I assume you have Fultz, Ball, Jackson as top 3? I would not be terribly upset with Tatum, Smith or Monk either.


Monk really does not look like my cup of tea. His metrics are pretty bad (short wingspan for his height) and aside from shooting/scoring, his numbers are unimpressive. Fox to me is the Kentucky guy of interest. With our teams needs, we may benefit from moving down for more picks. Can anyone tell me more about this point guard on Wichita?

Maybe Frank > Fox. Fox has the right approach to the game and can grow, but not exactly basketball talent oozing out of his pores.

Let's hope we get Dennis.

Shamet looked good. Who will be Phil's annual Wichita draft pick?

His arms didn't look deficient to me, but he also (being young) clearly is not there with the muscle mass yet. What concerns me is that we want a player who will play well and create for KP. At 2.3 apg, I just don't know if he will pair well.

posters mention josh jackson as possible pick. first off he got a hitch in his shot and thats a big big no-no. also he look like he need another year in school. only 6.8 i don't see a nba ready player. also he got off court issues?

I honestly would trade the pick if we're left with Monk.

Jackson will not drop lol.
Possibly have a chance getting Fox. But he might go top 5. He has elite end to end speed.

I don't think Ball is can't miss. Why is this considered such a deep draft again?

These opponents have some real good gameplans, nobody is going off on anyone for the most part. Hard to judge the prospects in situations like this.

I wouldn't be too judgmental based on the play so far.
If winning matters, the role shouldn't.....the results should.

I think it's because there's 5-6 guys that could go in almost any order 1-5 or 5. And another 5-6 guys that could go in almost any order 6-10. Draft order is nowhere near as set as most people seem to think right now. I don't think I'd like this draft 15-30 and even 2nd round looks thin imo

JKidd with an ability to score. He's a true PG that makes the players around him better. Fultz , Ball and Jackson..Is the draft order.

Yeah, it was funny how there were guys bashing him earlier in the game. Seriously? :nonono:
The skills , tools and length are there. He passes the eye test for me. Should have that Greek Freek impact, making offensive and defensive plays.
