praying for my miracle pick at 17: Patrick Williams.
next choice at 17: Achiuwa. Give him time to learn.
tolerable at 17: Hampton, Lewis, Maxey
IF: a guard at 17, then bigs at both 26 and 30: Stewart at 26 and Tillman at 30.
IF: P. Williams or Achiuwa at 17, then Stewart/Tillman at 26 and Bolmaro at 30.
(or Bolmaro at 26 and Stewart/Tillman or another big at 30.)
Lewis at 17 not "tolerable." He'd be a steal there. He is climbing boards. Some have him as top 10. Given ongoing knee concerns with Kemba, we have to really look hard at finding a PG who has starter potential in a couple of years' time. To me, Kira does, more than anyone who is available in our draft range.
One worry I have with Lewis is his lack or physicality and finishing at the rim.
To compare per https://www.barttorvik.com/
Lewis JR 117-203 shots at the rim 57%, 6 dunks in 31 games
Maxey 71-109 shots at the rim 65%, 7 dunks in 31 games
Terry 166-221 shots at the rim 75%, 4 dunks in 31 games
Maxey has the advantage of a much stronger frame over Lewis and Terry
Lewis is list at 6'3 165lbs with a 6'5" WS
Terry is listed at a similar 6'2 160 with no reported WS
Other elite guards with similar slight frames
6'3 175lbs 6'7WS
160-264 shots at the rim 60%, 28 dunks in 31 games
6'3 170lbs 6'6 WS
131-203 shots at the rim 64%, 20 dunks in 36 games
While I think Lewis Jr will be a solid NBA player I worry that his ceiling is as a backup and that really lowers his positional value.
