Charlotte 2020 Big Board - Pick #1 

Post#1 » by BigSlam » Mon Oct 5, 2020 5:10 pm

With the draft just over a month away I thought it a good time to get our big board up and going for this year.

We'll keep each picks thread open for a few days before I or another mod tally the votes, lock the thread and open the next pick thread.

Wiseman will be the pick on this board. That being said here is the case for Ball:

- Highest upside of any player in the draft
- Can be a lead creator on offense and will find easy shots for Graham, PJ, and Miles
- Insanely low turnover rate
- Will be an elite guard rebounder
- Has the best handle of any prospect over the past couple of years
- 6'7 with a 6'10.5' wingspan - Allows him to easily guard the 2 and play next to Graham

Taking Edwards over Wiseman-o-saurus Rex. Maybe he can become a Jimmy Butler type.
