It's also incredible that there's a possibility OKC ends up with two top 5 picks.

it would require ORL being extremely lucky, but ORL could too if CHI continues ****ting the bed. i'm at the point with CHI where I'd almost rather win some games because I'm afraid their 1st isn't gonna convey

With Lavine expected to miss significant time they may crap the bed the rest of the season. They're currently 9th in the lottery standings but they're only 2 games back of 7th and they have a pretty tough stretch of games coming up with Boston, Cleveland, Charlotte, Miami x2, NYK, Milwaukee, Atlanta, and Philadephia.

There are obviously a ton of very good prospects at the top of the draft but it's a deep class. 

Guys I like post lottery: 

• Josh Christopher | SG | Arizona State

• Sharife Cooper | PG | Auburn

• Ayo Dosunmu | PG | Illinois 

• Chris Duarte | SG | Oregon

• Usman Garuba | C | Spain

• Ziaire Williams | F | Stanford

• Josh Giddey | PG | Australia 

• Davion Mitchell | PG | Baylor

• Jeremiah Robinson-Earl | F | Villanova 

• Charles Bassey | C | Western Kentucky 

• Isaiah Todd | F | G-League

• Brandon Boston | SG | Kentucky

• Joel Ayayi | SG | Gonzaga

• Ibou Diankko Badji | C | Spain

I don’t really get why he declared

Same questions I had for DJ Steward and Matthew Hurt who both declared and hired agents when neither guy is likely going to be drafted.

Ziaire was disappointing and Christopher pretty much quit on Hurley.  This draft is rough if these guys are lottery picks.

Neither guy is going to be a lottery pick.

i think Ziare could be. Some team could pick him based on potential.. He has tools to work with.  With that being said I hope teams pass on him so he can fall to one of the late Rockets picks. lol

Ziare will probably go in the 10-20 range depending on how he looks during the pre-draft process. Patrick Williams wasn't very productive, although he was more efficient that Ziare, and he just went top 5.

It'll be interesting to see how the top of the draft shakes out. I'm assuming Cade goes #1 but Mobley could also be the first pick depending on who wins the lottery. And that the top 4 will be Cade, Mobley, Suggs, and Green in some order with Scottie Barnes and Jonathan Kuminga going 5/6.

perfect draft for teams who is expected suck and will be taking guards early in this year's draft.  hopefully the rockets are one of those teams.

Yeah, next years draft is pretty forward/big heavy at the top, although Hardy is super legit. I think Jalen Suggs would be a perfect fit in Houston.
