Think it's just a fluke thing like Hayward's 2nd season at Butler.
Coby White from UNC. He probably gets picked ahead of us, but I think he could start in the NBA at either backcourt position. He's a real shooter, a good enough athlete, and a good ball mover who can create off the bounce.
I don't know why people are calling this a weak draft. It looks pretty good to me. There's high-end talent and depth through 16 - 18 picks. Plus, a few decent bigs in the mid - late 1st round. I mean, it's not super deep, but it's decent.
We have no idea who is going to declare.
The guy isnt a PG. Watch the Duke game. He got absolutely demolished by Tre Jones.
Here's a guy who's built like Amir Johnson and can shoot. He's fairly athletic if he can get a running start. He may be a bit more mobile, but I'm not sure he's better than Sagaba Konate.
Not a great outing for UK today. Tennessee's PG Jordan Bone is good enough to get drafted in the 2nd round, imo.
Jordan Bone isnt good.
Really really doubt Bone comes out. He's a good college player, but I doubt he'd get drafted.
I completed a top 60 big board but I already disagree with it.
More Okpala. He's not going to drop to us. His floor is probably about 15 or 16, imo.
Rui Hachimura looks a bit bigger and stronger this year. His ability to play with a high motor and high IQ should keep him in the league. Whether he's a starting-caliber player will depend on his lateral movement defensively and developing more consistency as a shooter, but he's showing real improvement. If he works out well he could go late lottery, imo.
Luka Samanic needs to add strength and get more reps on his jumper. He could eventually be a starting caliber PF with shooting range. He's athletic enough to compete. He's also showing a bit more skill off the bounce than Jerebko, whom I compared him to in the past. He's a realistic option near the end of the first round. Not super exciting, but whatever.
You mean to tell me you can't even agree with yourself?
Darius Bazley has fallen off the radar, since he's doing his internship with New Balance and passing on college and the G-League. He's got some upside though and might be worth taking on as a project.
Don’t draft anyone. Just take a hard pass.
I could see the Jazz trading the pick along with Favors if they get offered the right deal.
At this point, the following 10 players should be expected to go in the lottery and thus be off the board for the Jazz:
Zion Williamson, RJ Barrett, Ja Morant, Cam Reddish, Jarrett Culver, Deandre Hunter, Keldon Johnson, Rui Hachimura, Bol Bol, Sekou Doumbouya
So 15 players the Jazz would be looking at would include:
Nickeil Alexander-Walker, Darius Garland, Romeo Langford, Jaxson Hayes, Nassir Little, Brandon Clarke, Coby White, Kezie Okpala, Jontay Porter, PJ Washington, Goga Bitadze, Kevin Porter Jr., Daniel Gafford, Tyler Herro, maybe Isaiah Roby
Hey, check out this guy Chuma Okeke at Auburn -- 11.3 ppg, 6.6 rpg, 2.0 apg, 1.6 spg, 1.2 bpg, .358 3pt on 3.7 att/game. Seems like a value pick.
He lists 6'8", 230 lbs, 7'0" ws. He's a switchy defender on the floor and in the post.
if the Jazz are going to make a draft day trade this would be my target. maybe this years pick and future first might be enough. I dont know
