Yep, Marcus or Markieff has been my comp for him basically.

Looking at ESPN's board:

Merrill - Best shooter in the draft for my money, there's a spot in the league for him even if he's old. That's better than 62.

Reed - Looks like a pretty prototypical modern 4 imo, like him a lot higher than 51.

Terry - I don't like him relative to some on this board, but higher than 42 for sure.

Tillman - Way higher than 40, sure thing rotation guy imo.

Winston - 30 isn't toooo bad, but I'd still like him more around 15-20, great great feel for the game.

With you on all these but I am very hesitant to endorse Winston. His shot is really scary, that release is pretty low for a guy so short. Not sure he can get it off at the next level. And his athleticism is pretty poor.

Merrill seems like a telegraphed steal. A guy who will be limited, but will have enough offensive skill to carve out a bench role. He has flashes where he looks like a poor mans SG version of Luka, but I think his real role in the league will be a shooter who has a nice pass from time to time. I really like his form, pretty high release and quick enough to get it off against better athletes IMO. I think he is around 28-32 on my board with an outside chance a team takes a Grayson flyer on him in the early 20's.

Similarly with Tillman, another guy who is getting underrated because he is older. I think he is at least a bit like Kyle O'Quinn and to me thats his floor. Smart, competitive, deceptively athletic. He is a great fit as a high post passer too. I dont like him as a starter, but he could be a great backup C.

How can you be a prototypical modern 4 when you have low feel on offense and a bad shooting form?

CJ is much better at getting separation off the dribble though.

Sounds exactly like the prototypical 4 to me.

Right nobody is likely modeling their game to have a lack feel on offense or meh shooting chops esp if they are planning on becoming a typical modern starter level 4 which posesses both those skills or is at least adept at one or the other...esp if they want to be more than a end of rotation player but I think in some cases like Reed the defense alone is so good on paper that if it transfers he earns minutes on a roster with a lot of offensive action from the other starters.
