Are you big on Musa? I don't understand if I'm missing something on the guy.

No, he only makes sense to me if he's a knockdown shooter and from everything I've read/seen, he's a streak shooter/rhythm guy.

Anyone like UCLA's Aaron Holiday for the Lakers, a decent all-around guy coming out this Summer ? I do. Hey, I think he played with Lonzo a year back too.

I like him in the 2nd round, though the Denver pick (currently #48) may be too low to get him.


Yep.
He's come on strong this year:
TS%: .617
3PAr: .406
FTr: .475

Just remember he's only 6-1 and he's turning 22 this year.
If he's anything like his brother, he'll be gone by the 2nd round


Yeah, he's putting up legit #s to warrant first round consideration. He's got wingspan to him as well, and unlike some shorter guards, has some strength to handle contact in the paint.

He's just TO prone. That's my only issue. I loved the chemistry between him and Zo when UCLA made their runs or needed to close.


Agreed. Ties into him being over-aggressive at times, on either end. But he was a great backup for Lonzo at UCLA, and I think he'd make a good complement to Lonzo, either as a backup or in tandem with him.

I'll give this thread a thumbs up for no other reason than you didn't call it "official."

Want Nance to ball out. Want Clarkson hook up with all the CLE IG "models" they have there. All 3 of them. And I want a pick in the teens.

I haven't seen much. I just really wasn't impressed with his shot selection and lack of wingspan.

lonnie walker is one of my favs - think he's gonna be a much better pro than college guy


he better be....guy has not lived up to expectations yet @ U of Miami


nah miami is finally realizing that lonnie is their go to and he's been playing like it of late. check out his game logs for the last like 7-8 games in a row.

Lonnie Walker Game Log


I was not aware he had picked his game up to that degree...if he finishes strong, he is going to be in lottery range discussions.....where he was expected to be when he arrived @ Miami. Appears Bruce Brown is till pretty inconsistent this season.

Michael Porter Jr. is still saying he expects to return this season.

LINK

for selfish reasons, I hope he does because I wish to see how he looks....but if he does not perform well is such a small sample, it could hurt his draft stock.

We basically traded to solid draft pics and will get a decent draft pick back. We should have gone for a 2nd round pick as well.

We need a Clint Capela esque center for next season.


Has anyone heard anything about Austin Wiley (Auburn) returning to college or going pro next season? If your unfamiliar, he has been declared ineligible this season due to the CBB FBI Probe. He was ok last year as a Freshman, but was supposed to have a big year this year after performing well this summer @ the U19's. He is 6'11" with a 7'5" wingspan...rebounder, shot blocker, rim runner...can see a Capella comparison.
