I dunno, seems like a 7’4 wing will be a death knell in the NBA, but if it works out, hallelujah
We keep talking about this draft being weak but there are some very interesting players to watch and eventually pick,Poku is one of them.
Well, it is an enormously weak draft class. That cannot be stressed enough. We’ve known for a couple of years now how weak it was going to be, and honestly it’s weaker than was initially even thought
There are examples of people saying a draft is weak when it’s really not. 2019 was supposed to be a weak draft, but anyone who followed that class knew that it was extremely deep. Same with 2017 (2019 might even be stronger than ‘17). 2020 is just plain weak, there’s no getting around it. There’s some interesting prospects but overall, it’s just downright bad, especially considering 2021 is going to be one of the greatest drafts of all time
I’m aware that Howard isn’t projected, which is why we were saying on the previous page how criminal it’d be if he didn’t get taken. I definitely want the Bulls to take him with the 2nd. Markus Howard has one of the most glorious jumpers I have ever seen
Pokusevsky IMO is the most intriguing prospect in the class with the highest ceiling. Very very low floor, but if he stays healthy & keeps improving like he has been, the dude looks like a homeless person’s white Durant. His size is concerning though. We’ve never seen a 7’4 person succeed long term in the NBA, let alone a 7’4 person who plays point forward & will be handling the ball/pivoting constantly/etc. Seems like it’s a horrific injury waiting to happen, but according to his camp/coaches, he’s very strong & durable for someone so huge
