I really hope not. Not sure exactly what it is, but I just don't like that.


I'm okay with Mitchell as a defensive specialist who could develop into a better McConnell.

I don't like Kispert and said so on Chad's board. It feels like a high floor, low ceiling pick. if playing this year is the object, I'd rather trade down for a player and picks.

really though i don't buy the theory. we're fine at 3 this year with Justin and Jeremy. if the pick is a wing he can sit a year and take Jeremy's minutes next year. and then there all those high ceiling bigs.

Every time I see a player described as a defensive specialist, my first thought is it means he can't shoot worth a darn. HA! That may not be the case entirely with Mitchell, but still...

Krispert strikes me as a guy who would wilt on the big stage versus better opponents.

In either players case, I really don't want to come out of this with more one-dimensional players. Been there. Done that. Didn't like it at all.

think McConnell who can shoot but needs to be open as he lacks the size to not get blocked. i think Mitchell does have more range than TJ though. he's supposed to be the best on ball defender in the draft with a specialty of full court pressure. I think his skills could be more useful as a 5th guard than Aaron's. and if we lose TJ, Mitchell would for sure have a role.

See, I look at TJM as also being a play-maker who can distribute the ball well and drive to the rim as well.

He reminds me of the mosquito that just won't leave you alone.

I agree on Aaron. To me he is a wasted roster space.

he's just small. Ford ranks him 7 and thinks GS should take him there but doesn't see a fit at 8-12 so if GS passes he thinks Mitchell could fall to us. if we pass, the thinks GS takes him at 14. I think more of him than you do, but I hope we take a bigger player.

I was expecting more green room invites. So that "so far" means there'll be more, I guess.

I am expecting Sengun, Jackson, Duarte, Hyland, Garuba, Ziaire Williams, and a few others to at least get an invite.

I think he was the only guy to work out multiple times for the Pacers.
