    from Pop coaching tree, Ime knows how important it is to recruit at least one or two from France, here you go, Sidy Cissoko, teammate of Sccot.

    Boban will make Zach Edey obsolete.

    I’d love to see them take Edey.

    Cissoko is definitely an interesting diamond in the rough. Got overshadowed a bit by being Scoot's teammate, but showed flashes of some serious potential. If you watch highlight reels of Henderson a lot of his best assists were finished by Sidy. He's still so raw though that he might be a guy who would end up simply changing G-League jerseys from Ignite to RGV for most of the year. Interesting upside play, though. Two other guys with similar profiles (raw, high-upside kids from Europe) are Coulibaly and Klintman.

    Good Q. I though for a sec, and came with Giddey and Ja Will, in hindsight. Then realized those are Presti's picks. Presti will go down as the greatest drafting GM in history, I think....

    He could be. Some front offices' draft boards might have any 5 of these guys higher:

    Wemby
    Scoot
    Thompson Twins
    Miller
    Walker

    My tier breaks would be:

    Tier 1:
    Wemby

    Tier 2:
    Scoot

    Tier 3:
    Amen, Miller

    Tier 4:
    Ausar, Cam, Walker

    yea.
    actually i shared scouting report here for fun, tbf i think Sidy still pretty raw, his moves looks stiff, and lack of rhythm.

    Edey is this generation's answer to Artis Gilmore. The American Yao, the White Shaq, the limber Mark Eaton, the better looking Steven Adams. No downside for a second team center. I say bring him on and let the big man hunt (if he's available for a cheap and reasonable later pick).

    Miller is in his own tier, shooting is way too important in this time.

    The Canadian Yao, I think.

    Pristi wouldn’t have done that and neither should we have. Both our players will be way better than those two. Probably starting this year with a decent coach.

    I'd either take the player with the highest upside here, maybe an international prospect with the highest boom or bust potential - or a rim protector that preferably can also be a switch defender that can hit the 3.

    If he had all those attributes he wouldn’t be available at 20

    Might be closer to his brother in talent than people realize. Could be a good value pick at #20.
