Who's showing out?

They had a mock draft going with great breakdowns from the panel. Fran has have us pegged for Terrance Ferguson cause he thinks he's a lights out shooter that plays D. Referenced him as our type of culture guy.

Don't want Ferguson at #14. I'm an Aussie, I saw enough of him play for my Adelaide 36ers. Don't get me wrong, kid has talent and athleticism. But he's a project in every sense of the word.

Doubt he falls much further than 8th but Monk would be great for us. Richardson is about all I would be willing to use to trade up but he's likely not enough

He actually has "Booker potential" with NBA athleticism

Frank Isola tends to think the Knicks are locked in on him. Even mentioned they had a scout babysit him this past season.

They didn't learn from the failed Rodrique Beaubois experiment? Someone in that scouting department LOVES French PGs, likely after being torn up by Tony Parker all these years. :lol:

Looks like I was wrong. Mavericks would draft an enigma.

I really don't like any of the options at 14, I really think if the 76ers would do i would do a draft and trade with the 76ers for Richaun Homes and a 2nd rounder for McRoberts and the 14th. Holmes has talent and would be great fit next to Whiteside while on the 76ers he will be buried on the bench behind Simons, Covington and Saric.

Give me Mitchell all day. Would signal a trade of TJ if he comes on board. TJ could be dealt for a late first in order to get a big man.

Jackson, a skilled defender who dramatically improved his three-point shooting last season, would welcome Miami selecting him.

"It’s obvious they have a great organization run by great people who have been around the NBA a long time," he said. "Their whole set-up is really appealing. That would be a blessing [going to Miami]. It’s a great city" too.

Jackson is viewed as a secondary option for the Heat, a consideration only if a handful of other players - such as Collins and Kennard, among others - aren’t available at 14.

In your opinions who are some two way contract guys we can pick up coming out of this draft class?

Kobe Simmons is a guy that I think would be awesome to pick up and mold in our system.

I believe Kennard could be a 12+ ppg scorer his rookie season. If we were to trade a guard or 2 on draft night, I'd highly consider drafting him.

I worry about defense with him, but I have to admit that workout was extremely impressive.

I hope Justin Jackson really isn't a secondary option sheesh. Mans is trash.

at this point i would want in order.

1. Donovan Mitchell
2. Zach Collins
3. Luke Kennard
4. Harry Giles
