JJ will be better than KP when all is said and done [in 2020]. Mark it. — AIG, with Indy betting against

My [2019-20] prediction is better than mid 30s... mark it down! — Superbone

You just know this will cause him to drop and then some team is going to draft him at #11 or whatever pick and have a really high-upside player on their hands.

I'd still draft him if the medicals check out. Remember Embiid. Then again, Manute struggled with injuries too.
1st round targets: Brandon Clarke, Rui Hachimura, Nickeil Alexander Williams, Bol Bol, Dylan Windler, Grant Williams, PJ Washington
2nd round targets: Tremont Waters, Dedric Lawson, Zylon Cheathem, Mike Daum, Robert Franks Jr.

if suns dont get the #1 overall pick, should strongly consider trading that pick for an all star/leader.

Milos Teodosic for the #2 pick, perhaps

I really don't think you can draft Cam Reddish. He is a complete mess. The tools are there, but he is mentally fragile and his decision-making is woefully subpar, and he seems to get overwhelmed by the slightest bit of pressure (game-winner vs FSU not withstanding).

Agree. Havent seen anything from him that says he's anything special. Was against him from day 1.

I’m pretty unenthused with quite a few of the top guys. Reddish, Little, Barrett. I’d pass on all of them. Zion is the clear #1 for me. Ja and Deandre Hunter are next. Bol is still kinda intriguing to me.

I've actually warmed up to Barrett. His shot is a disaster, but his motor, rebounding, passing, and fast break ability makes him a viable draft option.

The shot is what worries me the most. He does have a lot going for him. I’ll keep my mind open about him.

After Josh Jackson, I say, I'm totally excited to bring in young prospects with good "motor" and "energy" who cannot shoot! Nothing can possibly go wrong with a player like that!

From me it's Zion->Barrett->Morant->(trade down for) Hunter->trade out. There are a few other prospects I like, like Brandon Clarke, Jarrett Culver, etc, but none of them are clean fits.

I could easily see Morant bypassing Barrett, but he's not there just yet for me. Morant obviously fills a need way more than Barrett does.

I’m a big Clarke fan...unfortunately he still can’t shoot. He’d be the ideal 4 man if he could shoot.

If I'm the Suns, Bol Bol is undraftable in the lottery. I'm skeptical about how his game will translate to the NBA and he's already having injury problems.
