I haven’t looked at the later pg’s. Tyrell Terry is interesting because he can really really shoot, but I think I’d rather stay away from them. We’ve spent too many picks and have too many so so pg prospects. I know that’s probably an inefficiency, but I’m just not interested in another one. I think there’s enough better pg prospects that will be there at 10. I actually really like Kira Lewis Jr. I’m leaning toward him as my pick...assuming haliburton and Hayes aren’t there.

but a team like Curry/Holiday/Luka/Lebron/Jokic would dominate offensively.
That would be an awesome lineup to see in a game.

I still have no idea what to make of Lecque
A work in progress. He needs at least another year in the G League. But I think he is showing promise.

Too much like Colin Sexton for my taste. I don't think we need a point guard whose main strength is one-on-one scoring by driving the hoop. Not a good fit with a scoring shooting guard and a big man who needs touches in the post.

He’s a much better and more willing passer than Sexton (and probably not as good of a scorer). I think Darren Collison with a bit more north-south burst is a more apt comp.

Ya, that’s fair. I do think he’s a better passer than Sexton...I didn’t spend a lot of time thinking about the fit. He does have a nice combo of speed, ball handling and shooting.

I agree, he has the tools to be a good player. And yes, he is a better passer than Sexton, but he is still the same type of player.

All I want is a Ricky Rubio who shoots better than .412. That’s not so much to ask, is it?
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

Ya I agree with that. Maybe he could be a pretty good 3rd guard. That seems like sexton’s future.

Decent breakdown of Saddiq Bey. This guy likes him more than I do, but I think the video is pretty fair overall. I like Bey as a potential small ball 4 if Jones wants to keep going with shooters and leave the rebounding to that one big guy.

Saddiq's ok, but his fans are obsessive. They call themselves the "Bey Hive." Don't mess with them on twitter!!

"Bey Hive" sounds like an Austin Powers quote.

I’m getting a little more comfortable with Avdija if he’s there at 10.

He looks decent in that video. But I swear, you could put together a video like that to get me pumped up about almost any player or prospect. I bet a Beeg Jake video like that would have me wanting to draft him at #10.
