I like Tyrese Haliburton, think hes definitely a high ceiling guy with great passing and good defence which is great value in this years draft.

My only question is should we be concerned that Iowa State is only 10-13 ? Or is his supporting cast really that bad?

Only guy who I can think of the top of my head who was drafted in the lottery after a losing season is Markelle Fultz

Anybody know much about Deandre Williams from Evansville?

His statistical profile really stands out

Graduated HS in 2016 and can't find his age anywhere. Post grad year plus academic issues is what has kept him out this long.

Really skinny and hard to believe in the jumper with his mechanics, but didn't look out of place at all vs Kentucky. Definitely a talent worth keeping an eye on all things considered though.

Still not in love with anyone at the top

Killian Hayes is making a good case though imo

At 1 I’d consider Hayes , Ball or Antman leaning towards Hayes at the moment.

ah I see I have only seen his stats at this point

He’s definitely less interesting now that he’s probably 22 instead of 19

Still I agree that the production warrants keeping an eye on

When's the last time an international prospect with underwhelming stats became a good player?

They are that bad. They lost to Florida A&M in the only game he's missed. He'd be around 10 assists per game if there were competent three-point shooters on the team, but instead there's only one rotation player (a guy who plays 12 minutes per game) shooting above 34% from three despite having the best passer in college basketball setting them up.

I thought someone would say Giannis but Giannis barely has any stats from before he was drafted.

would that not fit the criteria of "underwhelming stats"?

There's a difference between "underwhelming stats" and "barely any stats". How can a player's stats accurately be described as underwhelming if barely any are available?

ok, what do you consider to be underwhelming? who would be your example?

I always answer questions directly, it's you guys who tend to go off topic and into an entirely different discussion.
