play much defense, isn't as mobile on the perimeter as he looks, and I doubt he will be a rim protector in the NBA. Projecting him to play like Nukic is a huge leap and probably never going to happen, he just doesnt have that size.

    Portis turned into a really soft jumpshot dominant player though, so maybe Perry can develop differently (as in better face-up game attacking the basket to draw contact), but that is a the path the 4/5 tweeners often take to be NBA relevant.

    Super interesting player here. Very young for a Junior, having just turned 20 this past December. Didnt do much his first two years.

    Obviously the very top echelon of freak athletes but is he actually good at basketball? Not really sure.

    well the question really is; will he be good at NBA basketball?? Ehhh... He's worth taking a flyer on..

    Y'all might remember J.P. Tokoto 58th pick of the 2015 draft from UNC --- Stanley's better than him for sure, has a better chance...


    HE's not really even close to as good at basketball as Justin James who went mid-2nd rd last year and was a Senior. I'd kinda use those 2 players as bookmarks.

    Ultimately, a player that gets way more attention because ESPN puts every duke game on TV.

    His short arms hinder his defensive potential, which is what worries me.

    Certainly has creative handling and passing ability, but that's about all I see with him as far as NBA ability goes.
