    I think he’s saying that the draft is viewed as being weak and there’s a lot of teams trying to move picks and trade down or out of the 1st round as a result. Because there’s a lot of teams looking to get rid of picks (sellers) the Jazz should be looking to get value as a team looking to move up or into the 1st round (as a buyer).

    At least, that’s how I’m reading it. I’m on board with that idea - especially because that’s EXACTLY how they traded up into the late 1st round in 2013 for Rudy Gobert. That was considered a weak draft, but it ended up with 4 stellar players being drafted outside the top 5. C. J. McCollum (10), Steven Adams (12), Giannis Antetokounmpo (15) and Rudy Gobert (27). There will be value in this draft somewhere.

    Tony Jones wrote an article in the athletic about Eric Paschall. Some interesting bits.

    Cuz we have no roster spots after re-upping Favors and promoting Mitrou-Long and Cavanaugh. Expect ZAnik, Lindsey's new mouthpiece to say he likes the team, tried all he could to improve the roster, but the available FA's just want too much money. So he's selling both picks for a net $5M to "invest" in the future of the team.

    I'd say right now my 2 favorites at 23 are Davis and Paschall.

    Both super athletic and strong for their positions. Both are capable shooters.

    Liking Paschall as well. Dude gets up very well, not only for his size, but overall.

    Bol Bol a "top 5 talent in this draft" according to Schmitz. You almost have to take him if he slips that far. Could be trade bait.

    Dammit, I'm kind of falling for Carsen Edwards, even though my brain is telling me not to. I've seen him mocked mostly from the mid 20s to the late 30s, but I wouldn't be surprised if NBA teams are higher on him than the draft analysts. I could see him going late teens.

    Is Bol Bol fully recovered from his injuries or is he still recovering? I'd be shocked if he fell in the 20s.

    If Paschall is so long and athletic (which he is), why are his rebounding numbers so crappy?

    C'mon man. We predict all the time what we think teams want and need. We all do research, read up, etc.

    As a TN resident, I get the impression that Memphis doesn't care about 2019-20 space all that much. They are going to undergo a long rebuild. They have their two franchise players in Morant and JJJ. They understand no good free agent wants to join right now and Parsons is an expiring.

    I think they would love to dump all of Conley's 2019-20 money but it isn't a priority.

    Paschall is another one of these fairly safe picks. He should be a top-8 rotation player, and he should be versatile enough to keep Quin's system moving. He'll defend. He'll swing the ball. He'll make at least a minimum number of his shots. He can take some smaller guys in the paint. I see him as another glue guy, someone who can play 18 or 20 minutes and contribute on both ends. I'm not seeing him as an upside play. The Jazz need guys like that, and having a player on rookie-scale is a good thing, but in the bigger picture, the Jazz may need to be more aggressive in the draft. I'm looking for Zanick to make a signature move.

    If we got Rudy at #27 and traded up from #24 to get Mitchell, we should be trying to catch lightening one more time.

    Paschall is a reach. I dont believe it. and I'll be underwhelmed if thats the pick. At this spot in the draft, where we've been quite a bit this decade,I always say the same thing, we will have oppotunity at lotto projected guys who fall, like rudy and rodney... and thats why u can't sell me on Paschall..

    He is a good athlete, fairly skilled, competitive and has NBA frame. Turns 23 Nov 4th right at the start of the season though, and for that I dont like it.. 4 year rookie deal he'll be just about 27 going into his second deal.

    Paschall = a swing for a double... not a home-run...

    He has some lower leg injury history already too,, and he's a big dude at near 260lbs..

    Bol bol will get drafted by either the celtics or the hawks who have multiple first round picks.

    Both teams can afford to gamble with him.

    I like Paschall but I have concerns about him too. I'm not sure that his outside shot translates. His mechanics are so wonky. His legs are all over the place when he shoots it. It's not a repeatable form. It's also a slow shot that takes him a while to load up. I have concerns about his lack of rebounding production. I also have concerns about him defensively. He was a solid college defender but his movement on film is a little rigid. And his body is so wide he's gonna get stuck on some screens.

    I do like his bball iq a lot. And his ability to faceup, handle and drive.

    Overall I see his upside being a rotation player. I'm with Catchall that we need to aim higher on the upside meter.
