I don't think so. Skal is the better prospect IMO. He's been the better prospect all along. Just not for like... 20+ GMs in the league.
Yeah, Skal looked like the better prospect tonight, though Chriss didn't look too shabby either with 17, 7, 5 blocks, 2 assists, 2 steals and 2 3's.
At the draft I felt like they had about the same level of potential, which is one reason why I thought the trade was good for the Kings. Also, being a Bulls fan, it reminded me of the trade our team made to get Doug McDermott (we traded two picks to get him...picks that ended up being Gary Harris and Jusuf Nurkic).
But like like I said earlier, only time will tell. Chriss is good and if he continues to develop the trade might not look bad. And, as you point out, Skal looked good tonight. It's possible that he might just be on a hot streak.
