Stanford's system masks a lot of what I think Terry can do as a passer.

He's also unafraid of contact and is a surprisingly solid finisher (spectacular considering his size/frame/weight). He is feisty on defense as well.

Similar to Joe, I think once Terry fills out he will be a really dang solid 2-way rotation guy with some considerable upside.

Shocked Terry is projected so late in KOC's mock.

It seems to me that he was basically a decoy a lot of the time. They could spread him way out on the wing and the defender has to stay somewhat near him. Seperately, kind of underreported how hard defenses worked to deny him at times... I sometimes wish he'd work harder to get open, though.

1) Vernor Carey

4) Desmond Bane


Sam Merrill (he is expected to be undrafted) so he is my MUST Undrafted pickup.

I love Sam Merrill who is probably going to go Undrafted ...
same as Luke Kornet went , and was posting to pick him up.
His 3P shooting off the dribble, his pick n roll decision making and effectiveness,
his passing and in general his BBIQ is underrated. its like a Kennard is about to go undrafted.
I watched carefully, his shooting form, his stats, he is 89+ % FT shooter, you know I love FT%
its a sign of intelligence and mental toughness. And his 41% 3Pt with 7 attempts per game.


Merrill is exactly the type to shoot for in 2nd or undrafted. I'd just buy a pick if needed. This is Joe Harris or Robinson type waiting to happen

You guys know anything about Nico Carvacho? Mountain West all time leading rebounder. 6-11, seems to move pretty well. Already signed in Bulgaria right out of college but looks like he has the makings for a 2-way deal at least. I get that he’s older but zero draft buzz? Stumbled across him while looking up old Michael Ruffin stats, which is a very sad sentence.

Love these fundamentals. This is a cat who has seen some Big Man Camps in his day.

Interesting two-way candidate, but I kept getting distracted by the completely unnecessary amount of slow-mo in the highlight vid. Shades of the GOAT, Damir Markota.

Taller Ethan Happ...even shoots FT at a 50% clip.

I ask this ever year, have gotten some good answers recently (Jevon Carter, Monte Morris). Who are the “dogs” in this draft? Who’s going to be physical and get into guys defensively? PJ Tucker, Royce Oneal, Torrey Craig mindsets. Who are the dogs of 2020?

I'm ready for my first hot draft take: Robert Woodard has as much upside as anybody in this draft.

Devon Dotson was the first name to come to mind for me.

Jah is totally lost defensively and cannot create for himself on offense. HARDEST PASS.

Tyrese Maxey, Nate Hinton, Tyler Bey, Xavier Tillman



Considering our draft range, Hinton is THA DAWG (COUGAR). He is a fiery competitor, rebounds and defends like a MF, can knock down shots solidly enough. Does not back down. Marcus Smart meets Keldon Johnson kinda vibes.

Seems like his strength for sure but watching some highlights doesn't seem like he's Jason Kapono or something. If that's where he's projected even better. He's got tools and a body to work with in the NBA to me.

Funnily enough with you mentioning Kapono, @wizzyDFS on Twitter has a fun college player comparison tool. (everybody play with it, it is super fun and he gets his clicks)

Kapono meets Hood feels pretty fair for Nwora.
