    I love watching this kid play. He’s like a modern Scola with defense

    The post moves definitely remind me of Scola, but he's done some things in these two meaningless games that I never saw Scola do. Can't wait to see what he can do in the real NBA.

    OKC has gotten pretty bitter about this trade.

    Imagine SGA and Sengun developing together. Would be a fearsome duo 2, 3 years down the line.

    Methinks Kanter traumatized them more than any of us realized.

    It's OK, by the time he finishes scouting middle schoolers, he will forget!

    He was completely off. I mean, he fell WAY past top 10. Terrible take @CXbby

    I'm with you. Sengun will have to keep developing his game, but he's got that "it" factor. When people start really scouting him for games, they'll be more ready for that astonishing drop step and spins. He'll need a few more go-to moves. Can't wait for him to meet Hakeem. The Dream finally has a worthy pupil!

    Sengun is going to be a star player, I believe Sengun could be considered to be the best big men in the draft. Also, I believe if he was drafted in last year draft we would be the best big man in last year draft. When Sengun get his outside shooting going...we have a STAR!!!!

    You know how much I love advanced stats so I've always liked Sengun, especially with right pieces around him.

    But you and OP were the true believers, you guys were all in regardless of the fit.

    And you guys were F'ing right.

    It's also interesting that the DeanonDraft guy thought that Sengun was the better fit with MOBLEY - and Jaygup!

    In any event he is a Rocket and like everyone else I've joined the church of Sengun.

    His offense (and his translator - :D) caught my attention but it was his DEFENSE that's made me a true believer.

    But happy wife, happy life.

    Uh, happy translator, I mean.
