He can handle the ball and pass but I wouldn't make him a PG. NBA speed is much faster than what he is seeing and producing. He would be a great wing player is see a blend of T-Mac and Jalen Rose as far as handles, passing and scoring.

I'm in the Jalen Green team, but the 2021 draft has a tonne of really strong prospects at this stage. Really interesting to see how the G-League goes with Jalen Green, Jonathon Kuminga and Daishen Nix
Any guys who might possibly slide to our first round pick?

He can run the point in the half court. That's what I care about the most. The vast majority of playoff games are won in the half court.

If we wanna push the tempo on offense, we could use him off the ball as well. He's a terrific shooter.

I don't mind running offense through him, just don't see the consistent burst to get by smaller guards is all. You could use him like Luka, he can shoot over PGs and post on PGs if a PG switches onto him. It's best not to ask him to be a PG and cover PGs though. If someone wants to trade Brown for him I understand that move as Cade may have higher level playmaking. Im more about trying to build around the Js.

I'm just going to leave this here.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XVfr8_MPETY

40 points and 11 rebounds on 12-21 from the floor, 3-8 from 3 and 13-14 from the FT line

The kid is amazing!

- He's a 6'8'' with a 7' wingspan.
- He's an unselfish ball handler with elite BBIQ!
- He can create his own shot.
- He can create shots for his teammates.
- He's a great shooter (43.2% from 3 on 4.8 attempts per game, 85% from the FT line on 6.3 attempts per game).
- He can shoot 3s off the dribble!
- He can play on or off the ball (which means he'd be a great fit next to Tatum).
- He can guard multiple positions.

He can do it all!

If I were Danny, I'd seriously consider trading Brown on draft night for Cunningham + whatever else we can get.

For instance, let's say the Wizards win the lottery.

Brown to the Wizards for Cunningham + Bertans + Wagner

How does CC compare to Tatum?

Is he considered a higher level prospect at the same age?
Cunningham is nearing consensus #1 pick status in a deep draft, so he's a higher level prospect. Very similar college level prospect to Fultz

Looks like he is headed to Minnesota or Detroit
C/PF-Horford, Baynes, Noel, Theis, Morris,
SF/SG- Tatum, Brown, Hayward, Smart, Semi, Clark
PG- Irving, Rozier, Larkin

It depends. A week ago I would have said maybe, given the way our team was playing. Now that we're back in the latter third of the draft we won't have access to Green or Kuminga, but there are a bunch of athletic rangy 4/5 guys in that range, like Isaiah Jackson, Kai Jones and Greg Brown. All pretty raw, but serious athletes.

I'd prefer we go a different way though, personally. I'd love for us to get Josh Giddey (18 year-old playing in the NBL, where LaMelo Ball and RJ Hampton played), he's looking better than Hampton did down here. I also coached against him when he played my little brother's team a few years ago and he whooped us ;D

A couple of other guys would be Chris Duarte, a nice wing shooter who played alongside PP last year at Oregon, or Davion Mitchell, a 3&D point guard with the strength to defend 2s and nice passing ability. I also like Day'Ron Sharpe - reminds me of Andrew Bynum

25 points, 8 rebounds and 5 assists in the big 12 semifinal against #2 Baylor.

4-10 from 3 (40%)
7-16 from the floor (43.8%)
7-8 from the FT line (87.5%)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EIQ6LaKstK0

Check out the play at 0:44 of the video. That's an unstoppable move! How many 6'8''+ players around the league can consistently hit step back 3s? Fortunately, we already got one in Tatum!

If I were Danny, I'd sell the farm to put Cunningham next to Tatum! The kid is a future super star! I absolutely love his game!

So Cunningham for the 1st time is put into the limelight in the NCAA tournament and with three minutes left in the game, Cunningham has 8 points on 2-11 shooting, 1-6 on threes with 4 turnovers, 3 rebounds and 1 assist.

Oh, his team is struggling to stay ahead of world reknown basketball power, #13 Liberty.

But, yeah, let's trade Tatum or Brown for this kid because he is supposedly transcendent....not.

I like Cade, heís got All-Star written all over him but Iím not 100% sold on him being a transcendent player. Heís not a physical force, he doesnít have the vision of Doncic or Simmons nor does he have a great first step or change of pace. He reminds me of a taller stronger Shaun Livingston.

For me the best long term prospect is Evan Mobley, he has everything to be elite at both ends. Mobley can bring the ball up, has decent passing for a 7 footer, great touch, very team oriented, never wastes possessions, he has a great motor, elite athleticism and something I love is when he blocks shots he is always trying to keep it in bounds or send it to a teammate, which shows his iq. Obviously though Mobley is more of a project because he needs to put on weight and bigs usually take longer to work in an NBA scheme.

Watched the game tonight and was not impressed at all. Michael Beasley vibes. Shooting stroke is whack. Its a knuckleball.
