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.


I am a huge fan of pascal and he is one of the tops on my list for the Jazz. He is being grossly misused this year at nova. He plays way to much on the wing instead of a big inside. He is best suited to be a robin to a batman.

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.

there is something about Bazley that makes me question his mental make up. I can't remember what it is but he worries me.

What would be funny is if he gets drafted in the second round and has to spend a couple years in the gleague. The league he decided not to play in

I think Chuma Okeke is draftable starting around 18-20, maybe higher. He can do a bit of everything. Career 37% 3-pt shooter. Good athlete. Great defensive reactions as shown by rebounds on the move and two blocks against Ja Morant.

I'm starting to like him as much as OG Anunoby.

He's physically underdeveloped. He needs at least 15 lbs. He has athleticism, fluidity and ball skills that are unique for a 6'9"/6'10" player. Not sure about the mental makeup, but he needs more strength for his tools to come into play. If he hits, he has some star potential. If not, he's like Chris McCullough from Syracuse that didn't make it.

Luka Samanic should be on the Jazz's short list for the late first round. Good size. Good athleticism. Good skillset. Still young. He sets a good benchmark.

He'd be getting more pub if he played in the NCAA

Matisse Thybulle's defensive stats are off the charts -- 3.5 steals and 2.2 blocks per game as a guard. Interesting guy to look at in the 2nd round. He can hit spot-up 3s too.

Chuma Okeke with a good game in Auburn's upset of Tennessee -- 22 pts (9-14, 3-5 from 3-pt), 5 rebs & 4 stls. Look for him to rise a bit on draft boards.


General highlights and a few athletic moves --

i know we discussed dylan windler a bit in last year's draft thread, not sure if he's been brought up yet in this 2019 thread, but dude is having a monster year. probably one of the top 5 in all of college basketball. 22 and 11, 55% FGs, 44% 3pt (on 7 attempts per game), TS% of 69%. worth a watch tonight vs Ja Morant in the OVC championship game.

I say this as a joking criticism. You must have 45 guys in the 1st round.

He's really skinny and upright athletically.

I watched a few minutes of Dean Wade then a few of Dylan Windler. I hope if the jazz draft another senior with limited upside it comes in the second round.

I Liked Wade's passing. Windlers body language looked a little cipherish... reminded of a former sulky jazzmen who's name escapes me.

Funny you should mention Dylan Windler:

Not really. Only a few guys I've mentioned are first round prospects. Okeke could be in the Jazz's range. Samanic could be on the fringe if he rises up.

@Seattle: It's no secret that the Jazz like big wings with IQ who can initiate and run pick-and-roll. Are you sure Windler is really a first-round prospect though?

Gotta think DL and Quin have a hard on for Matisse Thybulle.

I also think Robert Franks would be a good fit. Can really score the ball in the stretch 3/4 mold.
