    Curious. Isaiah Todd will still be available. Jalen Johnson might still be available too.

    Keon Johnson slipping. His shot must be horrible.

    Great shooter. Has potential to be better version of CWood. Right now though he is like Pre Detroit CWood suffers from shoot-itis and takes lots of bad shots esp from mid range.

    Mostly a one-dimensional type of guy from what I've read. He's a tall guy that plays outside. I think @ch44 had said he may be high on the Rockets' list... or at least on their list.

    Sengun has a higher ceiling though, he's a ceiling pick. Rockets don't need solid right now, they need to go up to the plate and swing for the fences each time. Once they have their all-stars, then they can go for solid.

    But sengun has star potential. Gotta swing for the fences at this stage.

    I wouldn’t have been surprised to see Sengun as high as 5 tbh. Players that produce at this level professionally you just can’t go wrong with.

    but overall i agree with your point. Player development is crucial but as cool as that is, talent is still the most important thing. No matter how hard you try, if you’re 5“8 and unathletic, you will never make it. Even with the best coaches in the world.

    I hope there is a "seriously high upside" guy we can target and send to the GLeague to develop (JJ/ GS)

    OR, I'd be just as happy to use one of the picks to dump Wall!!

    Wow!
    The knicks trade #19 for a future 1st and don't even get a 2nd rounder back for depreciation?

    Is Isiah still there?

    He is doing good as per asset collection is concerned. They got some nice pieces on top of those picks Dort, Poku and SGA arent exactly chopped liver.

    Yeah Presti bungled 3 MVPs but lots of teams couldnt even draft 1 MVP.

    I was hoping there would be a Jalen Johnson or Ziaire Williams when we pick again, but ... nope.
