He has the upside athletically like Kuminga had so he won't fall far, I just don't see him being the top pick in this class. Wiseman went #2 and he only played 3 games at Memphis. I agree that Duren won't be the #1 pick but I think he'll definitely go top 5. Especially if he can show some 3P shooting potential. 2 minutes ago, Sllim Pickens said: Same with Hardy. I think he has potential and the athletic ability to be a top pick, he just will have to prove it. I don't think he is as sure of a bet in the G League as Green was and if he struggles there, he might not have enough athletically to be a top 5-8 pick like Kuminga was. I think Hardy can be a Brad Beal type which is solid but isn't a ceiling like the guards at the top of this years draft. Hardy is solid but I'm not really a huge fan of his to be honest. He reminds me of Markelle Fultz as a prospect and I think his ceiling is a Jamal Murray type of player. He's definitely a tier below Green athletically and kind of a ball hog. I think he will produce in the G-League though, he's going to have the ball in his hands at all times. 5 minutes ago, Sllim Pickens said: As for Baldwin, he does remind me some of Porter. Porter fell due to injury and didn't play much, similar to Wiseman they were drafted on potential and hype due to little tape. But if Baldwin plays doesn't show out, he could slide down boards some. Again not sure he drops out of the first round but could be a later pick like Jalen Johnson was this year. Yeah Porter definitely fell due to injury but he also wasn't very good in the very few games he played at Missouri. I think PBJ will be fine, we just saw Obi Toppin go 8th coming out of Dayton. Johnson fell because he wasn't very good at Duke, the team got better once he left. And he has a questionable camp around him, IIRC he switched HS' like 3 times in a year. 9 minutes ago, Sllim Pickens said: The Pistons could use some bigs. I would love a Paolo or Chet if chet bulks up as I think our guards are solid but could use some more athleticism on the wing. Bey is solid but he and maybe Hayes can and will need to be upgraded eventually but having some scoring options inside would help tremendously. Chet to me is the biggest boom or bust prospect in the class, I could see him being very good or a complete bust. Paolo would be a perfect fit with the Pistons, the Cade/Paolo p--r would be filthy. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
