Take it for what you will, but one of the biggest journalists for the NBL that always has the inside scoop, and usually *hints* at things that are happening behind the scenes - said he thinks it's easier for the NBL to land Next Stars in this climate, said he'd love to see Cunningham or Kuminga here. Could be nothing, could be something.

Cade is staying put, so def nothing on that front, Kuminga likely to join G-League

if the G league keeps giving these top guys 500K that removes the NBL as an option IMO

I would assume the NBL's appeal is short term and due to NZ being basically COVID free.

Yeah that was my impression of those guys pathways as well, but I'm skeptical about pro and collegiate sports going into next season the way the virus is being handled over there. We'll see.

Peyton Watson committed to UCLA. I’m not sure where he’s ranked right now but he should be top 10 in the 2021 high school class this time next year and maybe even rise enough to get a big offer from the G league.

He #17 overall but after Baldwin, Chet, Paola, Foster, etc... dip out he’s deft gonna be in T10. Hes KD scrawny but has massive growth. With that said he so won t end up at UCLA

Someone want to sell Paola for me? I want to get hyped for him because he is heading to Duke and I know some here are pretty high on him, Im just not seeing it. Not good size for the 5, isnt an explosive athlete, doesnt have great perimeter skills. He seems like he missed his ideal time to play by a decade. He seems like a perfect 4 back in the day when Carlos Boozer was making all star teams.

Dont get me wrong, I think he's going to be fun to watch in college, I just dont see the NBA star potential with him.

21 class doesn't seem strong right now, especially after Kuminga re-class, maybe Bates can change that if he reclasses

i still like Griffin the best in this class right now, not sure how he's ranked 8th or 9th. i'm very meh on Chet and Baldwin.

i'm seeing complete opposite from that. Good form on his jumper, good passer, willing to bang, athletic enough. I see more than enough skill there. But time will tell
