    That means his position is not safe at number 1. He might be selected by the Magic though.

    Isaiah is good target as UDFA or if Rockets acquire SRP.

    Grant has also been an empty stats guy for Pistons.

    And ask Luka how easy it was to move to the NBA and score.

    No on Mitchell. He's not worth more than the minimum as roster filler.
    Yes on Hartenstein definitely.

    The draw back is the contract that comes with each player and we have to guarantee spots for each on a roster for years to come.

    Turkish MVP....scoring 19 points a game...10 rebounds....

    how many did Sengun average as a Rocket starter? pts?....rebs?

    Wembanana 9 pts.....5 rebs in 21/22. Good luck comparing him to Doncic.
    https://www.basketball-reference.com/international/players/victor-wembanyama-1.html

    Check out his playoff stint this year (21/22) 4 pts.....1.8 rebs......4 games

    That's a fact KingSamJack

    I like Nzosa too, especially as a switchable 7 footer.

    But at 215 lbs (or less) just not seeing him as an Embiid stopper.

    Not sure there is such a thing, at any weight.

    12.1/8.2/3.6 on 29.6 min with .7 steals and 1.0 blocks a game.
    Really not bad for a rook

    But not as good as in Turkish league.

    Grown men in Turkish league
    Bigger, faster grown men in NBA.

    I am not convinced anyone has his place etched in stone, #s 1-30.

    For sure.
    But Sengun also isn’t a man yet. Given time I’m pretty confident he’s a 20/11/5 guy with decent defense.

    I know that wasn’t what y’all were discussing. Sorry for the derail

    Yes, I was being told Wembanyama is going up against grown men and won't
    have any trouble adjusting to the NBA (grown men).....well 9 pts....5 rebs internationally
    doesn't say I'm ready to kick #$$ and take names in the NBA.

    Maybe after next season? Maybe he will.......maybe he won't?
