    Green maybe starts, but not a lock with Wall and Gordon still on the roster. I’d be shocked if Sengun starts his rookie year.

    Still celebrating. I am going to write a magnum opus about this guy in a dedicated thread. Been studying him for months.

    Kid is like a more talented, less grounded Scola. Wonder how his D will develop as an NBA player though.

    High IQ, Great Passer, Great Rebounder, plays like Luis Scola in the Post. For a 18 year old he has muscles already, he is NBA Ready.

    It has the same feeling the Rockets traded for Luis Scola from the Spurs.
    Rockets trade for Alperen Sengun from OKC Thunder for 2 1st Rd Picks

    Scola / Enes Kanter type trajectory with a high upside.

    Clutch honestly is bad at evaluating Draft Talent.

    Wants Evan Mobley over Jalen Green

    Wanted Harold Miner over Robert Horry

    Nikola Jokic - 2nd Rd, Marc Gasol - 2nd Rd, Nikola Vucecic - Mid 1st Rd

    Enes Kanter Last Turkish Player

    For context Clutch said it was really close for them just leaned slightly more.

    Just opinions guys, people can have them. No poster shaming, no LoF like behaviors pls. Be nice.

    Maybe stone is reading clutchfans?

    Kevin Pelton ranked him the No. 1 prospect in this year’s draft. The analytics people love him, and anyone who wins a MVP is grown man's league deserves some props.

    I had read some about this kid before the draft. Had a conversation with my son about him about a month ago, and we both agreed it seemed unlikely the Rockets would be in a position to get him. I was so pumped when they did!
