Everyone is focused on the Lakers pick. I'm just pointing out a few players who are largely ranked at 2nd round picks that the Cs could look at with their pick.

Austin Wiley
, Soph Center for Auburn has great size 6'11 7'5wing and 250lbs. He is currently suspended while the FBI investigates if Chuck Person paid his family to get him to Auburn. He is a project who was very effective just under 9pts 5rb and 1.3blks in 18mpg as a freshman. Played in the FIBA U19 this summer and averaged 10pt 10rb in 20mpg. He would be a project who could turn into a legit traditional starting 5.

Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk, wing for Kansas. He is young for his senior class. elite shooting prospect.

Grayson Allen, everyone knows him. Hard nosed physical guard who shoots the ball really well

Shake Milton, SMU big guard who plays point for SMU at 6'6 with a 7' wingspan. Also shoots the ball at a very high level

I'd truly stay away from Allen...what the dude does with his legs on defense are not basketball plays. He'll be out of the league in a year or two.

I will agree his behavior on court leaves a lot to be desired but I can easily see DA liking him. As a physical guard who can play both on and off the ball and hit the 3 he will have long term value as an NBA bench player.

I just did a separate thread on Mitchell Robinson, who could be available late first round. Check it out.

could you be a bit more specific on "his legs"? thanks.

I am someone that thinks the LA pick will convey so there is a great chance we either trade this pick or draft a stash player. This team just won't need two more rookies next year.

If the pick doesn't convey, I still see the Cs drafting a player to stash.

Grayson Allen wouldn't be a bad pick. He reminds me a lot of Dellavedova

I was going to include Robinson but there is so little info him in terms of international play, game videos or even high profile high school matchups for me to have an opinion on him. I will say that based on the Mcdonalds highlights and his measurements he would be another interesting late 1st pick up.

One thing to note is that Austin Wiley and projected mid first round pick Brandon McCoy both beat out Robinson in the Team USA U19 tryouts.

Rawle Alkins.  With AB gone and with the chance that Smart doesn't come back, Alkins is a big, tough guard that can defend. Would be a good addition.

Now let's get Ayton and Alkins, the Tucson two-step, and we are in business.  ;D

I dunno the league tolerates Matthew Dellavedova, Sasha Vujačić and Zaza Pachulia.

In all honesty, I hope we get better players than are on the above list.

Shake Milton or Bruce Brown would be good, assuming we lose Smart.

If we keep Smart I'd take one of the lower bigs, like Robinson or Austin Wiley

Plenty of guys do plenty of things that are not basketball plays. Smart has. Wade has. Simmons just did in the game today. Marcus Morris gets into multiple dust-ups every year. Cousins is constantly throwing elbows. Draymond Green plays with an edge that verges on dirty non-basketball plays. Isaiah Thomas just whacked Wiggins in the head.

I'm not saying he's not dirty. I'm just saying I think the "tripping" thing is a bit overexaggerrated. None of his trips were dangerous to the opposing basketball player. They were unsportsmanlike, but not dangerous. I think hard fouls in the air or tomahawking a guys arm on a drive is more dangerous than any dirty play Allen has made.

At that point, you just have to examine his work ethic, team attitude, and ability to impact the game. I really like his three-point shooting and I think his driving will be even better with a spread out court in the NBA. He plays for a winning team, and he helps his team win games. He has one of the best euro-steps in college basketball and has the ability to finish explosively at the rim.

He will end up being a good player if he gets drafted by a good coach like Pop, Carlisle, Spo, or CBS. In the right system, he could be an Evan Fournier, which is great value late in the first round.

Not a fan of Grayson Allen but I actually thinks his offensive game will translate well to the NBA an he will have a good career. I think it depends on how Tatum feels about him tbh.
