kobe brown, recently declared for the draft with the option to return to Missouri. He will be an interesting guy to watch during presraft process. He is listed at 68 250 and is reported to have a 73 WS. Despite that size he has been listed as a guard at times in college and plays a very perimeter orientated game. If he really is his listed size he is an interested option for the Cs to draft.

If we get ousted in the semi-finals, would you consider trading either Jayson Tatum or Jaylen Brown + enticing package for the #1 pick to get Victor Wembanyama?

Based on evaluations, I don't think any team would be willing to trade the 1st pick. Teams are that high on him as a prospect.

It's a pointless question, nobody would trade Wembenyama for those guys. I don't know if Wembenyama is available at all, full stop.

I saw a Sports Illustrated article pushing the idea of, in the case of Dallas jumping into the top 4 (but not #1), trading Brown for #4, Hardaway Jr., Bullock and Kleber. A Taylor Hendricks or Brandon Miller level player would be very intriguing as a long-term Horford replacement. I probably wouldn't do it, as the players we're getting aren't very good compared to other potential hypothetical packages, but a team of the below would be curious to me. We would still be a playoff team IMO, on the assumption that Brogdon could still be that 18/6/5 guy he was in Indy.

White / Smart
Brogdon / Hardaway Jr.
Tatum / Bullock
Horford / Hendricks
Williams III / Kleber

Ultimately, I don't see many top teams, in terms of picks, being into Jaylen, besides Houston or Dallas. Portland perhaps, if they go all in on another Dame run, but I don't know if there is a package there.

The official measurements from the combine:

https://www.nba.com/stats/draft/combine-anthro?SeasonYear=2023&dir=D&sort=STANDING_REACH

Edey with a 9,10.5 standing reach
9' 7.5" rather. Unless you see a different thing on your screen.

Adem Bona's standing reach is really impressive. Only 6'8" without shoes (so an NBA 6'10"), and his wingspan is only 7', but his standing reach is 9' 2.5".

Nope, your right. Hard to read chart.... Thx.

Only 6'6" but I do like him. No sense in taking him if we keep Grant.

That guy Gradey Dick looks really good. Size, speed, legit shooter. He is going to be a good starting SF in the league.

Poor mans Reggie Miller (which is still a very solid player)

Saw a mock draft with Dereck Lively going late 1st round. He'd be a nice pickup for BOS if they could trade in. Maybe dangle Pritchard for a late 1st if Lively is still on the table.

Big center to give us some real size off the bench next season.

Apparently he has a 78 wingspan. With the lack of big man prospects, his value may artificially rise for teams after a big. Hes not someone Im particularly interested in though, think there are lots of better 4/5 options like Jackson-Davis, or big forwards.

Yeah I think Gradey will have a long career, but he may never be an all-star level.  But when you are that big, and your 3 ball is that smooth, just stay healthy and work hard and you will have a place in the NBA.  I watched him play for Kansas a lot last year.  He is a pretty pure shooter, seemed completely big12 ready as a 1 and done freshman.  He is super long, hustles and moves without the ball on offense, and is a decent defender.
