Star with Jonathan Givony but every time I hear it mentioned in podcasts it is referred to as weak.
next year isnít considered weaker. Source?
We might end up with 4 1st round picks next year if things fall the right way... My head is spinning with the possibilities. So for now I'll just pretend it's not a thing and root for Robert Williams to pan out big time!!We don't have room for 4 prospects and next year's draft is considered weaker at this point. I'd prefer the Memphis pick to rollover to 2021 when it becomes unprotected. Probably need to go ahead and get the Clippers pick because I don't want chance it rolling over to a 2nd rounder.
Here's a Givony tweat from a few months ago.
Surprise? Word on the street is Daniel Gafford (#16 in the ESPN Top 100) is heavily considering going back to Arkansas next season. Nothing final yet, but seems to be heading in that direction. 2018 is loaded with big men, while 2019 looks very weak right now (at every position).https://twitter.com/DraftExpress/status/978327598567653379
I've followed some of the prospects at the top 12, like Nasir, Reddish, Bassey, Barrett, and etc. They all project to have nice careers, Nasir, Reddish, and Barrett/Zion could become household names. I actually think this draft is going to have some sleepers.
Also, trust me when I say this nicely. Bol Bol will not have a long career, and I honestly think he's going to be a bust. A lot can change in an NBA prospect, so I wouldn't count him out, but boy oh boy does he just not look that great on the floor. If he wasn't like over 7'3, he wouldn't have any business being on the court.
My top 5 favorite draftees in no order:
Jontay Porter (If he can prove to reach his ceiling, and lower body fat %)
Barrett is clearly up there, but I'm not convinced his game is going to translate that well into the NBA. Then again, we've seen the same skeptics judge Tatum for his low 3P %.
I also like Luka Samanic. I think he'll be one of the sleepers in this draft. Same goes for E.J. Montgomery, who'll be alongside Bassey in the loaded frontcourt at Kentucky. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BzJUocedk8Q
