We're rock solid at the 5. Drummond is a stud. Reed's path to playing time is at the 4. We just need to move Simmons and/or Harris.

From an SF to a huge guard in his freshman College year, super young, all the tools.

Does have a similar game to Antman albeit less poppy but that doesn’t matter not with that size.

I mean a 6”4+” 220+ pound guard that can move like that once his body matures is money. He’s a big kid now and he’ll get even stronger naturally. The frame is very impressive and of course was a monster in transition, his ppp on that was out of control.

I believe if Reed is hitting his 3's he will be the backup 4/5.

All the scouting in the world and NOTHING ABOUT HIS STATS AT LSU seemed to matter….

I saw his averages and assumed he’s a guy that could step in as a backup to a player like Bradley Beal. Day one. All those points as a freshman?

Similarly, Sharife Cooper with prodigious assists…

Who needs scouts?

(Tongue-in-cheek comments)


Foxes and hedgehogs.

Scouts are hedgehogs, so they can be victim of powerful biases. For instance, their FO maybe prioritizing some metrics that only they have access to. They also have their career on the line so they may lean towards BPA, Those teams who drafts picks high on the draft are victims of this.

Average joe on realgm who loves the game, knows the trend, knows some stats also can change his mind more often than a scout. Discussions on forums where you have hundred guys who talks about the draft and if you have an open mind could also “bovine guess” your way closer to accuracy.

You live long enough and done stuffs in life, you’ll soon realize that everyone dont really know what they’re doing. Or they think they know but they dont really know.

A universe of unknown, only a dust of known. We’re really all just guessing.


Preach!

:nod:

That’s a beautiful response and I really appreciate it. :-)
After the Wizards GM really went and did it by having an imaginative, strong, draft day. I totally feel this as well;

It’s this kind of back and forth that is why the Sixers board has the best draft thread on all of RealGM.

One, two, three, Nik rocks! :lol:
It is highly unlikely that the Sixers will agree with your Ben Simmons evaluation for the purposes of a trade.
