Yeah.....tell me Im wrong but when was the last time a 'draft and stash' player worked out. My only experience with it is when the Cavs took Christian Eyenga with the 28th pick or something and his highlights looked like they were filmed in a high school gym in a under funded district and he failed miserably.

None of these players have played a single game. I thought Barrett would be the best prospect in the class.....

Denver had to wait a year before Jokic came over.

Bertans?
Celtics fan. :crazy:
We also face the Kings twice in the near future. I think it's time Yabu pays back some of that free money he's been given his entire career and bounces Fox for a nice 2 week ankle sprain.

Celtics added a bunch of shooting and OKC got a huge steal in Maledon. He's gonna ironically have a SGA like potential.

Meanwhile my Raps just drafted another VanVleet to prevent downside of not paying. Solid but VERY disappointed we didn't take Maledon or Terry.

Mavs have had a very good day imo.

Lakers need to trade up for Mannion. Caruso Mannion backcourt just has the looks of a dynasty

Soooooo since we are all sitting here doing nothing, whats everyones opinion of Kaleb Wesson? You see randos going right now but nobody wants to take one of the best, if not THE best, player in the BigTen?

Your telling me a guy named Jordan Nwora from Louisville is a better basketball player than Kaleb Wesson?

Mavs would give him a multiyear deal too as second rounder....like they did with Brunson and like they are going to do with Terry

Second round contracts are not near as good usually, as well as much easier to get out of. But yea, no player hopes they fall to the second round.


Pretty sure he is pissed. Carlisle makes every shooter looking great. Could cost him on his second contract a lot of money

https://www.star-telegram.com/sports/college/big-12/texas-christian-university/article247214741.html

First player in NBA history to be pissed he was a first round pick then.

But sure, have at it.

why do you think that, he looks most NBA ready to me out of all players drafted?


Obi has the mak8bgs of a good outside shooter

Just my intuition telling me hes not going to get those easy buckets in the league. He gives me Thomas Robinson vibes.


I feel this, but Obi can at least, in theory, knock down outside shots, too.

Good pick by the Bucks. Was hoping that Nwora would drop a bit more but its wasnt meant to be.
