Not a huge fan of Cole Anthony either, but there's not really any chance we reach for him at 4, so I don't really have any string feelings towards him. Was a bit disappointed in UNC's play this year, but can't really blame that on Anthony. He may have looked better on a better team.
I see Derrick Williams all over again with Toppin. Or Aaron Gordon. I think if you plan on bringing him in as an energy bench player, he can do that, but not much else.
Cole Anthony in the late lottery could make sense. I'm not a fan of Deni at anything higher than 7.
Yeah I can definitely see the Derrick Williams comps. Honestly Aaron Gordon is still a better prospect because of his defensive effort. That's one of Toppin's biggest weaknesses. He's an awful defender on the perimeter and in the paint.
Cole Anthony may have been a decent get had we not jumped in the draft. My only concern would be his redundancy with Coby. We disagree on Deni. I'm a huge fan, and am really hoping for him at 4. I'm sure I'm in the minority, but I think he's going to end up being the best player in this draft.
