Josh Green

Thoughts? He's an Australian who moved to the US somewhat recently I believe. He's listed as a top 10 player in the country.

He’s a complete player and more of a Miller player than guys like Trier, Alkins and Kobi. He kinda reminds me of Nick Johnson but with NBA upside. Probably a 2-year player.

In the other thread I used Gary Harris as a comparison, though Josh is a tiny bit bigger and probably a bit better athlete, with Harris being the more developed shooter.

I don't see why he can't/shouldn't be a one and done, as you said in the OP, he's a possible top 10 pick.

I'd say a one and done prospect.

I want to say a Dion Waiters that plays within his skillset.

Needs to work on his shooting, form is good but seems like he needs reps. FT and 3p% aren't ideal.

I get the feel that he's a springier Jamal Murray. Has some combo guard ability but his instincts are to score. I like him as a prospect and think/hopes he does very well at Zona amd beyond.

I am angry he choose Arizona over my Heels. The cats got a really good one. Hyper athletic, very high basketball IQ, versatile can play the 2-4 easily. Not sure he is the creative type that many on here have compared him to. His jumpshot is effective, yet a little bit funky, chicken wings it out. I think he reminds me most of Justise Winslow, who anyone would take a year of college from. Plays hard and smart. Really jealous of Arizona.

For some reason, he reminds me a little of Zach Lavine. He’s got that quick twitch athleticism and he can get up. I wouldn’t say he is the leaper LaVine is, but dude has hops.

I don't follow HS hoops too intently, I don't know how far his skills are actually developing, but from what I've seen in highlights lately, his passing chops have really stood out, and the shot's looking confident.

I don't know the nuances of his game in the half-court, but you combine those developments with his good size and length, his great athleticism, and from what I've seen a good feel for the game, and you have an extremely well rounded prospect.

It was recently announced he was available and named to Australia's u19 squad, which is pretty exciting because we don't usually our top U.S. based guys play for our junior squads, so pretty excited to see him suite up for that. Again, I don't usually watch junior ball, but this team has Green, Wigness, and some other intriguing long term prospects. Apparently Makur Maker made himself available but wasn't on the squad list, which surprises me, I'm trying to find out whether he's going to be a part of it or not. But I'll be tuning in to that team intently.
