1. Pels - Zion Williamson
2. Grizz - Ja Morant
3. Knicks - RJ Barrett
4. Lakers - Jaxson Hayes
5. Cavs - DeAndre Hunter
6. Suns - Darius Garland
7. Bulls - Coby White
8. Hawks - Jarrett Culver
9. Wiz - Cam Reddish
10. Hawks - Bol Bol
11. Wolves - Sekou Doumbouya
12. Hornets - Rui Hachimura
13. Heat - Brandon Clarke
14. Celtics - PJ Washington
15. Pistons - Romeo Langford

Gives us the choice of Kevin Porter, NAW, Nassir Little and Tyler Herro. It's a tough call between NAW and Nassir Little for me, but in the end I take NAW I think.


I don't think Darius Garland falls out of the top 5, I believe Garland will go to the Lakers or Cavs and I don't think Cam Reddish is going in the top 10. I wouldn't be surprised if Reddish didn't go in the top 20. Other than that I'm fine with your other 13 picks. The top 3 picks are obvious to everyone. So more like your other 10 picks i'm fine with.

Yea i'll catch up at least one of 2 games.

CSKA has history of choking in big games .

i'm not so sure that Fener will advance, Datome, Ennis and Lauvergne are all hurt and won't play.



Yes think the same for Fener, add to this that Kalinic and Vezely are not 100 % as they were both announced out and that Efes is quite strong this year and already had defeated Fener multiple times. Nothing to lose for them.

Csk is having a so so year that's why I think it's redemption time for them.

Anyway , great series ahead.

I think csk will win it all.


Damn I've should put money on it

The latest nbadraft.net update has us going with KZ Okpala out of Stanford.

Names going in +/- 2 pick radius of ours include NAW, Keldon Johnson, Romeo Langford and Bol Bol.

Who do you want from that group?

Bol Bol doesn’t interest me for many reasons.

Among the others, I just haven’t seen enough to form a super strong bond to one name. I feel I could walk away intrigued by any of the 4.

Do you of you LOVE (or hate) any of the 4 wings more than the others?

I strongly prefer picking a SG with the pick, but haven't scouted enough of the PF prospects. I really like PJ Washington and think he absolutely needs to be in consideration.

NAW is my strong preference from the SGs because of his shot, defense, and the fact that his NBA skills are probably underrepresented from his college system

I’m not sure what you’re getting at about Power forwards.

My question was about the four names projected (by nbadraft.net) to go within a pick or two us and all happen to be SG/SF prospects.

Solid in many areas but not the flashiest guy. Not a great athlete. He could struggle offensively although he is a decent shooter.

He seems like the kind of guy who WeltHam and Clifford would love, so drafting him makes a lot of sense.

A lot of that had to do with Robinson coming back... NAW had gotten use to a role with him out and then just couldn’t get it going.

In ACC tournament which VT played without Robinson NAW had some good stat lines and played well

This kid is was impressive to me! I watched him play the whole scrimmage vs college level athletes and he basically stood out.

Apparently he was told not to play the very next scrimmage, maybe a certain team likes his upside! :nod:

Well... if they truly think that Vuc isn't going to still be here and they feel as though he is well worth the draft position... i guess it makes sense... as long as they have a plan for filling in any other holes. :-)

Our FO is always tight lipped. I don't buy it for a second. I'm sure we're doing our due dilligence, but no chance we go with a C at 16

Won't be upset if they go with a big at #46. Odds that the #46 pick actually sticks in the NBA is pretty slim. Might as well just pick the guy most likely to have a role in the NBA, and it could be a big man.
