    Have you ever seen some of these moves? I'm just talking offense here, don't get me wrong, I don't know how Sabonis is defensively. But this guy has Hakeem-like offensive abilities along with some new stuff we've never seen before, and he's just 20 years old.

    I'm surprised Sabonis' teammate Wiltjier isn't getting 1st round consideration at the moment.

    6'10", 240 pounds, averaging 21 points, 7 rebounds on 49% shooting and 41% from 3 point line.

    Dude could be the next Ryan Anderson.

    Well there is two sides of coin. Wiltjer is pure shooter, waaay better than Ryan ever was, put him on Spurs or GSW and he'll average 20 like Klay on open shots.., but on other 28 he might be benchwarmup, he's not athletic tho... I see him as Dudley/Korver mix, on stretch 4. There is no way he'll defend any wing on NBA..

    You are mind-numbingly ignorant. Okafor is an ELITE offensive low-post player.

    Wiltjer is a total steal at the bottom of the second. Just a pure basketball player. Forget the lack of athleticism. Dude is just a basketball player.

    The reason why he late 1 rounder even known his 30.6 PER Similar to Simmons, Valentine or Poelt most scouts see main disadvantage - short 6'10 wingspan.

    Put him in Spurs uniform, he'll next Timmy. By the way he has spark which neither Tim Duncan, neither Bill Simmons have

    I really like his game although skeptical on how it will translate in the pros.

    He'll probably struggle in the post on both ends against longer more athletic PFs. But on the other hand, he has a lot of things that usually translate really well to the pros. To name a few - excellent rebounding, elite motor/effort, good passing & good positional defense / mobility to guard the PnR.

    Every shot in that video would have been rejected into the rafters. His sneakers never get more than 3 inches off the floor.

    Maybe, maybe not. I'll admit I think he will have to adjust his post-game a bit in the NBA, but he doesn't need to be a high-flyer to score. He's similar to DMo in the way that he doesn't need to get off the ground 20-30 inches to score over people (aka Dwight). He has enough skills/finesse to score while barely jumping.
