The Orlando Magic are reportedly very interested n Alperen Sengun at #8. For me he's one of the biggest boom/bust prospects in the class. If he can extend his shooting range and defend in space, I think he's somewhere in between Sabonis and Nurkic. If he can't I think he's Tyler Hansbrough. @KhanYouDigIt

Sengun intrigues me. Seems like the two names connected with the Magic the most right now is Suggs and Sengun. If they came away with that, I would be happy. I think the only picks they make at 8 that I won’t be ok with is Kispert or Wagner.

Dengue will get a lot of points / rebounds / blocks / steals / assists in the NbA

 

the question is does his defense hold and does he do it within the flow of a game or does he need to be forced post ups.

 

I believe in him.

Saw a comparison I liked for Green today. Said he often gets compared to big guards like Lavine because of his height, but play style is more like a 6'6 Ja Morant.

i dont see that comparison. Morant isnt a sniper from 3 like Green is. The Lavine comparison is perfect IMO. Both are crazy athletic and both are 3 level scoring threats.

Yeah I think the Lavine comparison is fair, Green isn't nearly the playmaker that Morant was as a prospect but a way better 3 point shooter.
