2022 Pick Watch and Draft Discussion 

Post#1 » by VCfor3 » Sat Oct 23, 2021 4:29 pm

Seeing as we have potentially three 1sts this next draft I thought it was time to start a new thread.

As of 11/20 via Tankathon
MEM 1st: 18
LAL 1st: 11 (Top 10 protected)
UTA 1st: 25 (Top 6 protected)

LAL will turn things around but that pick is looking better than expected. Davis and Howard getting into on the bench doesn't bode well.

Just did an article on my top breakout college players. Take a look if you are interested: featured are Purdue's Jaden Ivey, Colorado's Jabari Walker, Villanova's Brandon Slater, Alabama's Keon Ellis, and Michigan's DeVante' Jones

To put in context, Jaden is a top 3-10 pick, Walker is probably 2 years away, and the final three are seniors (so they will probably go second round even though they are talented). It is significant for Slater and Ellis because they were 10-15mpg guys a year ago, but should have major roles this year. I forgot Caleb Mills on Florida St until today, but he is probably poised for a huge season and I would not be surprised if he goes lotto or even high lotto (if he managed to recover from the injuries he was dealing with last season).

Think Jaden's mom worked for the Grizz at some point too before the ND job. So we have ties to this kid.

I thought Jaden looked pretty good today. Also he seems to be the popular name on Grizz twitter. Maybe we will be able to pool our picks together to move up and get him unless he really blows up.
