    18 year old european wonderkid declares to enter 2014 draft. He's supposed to be a lottery pick in 2015, but could be taken in late first round in 2014.

    Here's the breakdown of his game:

    His age, work ethic, shooting mechanism, athleticism, length and mobility are all lottery level in any draft. We can grab him as Euro stash, and I like the long term potential of this kid.

    As his countryman, I would love to have the Rockets draft him. He really impressed me during the U16 championships last year both skill and athleticism-wise.

    Best name in the draft. I hope he ends up in Houston or OKC.

    Why would the kid not wait a year to declare, to raise his stock?

    He's most likely going to be in a draft-and-stash situation anyway.

    a lotto pick, for sure.

    all videos of him is here

    https://www.google.lv/search?q=Porzi%C5 ... =898&dpr=1

    I think we have enough info to say that it must be a lotto pick

    if rockets can get him @25, it is a robbery

    not sure if this is the year we should get a draft and stash player. we should try to
    look for someone more nba-ready and that contribute right away. Don't think it's
    fair to Howard to not go all in to win now. At best this guy develops into a role player and we end up not having a player who can contribute immediately these next few years

    Wait but why invest in a guy who's gonna be a project and might not come for a few seasons? I feel like we need someone who can contribute right away..
