Hope he doesn't hire an agent. Kid isn't going to be drafted this year if he comes out. Just hasn't shown NBA level talent yet. NBA size and possibly athleticism, sure. Talent, no.

I didn't understand the hurry to declare. It's not like he needs the $$

On a side note look out for the next brother Alexandros. He is supposed to be better than Giannis at the same age....

Which could be saying nothing considering Giannis at that age was nothing really to write home about, just a skinny athlete

I haven't seen him on any mock drafts. Anybody know where he is projected to be drafted? Seems like he's a project like his brother was. Not sure how much of a freak he is tho.

I’ve seen anywhere from very late 1st to undrafted.  I’m in the camp that he should be a late 2nd or undrafted myself.

I've seen somewhere that a team might take him not because of his talent, but because they can form a relationship with Giannis and his agent ahead of Giannis' free agency in a few years.

A move that paid great dividends for the Suns with Goran Dragic.  ::)

By that logic, the Bucks might as well draft him.
