    Amused that this is the first time you have heard a draft prospect name drop. There’s literally another kid comparing himself to Kobe when he wasn’t even a positive player in the g league and hasn’t accomplished 1/10 of what Sengun did.

    Dang this thread getting weird. When he is out of the league in 3 years, we will all look back at this thread and wish we were nicer to eachother.

    #1 prospect in Kevin Pelton’s stat based rankings. He had Lamelo 1 and Halliburton 2 last year.

    You know a thread is getting squirrely when a guy named "CertifiedTroll" is worried about the direction it's taking ...

    Third highest all time rating only behind Luka and AD. At this point I’m fairly confident that Sengun will be a better player than Green.

    Sounds like he could be one of those prospects that go 8-12 and be the steal of the draft. The Spurs must be praying he makes it to 12.

    NO, its a slim chance green will ever amount to the level of the player Christian already is. Christian is a good player, you can win it all with him on the roster, keep him and build the continuity and familiarity.

    Another bait for the Pistons, after Darko Milicic.

    I wouldn’t say slim. There is a decent chance he gets somewhere close to him though down the road. There is 0% chance you will have to give him a giant contract in 2 years though. All the while Wood decreases chances of a good pick next draft.

    I think you should stockpile great young players and take as many swings as you can in that regard until you start giving your picks back to the Thunder again.

    I thought the same thing, I guess you can't nail them all.

    Don't international scouts say Turkish League is on the come up and gotten better in terms of competition.

    His Wikipedia page says he's Turkish league MVP this year; that looks impressive.

    Normally I'm not sure about international players taking American jerbs, but seems promising so I'm OK if Rockets pursue.

    p.s. Looks like someone the Spurs would get.

    Alperen Sengun is my new Marcus Morris. This is the hill I'm dying on. He will be a top 3 player in this draft come at me.

    I remember your advocacy for Morris on draft night that year. He was a late bloomer; love his game now, but took some time.

    I wasn’t with you on Morris that night, but I’m with u on Sengun. I think he’s a high upside player; too much potential to pass up. Don’t think he makes it out of the lotto though so we’d have to pull a serious move to get him.

    I think the Grizz moved up to take him at 10. Can we move up to number 9 or 7 to grab him? would have to include wood.
