SGA’s jumper is super ugly. i would not consider him at all at #9 imo. take Sexton or mikal or miles and call it a day. don’t make this complicated.

I'd like SGA as a dart throw around 13-15 but yeah he's too risky for 9. He can really bust if things don't go well.

we really need him to enter...would be another possible pick that could help Mikal drop.

If some fans want Shai Gilgeous-Alexander then you trade back to the clippers for there 2 first round pick but i agree with the mikal and miles . I think sexton gets drafted to the magic if the magic don't move up in this draft because they need a point guard.

Co-signed. Him having a presser though worries me. How often do players hold press conferences at their school to say they are leaving? Don't they just declare?

Good point i say it 60 percent chance he leaves i wouldn't be surprise if he stays but he has to think this going be highest is draft status going be he isn't going to be number 1 pick next year.

Kings are such a wild card that's one team nobody knows who they will also dallas is wild card team they go off the radar pick.

He could probably be a top 5 pick next year if he plays well in 2018-2019. Apparently he also loves being a college student and his parents aren't exactly pushing him to go pro. I guess we will find out soon.

I think he stays. Why hold a press conference to leave? Also he considered Harvard, so he wants to learn

I think this is what happens too. He's a different type of guy and genuinely seems to want to stay in college. Would be a blow for sure.

I'll take out the word probably. He could improve his stock though if he's slated to go 7 or 8. That's worth a bit of money, but I don't think he would be staying for the draft stock increase. It would be because he loves Duke.
