I don't know if Mbah a Moute is the best comparison, but he definitely looks like a 3 and D prospect. Initially I thought he might be more of a ballhandler, but it seems like the weak competition in college had me fooled. He can't really handle the ball confidently. He is very capable passer though. If I had to give him a comparison right now it's more along the lines of Royce(that's with some development in the next year or two)...


I think he's just really bad at judging body types. He compared Brantley to Sindarious Thornwell too...

I agree on the O'Neale comparison. I'd give him a two-way and see how he shoots it for a year in the D-League.

Never made sense to me as to why he was ranked so much lower than the guys closer to the top.

I will tell you who looks pretty damn good is Brandon Clarke who the griz got with our pick. On the other hand Grayson Allen has looked awful. I wouldn't be surprised if the griz end up waiving him after training camp.

He has a smoothness to his game that reminds me a lot of Brandon Roy who is one of my favorite players. He isn't as explosive as him but similarly well rounded.
