    Agreed. If Porzingas gets injured or even nicked up, he will find himself at the bottom of the 1st instead of the middle of the draft.

    My boy Jokic withdraws as well, announced by his agent today.

    Smart decision. Otherwise one of the great steals in second round.

    Well, that's what I call a reliable agent. :grin:

    Jokic is ranked 42nd in Draft Express' top 100. Houston holds the 42nd pick. Reminds me of a bigger Scola. Lacks athleticism but really crafty and intelligent player with surprising vision.

    A better stretch 5 candidate is Alec Brown. One of the purest shooters in draft, and over 7' tall. Also a good shot blocker. But lacks strength to defend in post & poor rebounder. May not even be drafted.

    Inglis is the one that intrigues me. He may be the more raw in terms of basketball experience and IQ, but his potential is through the roof. Inglis is a manchild on offense, and just plain MAN on defense. He's my pick at 42.

    I like both as second round steals, and I'm afraid Hinkie or other GM's would take them earlier than us.

    Makes me wonder if any team promised him a first round selection...

    He's continued to improve this season as a better shooter/rebounder, and is listed as top10 pick so far on draftexpress.

    I can see why, if he really has the outside shooting touch that they say he does. He clearly has the height and length...

    He reminds me of Darko Milicic somehow, I bet Detroit Pistons won't take him if by any chance he falls that low.

    LOL interesting to see old posts about Inglis here. He hasn't played yet so I have no idea if your assesments were spot on or way off. But I'm very excited to watch him in summer league.

    Kristaps should go over Mudiay in my opinion. But he won't. WCS even may go over him :rolleyes: . I see him either to the Magic or the Kings. Unless ofc he has terrible workouts.

    No physical strength(weak) and and no post game but he's 7'1" and a great shooter.

    Idk if this guy is going to turn into KG (also skinny and no post game when he was young) or Brad Miller. That's a huge ceiling floor gap right there LOL.

    My guess is he turns into Mehmet Okur or more likely a slightly bigger/better Adrea Bargnani.

    My money is on the Magic as well, he'd fit in nicely next to Vucevic and Harris.

    Only thing is that in that lineup, he'd pretty much never be expected to do anything in the paint.

    Yep. Magic have him at the top of their board after KAT, JO.


    Which means Sac is likely to go WCS at #6 UNLESS they reach for Cameron Payne.
