I based my post on Mike Schmitz comparison to Jamal Murray and Tyler Herro.
Who is lousy Williams?
Good catch, It was of course a typo. However, I'm sure there were times basketball players with the last name Williams could have worn that moniker well! Perhaps Jonathan Williams or Aaron or Elliot Williams? But all joking aside, Given Maxeys' poor shooting percentages, And high probability of initial success being likely predicated upon his tenacious defense and his secondary value being his propensity to hit big/ timely shots. I just see him closer to Beverly than Jamal Murray orthe much bigger, better shooting but worse defensive Herro.
And for my part, I see the Lou Williams
comparison mainly due to his strength/ creativity in scoring at the rim, Similar to Lou Williams. But I suppose to each their own. Again, I wouldn't mind him for his defensive compliment he'd offer alongside of Booker. But he wouldn't be in my top 3 of guards I'd prefer. I'd much rather prefer someone with greater shooting efficiency, and better or more advanced playmaking skills. Other than his strength of scoring at around the rim and relentless on ball defense, He just seems kind of average in other aspects of his game.
If we really want a Jamal Murray value pick, We can get that in the mid to late 2nd round in Skylar Mays. I mean they're pretty close in most all categories, have nearly identical size, weight, athleticism. and similar sneaky athleticism, And the ability to hit big shots and go off offensively too. And both utilize an advanced and crafty ball handling skillset to score easily. http://www.tankathon.com/players/compare?players=skylar-mays--jamal-murrayhttps://www.google.com/amp/s/www.grizzlybearblues.com/platform/amp/2020/6/10/21286097/2020-nba-draft-profiles-skylar-mays-memphis-grizzlies-lsu-tigers
And if we want a Duncan Robinson on the cheap, We can get that too in the 2nd round on a minimal contract in Cory Kispert ( IF he remains in the draft). I'm still curious if there's anything to that Matt Babcock report though of these prospects doing predraft workouts in Phoenix.

After going six months without traveling, I made a trip to Phoenix, Arizona to see NBA prospects Naji Marshall, Ty-Shon Alexander, and Josh Hall. I shared my takeaways from those workouts in this article. Take a look!
I wonder a bit if it was entirely random? Or if Jones and the Suns front office are being cryptic and secretive. But apparently Babcock mentions that these prospects were working out against NBA pros.
- Naji Marshall.
- Tyshon Alexander.
- Josh Hall.
I'm intrigued by this because if it's the suns intent to work them out, Then perhaps it would give them a glimpse into their possible draft strategy and plans. Also remembering what you said a while back Bwgood, In that Sarver would likely consider a trade back scenario, And 2nd round picks would be cheaper and more cost effective after all. And I think that's definitely something that would excite "Saver
If he's actually looking to potentially cut cost?
