    Yep but I think Clark would do well as a 4. His 3 point shot isnt awful. But of you throw in his age and I think he slips.

    Reddish had great measurements that will help him even with his subpar play.

    For the teams from 4-8 I'd have a hard time passing on him. I think he has the highest ceiling of those guys in that range. I think he doesn't get past Cleveland.

    I've been too busy to follow the prospects this year, unfortunately. Any buzz about who the Jazz are interested in? My uneducated take is that we either trade out, or trade WAY up somehow (like top 7 or 8). I've heard this is a weaker draft, so all it takes is one GM who doesn't love any prospect to trade out. And if we stay put we take Dylan Windler. What're everyone else's too early predictions?

    There hasn't been much mentioned other than some discussion of late first-round guys on the Jazz's radar. Dylan Windler and Jordan Nwora are two names I remember. Also, I don't think the Jazz have what it takes to move up more than a handful of spots in the draft. Maybe Grayson Allen or Tony Bradley + #23 could get the team to #17 or #16, assuming that team really likes one of those guys. I don't see how the Jazz can trade into the lottery though, and I'm not sure the talent outside the top 10 or so picks justifies trading up.

    Yeah probably not. Trade out seems much more likely. Wonder if the Jazz would take a flyer on a high risk player like Bol Bol, Bazley, or some other low floor/high ceiling guy.

    The talent in this draft really flattens out by the mid-teens. The guys in my signature are mostly late first-round, but they could easily turn out to be as good or better than guys being talked about in the lottery.

    Also, as much as I'm not excited to draft another non-athletic white guy like Dylan Windler, that guy can really play. He's got some size, he can shoot, he doesn't need much space, and he has some feel for the game. He's just not going to blow anyone away in isolation.

    I think they want a high-floor, high-ceiling guy like King or Kabengele.

    I don't see a big reason to trade up in this draft. It might be pretty easy to get into the late lottery if you wanted to...

    I think the draft turns soft after #7 or so. I could see teams trading within the 7 - 12 range. Then I could see teams trading within the 15 - 30 range. If the Jazz really wanted someone and could find a team that's high on Grayson Allen (there might still be one or two), I think the Jazz could get up into the mid-late teens, but they'd need to have someone worth making the move for. I'm just not sure who that would be at this point. Maybe Romeo Langford drops there. I also really like Nickeil Alexander-Walker for the Jazz.

    Dennis really shines in these flat drafts where other GMs have a hard time discerning talent. Remember 2013 was the weakest draft ever and it produced an MVP and DPOY.

    Hopefully those rumors that DL liked Giannis are *painfully* true and our boy really does have an eye for talent like that. I think Dennis might have his eye on someone based on his comments about liking a few guys in our range.

    He liked him so much he traded up to select Trey Burke ahead of Giannis.

    That we really like guy X thing only works if you didn't have a pick before he was selected. If you had the chance to pick them then don't say how much you liked them.

    I think I like Dylan Windler, but it might be because he's a pasty lefty that can shoot. Someone tell me he is Doug McDermott and sucks... otherwise I'm convinced he's the next Joe Ingles.

    Anyone at 23 who has NBA isolation blow by capability is either going to be severely undersized or have the IQ of a turnip.

    Or be off people's radar, like Bazley or Jalen Leque.

    Windler, despite not being the greatest run/jump athlete you'll ever see, actually has a very good first step. A first step that really isn't proportionate with his athleticism. Or maybe his first step isn't that great, just guys don't respect him. Either way i was always impressed when i watched Belmont how adept he was at beating guys off the dribble.
