I'll do one more, since it is my thread :)

One prospect will fall dramatically on draft night. Scouts will be more cemented in their views, and even if a guy drops to them, they will still draft a different player that they fell in love with. Top 10 talent will be available in the late teens or twenties.

I was honestly psyched Bol bol was still on the board at #14 when the Cs were drafting last year. Can't believe he lasted until the mid-40s. That is a bit of an extreme example, but typically somebody slides well beyond their projected slot. Hopefully the Cs are ready to jump on said example if it happens again this year.

I agree with this. Someone projected in all mocks to go top 7 or 8 will slide to us.

Who will slide? I say Toppin, Haliburton or Okoro.  I think one of them could be available at 14, and can't say if I would be excited about any one of them. I doubt Danny would draft Toppin, not his kind of player, could see him drafting Haliburton and most definitely Okoro.
