    Great rebounder, good shot blocker. Morey gets his most undersized PF yet.

    Some random guy on reddit did some analysis and he has Melton as the best player defensively in the draft, FWIW:

    He’s from La = Harden will like

    He loves using the hash tag. #SomethingLight

    Problem there... Harden will not like that. He likes something heavy. Thick girls.

    How do we know he can’t shoot? He sat out the entire season? Hopefully he was working on his shot.

    yea he was bad offensively fresh yr and he sat out last yr.

    yea if he worked on his shot, he'll be a huge asset

    anyone who thinks he's a key defensive piece against the warriors as a rookie defensively is fooling themselves though

    good value pick all in all, i just personally liked other guys, but will defer to morey's track record.

    It's written by a talented high schooler who is regardless a high schooler. And this isn't machine learning.
