1. Wiseman - He'll make his share of defensive mistakes, but there's too much there there to like for a player his size, and I'm convinced he will dominate.
2. Okongwu - The best defender in this draft and has a reasonable chance to be an above average offensive player. Will make his team better.
3. Killian Hayes - looks and plays like a man among boys - while being younger than everyone else.
4. Anthony Edwards - yeah, he's still a bit overrated, but there's no doubt he's an explosive scorer who can score in many ways and is capable of being an all-around player.
5. Tyrese Haliburton - Maybe the smartest player in the draft. Basically the same size as SGA, and the fact that SGA has excelled is an indication that Haliburton's thin frame won't hurt him too much.
6. Obi Toppin - Outstanding offensive potential and could develop into an adequate defender.
7. Aaron Nesmith - pick inspired by Dat, but I've been consistent - I've been pumping up Nesmith for quite a while. I think he's a better prospect than Hield was.
8. Josh Green - he's been overshadowed by teammate Niko Mannion, but he's a better NBA prospect. Really good all-around 2 with some combo-guard ability.
9. Saddiq Bey. Dat had the other Bey here, but I think Saddiq is such a good fit as a 3 in today's NBA game.
10. Deni Avdija - I'm not completely sold on him (3 point shot mainly), but in this draft - it's hard to pass up an all-around talent like him. Giving him the slight edge over Tyler Bey, Daniel Oturu, Vernon Carey, and Jalen Smith.
i dont get it with Bey or Nesmith... Vassell is CLEARLY a better prospect and younger than both.
Look, i like Nesmith, but he is a below average defender that cannot create. His freshman year was mediocre at best, and I know his shooting is tremendous.... but it was a 14 game sample size before he got hurt and was comprised of lighting up SE Missouri St., Richmond, Tulsa, UNC Wilmington, and SMU.
Vassell was not as efficient scoring, but he averages more rebounds, more assist, more blocks, more steals, fewer turnovers, and fewer fouls... against tougher competition.
