    I really like watching him create his own shot. He scores inside so well. His three looks fluid motion-wise but sometimes flat. But I think he plays a lot like LaVine in that he attacks whenever he gets the ball and it often looks easy.

    It would be nice to have someone alongside Mitchell who can create his own shot.

    I haven’t watched a ton but he swatted AD a few weeks ago and I was like WTF was that. He seems to move well, shoot well, and has size.

    I don’t fault our FO for missing him as there was almost no buzz on him at all... just shows that actually using those second rounders on guys that may/may not work out... you can tell pretty quickly sometimes when you are on to something.

    It's like the slogan for the lottery..."you cant win if you don't play." What can the Jazz do with spare cash, other than increase earnings? It's not like they've been spending the money they've received for players. Jazz were bottom-3 (if not last) for around 4 years, spent in a half-*** attempt to retain Hayward and are again in the bottom half of the league. Lindsey always talks a good game; i.e. maintaining "financial flexibility" in order to be players in free agency. But surprise, every year he's astonished at the price teams are willing to pay for free agents. He's wasted/sold so many 2nd rounders. Just imagine had he found a couple of decent rotation players. The team would be better and he'd have some trade capital. Instead he has a few players he won't trade and a ton that have very little trade value.

    I like Kurucs in the 2nd round. He went before our pick, I think, and the Jazz traded with Houston.

    DeAndre Hunter vs Duke should be a good game

    If DL can get him somehow, we'll have our own "Pascal Siakam".

    Well said. I have never had a problem with DL's intent, just his lack of initiative and negotiation skills. Just like I love that Korver is on the team, but I truly believe that we could've gave up less assets to get him.

    I like him a lot. I think if he gets in with a team that can develop his shot he can be a steal of the draft. Like Cy said he has the physical profile, the touch and some good level skill to his game. He's one of the better prospects in a suspect draft. I wish he would fall to us, but the way things are going I doubt it happens.

    And I've watched all the Iowa games since conference play, and I do see what PGAB says about Wieskamp. He's a guy who could be a lottery pick next year if he shows more stuff on-ball. He's a damn good shooter with a 6'10+ wingspan.

    Hunter is more like OG Anunoby than Pascal Saikam, imo, but his offense looks to be developing fast. He's using subtle hesitations on his dribble-drives and he's got some jab-step, mid-range moves that look a bit similar to Kawhi Leonard. It looks like he's been studying tape of Kawhi.

    8-8 FGs, 6-6 from 3. yeah, he can play a bit.

    let me ask you though, Cy, i didn't see the game, but what did you think of dosunmu of illinois? he didn't have a great game, especially from 3, but otherwise how did he look?

    I think Hunter has a solid chance at having a career as good as Zion Williamson. I'm not sure exactly how Zion's bulk and power are going to help him at the next level, and I think he'll struggle with NBA length. Last year, Miles Bridges routinely made dominating plays with his athleticism--blowing past guys and dunking over guys--but in the pros, he's had limited success trying to get the same looks. It's just a different game. At 6'6", Zion is going to have to be more of a jump shooter and he's going to have to tighten his handle. The guy Zion may resemble in the pros could be Paul Millsap, imo.

    Disagree. I caught 20 games of Siakam at NMSU too, he was my favorite player in college that year.

    Sounds like Givony has him as a first round guy. 6'5" frosh who had been killing it the previous 5 games.

    Reminds me of Iman Shumpert, Shumpert was obviously a lil more of a raw athletic beast, 36" standing vert at the combine -- thats 2" higher than anyone in last years draft, so keep that in mind.... He's the best guard from Chicago in many years. An extremely interesting fit next to Mitchell. It'd be a double-combo guard look, it could work tho.

    Dynamic offensive player, he is most excellent at playing down-hill. Has a 1st rd set of tools, and easily in this thinner field of pg's. He's a guy u look at and say he's got a chance to be a starter, there's just not that

    For 6'5" he's rather slippery with the ball. Not as good of a 3pt shooter as he's shown so far this year, totally expecting a fall off, if he was a legit 40% guy ur talking lotto pick..

    I actually haven't checked DX's board all year til just the other day, i thought when I put Dosunmu in the top-20 in my mock I was first, but we have them right in the same range.

    He's very interesting in the sense of 'what is this kid gonna look like in a bunch of years with extra strength. He looks like he can draw a lot of FT's consistently to me...

    No way do u take Lu Dort over Dosunmu. No way would Utah. Not this front office. A team that prides itself on player development will go with Ayo Dosunmu. Great name too.
