Tyrese Haliburton  

Post#1 » by City of Trees » Thu Nov 19, 2020 7:46 am

With the twelfth pick in the 2020 NBA draft, the Sacramento Kings select Tyrese Haliburton, guard, Iowa State.

You guys know I've been praying the Kings would draft him and here we are. I couldn't he happier with the pick at 12.

Didn't pay a whole lot attention to college ball this year so coming into this draft I didn't know a whole lot at all... but man, I really like this kid. Seems like MCW on steroids. Good luck!

I love the pick. Our biggest problem has been that when Fox goes to the bench, the entire team falls apart. This is going to really help that. The 2 of them in the backcourt sharing minutes and having 1 in at all times, I couldn't be happier honestly.

I had him and Deni as guys I was interested in trading up for. To have one fall was amazing.

According to Lowe, Haliburton fell because he told teams don't draft me! I want to play for Sacramento!

That's actually good news.

I remember watching Haliburton's reaction right after he got drafted by the Kings, I didn't think it looked good lol

I'm glad to hear that he wanted Sacramento from the start.

I hope this kid turns out good for us.

Actually I am pretty sure he was quietly praying.

And it seems like it was a prayer of thanks.

Let’s hope so.

:D

Tyrese Haliburton is a good one. A point guard but can play 2 guard also. One smart cookie. Has a great IQ.
Read a lot about him before draft. Doesn't just play with talent but with his brain also. May not start to begin
the season but will get a lot of minutes. I believe we will enjoy seeing him play.

:D :D

Show's his long term planning. Give up a some $ in the first contract to get more in that second contract. I like young men, who are willing to bet on themselves.

As for Haliburton, he was hands down the best player that I saw in college hoops last year. Look forward to seeing Buddy pout when they start Haliburton over him. Future Doug Christie.

See my comments throughout the year from kingsfans.com:


"Dec 3, 2019

Tyrese Halliburton of Iowa State and Myles Powell of Seton Hall were the two most impressive prospects that I watched over Thanksgiving break. Tyrese plays a bit like a UCLA version of Lonzo Ball while Myles Powell plays like Donovan Mitchell. Haliburton is currently slated as a top 10 pick, but I wouldn't be surprised at all to see him in the top 5. Powell would be a second round steal."

I've been extremely high on Halliburton since the Thxgiving tournaments. Best prospect from those sets of games that I saw. If he ends up playing the 2 at the NBA level, he has the skills and physical attributes to play like Doug on offense and eventually defense (with his length). Would very much like him on the Kings."

...This year, the only player I’ll die arguing for is Halliburton. Watched all of the Holiday tourneys (bcz I was sports betting. :)) and he was hands down the best player. Also that Seton Hall scoring guard flashed as well. Forgot his name.

I've got a few nuggets on Halliburton for you guys that I accumulated during the year long pre-draft period.

Enjoy!!

Scouting NBA draft lottery prospects: Strengths, comps, intel

Image

7. Tyrese Haliburton | PG | Iowa State | Age: 20.0

Haliburton took advantage of an injury to Iowa's starting point guard to gain valuable experience as a freshman and eventually forced his way onto NBA radar with a strong showing at the FIBA U19 World Cup this past summer where he led USA to a gold medal. His season was cut short in February with a fractured wrist, but not before he emerged as one of the most versatile and efficient college PGs, despite being forced to shoulder a significantly heavier load. -- Schmitz

Projected role: Secondary ball-handling 3-and-D guard

  • Has good size for a point guard at 6-5 with a 6-7½ wingspan that should allow him to defend either guard position. Fluid athlete who changes speeds with long strides, polished footwork and smooth body control. Still developing physically.

  • Has one of the highest basketball IQs of any player in the draft. Creative passer who empowers teammates with outlet passes and makes the game easy with the tremendous vision in pick-and-roll. Size, length and feel make him a factor on the glass, getting in passing lanes and even blocking shots on occasion.

  • Career 43% 3-point shooter and 78% free throw shooter at the college level. Reliable with his feet set despite his unconventional mechanics. Has outstanding touch on floaters.

  • Has played off the ball quite a bit in his college career due to his struggles creating offense from in the half court. Can't always beat better defenders off the bounce cleanly. Low release on his pull-up jumper makes it difficult for him to get his shot off at times. Likely will be at his best operating alongside a high-volume shot creator.

  • Light frame limits him on both ends. Gets knocked off his path easily and forced to settle for difficult shots from outside the paint. Has a propensity for avoiding contact. Attempted only 71 free throws in 57 games in college.
