    I think Admiral Schofield fits our team's profile perfectly. He seems like a future Jae Crowder type. Hard worker, coaches love him, big, strong, can shoot the 3.

    "Admiral Schofield | Tennessee | Sr | SG | 6-6

    Schofield was just a 3-star prospect coming out of high school -- a 6-5 forward from Illinois who wasn't even considered a top-250 recruit in the Class of 2015, according to 247Sports. Now he's 6-6 with a sculpted body and reputation for being a tireless worker who is loved by his coaches, all of which helped him average 16.5 points and 6.1 rebounds this season for a Tennessee team that spent four weeks ranked No. 1. The fact that Schofield made more than 40 percent of 393 3-point attempts in the past three seasons suggests he'll be a real threat from the perimeter when he gets to the NBA."

    Wasn't that impressed with THT from that highlight video, he has length but everyone at the next level has strength, which he somewhat relies on. He's longer, but I see him similar to NWG

    I like THT. He's raw, but he's still very young and there is potential there. He will not contribute right away, but he has interesting physical attributes and may turn out to be a diamond in the rough.

    Another guy I really like is Matisse Thybulle. He's billed as the best defender in college basketball. That reputation was earned in a system of zone defence, so there's no guarantee that it will translate perfectly to the NBA, but he has the attributes and instincts. Comes up with a lot of steals and blocks and doesn'f foul much. Quin should like that. His 3pt shooting wasn't great this year but over his entire college career was decent enough. Could become a good 3 and D guy and you can never have enough of those.

    Funny you should say that. Nba draftnet listed his NBA comparison as...Jae Crowder!

    I think they are a lot alike although I think Schofield will be able to play a little more at the 2.

    I'm fine with Schofield in the 2nd, but that'd be a pretty big reach in the 1st imo.

    Young undersells THT, doesn't turn 19 until late November. An 18 year old with that frame (6'4 240 with elite length) and a solid feel for the game is just a dream building block in today's game.

    The NWG mention is just ridiculous. THT has 40-50 lbs on him.

    I see too many 3 and d type options in this thread. Those guys are sort of easy to find. Hell, sign Gerald Green on an ultra cheap contract if that's all we need. But it's not.

    Cy was right about Brandon Clarke I think. Kid is really ****ing good offensively and we need playmakers on offense and he fills up the stat sheet in other ways. 16.9 points per game on 68.7% from the field (70.5% from 2), 8.6 rebounds, 1.9 assists, 1.2 steals, 3.1 blocks. And that's in just 28.1 minutes a game. Now, we need a 4 who can stretch the floor and I'm not sure he's that but if we like what we see so far as his perimeter game (production and form) in pre-draft games and summer workouts, I think he has too much two-way potential to pass up. Zag guys scare me as they're always ultra-efficient on offense and their conference blows but he looks really ****ing good (passes eye test) and the numbers back that up. The question is, can he work on his shot and hit the 3 at a respectable rate in the league?

    Thybulle averaged 5.7 total steals and blocks but less than 10 points a game. He's not what we need right now.

    I don't see Nigel Williams-Goss as a comparison for Horton-Tucker (if that's who NWG is). I see someone more like a Corey Magette. Strong, shifty and able to finish. I'm hoping he measures at least 6'5" in shoes. Also, I think his wingspan might be more like 7'2" or 7'3".

    Clarke is a plus athlete, but I'm concerned about his lack of offensive development given his age. I don't see him being a natural scorer, but an energy guy who can defend 4 positions.

    He has a really nice post-game imo.

    Yeah, it'd be super nice if Talen was still growing (not unreasonable).

    Clarke would be amazing, but I'd guess he's out of range unless we were looking to trade up.

    Admiral Schofield did so well in the March madness tournament, I think he has a shot climbing into the late first if he does great in the nba combine and workouts. It wouldn't surprise me if he did.

    Watching this series tells me just how badly we need pure shooters.

    Dylan Windler, Cam Johnson, or Tyler Herro. I want one of these guys. I'd be happy with Brandon Clarke or PJ Washington too though.

    Honestly, I'm not too geeked on this draft. I don't see anyone of good value at 20-25 I would expect to be an impact player.

    If we can move the pick as part of a trade to bring in an impact vet, I am all for it.

    there is no way that schofield can or will ever play the 2. he's a 3/4. and in regards to this draft, i don't like it save for the top couple picks and think lindsey would be prudent to use the pick as part of a trade.

    I'm pretty geeked about Kabengele. I think he's a legit 2-way stretch big with an intense motor.

    I have a feeling the Jazz are going to end up trading their pick.
