    Goga Bitadze is a traditional European big, but he's really good. He has moves in the post a bit similar to Enes Kanter, but he's more skilled overall. He protects the rim, passes the ball with vision and timing, and can shoot out to 20 feet. He moves really well for a guy his size and could develop into a high-post/low-post cog like a Marc Gasol. If he can extend his shooting range, he's a star.

    How about Louis King instead. He's a 6'9" long thoroughbred athlete, a 2-way player who can shoot 3s, put the ball down and get to the rim or make a play with the pass. He can guard 2 or 3 positions. Right now he's 205 lbs, but he can add 12 - 15 lbs pretty easily. Look at the side-step, cross-over and drive from the 3-pt line starting at 0:30. One dribble and two steps from the 3-pt line to the rim.

    actually i was think just trading the pick for Dario Saric. He is probably as good as anyone we might draft

    Also check out the baseline drive with the behind-the-back dribble at the 2:35 mark.

    I still like plenty of the guys that should be there at ~20, not exactly what we need, but good players. Thybulle is a guy who's grown on me as I got a chance to watch some Pac12, I was worried the defense was a bit of a zone thing, but I don't believe that's the case and he's an alright c&s guy.

    King was a guy I was waiting for, but haven't been impressed by.

    Okeke with 18/13 and 3 stls today to help Auburn win the SEC tournament. He also shot 5/9 from 3-pt. Hopefully he enters the draft.

    An update on Okpala. Again, he should be gone by 15 or 16, but you never know.

    I like him to. One of the few guys under 20 who produces in the Euroleague. I think drafting him towards the end of the first round though may mean a 3 year wait.

    Windler has no handle and is soft offensively.

    The racism is strong with this post.

    i do not think that means what you think it means

    Racism

    "prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against someone of a different race based on the belief that one's own race is superior."

    There is nothing in that post that can be defined as racist.

    His mobility, IQ and clear position at the 2 make him a better fit in the NBA than Stauskas was, imo. Offensively, he'll fit. He's quick, he's got a quick release, and he can get to the rim a bit. The question is whether he can guard physical 2s or if they'll go right through him. He's a better player than Grayson Allen tho

    BTW, I think Coby White has clear star potential. Honestly, I think he should go in the top 10.
