There's another guy on UNC I like a ton, that'll likely be 2nd round to undrafted, but I need more footage before I write about him on my Substack.


Leaky?

Looks like they all decided to run it back.

Good thing I have another guy on my list then.

MikeLG and others, what do you think of Caleb Love and his draft prospects?

The kid seems to have the "it" factor to me, but maybe I am overrating him.

What do you think of him and is he a top NBA prospect?


Saw this late.

I tend not to like guys that just show up in the tournament and then get hyped for a hot streak performance instead of showing some level of NBA skills for the entire season.

He's running it back right? If he was a 1st rounder, he wouldn't.

I know you didn't ask my opinion. But Caleb Love is historically bad from inside the arc - 38% on 2 point shots. You couple that with lack of playmaking and you can see why he's not a lock first rounder at this point and decided to go back to school to improve on his game. We'll have to see if the tournament was a sign of things to come, or just a hot streak. Even if you look at his ACC tourney and NCAA tourney shooting numbers, there were two good games mixed in with a lot of bad.

2-10 against UVA
3-17 against VT
6-15 against Marguette
1-6 against Baylor
11-24 against UCLA
6-17 against St Peters
11-20 against Duke
5-24 against KU

Excellent response.

48/29/36 (rim, mid, 3pt) FG% is basically undraftable.

If Detroit had landed at #1, I think the debate between Chet and Banchero would be legit because they have a #1 option in Case. But Orlando desperately needs someone to run their half-court offense through better than Cole Anthony. If the Magic draft Chet - as wonderful of a prospect as he is - they're building a team entirely of third scoring options.

Yeah, I think he'll slip because he's not explosive, doesn't really make decisions off the dribble, and is more of a standstill decision-maker, but he'd be fine/great 2nd round to UDFA.

At least he got his dad's jumper.
