    surreal athleticism- the blocked shots, esp. at 7:15 ...

    Would love to sign Ibou Badji and Santi Aldama as UDFA.

    Texas is down with it as long as they don't try to vote.

    Agreed. Lewis needs to be open to get off his 3-ball- he's not that tall and does not show a high release point.

    I like Ibou Badji's shotblocking. I would like him on a Exhibit 10 contract.

    Just won MVP of the Turkish league at 18 years old.

    19.2 pt (2nd in the BSL)
    9.4 trb (2nd in the BSL / 4.1 orb, 5.3 drb)
    2.5 ast
    1.3 stl
    1.7 blk (2nd in the BSL)
    2.3 to
    Shooting: 67.9 / 19 / 81.2

    He's climbing up the big boards and mocks. Hearing Top 10 and Lottery projections. People coming around and seeing he's not exactly a plodding traditional big man.

    Still developing for sure but his 7 foot wingspan + relentless energy + crazy hops is a great foundation.

    Intriguing to say the least. Wish he was more switchable.

    Going to be similar to Kevin Love/Domantas Sabonis love child.

    The more I watch Jalen Green the more I love his game.

    Who do you like better between Mobley and Holmgren?

    Getting either in the late first round would definitely be a steal.

    Tough call. Looking at the way Holmgren moves.. his handle, and shooting.. I think he's the higher ceiling prospect. Mobley is maybe better on defense? Idk. Hard to say without having seen Holmgren's freshman season.

    Would be cool to draft both lol.

    Neither will be available late first round, in any draft.

    I like him. Can he pass the ball well enough or is he is a blackhole?

    Lewis is more catch and shoot than shot creator.

    Lewis was top 7 player and compared to Kobe in HS for his crazy athleticism and prolific scoring but he has played 2 seasons at UF and his game has changed, I would not liken him to a black hole at all. He played alongside a ball dominant guard like Tre Mann without issue.

    I would say Lewis game has evolved to be more like Matisse Thybulle, defensive specialist wing.

    Special intangibles - leadership, character, work ethic, stamina, plays 1000 miles per hour every second on the court.

    Rockets need elite defense in the worst way.

    Thanks, we need defense in the worst way. He is able to put the ball on the floor and get to the basket quickly by himself to some extent too.

    The Rockets need talent. Even if it's developmental talent that may take a year or 3.
