    A guy who can create his own shot, and then can actually make it. Barring getting Embiid, Parker orWiggins, can Exum shoot ?  Can anyone recall if  Jordan was a great shooter, or did he develop the shot as he matured ?

    [/QUOTE]


    Well, no one has really seen him play, but.......rumor has it he can create his own shot better than any guard in the draft.

    He is being kept very low profile, because he wants to play for the lakers...........he could be a "Brian Shaw" and decide to stay in AUS if he's not drafted by them!  Same agent as koME!

    But, to your point, that's what some of the draftologists were saying out here as recently as two weeks ago.....................hope that helps!

    Why would anyone want to play for the Lakers?

    Just sayin'

    I know. Even the Kobester wants to leave so he can be with Phil.

    Re: Ideal Draft Picks #s1 & 2

    Wiggins seems too inconsistent.  I'm suspicious of his drive, motor, determination and intensity. 

    I like Embiid over Parker with our first pick and McBuckets with our second pick (will he still be on the board for our second pick?)

    Pass on Randle, his D sucks and we need a rim protector. 

    If we don't get a top 3 pick, I'd like to trade down and get Vonleh.  we NEED a rim protector. 


    Also, I predict a two-year tank and banner 18 in 2017!

    My pick #1 priorities are Embiid, Parker, Vonleh, Randle, Smart and Exum. In that order.

     

    My pick #2 choices are Early,Harrisons(plural), Gordon,Napier.

    I think Napier will not have all-star potential. Hes not as tall as Steph Curry or as good a shooter and handler nor is he Rondo/Rose type quick and fast.

    Just a solid role player with great big onions.(Jerryd Bayless)

    At 6-8 with nor reliable scoring skills Gordon is a role player at the next level. If that should change however, he could be another Ron Artest with explosion!

    Early is just a complete player. Harrisons and Napier are near complete for their positions. Good D and very good O.

    If Embiid & Parker stay in school and Wiggins, Randle & Exum are gone then trade the pick for a center ... Gortat, Monroe, Drummond, etc.

    With the 2nd pick get a SG or SF ... Staukas, Young, Warren, Grant or Hood

    [/QUOTE]


    The 2nd pick is going to be in the 18-19 range...  these guys will be long gone...  especially if Embiid & Parker don't come out.

    ^ That's why I think K.J. McDaniels is the sleeper of the draft and should be considered heavily with our second pick.  Aside from Embiid and Wiggins he may be the best defender in the draft. He has his warts as far as offensive IQ and Handle, but there will be questions with anybody at 18.  I see Tony Allen II. Here are the highlights from his scouting report.  

     "McDaniels has outstanding physical attributes for a NBA prospect, standing 6-6, with an excellent frame, long arms, and arguably the best athleticism of any wing player in the draft not named Andrew Wiggins. He's as explosive a leaper as you'll find.

    McDaniels has done a good job of finding ways to score this season, as he's posting an impressive 23.4 points per-40 minutes pace adjusted thus far, up from 16.7 last year. He's able to produce thanks to his ability to run the floor, crash the offensive glass, make open jumpers, and get to the free throw line. The lack of spacing and general scoring prowess alongside McDaniels makes it easy for opposing teams to key in on him at times.

    McDaniels can't be classified as a non-shooter, as his 1.7 makes per-40p from beyond the arc ranksa respectable 7thamong small forwards in our top-100 prospects. He's relatively reliable with his feet set and a glimmer of daylight (41%), and hits a terrific 87% of his free throw attempts (3rd bestamong all top-100 prospects)

    Despite the considerable improvement he's shown offensively this season, where McDaniels really shines as a NBA prospect is on the other end of the floor. His size, length, and tremendous athleticism allows him to guard up to four positions at the college level, and give him the potential to emerge as a lockdown defender in the NBA."

    as a clemson fan, i've watched most of KJ's games this year. he is definitely an exciting player. his handle and outside shot are somewhat suspect for a 6-6 guy who will play the 2 in the NBA. not saying he won't develop, just that we shouldn't expect the second coming of jordan. that said, he's an amazing dunker and shot blocker for his size. just needs to work on that shot.

    Agreed, his excellent free throw shooting leads me to believe there is hope there.  Plus at the 18 th pick if he just becomes a solid if unremarkable scorer, and a great defensive stopper than he's worth it.

    If we invest in a SF he's got to have some offensive game...he's got to be able to allow us to dump Jeff "Mr. Inconsistent Stumblebum" Green...if he plays D at an NBA acceptable level, that's great...but we have to get better across the board and get guys who let us divest ourselves of these so-called NBA "stars" who actually Suck on a nightly basis..and please, no comments about last year's playoff preformance by this "green" millstone....it's now ancient history and  when backed up by a lame and lousy year long effort means nothing...once two years of a career goes by, P-O-T-E-N-T-I-A-L is the most meaningless word in the dictionary in pro sports.

    Agreed Mel.  We have to try to upgrade at SF. It would be great if we could do that with our first pick by getting either Parker or Wiggins, but at the 18th pick you probably aren't getting someone who's going to come in and take Green's spot. IMO McDaniels has the intensity, athleticism, defense, and enough offensive skill to be a very solid player fairly quickly in the league.  But yeah, he's not gonna steal Greens starting spot right away, although I think he has as much chance to do that in a couple years as anyone we are going to get at that position in this Draft.  

    If we were to get Wiggins or Parker I might instead look for a 2, but even then I think KJ  is fast enough to play SG too.

    I just had a vision of Rondo, Wiggins, and KJ turning BOS into the new Lob City.

    My ideal scenario...

    Cs get the #1 and the 76ers get #2. If Danny plays his cards right and rumors are to be believed, the 76ers will prostitute themselves in order to get Wiggins. The Cs might be able to deal the #1 for the 76ers #2, #10, and 2 2nd rounders, plus trade a toxic contract like Bogans for Jason Richardson. Bogans still has 2 more seasons on his deal. Richardson's would expire at the end of the season. Then, the Cs would nab Embiid at #2, and the very underrated TJ Warren at #10. Then, there's always the Nets pick in the middle. A 3pt specialist would be nice at that spot.

    I agree it depends on the ping pong balls.  But, PHI will not take Embiid even at 2, they have Noel, and the #10 pick.  No need for the trade, IMO.   Bogans is not guaranteed, so he will be dealt at some point.  And I like the idea of trading him for a second round pick.  So, if it's us and PHI, in either order, they get Wiggins, and we get Embiid.  At 17?  Stauskas, Young or Hairston would be good.

    If we re-sign Hump, and get Embiid, we would have a decent frontcourt......and Rondo.

    Anyone else here praying everyday that Joel Anthony opts out???

    That would give the Cs 4 PFs (Bass, Sully, Oly, and Hump) and three Cs ( Embid, Anthony, and Colt 45). They would once again be near the cap limits and have to resign, trade, or let Rondo walk.
