I'm watching him play rn and I'm surprised by how good he is defensively. The thing that bothers me is he missed the EASY game winner vs Temple.

I like Isaac too.   The word 'smooth' is a real apt way to describe him.  I don't get why he's not being talked about more.

Isaac is still behind Tatum and Jackson in the SF ranking

but in terms of who has the highest upside, it is Isaac

6'10 SF with 9'1 reach.   Very good handles, shooter, willing passer, rebounder (even though slim)

He just needs to add 20 pounds to be able to play properly/efficiently at the NBA level

Between now and the NBA combine/workouts he proves he can add mass (even 5 pounds) ...    i would take a chance on this kid.

I think that the article above talks about that specifically:

Quote
Unlike Ingram, who averaged nearly 35 minutes a game and got to dominate the ball on a Duke team with a short rotation last season, Isaac’s talents could be somewhat hidden on a deep Florida State team with a lot of other options on offense.

I think that he is already a better prospect than Ingram. Similar build but 15 pounds heavier. Already a good defender both in skills and versatility. Same offensively, just without the ppg yet.

Quote
At the age of 19, he has shown the ability to defend multiple positions, shoot the ball, put it on the floor, create for himself and others, rebound, and protect the rim.

A healthy Giles is the only player that I take over Isaac right now.

Can he move up to PF? I think we're pretty much set at SF with Brown

I'm a big fan. I need to watch more of him, but he's definitely caught my eye.

at the moment no...

He is 15 pounds away from able to play SF at the nba level... and prob need another 10-15 pounds on top of that to play PF at the NBA

but hey KG once was a scrawny kid. Anything is possible

I am full.

If he falls to Celtics, we have to take him. This is why you do not trade the 2017 pick.

same here...  Not everyday you see 6'10 players with above average handles and smooth jump shot

in addition put it together and handle the ball, stop and pop in one motion

high level motor too. Will crash the boards.

Isaac has one of the highest upsides of the 2017 draft

Issac could easily be the pick. The body control he showcases on those drives is so much more deliberate than what you typically see from Brandon Ingram.

Ingram is an artsy type outside the Basketball world and I think it shows in his demeanor and shot selection. Not that that necessarily a knock on him but I do think that Isaac looks a bit more serious and deliberate in his actions.

Great mechanics on his shooting. Positional versatility. Someone to matchup with Durant when we play the warriors in the finals. 8)

He'd be a good pick.  Athletic pf.  He is skinny but plays tough.

 A back-up plan in case we got the fifth pick.

 How does this sound.
  A 6'10" Power Forward, with over a 9 foot standing reach. Who can shoot the three at .375%.

 He knocks down free throws at .800%. shoots .533% from the field, and .654% from two.

 He's got great feet and can switch onto almost anyone. Great handles, decent passer but does need to add weight and strength to play more PF.

 Here are his strengths from Draft Express.

 Strengths
-Great size and reach for a combo forward – 6' 10.5” with a 7' 1.25” wingspan and 9' 0.5” standing reach. Solid base considering how thin he is up top.
-Super fluid for his size. Good athlete who can play above the rim in space, especially off two feet.
-Excellent feet defensively. Can get in a stance and keep the ball in front vs PnR or switch ball screens. Fairly comfortable stepping out and guarding wings.
-Projectable shooting stroke. Solid mechanics. Range out to the college 3-point line. Can make a pull up jumper.
-Shows flashes of aggression going to the rim. Excellent ball handler for his size. Makes an effort to mix in slight hesitations.
-Improved passer.
-Made an effort to get in on the glass and rebound in traffic despite his frame. Reach and quick leaping ability allow him to go up and get boards.
