    Another 6'6 scoring guard is low on the list of needs IMO. Saying Sharpe is the BPA solely using his high school tape is Andrew Wiggins all over again and basically just throwing darts with no organized rebuild plan.

    Yes but it does add another top level player to the mix.

    How many years do we do that with no structure? If the BPA is a guard every year just keep doing that? Alot will depend on draft slot, but Sharpe isnt BPA over the more routinely talked about prospects. Just reading a crystal ball. Have to be careful how much you gamble on projections.

    Well, you've got a 6'4" SG in Jalen Green and a 6'5" SG in Josh Christopher. I guess you're right, we don't have a 6'6" one yet.

    There's just so little we know about his actual basketball acumen. He has the talent to be a perennial all NBA player, or he could be lazy, unfocused trash.

    More talent is always better when you have a mid first round pick and a high pick. I think he would be 6 on my board behind Murray, but the only players he is indisputably behind for me are Holmgren and Smith. So I wouldn't be furious if we took him as high as 3.

    Im perfectly happy with trotting out a guard rotation of Jalen Green, KPJ, Josh and Daishen Nix next year.

    edit: delayed brain fart - I get it haha Sharpe would be our tallest guard. (if his measurements are accurate)

    Also he was 6'6" last year. Who knows if has grown any? Maybe he can play the 3. All I know is if we are at 4 and Paolo, Jabari, and Chet are gone, I am taking Sharpe over Ivey.

    I still think we should go Murray if we land 5, though I won’t complain if Sharpe is the pick.

    We definitely have to take him seriously as a top 4-5 pick. Hard to see him grading out ahead of the other top guys given the lack of a real body of work, but with individual workouts you never know; someone might fall in love. I wouldn’t draft him unless he can play the wing; we have our franchise 2-guard.

    A team would have to have extreme confidence in their ability to scout based on a couple of workouts to take him in the top 10

    I think OKC could, because they have a 2nd lottery pick (tons of future picks in general) and they swing for the fences on upside, but most teams in the top 10 can't afford to blow a pick

    How many high school sure-fire stars bust in college every year? It feels like a ton. Imagine if Hardy/Baldwin/Nzosa skipped playing last season, all would be in contention for a top 10 pick. Imagine if Emoni Bates could have avoided playing lol

    I'm happy he declared because at minimum it pushes 1 player back for our #17
