Or this new kid who seems to be a late bloomer from the sound of the commentary:

Hard pass. These lanky 7 footers are so unbelievably injury prone now a days.

These are the guys that are going to be available (probably) with the Kings pick..

Nickeil Alexander-Walker: yes. Really good two way guard. Comparison - Arron Afflalo/Wesley Matthews.

Rui Hachimura: yes. Fiery competitive PF who plays bigger than his size. Great team player, good attitude. Comparison - Thaddeus Young/Wilson Chandler

Jaxson Hayes: No. Impressive shot blocker, limited offensively. Sounds like a guy we drafted last year. Comparison - Lesser Hassan Whiteside.

Brandon Clarke: No. same deal as above, shorter version. Comparison - Tyrus Thomas.

Jontay Porter: Yes. Could have been a Top 10 pick if he didnít miss this year due to injury. Big man who can really stroke it. Good fit for Stevens system. Comparison - Brad Miller/Channing Frye

Sekou Doumbouya: Torn. The epitome of a risky pick. Really young and likely years away from contributing. Could be the next Pascal Siakam or the next Jerome Moiso. There will be at least 3 guys who are safer picks at that spot.


Two choices - the pain of discipline or the pain of regret. The pain of regret hurts a whole lot more.

You don't want good not great players since we already have too much and is easy to sign minimum veterans/ring chasers anyway, you want to take a swing at those high potential players

Bol Bol has been discussed quite a bit on here. He's out for the college season with a navicular bone fracture like Embiid had. On a pod cast, Sam Vecenie had him at 14.  Called him very talented but questioned his effort and work ethic.  Bol Bol will also need to add significant weight and strength.

Didn't realize that. That same injury caused Embiid to miss 2 years of basketball. Maybe that's why he's not projected as a lottery pick.

I like Alexander the center for Tennesee and Admiral is a beast.  They may fall late because some of them are upper classmen.  Admiral has a pro body and shoots I like around 40% from the three.  Alexander is long and good around the rim.

This.   Shoot for the moon.  We are very deep, so letís take a risk like Sekou even if he is stashed overseas for a year or 2.

If Bol Bol is picked outside of the lottery and close to 20, there is really no reason, except a better available prospect, to pass on his talent.  Outside of my concerns whether he can add muscle, there isn't much to dislike that can't be fixed.
