Regarding a few of your comps, this is just my opinion:
** Corey Kispert is more Joe Harris than Tobias Harris.
** Micah Peavy is a big guard who has a jump shot, I wouldn't compare him to Brandon Clarke
** Suggs is combo-guard like a better version of Jim Jackson, rather than a pure PG like Derrick Rose
** I agree with the Greg Brown-Jerami Grant comparison.

I'd add Jeremiah Robinson-Earl from Villanova, who seems to be picking up where Saddiq Bey left off as a skilled, if not explosive, PF. Actually, he might be a bit comparable to Tobias Harris.

Another player who might compare to Lamar Odom or pre-injury Harry Giles would be Isaiah Todd, who is playing in the G-league this year.

IMO Rose was the furthest thing from a "Pure" PG.

But I agree on Kispert being closer to Joe Harris. His jumper is smooth.
