I think Morgan is also underrated. he's definitely worth a summer league spot if he falls out of the 2nd round and could be worth the 50 depending upon who else is left.

I agree. It’s hard to say exactly what one thing he would bring is, but I saw someone on Twitter describe him as a layer that just gets stuff done. Real glue guy that can do a little of anything.

The first rounded are starting to swing through. Also, Tyler Herro mentioned he has a workout scheduled with Indy for next week.

plus, Washington, Clarke, Williams, and 2 Johnsons (NC and KY). I do like Thybulle as you do, but I'd prefer someone closer to 6'9" than 6'6".

I figured Washington and Clarke would be long gone. Clarke is my favorite if we moved into something like the #11 pick. Not a big fan of Williams or either Johnson.

don't expect Clarke to be on the board but Washington could well be. I do like Williams and the NC Johnson.

Part of me really likes Nickeil Alexander-Walker because he can play either guard spots, and I always seemed to walk away impressed when I saw him in games. Whether or not that will translate is to be seen. It's really hard to peg guys this year because I can see 11-30 picks going an endless number of ways. Nassir Little is another I didn't think would be possible, but he could slide as well. He's been impressing in workouts from everything I've read.

Yep I just saw that when I went to look at him.

Helps he has a resume of being about to score at the college level. Think some team may get a very nice player if they select him, essp if he does drop to mid-2nd like the original posts suggests.


Edwards can shoot the lights out, but at just 6 foot he's a bit small. I'd take him at 50 if he's there and no one I like better is there.


I'd like to buy a 2nd maybe from ATL they have 3 #1's and 3 2nds. I'd like to get Kris Wilks, he could end up being a steal at 42 the 3rd ATL 2nd.

I am a bit surprised about Samanic's individual workout. He'd sure light it up if we will try to see just his full offensive arsenal. One of his major downside is his average athleticism and how he'd match up with the stronger forwards of the league. Sure, he bulked up a little but I just wish we could've seen him compete with legit 3's. 4's, and 5's. He can play three and he'd be a tall SF but he probably will be slower. Purely an upside pick. And maybe, just maybe, something that'd make Bojan re-sign.

I still think Yoosman is the better prospect.

suspect there was some sort of logistical problem getting him to Indy as this workout was in New York. in any event, I'm sure there are more workouts coming that just haven't been announced.

Only potential first rounder on this one is Fernando. All others are pegged in the 2nd by the majority.

Gafford is probably a first rounder too but he and Fernando are both centers and wouldn't make my wish list.

I like Gafford, but everyone seems to think he's an early second rounder now. Obviously he could go higher, just wouldn't consider him at #18.

In the Pacers webiste the header was "Samanic worthy of private audition" so I was kind of thinking that it was really intended to be a solo workout for him. But yeah, could be a scheduling problem.

Sandy Cohen. I don't know much about the guy.

Bruno Fernando. To me, he is worthy of being a lottery pick but I am hoping he slips to 18. Arguably the best center in the draft in terms of talent (Bitadze to me is first in terms of potential. Crazy development in months). Smart and has an advanced footwork and post skills. Can survive in the league with his current physique and skill set but could turn out to be special if he develops some more, particularly more range in his shooting. Maybe it's just me but I think he can play PF/C in the NBA considering his quickness and having just an average wingspan.

Daniel Gafford. Traditional big who (from what I have seen since last year) only has a limited game. He's been good at catching lobs but nothing more. I personally believe that the lack of centers in this year's draft helped Gafford's draft stock to stay within the first round. Teams picking up late in the first round may need a big that can be developed.

Paul Jorgensen. I don't know much about the guy either. Can't remember seeing him play in Butler.

Terance Mann. I am torn on Mann. On some games, he looks like a potential first rounder. On some, he looks undraftable. HIghly explosive player with a promising potential. I wouldn't be surprised if he follows the same scenario as Allonzo Trier. Quite similar games too.

Jaylen Nowell. Is this a second workout for him? He's in our first or second workout group.

Looks like Herro is the only guy in Workout 8 that would be picked at 18, why do I have a feeling the team is trading down/out.
