Loved Twill. Honestly whenever he got minutes he produced, unlike Justin Anderson.

Okoro would have been better choosing NFL as a career path.


I don't know about that, the average NBA salary is much higher and there's less chance of suffering traumatic brain injuries.

Nah, I'm just saying the guy can't shoot. A smidge important in todays NBA.

No, those actually seem like perfect comps for where they were coming out...particularly MKG. RHJ was thought of as purely defense, and I don't think people had as high of hopes for offense, so maybe not as much him, but I could see him ending up like that too.

I see this similar to the Issac and Tatum situation. I definitely like Vassell better.

Vassell has some Paul George to his game. Okoro, some Jimmy Butler. I think they'll both be great role players from Day 1 with a chance to evaluate to a team's #2 if they hit their ceiling but most likely #3. I prefer Vassell and would take him top 10 with Okoro late lottery to #20.

umm the dude didnt forget his shooting form based on a 20 second loop... he just got caught fn around and it just is showing he can get buckets even with that

The shooting form in that leaked video is a little disconcerting, but I would still have Vassell over Okoro.

Okoro doesn't have a jumpshot or any apparent NBA level skill other than defense and athleticism.

Vassell plays like he has a 7'0 wingspan, his college 41% three point shot looked transferable, and he has a couple of decent two dribble moves he could lean on if his defender aggressively closes out on him.

Vassell to me has the highest floor and highest ceiling as a 3D wing.

How do you feel about vs. Nesmith and Green?

Devin Vassell all day every day. Way better than Stanley Johnson, er, Isaac Okoro. And only getting better. His defense is there already. I saw one mock that had him at 18. crazy. Top ten in this draft.

if Vassells jumper stays changed I’m out on him, it looks really bad. Okoro has all-defensive type ability, I think Vassell is a good defender though. Okoroa shooting numbers scare me, Vassells doesn’t. Preshot change I think it’s Vassell, but I think it’s pretty even now.
