Can you tell me what you like about each prospect?
1. 6'6 Canadian forward with an 8-foot-4.5 standing. Not sure on his Wingspan
2. Looked really good last year. Probably lottery/top 20 pick before he pulled out.
3. Hasn't looked good this year, although its early. Should be a solid defender.
4. Was arguably the star or go-to on the Canadian FIBA U19 tournament - Averaged 16 pts 4 rebounds and 2 assists.
5. Had a 30pt game against Japan and 31 against Serbia
“You see a guy who has good size, good length and I think he is probably going to profile for most teams as a 3-and-D guy. But he is a 3-and-D guy who can handle the ball,” added the executive. “He can attack closeouts, he can take contact and finish at the rim. That’s all pretty intriguing.”
1. 6-foot-8, and possessing a 7-foot wingspan with some guard skills
2. Started slow, but had a great game the other night with 19 pts.
3. Jumper is smooth, although inconsistent
4. Should be a nice two-way/high ceiling prospect if groomed correctly
At 6-foot-8, and possessing a 7-foot wingspan with guard skills, Peyton Watson enters his freshman season at UCLA as a highly-anticipated prospect. Even though he still has room to develop, Watson brings great versatility on both sides of the floor. He's also comfortable with the ball in his hands and initiating the offense. On defense, he's shown real promise as a shot-blocker with his length and athleticism. All in all, he has great potential. If he's able to tap into that potential, he'll likely be a high pick in the 2022 NBA Draft.
1. 6'9 PF/C prospect with a monster 7-5 wingspan /Possibly still growing - He needs to get much bigger
2. Very bouncy/athletic and a very good shot blocker
3. Typical High ceiling prospect with bust potential/ very raw - But I like the potential with our development
Collins is a painfully thin and bouncy hybrid four-man with long arms. He is quick off the floor as an explosive leaper and is very mobile with good hands. He finishes with strength around the rim and is developing as a scorer facing the basket. Defensively, Collins is a high-level shot-blocker who is one of the best in that area of the game in the senior class. He is more than capable of rebounding outside his area. Collins is still a little raw offensively in general but has made leaps and bounds in his game over the years. With his tremendous upside, he is likely to do the same playing under John Calipari.
1. 6'10 forward who I first noticed at the U18 during the summer - jack of all trades type.
2. Nice passing
3. Nice Handle
4. I question his defensive potential though/ He's also a big mystery for me atm as I've only seen the U19 tournament. Where he averaged 18 pts 8.3 Rebounds and 3 assists. Also hit a lot of clutch shots/passes.
5. Had 28pts 7 rebs and 6 assits vs Japan and 26pts 13 rebounds against Argentina.
The 6-10, 209 pound forward has a versatile game and can do a little bit of everything on the court. He’s able to handle the ball in the open court, hit the outside shot and score in the lane. He makes good reads with the ball and has an advanced feel for the game.
He’s not an explosive vertical athlete but he’s very quick for a 6-10 player and runs the floor really well. He’s well built with broad shoulders and natural power.
I'd like to also mention Kendall Brown who I'm sure is going to start flying up boards. Tankathon now has him at 14 after he wasn't even in the first a couple of days ago. Also there's Keegan Murray who I've been told about, but need to watch for my self. The numbers are a thing of beauty though.
Of the 4 mentioned prospects I'd probably lean towards Collins or Watson in terms of "Potential Ceiling", but at the same time I feel Jovic is the typical good European prospect with stats to match that people are afraid of. Then once in the league we ask "how the f did he fall so low?" His feel for the game/IQ exceeds the rest by a good margin IMO.
But who really knows, I've been wrong plenty of times.
