Updated my big board so I'm going to go with two different votes.

I am going with Tyrell Terry and Xavier Tillman. Terry could have some incredible shooting gravity, and is a nice playmaker. I'm not expecting Trae Young, but maybe he can be a bit better version of Seth Curry or DJ Augustin? Tillman I think fits the mold of the kind of center the NBA is transitioning to, people who can rimrun, or faceup, players that pass well out of short rolls, or can go all the way to the basket.

Stewart - again
other(Nate Hinton): elite motor , high IQ passer, ridiculous rebounder,and improving in all other areas.
I have him as my 12th ranked prospect in the draft on my upside board and 20th overall.

Did you really just say Nwora? I'm guessing your 2nd vote is Stewart?

Shouldn't be shocked. A lot of guys have him as low as 50 in this class.

Kind of surprised Nico Mannion isn't mentioned yet. He's in the first round in most mocks and has occasionally even entered into the late lottery on some.

Due to a lot of early hype. A lot of respectable names have him closer to 40 such as Vecenie who has him at 36th.

not surprising that stats riders and highlight junkies are low on him. He has a legit game if he can get healthy and get back to doing his thing. He was not all hype imo, just slid in ranking because the back issue impacted his shot significantly hurting his stats and his desire to get it back and fight through injury only made it worse on paper because the shot never came back to it's pre injury %.
If it were not for that I would be inclined to think he regressed against tougher competition but he was good in nearly every category where his back spasms would not have made a difference.

I finally went with Stewart. I think he'll be able to put enough offense together to be a good two-way contributor. He'll be that Mason Plumlee-like backup 4/5 who can step out and guard a bit on the perimeter.

Tyrell Terry and Elijah Hughes should be appearing on teams' short lists at this stage.

Even if the injury prone factor does not help, Killian Tillie should be a late 1st pick.

maybe in your mind his offensive chops warrant it, but I cannot imagine any team willing to gaurantee a deal to him when they could easily negotiate one with better waivers in their favor in the 2nd.
I am not sold he can even plan on getting drafted if he is not able to do physicals for anyone depending on C-19

Shouldn't be shocked. A lot of guys have him as low as 50 in this class.

Why though? I don't know him much but he's a wing who can shoot, isn't unathletic and has a solid base skill-wise. Not sure about his defense + physicality but he seems like a solid 2nd round guy.

I wouldn't mind drafting him with the GS 2nd. He's not very high on my list for that spot but he seems like a high floor-guy at a position of need.

I voted other, Desmond Bane or Tyrell Terry would probably get my vote. I really struggle to see where Stewart or Carey fit in on the next level despite their obvious talent and good production early in their college careers.

Just awful timing for them big picture-wise given where the league is trending.

I think Nwora's biggest knock is injury history. A couple of years ago I had him pretty high on my board, but I think his injuries have taken down his overall athleticism a notch. He just doesn't seem as quick to the point where I think he's a defensive liability on the wing. And he doesn't do a whole lot other stuff incredibly well other than 3-pt. shooting. I think drafting him 50-60 range is fine, I'd just personally pass for other prospects I think can contribute a little more.

Though, wings are highly valued. Could definitely see him going a little earlier than 50 if a team is wing hungry.

I think I got a soft spot for him. I always hope for the next Chandler Parsons when I look at dudes like that but that might not be realistic. We'll see where he lands.

Tillman. He is going to be an excellent 1st big off the bench IMO. The only think Stewart does better than him is score traditional post buckets which are just not worth the usage in this league anymore.
