I thin 1st round will be a stretch for us to get involved, so that's why I'll focus on 2nd.


Quetta and Ayo maybe. I'd go big since we don't have any. Neemias could go 2nd round. He had a very productive year. Doesn't shoot threes from the logo though.

Looking at late 1st and 2nd round candidates, I'd like to do a deep dive further on:

- Filip Petrusev; 6'11", 225lbs PF/C from Serbia. Played at Gonzaga before leaving to play professionally back in Serbia for Mega Bemax (who have a solid history of NBA draft players inc Nikola Jokic). Averaged 22/8 and shot 45% from 3. Got to the line 6 times a game at 72%. 21 years old.

- Neemias Queta, 7'0", 226lb C from Portugal. Played at Utah State. Haven't watched the tape but stats look like old school style big with serious defensive ability (3.3bpg, 1.1spg, 10.1rpg). Can hit FT's at a solid 70% clip. Doesn't space the floor at this stage.

- Greg Brown, 6'9", 205lbs SF/PF from Texas. 19 years old. Raw stats look similar to Patrick Williams from last year, but need to review the tape closer.

- Matthew Hurt, 6'8", 214lbs PF from Duke. 21 years old. Averaged 18 and 6 and spaces the floor (2.3 treys per on 44%).

- Luka Garza, 6'11", 265lbs C from Iowa. 22 years old. Averaged 24/9 and shot 44% from 3 (1.4 per game). He may be your classic highly productive college big and poor pro, but the production is nice.

I've predominantly looked at PF/C's here as a need, but interested in what other guards/wings are around too.

checked out some highlights. Petrusev looks like an immediate yes. Queta if Bam stops being a b and works on his offense. That would be an actual front line on defense

the smaller hybrid forwards are probably what we're gonna be looking at even if I disagree...so go Brown. Garza looks like he would have made a fine Troy Murphy clone lol

Draft lottery is tomorrow night!

Fun things to look for include either GSW or OKC ending up with multiple top five picks.

I'm ready buddy! I've already sacrificed a goat and prayed for the 1st and 4th picks in a Jimmy trade a minute prior to the lotto balls dropping.

They got Stewart and Killian there as well. Regardless, they need to follow Josh Jackson's lead.
