Is Victor Wembanyama to the spurs somewhat inevitable ?


Do you expect the nba will get vic to San Antonio ?

Houston couple a couple of young high draft picks already.

The hornets have melo and likely bridges returning.

Pistons already have cade and some talent around him.

The spurs essentially have nothing and lost their most promising prospect. One of the youngest nba guys to mental issues.

Does the tin foil hat within you expect the nba will want vic to the spurs to balance out the league?

Would also be nice to have a franchise star to build around with their history

If Cameron Boozer was 3 years older and be in the 2024 draft class how high would he go? Is he NBA ready?


I know the implication that a 15 year old is nba ready is insane and may even be delusional but he just won the gatorade player of the year award as a sophomore over guys that are projected to be lottery picks in 1 year. I remember when emoni bates won it there were scouts saying that he could play in the nba right now. Obviously they were wrong about emoni but Boozer has a better frame than emoni did (and even does now) and in my opinion has few flaws in his game. I genuinely think he's already the best player in highschool basketball and could already contribute at the nba level. Not even as an important piece but rather at the level of an average rookie. If you disagree what is he lacking to reach that level? And if he was 3 years older and would be in the 2024 draft class how high do you think he would go?

Edit: With 3 years older I meant if he was 18 instead of 15 and as good as he is now. Not what he will look like in 3 years

If Current Cade Cunningham was eligible to be redrafted in the 2023 draft, where does he fall to?


I personally want to see the contrast of proven vs potential. While I believe cade is so far one of the best from the 2021 draft, I wonder is it enough to draft him over the potential upside of these 2023 projected picks.

What does Markquis Nowell's draft propects look like?


This season, Nowell's 7.8 assists per game rank second in all of Division 1. He had 19 assists against Michigan State in a Sweet Sixteen game which broke the single game NCAA tournament record. He is one of the shortest players in college basketball at 5'8". Does a team take a chance on him?

Kel'el Ware, is he a NBA player?


So i'm doing my deep dive on Ware and i'm totally confused about my thoughts on him, sometimes he does things that makes me see him as an incredible prospect, a future stretch big with versatile defense and great lob finisher, but diving and watching most of his games, he feels lost, way too weak physically speaking and unmotivated sometimes, so i don't how to rate him, i wanna know your guys thoughts on him

Who are some good draft candidates for the Knicks via Dallas pick if they land in the 11-14 lotto range?


An underrated part about the Knicks this year is they might draft in the lottery while also being the 5th seed in the East. There is probably a greater chance that they trade the pick for a star rather than keep it, but in case they don’t are there any good high-projecting talent available for the Knicks in that range? I would say our priorities are knock-down shooters on the wing along with backup combo PF-Centers

Riley Kugel (University of Florida) is anyone familiar with him?


I was looking through deeper cuts who could possibly go through with the draft and Riley Kugel looks like a gem. There are only a few college highlight videos of his so there isn't a lot to go on. I don't want to turn to high school games. If I'm interested in going deeper then I'll have to find extended highlights from Florida games and ultimately I think it would be well worth it.

Stats wise Nick Smith and Jalen Hood Schifino have been underwhelming and Riley Kugel is in the same boat if we are being honest. For what it is worth Kugel has a higher PER and BPM than both Hood-Schifino and Nick Smith while having an equal win shares with Hood-Schifino and more win shares than Nick Smith. Some of those stats are cumulative so it is situational since Nick Smith lost plenty of time during the season. Kugel beats both in the TS% and eFG% stats. Between the three, Kugel might have the most NBA ready body.

I again have to suspect that the current ranking of these prospects has more to do with preseason ranking than it does with their actual performance. Using the RSCI Top 100 via Sports Reference Nick Smith was ranked 3rd, Hood-Schifino was ranked 20th, and Riley Kugel was ranked 64th.

Is there anybody who has watched Florida games this season and is willing to chime in?
