Anyone have any hot takes on Dzanan Musa? He looks like Steph Curry in these highlight videos.

His numbers are pretty good (10 points in 20mpg, good shooter). I don't know much about him, but he looks like he knows how to score. Could be a good find
Mitchell Robinson. I'd love to see theC's take a flier.
I'm a fan of Zhaire Smith. He has a lot going for him:-Outlier athleticism. How quickly he can get off the ground borders on surreal. -He's tough - fights through screens, closes out hard, and attacks with a high motor on both ends.-Great feel for the game. Picks his spots well. Seems to be a good passer too.-Quick first step off the dribble.-Decent size at 6'5" with a 6'11" wingspan.His handles are shaky. And his shot scares me -- very few 3pt attempts, and 70% from the field. He also reminds me of a young JR Smith (with an IQ). But he just turned 19, came out of nowhere this season as he performed well in a tough conference, and he seems like the type of guy you want on your team.
See this article from TheStepien comparing Wendell Carter to... big Al. https://www.thestepien.com/2018/06/11/wendell-carter-quick-enough-todays-nba/Understanding that we probably won't trade up to nab a big man, it's still interesting that Carter is someone who may be around when the Knicks pick ninth. Expensive, but maybe not ridiculously expensive. If the Knicks are desperate for a PG and Trae is gone, would they consider TR, the 27th pick, plus the Clippers or Memphis 1st rounder?People see Carter as a strong, fluid athlete, very well coordinated, with skills under the basket and his jumpshot. Good character, good motor. But they wonder if his athleticism will really allow him to stand out. That ... sounds a lot like the reports we were reading about Jayson Tatum last year. It probably still makes more sense to wait for next year - keep the picks and either bundle them to get as high in the draft as we can or roll them over for future picks. But I don't know what the Cs' internal scouting report says on Carter. If he really looks like future Al, why not?
Did any one notice the current Tier breakdown in TheStepien's mock? I'm not sure if they're using Ford's old descriptors, but this appears markedly different from other sites and common opinions:Tier 1: DoncicTier 2: Jackson Jr., YoungTier 3: Bagley, Ayton, Carter, Tier 4: Bridges x2, Z. Smith, BambaTier 5: Sexton, Huerter, Knox, Shai, Melton, Milton, etc.
