I know this one is a ways away but if the NBA commish lifts the 1yr college eligibility rule this will actually be like 2 drafts in one since all the tops HSers will be available for the 2019 draft.

Man. I freed up a lot of time about a month ago when I gave up on the Lakers pick conveying and stopped watching videos of this year’s top 5. Guess that time will be going to film of Kingspick2020 now... 8) 8)

If I am understanding transactions correctly, miracle scenario for C's in the 2019 draft would be #2 (fm Sac), #9 (fm Memphis), #15 (fm Clips) and C's own pick. 

Season watch threads will dominate early here in the fall.

To be honest, all of the top 7 prospects seem very underwhelming. Everyone seems to be very high on Bol Bol, but I'm not convinced he is going to have a long career based on his playing style, and his father's medical history, and how tall he is. At least he's 7'3 and not 7'7 lol.

Not sure why either. He's young so I don't want to call him a future bust, but he definitely doesn't "wow" you. He's just taller than his competition, but when you compare him against NBA players when they were his age and it's clear to see how far away he is from being a top prospect.

I'd be happy with Zion and hope that Stevens can mold him into a ultra-athletic Draymond. I've seen the Barkley and Grandmama comparisons and you can see that as well. His athleticism and strength at his age is freak level.

I actually want that Memphis pick to keep carrying over until itís unprotected.  A better chance of a star player that way.

Yeah, which is why we need to age limit rescinded in order to have the top 2020 guys to be in the 2019 draft.

James Wiseman has to be our target if Silver eliminates one and done, thereby allowing HS seniors to enter the 2019 draft. Kid is said to have Anthony Davis level talent. Watched some video. Very smooth, long and athletic. That Sacramento pick looking better by the day. Too bad itís number 1 protected!!

speaking of Wiseman, he is coached by Penny Hardaway and his teammate is also a top level high school junior (Chandler Lawson).  I know this because I saw a report that that the U of Memphis was thinking of firing Tubby Smith and hiring Penny in a large part because Wiseman, Lawson, and DJ Jeffries (another high level Memphis area junior who is on Penny's AAU team) are not even considering attending the University of Memphis.  U of Memphis obviously thinks that hiring Penny will lead to at least 1, if not all 3 of those kids, going to U of Memphis.  Supposedly if Penny does get that job he will hire Larry Brown as his top assistant to help guide him for the first few seasons.

What are the experts saying about this draft in general? Is it as strong as the upcoming 2018 draft? (I assume not.)

At this time it does not look as strong.  Remember that Bagley was the #1 guy in that class, and this year he could go 3rd behind Ayton and Doncic.  Porter might be a better prospect than all those guys next year as well, although Zion and RJ Barrett could catch up with improvement.
