    The legendary Moussa Diabate?

    EJ Liddell? Walker Kessler? Kendal Brown? Dalen Terry? Jalen Williams, Blake Wesley?Almost Nikola Jokic? Better then Banchero Roddy?

    I think we all assume this will get moved to move up from 17, and that feels like the likeliest scenario at the moment, but it could play out that they stay pat at 17 and still make a selection at 26. If someone they covet falls to 17, they may not have a need to use that pick to move up. Staying at 26 and netting someone like Kessler, Williams, Beauchamp, Jokic, etc. would be amazing.

    6’10 guy
    Can shoot from three
    Defense leaves a lot to be desired
    Very confident in himself/his abilities; Sees himself as a #1 option
    Maturity an issue
    Capable of 20/10

    What do you think?

    This where Stone thought BKLN would be so he is prepared and has someone targeted.

    Similar to last year, stone was ready for the mid round pick we would have gotten had we missed the protection. So he traded and got that player (sengun) too.

    Defensive anchor. Played against Banchero, Chet, Jabari, and Tari last year...did very well against all of them. Suns and Pacers have already worked him out. Hopefully we've been scouting him.

    Christian Braun. I want a Christian with leadership! Christian helped lead his team to the Championship. That's the Christian I want!

    Unlike others here I hope the Rox stay pat and keep the 26th. Lots of gems could be available.

    Kendall Brown
    Dalen Terry
    Jalen Williams (well ok prob not)
    Nikola Jovic
    Marjon B Champ
    Kessler
    Jaylin Williams
    John Butler (rookie CWood imo)
    Moussa Diabate

    The rox scouting team is insane picking guys on the low end of the draft so I'm confident we can get somebody good at 27.

    Number 26 picks are usually not good.

    Actually they waited too long. If they traded Wood last offseason or at the deadline they prob get more in return.

    Same thing with EG had an offer last deadline for 1st round pick they turned that down.

    #26 will be an asset for us for about as long as Boban, Burke, Brown and Chriss will be.
