I think Suggs benefitted greatly in that he was surrounded by great shooters on Gonzaga. I don't see him as an upgrade over Garland.
Cade doesn't have a first step. I'm okay if a player doesn't have elite athleticism, but if you can't beat your man off the dribble in college, that's not a good sign.
Kuminga can't shoot and I seriously have no idea how tall he is at this point. NBC just said he's 6'8" which I know isn't true. I've seen him listed as anywhere between 6'5" to 6'8" and there's a pretty substantial difference between those two measurements.
If Green is truly 6'5", and really projects out to a two-way guard, then there's a scenario where I can see drafting him but one of Sexton or Okoro would need to get traded and then it's kind of difficult to find a trade that works where the Cavs wouldn't take the L.
Obviously it's better to get the higher pick and be in a position to trade back, but Mobley is the only guy who if still on the board, I feel good enough about to take and figure the rest out later.
I don't bother to watch much College videos until after the lottery.
No sense even bothering to imagine how a player like Cade would look unless we win the thing, but there's a lot of ways to get a step on a defender without having to beat them out of an ISO, and we have a pair of guards who can get in to the paint at will.
If we end up at #2, though, Mobley seems like an easy pick.
