    8-19 can definitely get some high-risk/high-ceiling type players like Giannis. Who y’all losing sleep about? Me? Giddey and Jones.

    Two picks allowed.

    Seems like the team with the pick right before the Rockets always takes the person we want. I don't want college hoops so this forum is really where I get my takes on college players. I haven't seen any mocks that have Kai Jones slipping past 15.

    KIspert is interesting though. Even Clutch posted about how much he would like to see the Rockets get him. Kispert is a name that is all over the board in most mocks. I think the Warriors would be a perfect fit for him at 14. I think he could slide into the Klay Thompson role very well. Run off Draymond's dirty screens and get good looks off the pass.

    Rockets have consistently been a poor 3 point shooting team and have taken more shots than any team in the league probably over the last 10 years, it would be nice to have a shooter like Kispert I think it would be like having road Ryno, all the time.

    In the list really just Kai Jones. The others can turn into good players but prob have a similar ceiling to Green.

    Overall def Scottie Barnes and Kuminga. Those 2 just lacking a working 3 pt shot and they could go no 1. Depending on how Barnes' body fills out he may not even need a 3 pt shot.

    Interesting comparison with Klay. Kispert is definitely a stop and pop shooter with instant offense.

    My 'other' vote is Charles Bassey. Dude puts in work on the court and that will always translate as long as you’re coordinated and CB is coordinated.

    Dude I'm falling for is Ibou Badji. 23/24 are probably too high to draft him even.

    then you get the shooting coach, you hire 10 of them if need be and fire them if they cant produce, then hire another 10 until you stumble into the right ones

    Bassey
    I'd take him at 24 because we need a 15 minute banger who will work his ass off but U rarely see him rated that high.

    Sengun.

    I'd be willing to trade Wood for the pick that nabs him.

    Well, shoot, at 52, I'd be lucky to bang that ass for 3 minutes, let alone 15.

    Wait, let me put on my glasses, read your post again......uh, never mind.
