    Durant is way quicker. Like 32.5 year-old Durant with a torn achilles is way quicker, has significantly more explosiveness.


    Wood is a better comp physically, and even then Wood has more hops. Zhou Qi, Pokusevski, Austin Daye, also come to mind. If he beefs up maybe Turkoglu?

    In the recent Iverson Classic, both Banchero and Holmgren went head to head and impressed. The rankings may have Holmgren ranked number one and Banchero as three, but NBA scouts were undecided. But one executive from a NBA finals contender had an interesting way to explain the difference between Banchero and Holmgren with regards to where they stood currently.

    “If I needed someone to throw into a NBA game tomorrow, Paolo Banchero could give my team 15 and 8 and fit in perfectly with our group in terms of skill, feel and competitiveness wise,” the executive said. “He has everything you look for at his position and plenty of room to grow too.”

    “But if I’m a lottery team picking who I think will be the best long-term prospect five years down the road, though, I’m taking Chet. There’s just more downside there.”
