If Alonzo Trier didn't get drafted, for the trouble he was a part of at Arizona, that American Pie stunt McDaniels pulled in HS, will probably keep him from being drafted by anyone.

I think Mfiondu Kabengele will be gone before the #24. So I'll realistically hope for:

#24 - Bruno Fernando
#33 - Zach Norvell
#34 - Jarrell Brantley


Replace Jarrell Brantley wth Loius King and I'm on board (if Kabengele is gone at #24)

I'd take Louis King too, but I don't think he will be available. And with the 76ers wanting play now players, I doubt he'd be the pick at #24. I would take him... but I don't think they will take him.



Yeah, definitely he will not be the pick at #24.
I hope he will be still "on board" at #33.
I get the sixers want now players, but I have faith that the FO didn't forget completely the vaule of tomorrow players.

But you're right, and King will be probably gone somwhere between #24 and #33

Im not the biggest Thybulle fan mainly because of his offense.

That being said, the dude can absolutely defend at a high level and is extremely active. Certainly not my personal preference, but if Zhaire can build on his improvements as a shooter this off-season, the 2 could make for a really athletic, formidable defensive pairing off the bench.

This draft is really a wildcard....there are so many names that could be realistic options at 24.

Kabengele would be my hope at 24, but seems unlikely.

Eric Paschall is one of those guys that if you catch him when he's hot, he looks like an NBA player. But there is something wrong with a 23 year old college PF that only gets 6 Rebs and 0.5 blks, when he's playing 35 minutes per game.

Actually if you ask me which Center I want for my perfect championship caliber team, I will chose Asik hands down
