Frank Jackson and Malik Monk did not go to ideal situations IMO.

Who originally drafted Frank? I really thought Utah would take him.

Curious as to why you think Monk is a bad fit.

New Orleans seems like a good place for Frank. They just traded Tim Frazier and their point guard situation is up in the air with Jrue Holiday's free agency. I think he could be their backup point guard on day 1.

I think they're in 2 good spots, personally. Rotational room and stylistic fit.

I like him for the Pelicans in terms of scoring from the wing, but he's not your answer a point guard if Holiday leaves.


I wouldn't expect anyone to be our answer to anything outside of the lottery. We need shooting and athleticism badly though, and he'll have plenty of opportunities with two bigs taking a ton of pressure off of the outside shooters.

I like Frank Jackson in NO. Demps usually makes pretty good draft picks when he keeps them, I wish he'd make them more often.

Not every player can go to the Warriors, but these guys landed on teams that definitely could use their skills.

Upperclass wrote:As stated in the draft thread. To me, hes a top 3 talent in 2017, and will likely be coaxed out by a lottery team. I think he enters the draft, and ends up top 8, if not higher. He's almost like a reincarnation of Jay Williams, with an even better perimeter shot.


Oops.

When you're PG size with neither PG skills nor the Inkling to pass the ball and create for others, teams don't generally see you has a great prospect.

He's athletic and could develop as an undersized SG along the lines of Lou Williams.

I think Frank Jackson has been slept on a bit. I don't think he'll be an all-star or anything (prob a fringe starter type), but he is way more talented than his draft position suggests. Awesome twitch athleticism, great body control, good scoring instincts and shot. He will be useful as a scorer for an NBA team. I can easily see him as a 3rd-4th scoring option for someone straight away.

I also really like the fit in New Orleans. He needed to go to a team that has a PG that can play SG on defense, because Jackson is a weird mix of being a 2 on offense but a 1 on defense. That's Jrue Holiday. Jrue can guard 2's while the Pelicans hide Jackson on 1's.
