Ballo, Zakharov aren't leaving in 2021, at least not for NBA (could go pro in Europe or transfer though)

Timme I think does leave but I don't like him much for NBA, Watson more of a steady solid guy all around than a stud

Suggs is the high end guy but may be more of a mid teens type talent, nice toolset though

Ayayi could surprise, Kispert I think is an early 2nd guy at best

Suggs looks good, really polished for a FS, nice handle/vision, strong

Watson looks slow, really heavy footed and not a very coordinated runner, he does a lot of the little things well but man, not sure how much he can give u offensively

Suggs is somebody I want to keep an eye on. Wasn't sure about how translatible he would be.

Gonzaga should win it all and should have a bunch of first round prospects.

I love Suggs. Think he will end up top 5 possibly top 3 come draft time. This team is stacked (too stacked for a Mark Few rotation, too many good players are gonna rot on the bench) but man do I wish that Petrusev stayed. Imagine this team with a centre on the level of Petrusev.

Zags look good.

Kispert and Timme have slow feet on D and they don't have an eraser back there to cover it up. So their defense is vulnerable.

But on offense they've got it all. Including a top NBA prospect at lead guard.

Really impressed with Suggs passing, way better than I had imagined.

What a debut for Suggs. Love the shot too. Looks like a quick trigger one motion shooter at 6'5". This class has multiple studs and he's for sure one of em.

You should go back and watch some more of him or maybe some of the other prospects.

Suggs really impressed in his debut. Plays like Westbrook in that he constantly looks to attack and pressure the defense, is athletic, can make some really good passes but at the same time is prone to shoot more than he should, with some shooting deficiencies, and can be out of control at times. I don't like him personality-wise at all but can't deny the obvious talent.

Also, Kispert has to be the perfect role player at the next level. This guy just does so many things well and has some legit size. I also feel like he's a perfectly fine athlete. Looked quite springy against Kansas. Could be a long-time pro.

Kispert can't really hang defensively, he is so mediocre laterally

What don't you like about his personality? Too arrogant?

Pretty much. But hey, as long as he backs it up he can be as cocky as he wants to be.

I'm not a fan of guys who think they are better than they are either. I think with Suggs tho, he is just so gifted and he seems more chill off the court and just turns into a killer on the court. I mean he knows he is good but as long as he has the humbleness to keep improving off the court and gets along with his teammates I'm ok with it.

That perfectly captures my thoughts on him.

His shot looked nice, playmaking also. The only thing I didn't realy like is that he forces it a bit. But he is a top5 prospect if he continues like that.
