I can't figure out if Drew Timme is two inches too short or the next Domantas Sabonis.
I think he’s too small. Can he defend anyone in the nba? Can he shoot at all?

Another reason Suggs is better, what a shot to win it!

OK. Sorry Jalen Suggs. You're a top 5 pick. :lol:

You're probably right.

Ya that was a special sequence...for those who aren’t watching:

And he hit a big bucket just before that sequence.

This feels accurate about Suggs

He has a decent jumper, but he'll have to take/make more at the pro level. I think his height is perfect. If he were taller, he wouldn't be as mobile. He'll get underrated because he looks like he balls at the YMCA, and he doesn't have standout athleticism, but he is really fundamentally solid. I think he has the chance to be a solid pro.

Add Joel Ayayi to my list of guys I like for the Suns.
I've gone back an forth on him. Love the range and rebounding, but I don't love him as an NBA 2, and he isn't really a point guard either.

Worth taking in the first round for some team, but I don't think there is a large enough role on this Suns roster to warrant spending our only first rounder on him.

Thanks for the highlights for those of us who missed it.

I wouldn't expect it to happen his rookie season, but he looks like a good replacement for Cam Payne.

I would prefer to replace Cam with a point guard.

In my world, Dario is the sixth man for the rest of eternity. He's the initiator.

Dario is great, but we will be in trouble if we ask him to do too much. We need more than one initiator on the court.

Well Baylor ran Gonzaga off the court. I really think Jared Butler might be an option for us in the draft. He’s probably more of a secondary playmaker, but he has a pretty well rounded game. His shot looked great tonight, his defense looks solid. I’ve literally only watched him in the tourney, but I think there’s potential there to be a 3rd guard. I like Mitchell better, but I feel like he’s moved himself up above the Suns range with his play.

Timme really struggled against their athleticism. Granted I only watched the Final Four so I don't know the players as well as you guys but I obviously knew he was a marquee guy

Random....
I was convinced Davion was family to Donovan, I've read that Donovan reached out to him and has been giving him advice and he even did one dribble between the legs into a pull-up that was eerily similar lol

Baylor was lights out, game was decent entertainment

Trayce Jackson-Davis could fall to us if he declares. I think he could fill a need for us. FTA, I am not sure how well it translates to the NBA but he is good at it.


Well, so much for that idea as it looks like he is returning to Indiana.
