How does ESPN not list Zion Williamson?

It would be incredible if we end up with the third and ninth pick especially if Robert Williams works out.  Ainge will have so many options.

It's the best prospects for each team, so they have Barrett > Williamson.

I don't know much about Zion as a prospect, but this is impressive.

I believe he's 6'6" and over 250.

  • When my account was born, Mark Blount was our C :(
Looking at one of the mocks here, I did a little breakdown just off basic info:

TOP TIER - All swings and wings:

SF - R.J Barrett - Duke
SG - Cam Reddish - Duke
SF - Nassir Little - UNC


TIER 2 - High Upside Forwards:

SF - Sekou Doumbouya - France
SF/PF - Zion Williamson - Duke


TIER 3A - High Upside Centers:


C - Bol Bol - Oregon
C - Charles Bassey - Western Kentucky
C - Daniel Gafford - Arkansas


TIER 3B - High Upside Guards:

PG/SG - Quentin Grimes - Kansas
SG - Keldon Johnson - Kentucky
SG - Romeo Langford - Indiana


So of the 5 guys in the top 1-2 tiers, we'd hope 2-4 look like great-to-elite prospects. 

Of the 3 elite center prospects, hopefully 1-2 look great, and the same with the 3 elite guards.

So we hopefully have 5-8 great-to-elite prospects in the mix with the Sacramento pick- with at least 1 elite center and 1 elite guard on the board even if we pick out of the top 5- and with up to 2-4 of these guys looking like studs in case the pick is #1-4.

Give us this pick, Almighty Red
And forgive us our tanking
As we forgive those who tanked against us
And lead us not into the lottery
But deliver us from losing

Nassar Little looks pretty legit. I'm not as high on Barrett, Reddish, Williamson, or Doumbouya. They all look like decent prospects, but not upper tier prospects.

I think people are sleeping on this Jaylen Hoard kid going to Wake Forest. He is a long athlete with long strides. He has a variety of really impressive finishing moves, like eurosteps, step-throughs, and finish-overs. In my initial arm-chair scouting, He is number two after Little on my board.

That's pretty impressive. Looks like a thicker Jordan making it look easy.

 Yeah, Try 285 pounds as a freshman. It makes him the second current  heaviest player in the NBA, behind the seven foot 3 ogre Boban.

 Now that's only 15 pounds away from being 300 and you figure he's going to easily add weight he's only 19 It's just tough to see those knees holding up at 300 pounds but you never know he does look like a LeBron type clone.

I don't think he's that heavy, at least he doesn't look it in the videos I've seen. Maybe when he was a junior in HS but not now. Not sure why he's listed at 285.

It's insane to think the Celtics could end up with 1 each of Nassir Little or Cam Reddish or Zion, AND Daniel Gafford, Bol Bol or Charles Bassey. 

My Tankathon mock just came up Nassir Little at #3 and Daniel Gafford at #11.  Uh, I'll take it.

Is he the second coming of Robert "Tractor" Traylor? Or even worst, Oliver Miller?

I'm not high on Bol Bol. Looks like he will just crumble under contact. Love Little. Like Reddish.

Gafford looks intriguing but foul-prone. Bassey need to see more but looks nice and big..

Also like Louis King..

As long as at least 2 of those 3 bigs plus maybe Jontay Porter, so 2 of 4, turn out to be '5th starter on a great team' caliber players, we should be in good shape. 

What do we think the chances of that are?  30-35% ?

Yeah we already have more or less Gafford on our roster in RW3 (they even played a big game vs each other this year). So I'm not sure I'd go in that direction. I'd draft a stud combo forward with the Sac pick and maybe Porter with the Grizz..

Yeah, the Sac pick would ideally be a wing type player (Little, Reddish, Zion, Sekou, Langford, Grimes) and the Memphis pick a big man.  For Gafford the logic is, if you draft him and he and RW3 are both 50/50 shots to become a Capella-level player, then you're likely to hit once.

who would bol crumble against ? Nba is looking a lot less "muscular" and a lot more players  like Ingram and kuzma. Bol hasn't crumbled against top of the line AAU players ... Not seeing him do so anytime soon

Motombo type players are becoming extinct

With 4 possible picks all over the first round, I'm already excited for the college season.
