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?
