foot stress fractures already scare me. Also, how does he fit with Bamba and Isaac?


Yeah, I'm kind of hoping he's off the board when we pick not that I would hate if we did pick him but I just think there's a lot of risk involved with him.


Bol Bol has to be the most risk reward pick that's been known pre draft in a long long time. Giannis wasn't really know due to his Greek League grainy rice footage.

The guy has some great offensive moves and he's got the sky hook.

Bol Bol will be taken by pick 10, imo.

Somebody will reach for him. Kinda like how the Bucks reached for Thon Maker a few years ago.

he doesn't.. Bol Bol would be the worst pick IMO... I could see him slide 18-20's

If he doesnt fit, then too bad, cause bamba definitely hasnt shown hes good enough to justify passing on players for.

If we had embiid you can say, dont draft a center, we alreayd have a great one, if your center is a 2nd year player who averaged 6/5 and routinely missed games with injury and was able to earn the trust of the coach enough to get steady PT, then you dont pass on a player who has top flight potential.

cause if you look at it like "well we cant draft ______ because we already have a top 6 pick at that position, that would mean we can ONLY draft a SG"
Draft best available and worry about positional battles later

Probably, but if hes there at 16, he would likely be the highest upside player available

Doesn't Bol weigh 208 lbs? Do we just not want to ever have a rookie that can play in the first season? If he had some positional versatility it'd be one thing, but he's obviously not athletic enough to play the 4 like a Porzingis. Centers are everywhere for dirt cheap...

If Thybulle ends up being a stud, you have bragging rights for eternity.

I bet Thybulle goes to SA with their shooting coach and becomes a stud.

I been hearing quite a bit of Darius Garland today and yesterday. He sounds like a lock in the top 4 with Zion, JA and Barrett. The real NBA draft doesn't start until the 5th pick.

Think top 7 goes per below. 6&7 could easily flip but I think Suns go White.

Zion
Ja
RJ
Culver - NOLA trades 4 for 8&10 from Atlanta
Hunter
White
Garland

I'm 100% in on NAW. Wouldn't be upset with Keldon or Herro. No to Porter JR. and not really high on Langford.

A second round guy who I'd love to take a flyer on, that no one is talking about, is Quinndary Weatherspoon. A 6' 5" PG who shot 40% from three last year.

Edit: also on the Coby White train. I wouldn't be upset to give him a go.

Herro is 6'6 with a 6'3 wingspan. Anybody hoping for him hasn't been paying attention to the Magic's front office.

Are you guys watching the ESPN mock draft special right now on ESPN? They are doing at least the first 30 picks so they will do the Magic at #16!!!! I like to see how people react on here to who Adrian WoJ, Mike Schultz or Bobby Marks picks for the Magic.

Yea ESPN just did Rui Hachimura at #11 to the Timberwolves, We are 5 picks away from our pick!

Nassir Little went #12 to the Hornets, I wish he could fall to #16 in the real NBA draft. Its probably highly unlikely Nassir is available at 16.

Goga Bitadze #15 to the Nets? I never heard of that guy.

Mike Schmitz took Tyler Herro for us at 16. Some people on here are not happy with us passing over NAW.
