Jalen Wilson reminds me of a cross between Saddiq Bey and Brandon Ingram.

Ayo Dosunmu looks like a fully fledged PG this year. Appears to have crossed the boundary from secondary distributor to primary one. The jumper seems improved, as well. It's a shame he doesn't defend at all because there's a lot to like offensively.

FSU has been, far and away, my favorite team to watch in recent years. Their whole squad last year was filled with defensive players that can score off the dribble.

Raiquan Gray has a fascinating skillset but comes with obvious conditioning red flags.

Just out of curiosity, what’s your take on Pat Williams?

Very intrigued with Patrick Williams.

Defensively, looks very switchable. Might even be able to defend point of attack on occassion.
Offensively, the jumper will be strong in time. Should be a good spacer.

Upside: I'm fascinated by his upside as a creator. It's not a big sample size, but he looks like he can score off the dribble in the mid-range. I think he's more than a stretch four.

Weakness: Looks like trash on the glass. If he flops as a creater and teams use him as a pure stretch four, he's going to get abused for second chance points.

Agree %100. I see some Kawhi there.

Umass' Tre Mitchell looks like a legitimate pro PF.

Can hit free throws, can rebound, is not a negative defender in space. He even has legitimate shooting range. Pretty good bigman prospect from an unlikely source.

Talked about him last year. Unfortunate name, but pretty damn good lead guard.

Man, Keyontae Johnson collapsed during the FSU-UF game. I really hope he's okay. That's so brutal.

I'm going to wait until we're at least 15 games in, but Ethan Chargois is putting up silly stats in his early senior campaign at SMU.

WOW

Mitchell just poured in 37 points in a dominant win over Lasalle.

I'm having trouble getting a read on what Evan Mobley is. Very unique player.

I see face-up drives. I see screen and roll. I see screen and pop. I see post iso. I see an occasional catch and shoot three. What offensive role is he going to play in the NBA?

Kansas vs. Texas Tech should be awesome to watch tonight.

Bill Self truly is an amazing coach to keep eeking out wins with this subpar roster.

Suggs looked really good today against the #3 team in the nation.

27 points, 7 rebounds, 4 assists, 3 steals and 1 block.

Wasn't forcing the issue either. Was very measured with the ball and played within the system all game. Such a poised player.

I think he should go #1 over Cade.

Random observation: If I'm not watching UK or a particular prospect play, college basketball is dreadfully boring as a passive watcher. The NBA is a billion times more enjoyable to watch when you have no skin in the game.

Unless BJ Boston has some kind of epiphany soon, he needs to return for another season. He likely wouldn't, but man, this dude needs work.

Return to Philadelphia 76ers
