    Brandon Miller has a ton of potential. I guess I prefer Thompson to him though.

    Miller is a decent passer and creator out of the PnR. Shooting won’t hurt either. My only concern is we need one perimeter player who can guard the other teams best. Can Miller do that or are we hoping to slide Jabari out?

    No idea. I don't know the kid. I do know that he is connected to a highly publicized murder, and that's never a good look. All things being equal, you don't take that kid if you have another option that works for you just as well. At some point, the talent will outweigh the risk. That might be at pick 4 tonight.

    I’m not a Miller fan but at 4 he’s the obvious pick. You have 2-5 solidified for several years with Green, Miller, Jabari, and Sengun.

    I see a scenario where the Rockets sit there and just take Amen and calls their bluff.

    Look, i'd trade up if Charlotte drafts Miller instead of Scoot. In that scenario Rockets give up KMJ or some other non-Sengun/Jalen/Jabari asset. For Scoot. Trading up for Amen? Nope.

    Other than that, no thanks. We take whoever is left of the four. That's fine.

    According to draft kings, Amen is still the favorite to go fourth in the draft.

    3rd overall pick:

    Miller -320
    Scoot +260
    Amen +600

    4th pick:

    Amen -350
    Ausar +500
    Whitmore +600
    Miller +1000

    Called this exact **** days ago. We're going to get Bancheroed again. It seems like teams/insiders are manipulating the betting lines. I wonder why they'd feel the need to do that.

    Todd Whitehead | @CrumpledJumper
    We're working on some new player comp tools @SynergySST. Here's a sneak peek at the "NBA play-a-likes" for 14 potential lottery picks in tonight's draft based on their production (box score), play style (play-type + shot-type rates), and efficiency (PPP).

    Here are some examples of stats that we are using to find player comps (all measured relative to league-average performance):
    •production: PPG, assists, steals, blocks
    •style: post-up rate, 3PAr, rim rate, C&S rate
    •efficiency: on-ball PPP, 3P%

    Here are some examples of things we did *not* use to determine a guy's "NBA play-a-likes":
    •height (or other body measurements)
    •age (or other surrogates for potential)
    •direct measures of athleticism

    As such, these can't be interpreted as projections or draft comps.

    In other words, these are *not* the three most likely career outcomes for each prospect, they are three NBA players who had similar statistical profiles as the prospect last season (each relative to his own competition level).
