I'm pretty high on Mark Williams. Good defensive presence in the paint, started showing off a nice little midrange shot at the end of the season, high motor. I think he's gonna have a nice year, 12/10/2 blocks type of season.

For a while it sounded like the NBA or transferring to Oregon. Lloyd did a good job crootin’ him back.

Yeah, I have Adrian Griffin Jr. as my guy. Going to be another strong draft up top. Teams rebuilding in this cycle are fortunate.

not really overly sold on Griffin at this point, not sure if I have him in my prelim top5 right now but I am open to have my mind changed until further notice.

but yea, shaping up to be another strong top5.

Fun fact: Adrian Griffin Jr is the son of Raptor assistant Adrian Griffin.

Last coach's kid we had ranked this high was Austin Rivers. Not sure what happen to Rivers. Weird for a 28 year old to be on the decline despite having no major injuries, tons of muscle injuries, bumps and bruises throughout the years.

Jaden Hardy should be at the top of this draft, unless Chet (which he should be able to) puts on that much needed 30lbs.
