Already like the undrafted signings much more than that (bleep) 35th pick. Let’s go.

I don't think playing for the summer league team is a big deal. A lot of players have played on those teams who never even get a look for a roster spot.

But, Swider and Pippen Jr. for 2-way roster spots? Teams can always release and sign different players to their 2-way spots, but this seems like they'll get a more extended look.

I hear Swider is a good shooter, which is good. It's important that any shooter can at least hold his own on defense so he can stay on the floor though.

Not impressed with this draft but hope I'm wrong. Swider is the biggest dude and he's not a good defender.

Just had a nice chat on Max Christie in the
@LakersExPod
private discord to fill the group in on what he’ll bring to the table.

Easy offensive fit, great defensive fit, upside, some misleading basic stats, a few key areas he needs to grow, & how he’s both a short & long term bet

Part of that was also talking through Christie > Jaden Hardy logic and why Liddell would’ve been a trickier fit for LA.

LA got an easy plug & play guy with upside and I’m pumped about it. He’s not perfect, but will fit well.

Cole isn’t listed as one of the best available undrafted prospects so that makes me concerned, but he’s a PF so that makes me happy I guess.

Scotty Pippen Jr (6'3" 185 lbs) was a good value pick (I actually had him ranked 47th above Christie's 51st). Of course, though, if there was a trend worth monitoring in this year's draft, it's how all the small guards with average gravity at best all slid (TyTy, Kennedy Chandler, etc). It's funny, I actually had Pippen ranked higher last year than this year, and last year scouts told him to go back to school.

Pippen really has a knack for creating havoc on offense through drawing fouls, and on defense with a really high steal rate. But I think scouts can't reconcile his just OK passing with a spiffy overall shot, which might limit his at-rim forays, and on defense he's too small and might be a straight up gambler. Is he an impact guy at this level? Likely not, but considering only 25-30 players excel in any given draft, and you got the 47th value as undrafted, that's still a reasonable outcome.

Swider and Shareef likely wouldn't cut any top 100 big board. For Swider, Syracuse guys just don't translate that well to the league, and he didn't quite cut it in Villanova. He's just a 6'9" shooter. Isn't that Kyle Wiltjer, or Kyle Singler? It feels quite uninspired. I would say, that replacing Mason Jones and Jay Huff with Pippen and Swider doesn't feel that good either. Jones and Huff were two guys who actually ranked somewhat well as 2nd rounders (Pippen came lower than both of them).

So, I guess overall...eh. We need to poach some of the Grizzlies' drafting team, that was an inspired draft for them.
