    Polarizing prospect, for sure. Is he a future star?

    consensus #2 or #3 pick. he's a very good player but so is Ja morant. It pretty much depends what kind of player youre looking for. a pg or a wing

    Barrett is not a wing- he's a ball-dominant Ben Simmons-type point-3 who can shoot. And, yes, he's "hot"- CLE has made no secret they are trying to trade up for him, to build their entire team around.

    hes surely not a pg. hes surely not a big man.

    hes a wing player. no hes not ben simmons. just because they're both left handed doesnt make them so

    Barrett is and has been the second best prospect in this draft and I wouldn’t be shocked if he is the best player in this draft in 5-6 years.

    The James Harden comparisons are a little silly. That really isn’t Barrett’s game.

    I predict he will be a star. He has such a high motor, and his shoot has decent form. I predict he becomes a much better shooter over time.

    I am curious if the Knicks are willing to trade away #3 pick for a James Harden, if the Rockets want to rebuild right away.

    The time to trade James Harden is now, his value is at its peak, James Harden is relatively healthy, good knees, Achilles etc. No major injuries thankfully. I want to start over as a Franchise especially when the corrupt referees are still in this decade.

    Ja morant clearly seems like the number 1 pick - Zion hype is the only reason he may fall to 2

    Heavily overhyped as well.
