    Okay, so the kid signed an agent before going overseas and leaving high school. He's back at the Spire Institute for High School and Post Graduates, which allows him to attend and play. He's 17, but would have graduated High School this year had he stayed. Since he won't be 18 until August, I believe he's not allowed to be drafted just yet, but that I am not sure of and would like clarification.

    He was recently seen practicing at the Lakers facility.



    I still think he's a great NBA prospect, could be better than Lonzo if he can keep his head on straight. He's a better shooter and quite possibly a better passer comparing him to his brother at the same age. He's no Luka Doncic, but who is?

    Dude looks to be a better offensive player, weaker defensive player than his brother. Still slated as a top 5 pick! I think he'll pan out.

    Do none of the players in this draft can shoot?

    Shooting can improve. But he has natural great feel for the game, vision, high iq, scoring ability, rebound potential, bravado, confidence, and great size 6'8" pg

    He is a talented prospect, no doubt. But based on current data, I think his most likely outcome will be a role player. However, if he figures out how to shoot and becomes at least an average defender, he has All-Star potential.
