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.

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.
