Don't know where he's projected to go, but I'm just going to loop back around and say I want Matt Mitchell in this upcoming draft.

We almost won a G-league title with those upperclassmen, late-bloomer, undrafted types.

Hell no, we need to be adding to Maxey.

Build around Maxey? A 6'2 SG? He's not even the best rookie on the team.

I'd go so far as to say, If they don't move him at the deadline, they didn't do all they should have, to try to win this year.

No, not build around him. Add additional creators to the team to compound what you already did by drafting him.

I'm finally seeing Isaiah Todd included in the 2nd round of mock drafts. It is baffling to me that the mocks have Daeshean Nix as a late 1st, early 2nd round pick, ahead of Isaiah Todd.

Wouldn't trust mocks on that one. Todd with his physical profile, shooting talent and high school rapport was/is never not going to be a lottery pick.

Nix is built like an NFL linebacker and can dribble and pass. He's getting the benefit of doubt in spite of his bad showing in the G-League.

I have to go through all of the players, to identify what the lottery should be, but there is no way there are 30 prospects better than Isaiah Todd.

Teams with loaded young creation cores like Cleveland and Chicago should be in the market for a stretch big like Todd.

Todd has to eat food, learn how to rebound and learn how to play defense, though. He's pretty deficient outside of hitting threes.

What's up with Cameron Thomas outta LSU.. Scoring machine as a freshman, and gets to the line at an elite rate.

I'd put him and Mobley in their own tier based on what I've seen

That’s very funny to me. Clearly a two way player with an excellent shooting profile with some dribbling chops. I would be shocked if he didn’t go at least in the second.

He's a Senior, and just an average athlete. There's always a big possibility that a guy like that goes undrafted. I'm also not sure he'll be a good defender at the next level.

Shooting specialist with a weird ability to draw fouls (think of a stronger version of Immanuel Quickley).

The problem with these guys is that they have no attack mode. Just 14% of his field goals occur at the rim.

He is just that, a shooter that does nothing else, prob a fine 2nd rounder but he is going to go way too high, he is Eddie House kinda

I disagree with the assessment of him, but agree that seniors get overlooked and frequently go undrafted.

Senior I'm most interested in is Kellan Grady because I would have drafted him after his freshman year.

I don't dislike him or anything. It's just that I'm skeptical of older players, especially at his size, dominating younger players. He's heavier than most NBA players at that height. There's no way most college underclassmen could handle a big guy like that. He moves well for his size, but doesn't seem overly quick for an NBA wing

Yea, I mean, I appreciate a player who can make space with physicality. I felt a similar way with Malik Fitts last year but feel that Mitchell actually plays great defense, doesn't get lost like Fitts, and has distributing ability where Fitts has pretty bad vision.
