I love the Wiseman pick and I was not high on Mannion but after re-watching his draft videos I can see his positives. His left hand is impressive with his handles and finishing at the rim. I just wish he was bigger.

I’ll say it one last time - I would have drafted Cassius Stanley. He broke Zions vertical record at Duke. Incredible athlete, 6’6 and could potentially be a good bench scorer.

I agree, ok Mannion seems good but with #51 Warriors could have drafted Cassius Stanley.

Stanley may have refused to agree to a 2-way.

Jessup’s soph year was the best team he played on. Played fewer minutes and had lower usage than his junior or senior years. .457 on 3s, and .645 TS% that year .
This movie is like the Rocky Horror Picture Show where everyone knows all the lines.

Colonel Jessup's rights will be useful in an TPE trade.

Steph is pretty much undersized in today's NBA. After a number of long years on the defensive end, he's finally passable when playing next to klay, iggy, dray. niko got destroyed by cole anthony on so many occassions in last year's high school all star games, I really soured on niko. he did nothing in his year in arizona to change my mind. struggled with his shot and doesn't seem to have the size and athleticism to compensate.

You know I was preaching for P Williams, but at 4 to Chicago that shocked the eff out of me. How do you feel about your boy Okoro getting stuck with pukey Cleveland?

Yeah I don’t see the fit on the one, but he’s damn good.

Well Cleveland was the worst defensive team in the league so it actually makes perfect sense they picked arguably the best defender in the draft. Not that it will help them enough, or him. Shame he has to spend his youth in the place we sometimes forget exists in the NBA, and when we remember it exists, it only depresses us.

Just to write it down somewhere: I'm upset we didn't sign Mason Jones as an undrafted free agent (and didn't draft him with #51). SEC PoY who can shoot, score and has good size for a SG – sounds like someone who fits the profile we need.

This is the other ‘I can't believe nobody took him (earlier), including the Warriors’ prospect next to Paul Reed. Smh.

Yeah can’t believe the fall of Paul Reed. I heard someone say he had issues with his coach. I never heard that myself, and this person only mentioned it right before the draft.

I can’t believe he slipped all the way out of the draft.
